Fitworks is home to a dedicated cadre of certified muscle architects who guide eager physiques through intense, small group workouts. Peruse the schedule before sampling a tension-undoing yoga class or a weekend-morning muscle-pump session, ideal for prepping for an underwater bench-press that will determine the office's next round of promotions. One-hour Zumba classes harness the rhythmic power of merengue, conga, belly dancing, and more to kill calories while resuscitating sleepy toes. After classes, students can freshen up or flex unused singing muscles in Fitworks' shower facilities.

Exposed wooden beams. Flickering candles. Stone Buddha statues. Iuventus Spa resembles a temple, and that's just what owner Sandra Woodring envisioned when designing the space; in fact, she considers her spa a temple for those in search of beauty and healing. Her treatments range from traditional hot-stone massages and European facials to chocolate body wraps and citrus body scrubs. The healing element comes in with cleansing detox programs and high-frequency treatments, which break down the electromagnetic forces that cause sickness.
Sashay into Spa Walden’s luxurious salon and shed worldly worries along with deftly snipped strands of your tousled mane. A beautiful layout calms patrons like the sound of dehumidifiers being smashed to bits with a peen hammer as a skilled staff of snippists manicures manes with each woman’s cut and style. Customers can buttress their coiffures with colorful pizzazz by opting for a color or partial-highlight treatment that lures admiring looks much more effectively than fitting heads with albatross nests. Each visitor is greeted with warm hospitality, providing a memorably enjoyable experience.
Growing up on the shores of the Black Sea in Romania, Maria Suciu found herself surrounded by beauty. Her appreciation for aesthetics was not only inspired by the breathtaking beaches, therapeutic resorts, and glassy waters—which are believed to have curative powers—but also by her mother, who taught her how to fetchingly care for her skin, hair, and nails. After years of helping others strengthen their businesses as a public-relations adviser, Suciu shifted careers paths and traveled to America to share all she had learned about inner and outer wellness.
Suciu is now the owner and managing aesthetician of Callatis Spa, where she uses European-style techniques and organic, herbal formulas to pamper skin and boost outer allure. Callatis, which translates to the most beautiful, was the name of an ancient Greek colony that once inhabited the same shores that nurtured Suciu’s passion for performing cosmetic treatments. As a reiki master, Suciu also aims to balance the body and mind, targeting negative energy caused by palling around with delinquent magnets. Soothing fragrances and relaxing music permeate the spa's interior, which is small and intimate for highly personalized services.
