Since she was a child, Pla Schneider dreamed of writing and illustrating her own children's book. She earned a degree in visual communications and exhibited some of her work in boutiques and galleries, but she couldn't find that spark of inspiration. She was able to find a muse in her daughter, who inspired Pla's first book, Sassy Cassie A True Little Princess. At Sugar-n-Spice Studios, Schneider helps art students circumvent creative blocks by guiding them step-by-step in a fun, playful environment. Patrons dab acrylic paints onto stretched canvases, rendering images of flower-filled parks, technicolor giraffes, or mermaids swimming alongside seahorses and other imaginary animals.

The trio of trainers behind Nzforce fitness have seen many a would-be athlete leave the gym behind because it didn’t offer them any motivation or fun. They aim to remedy that problem with high-energy group Zumba classes, where students sweat, dance, and make friends. The class-goers help hold each other accountable for attendance, but the organizers make it easy to find time in a busy schedule for exercise by holding classes six days a week.
The key to Fit Body Life Training Center isn't a piece of workout equipment or a class—it's an algorithm. Head trainer Khoi Nguyen created the calculation for his signature My Fit Body Life program, which tabulates the number of calories, proteins, carbohydrates, and fats each exerciser needs to consume in order to meet their fitness goals, whether it's losing 10 pounds or gaining 100 pounds of triceps muscle. Complementing the algorithm are other preworkout services such as ultrasound-aided body composition tests that can measure the thickness of fatty tissue. It's not all science and numbers, though. Once exercisers are ready to work out, Khoi and his staff offer everything from kickboxing and yin yoga classes to personal training and intense 30-minute Les Mills Grit classes.
