At Evolve Health & Fitness’ mirror-lined studio, exercisers exterminate calories, bolster core strength, and build endurance through gravity, cycling, and fusion fitness classes or personal-training programs. During Pilates-esque gravity classes, students square off against the Gravity Training System, a remorseless workout machine with customizable settings that targets the core, full body, or specific muscle groups using the exerciser’s own body weight. Fusion classes, like a hip-hop producer/community-college professor, borrow from multiple disciplines, harvesting techniques from circuit workouts, spinning classes, and gravity training. Because the gym caps each session at eight students, participants reap the benefits of a comfortable environment and plenty of face-time with instructors.

The staffers at Cruiser King help pedalers to stay on the road with an impressive supply of bikes for sale or rent, handy cycling gear, and comprehensive maintenance services. At Cruiser King’s two locations, employees oversee a steady supply of the latest bikes from Hampton Cruisers and Fuji, doling them into the waiting hands of new owners or riders borrowing them for excursions, which can range from one hour to one week to cross-Atlantic cruises. Though the shop is known for its top-shelf beach cruisers, it also rents out mountain bikes, inline skates, and surfboards.

Even though it derives its name from its street address, Mission Surf could also be named for its literal mission: to get people out in the water. The water-sports shop does everything it can to encourage its customers to surf and paddleboard, from renting out equipment and wetsuits ideal for enjoying a sunny day or attending underwater business meetings. In addition to its surfing gear, the shop also carries bikes from renowned brands including Kona and Linus.
