A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, Title Boxing Club maintains a network of dozens of studios spread across 19 different states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes. Each workout uses the heart-healthy exercise of cardio training to satisfy people’s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Participants build lithe, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags, and build flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.

Following in the footsteps of the countless reflexologists who have come before them, the practitioners at ENJOY Foot Spa aim to alleviate tension and stress by manipulating pressure points in the hands and feet. By using maps that show which organs or glands each pressure point corresponds to, they can ease discomfort throughout the body and possibly even boost overall energy levels. Though focused on the appendages, ENJOY's treatments also include massages of the upper body, back, arms, and face. Some of the spa rooms have two beds, so clients may choose to enjoy their treatments individually, with a companion, or just give their purse a more comfortable place to sit.
Step inside Foot Palace, and it becomes instantly clear that the spa is about more than just soles, toes, and a chance to take off socks. In tranquil treatment rooms, massage therapists work their magic across the entire body, while other experts use acupressure along the back. These relaxing treatments complement Foot Palace's signature service: reflexology.
By massaging targeted areas of the foot, the reflexology practitioner works to release tension throughout the rest of the body, as well as address issues such as headaches and hypertension. Therapists might also incorporate Chinese medicines and treatment add-ons, such as aloe to nourish the skin.

Mouths or teeth with visible ailments can benefit from the office's range of cosmetic services; the staff fills in dental gaps with natural-looking and durable replacements such as composite fillings, porcelain veneers, and grilled steaks.
