Since 1973, Susan Marlowe Fitness has been passionate about promoting wellness and sustainability for women through cutting-edge fitness programs and nutrition guidance. Designed for women by women, the fitness club's classes include yoga, Zumba, boot camp, and the Iso-Towel, which uses isometrics to engage muscle groups and burn fat in sacrificial sweat rituals. In addition to trimming and toning bodies in fitness classes, Susan Marlowe Fitness's experienced instructors are available for nutrition guidance, which ranges from helping clients develop custom meal plans to doling out juice cleanses and healthful supplements. The eco-chic fitness center is outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment, a full locker room, childcare services, and a Swedish sauna that is sworn to neutrality during towel-snapping battles.
Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable members to work on their physical well-being with a cornucopia of fitness equipment. With 20-hour access seven days a week, members don't have to let The Man tell them when to help themselves to Snap's strength and cardio equipment, which features built-in TVs and other media diversions. For those who exercise during conventional hours, Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere welcomes patrons of all ability levels, unlike schoolyard dodge-ball squads. Members also enjoy nationwide access to all Snap Fitness locations, ideal for working out while traveling.
For a dose of custom advice, patrons can seek out a personal-training session with a certified coach, who helps them assess and address their fitness goals. Clients reap the benefit of individual attention as a personal trainer helps them tackle weight loss, prepare for an arm-wrestling competition, or unveil the mysteries of arcane cable-weight machines.
A pioneer of brain education and president of the Korean Institute of Brain Sciences, Ilchi Lee folded his studies into the design of his own Dahn Yoga, equal parts traditional asana and neuroscience research. A typical session begins with a simple tapping of the lower abdomen to gather chi energy that would otherwise get absorbed by Bagel Bites swallowed whole. Sessions launch into an exercise routine that combines aspects of yoga and tai chi to improve flexibility, strength, and balance. Next, yogis cool down and focus energy during an active form of meditation called Brain Wave Vibration, the studio's specialty, that harnesses flowing movements in an attempt to align minds and bodies. After the physical segment, workouts shift into a meditative portion that infuses cardiovascular systems with a stream of purifying oxygen through deep breathing.

Wielding knowledge of wine as robust as an aged barolo, certified wine educator Ned Towle nurtures budding oenophiles with expert instruction in how to serve, taste, and talk about wine. What began as a blood transfusion with Bacchus gone wrong has become a worldwide love affair with the grape, inspiring Ned to host two-hour classes that cover the sensory and social aspects of wine. The seductive flavors of pinots and merlots spread across palates while Ned demonstrates how to select wines in shops and restaurants, how to match wine with food, and how to choose styles for a variety of occasions. Guests learn about grape varieties grown and harvested in key regions throughout the world—from the rolling hills of Argentina to the lush vineyards of Southern France—and cultivate an appreciation for major red and white styles. The class also reveals how to read bottle labels and reinterpret them as Gregorian chants.
