Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing. All four limbs get in on the bag-bludgeoning action at iLoveKickboxing as each class (a $15 value per class) provides a full-body workout that tones arm, leg, and tentacle muscles while tightening the body’s core and improving balance. Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags.
Though the staff of Lana’s Place is adept at everything from tinting and cutting hair to grooming and polishing nails to administering effective body-slimming treatments, one look at the menu of services makes it clear that the eclectic salon’s main focus is skin. The team of skilled aestheticians uses a range of tools and ingredients to lend potency to its skincare services, including 24-karat gold that refines skin and microneedles that smooth wrinkles by spurring the body’s natural collagen production. The menu of services includes a mix of relaxing and problem-targeting treatments to help clients keep their minds clear and their skin glowing, much like meditating with a squirm of glow worms. This skin-pampering focus even extends to other salon treatments, where aestheticians might incorporate skin-smoothing products into pedicures, massages, and waxing treatments.
Before the creative process even begins, visitors at Sunshine Gifts & Ceramic Art Studio are faced with a few choices: What shape? What about size? And what color? It's enough to unleash the meekest of imaginations. After browsing through more than a hundred raw ceramic bisques that line cubby-hole shelves, potential art-makers can then choose any combination of glazes before establishing a workspace at one of the studio's tables. Staffers standby to provide any needed guidance during the creative process, supplying things like sponges, brushes, and stencils to create a beautiful finished product. All glazes and firing costs are included in the cost of each piece, and creations are food-safe and ready for pick up in about a week.

An acclaimed online shop, LittleGifts honors man’s best friend—and a few of his other pals too—with a slew of pet-themed gifts and accessories. Dog lovers can choose their favorite breed—from fluffy shih tzus to honorable great danes—to emblazon on their item of choice, be it something big, such as an umbrella or garden flag, or something discrete, such as a magnet or a baby’s forehead. Beyond canines, the shop carries merchandise modeled after more than 20 other animals including cats, turtles, and even turkeys. Pets can get in on the action themselves, thanks to sparkly charms for their collars and wag tags marked with titles, such as "boss," "flirt," and "best in show."
