With its wide array of salon and day spa services, Aperio Salon beautifies clients from head to toenail. In the salon, stylists create polished new styles, color hair, and add extensions. Aestheticians treat skin with hot stones, aromatherapy, a skin brightening system, or a multivitamin treatment that relieves skin from the effects of falling asleep in too many bowls of potato chips. Massage therapists also use hot stones in their treatments, which can include gliding and relaxing Swedish strokes or deep-tissue techniques that target tenser areas.
The fun, active group classes at Drew LeBlanc's Elite Fitness boost health and vigor under the guidance of friendly, professional trainers. Cardio workouts, such as calorie-crushing dance-based Zumba, maximize heart and lung efficiency, while the brawn-boosting Bodypump class turns everyday muscles into washboards, six-packs, and other useful household items. Diligent exercisers can fight the battle of the bulge with a weight-loss boot camp or learn to protect their neighborhoods from gangs of delinquent punching bags with kickboxing lessons. The modern fitness center also houses private shower facilities for postworkout de-salting.
S'port Port boasts premier indoor soccer facilities, including a full-size field for learning, practicing, and playing games of soccer's accelerated indoor cousin. The six-week women's indoor soccer clinic for beginners arms burgeoning footballers with the tools to shoot, pass, trap, cross, and dribble in a friendly and competitive team environment of 12–14 contenders. Along with enabling players to attain skills in a new sport, playing indoor soccer provides potential slide-tackling machines with great workouts sans the monotony of routine gym visits, tired treadmill excursions, and old-hat tree-uprooting exercises.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were accidentally installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness levels to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Fairfield Family Clinic’s certified prettifiers remove unsightly body fuzz from surfaces with a cutting-edge laser, which emits highly concentrated beams of light to zap individual follicles into hairless existence.

Hair removed via lasers, like bell-bottoms or disco-polka fusion music, most likely won’t make a comeback anytime soon. Like flawlessly reciting the Gettysburg Address in Pig Latin, treatment typically requires an average of 6–10 sessions to achieve desired results. Customers can also apply the value of their Groupon toward other body parts not included in this deal, such as the legs, arms, and back.
