Cosmetic care that stops at the surface is only fighting half the battle. This is the philosophy of the staff at Eternal Wellness MedSpa & Salon, and its various aestheticians and technicians aim to rejuvenate and revitalize clients' spirits with their beauty services. To do so, they incorporate traditional spa techniques, such as Swedish and deep-tissue massage, with medical-grade products and technology. A cosmetic laser system and Vibraderm exfoliating machine fit right in with the center's arsenal of aesthetic equipment, which also includes infrared light skin-tightening devices. Colon hydrotherapy machines and 21-day cleanses help clients shed weight and toxins. Even something as straightforward as a new hairstyle or freshly polished set of nails can revitalize spirits and give clients the confidence they need to finally assemble their home's particle accelerator.
Professional photographer Enrique Alonzo uses his trusty camera to preserve the personality and immortal emotions of his subjects. Whatever milestone you'd like to commemorate—a new baby, engagement, college graduation, or a particularly successful spray-tan session—Enrique will shoot it in style at his cozy studio. After smiling, smirking, grinning, and beaming for an hour, photographees can put their $100 credit toward prints from the studio session, which are available in sizes ranging from single-pose wallet shots ($74.95/24) to 30”x40” wall portraits ($509.95+). Grouponers also get access to four custom packages combining wallets, gift portraits, and wall portraits in up to three poses ($79.95–$599.95), and an additional 25% discount will be applied to any print purchases after the $100 credit’s used up.

Zone Action Park thrills family members young and old with themed fun zones that quench thirsts for go-karting, bouncing, mini golf, and batting practice. The Speed Zone pits kids as young as 3 years old against each other for zipping go-kart action, whereas a bounce area lets them hop safely on inflatable jumps or slides. Batters practice against slow- or fast-pitch machines in the Strike Zone. Inside, the Game Zone fosters friendly competition with family-friendly games such as Guitar Hero fueled by fresh pizza from an onsite restaurant that happily houses large parties or birthdays.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. For 30 minutes, you'll move around a circuit that positions machines inward so that you'll have a chance to laugh with your fellow fitness frontierswomen. Because you're all at different stations, you won't feel like you're in competition with anyone but yourself—and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music will include cues to let you know when it's time to move on to the next station. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making and each membership can be used toward unlimited visits and free weight-management classes with trained professionals.
