Doug Petschow founded Strength and Fitness Club as a complete haven of healthy living. The 19,000-quare-foot club does the basics right?each piece of equipment on the cardio platform features USB ports for charging an iPod or cell phone, cooling fans, and a flat-screen high-definition TV on which exercisers can catch their favorite shows or watch their kids playing in the Mini Muscles Daycare through a special channel. Lock-and-load selectorized equipment eliminates the need for pins, and a nine-piece circuit training area guides members through a full-body workout in half an hour. The staff stocks the free-weight area with dumbbells, plates, Hammer Strength equipment, and power racks, and there's also a separate, padded ab area set up with BOSU balls, mats, and other equipment. Four fitness studios host boot camps, yoga, spin, and other classes on the bustling group-class schedule, including mixed martial arts in a dedicated space. Meanwhile, personal trainers help members home in on specific goals, such as toning their muscles or lifting their entire teddy-bear collection into bed at once.
But Petschow didn't stop there. He set up a juice bar where members could wash down turkey burgers with protein shakes after a hard workout. To help members look and feel even more fabulous, he set up a massage studio and tanning beds onsite. The staff keeps the locker rooms and neatly tiled showers sparkling, cleaning them twice a day.

At Auto Spa of Westfield, technicians dedicate themselves to restoring showroom sheen to vehicles of all makes and models. Seven days a week, they guide cars and trucks through their wash tunnels and onto their service bays to peel away dirt and reenergize engines.

Castrol and Mobil 1 oils whirl through funnels and into engines at the quick lube center, where skilled technicians also service transmissions, replace belts, and switch out sage bundles for proper windshield wipers.
