Tspoons' classes cover a wide range of topics both commonplace and arcane. The Vegetarian class is dedicated solely to creating treats such as veggie paella and spicy North African harissa sauce, while the Spring Seasonal class centers on foods such as stuffed artichokes and apricot-glazed pork chops. Sushi Favorites, on the other hand, teaches you how to slice up your own spicy tuna and California rolls, maki sushi, veggie tempura, miso soup, and more. And the Party Food course's shrimp poppers, Mexican tortilla and chorizo casserole, and lemon cake with strawberry buttercream will protect your next party from your jealous ex's every attempt to poop it.

Monkey bars glint in the sun, surrounded by a grassy expanse and a line of giddy guests waiting their turn in line. But these jungle-gym enthusiasts aren’t children—they’re the muscular boot campers in Training Camp’s expansive backyard. In the verdant field, certified trainers lead small, motivated groups through a Cross Training workout of the day, challenging them with sprints around the 1/8–mile track, ropes that hang from lofty trees, or lifting weights in the outdoor weight room. They switch up the routines daily to keep muscles interested, and they scale exercises to suit the fitness levels of all guests.
Training Camp’s instructors also move inside the 4,000-square-foot facility to lead hot-yoga classes. They modify moves within an exposed-brick and soft-floor studio, helping students deepen their stretch as hot air loosens muscles. When not in classes, students can unwind in the smoothie bar and lounge, sinking into the cozy leather couches and awaiting a turn in the private massage room.
