Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. Sun-starved hides can jump-start their glows with a Mystic spray tan. Employing MagneTan technology, Mystic’s mist adheres to skin suits evenly and streaklessly using the body's natural magnetic properties and innate force fields, leaving it bronzed and beautiful for five to seven days. Complement sunny hues with a 20-minute session atop the Hydro-Massage bed, which applies heat and water pressure to vital pressure points in order to rejuvenate tired muscles and relieve stress. Smooth bumpy terrain and trim your silhouette with a relaxing spin in the SlimCapsule, designed to burn up to 500 calories in a single 30-minute session using the dry heat generated by LED technology. A sweltering experience superior to sauna sessions or afternoons on a desert moon, the slimming treatment pampers clients with a vibratory massage, aromatherapy, ionized air, and a cooling fan.
Led by licensed aesthetician Debra Delaney, The Jungle Club’s permanent-makeup office imprints faces with a resilient look similar to that of temporary makeup. During the 60-minute process, Debra gently inserts colored pigment of the client’s choice into the skin, creating feature accentuations that will not rub off while showering, swimming, or fleeing Viking marauders at the mall. The digital precision of the permanent-makeup procedure leaves brows and eyeliner areas looking natural and ensures each patient’s safety. The calm water and lush greenery surrounding The Jungle Club evoke images of a remote woodland getaway or a tiger’s dining room.
When discussing his teaching philosophy with reporters from Central Florida Lifestyle, the owner of Salsa Heat quipped, "if you can walk, you can dance." He himself didn't know much about dancing when he took his first salsa class in the early 90's, but he caught on after just a few sessions, falling in love with the dance's energetic spins and rhythmic movements.
Today, a team of professional dance instructors teach salsa spins and footwork to students of all experience levels. Zumba and bachata classes provide tutoring in other Latin dance styles, and salsa classes for kids teach youngsters dance fundamentals that hone coordination and motor skills. Throughout the year, the staff hosts special events on their spacious dance floors, such as salsa socials, salsa Christmas parties, and salsa-infused celebrations of Robert Heinlein's birthday.

For busy mom Erin Phelan, owning a children’s play center blends personal and professional pursuits. Because she believes that storytelling and imaginary play develops essential skills, she has made both core foundations of her space. When the Play Plus for Kids owner comes to work, her youngster often tags along with her, zigzagging through the facilities during open-play time and exploring the indoor treehouse or bounce house alongside other inquisitive tots. Phelan's facility, which brims with opportunities for imaginative play, helps parents encourage their little ones to step away from the video-game controllers or tax audit forms in favor of hands-on recreation and classes such as family yoga and baby sign language.

Founded by Ronny and Nancy Dubinsky, Big Ron’s Yoga hosts intense hot-yoga sessions for all skill levels. The 100-minute classes guide students through a dynamic workout that, much like racing a slinky down the stairs, progressively strengthens muscle groups across the entire body. Heating ducts keep the practice space’s temperatures hovering around 100 degrees, loosening muscles for deep stretching and encouraging detoxifying perspiration as the air-purification system circulates a refreshing, pastoral breeze. Instructors proffer subtle postural modifications throughout the class sessions to ensure each student is suitably challenged.
