SeaFit Studio's encouraging exercise instructors lead groups through Lagree Fitness classes, a Pilates-based workout developed by trainer Sebastien Lagree that combines cardio movements with intense strength training. Inside the sunny studio, rows of padded Megaformer machines rest side by side, waiting patiently to burn calories and activate sweat glands as upbeat music blasts from speakers. All Lagree Fitness classes are available in small packages, unlimited monthly packages, or limited monthly packages.
Dynasty Creative Arts Studio’s pendant-crafting class introduces participants to the art of jewelry making during 1.5-hour molding sessions. Small classes of eight students shape and press wax stamps into antique-style charms or pendants of fine silver clay, imprinted with letters, organic designs, and cheat codes to video games. A genuine ruby, sapphire, or emerald stone adds color and sparkle to each pendant as aspiring jewelers construct their customized pieces. After designs are complete, instructors fire the trinkets in a kiln, which transforms the clay into solid fine silver faster than holding it over a campfire or a sleeping dragon’s nostrils. Visitors can stay cozy while working on their projects with Dynasty’s in-studio fireplace, warm blankets, and steaming cups of espresso, latte, and herbal tea.
The certified instructors and professional staff at Club Pilates are passionate about bringing the full-body health and energy benefits of Pilates to everybody. At this bright and spacious studio, the focus is on Pilates Reformer classes, or classes teaching students the classic flexibility-boosting and strengthening moves of Pilates using Balanced Body Reformer equipment. Students can learn core-strengthening and alignment techniques in Pilates Reformer Level 1, or help boost their metabolisms in the Pilates Reformer Cardio Sculpt class, which features jumping and circuit training that works up a sweat more safely than pushing a wheelbarrow filled with hamburger meat through a wolf pack's territory.

The core of its kick-punching pedagogy focuses on strength of character to ensure that students learn how and when to properly channel their skills, whether they are guarding against bullies or weed-whacking a garden by hand.

Lord of the Rings. Star Wars. Legos. These are the areas of expertise of BrainStorm Studios' staff, who combine the experience gleaned from working on those films with brightly colored toy bricks to inspire young minds. Legos are used in conjunction with other technology to nurture kids' interest in STEAM: science, technology, engineering, art, and math. In different workshops, youngsters piece together bridges and towers, program robots, or build mind-boggling contraptions while principles of architecture, engineering, and physics secretly lodge in their brains. Future filmmakers can hone their craft in stop-motion-animation workshops or try their hand at storyboarding and acting in a short film. BrainStorm's creative birthday parties educationally elevate celebrations, inviting guests to create a claymation movie, a music video, or robots that solve mazes and do battle but, tragically, can't be programmed to feel love.
