As an accident-recovery and cervical-back-pain specialist, it?s fair to say Andrea Reilly has witnessed suffering. But as a licensed massage therapist, it?s also fair to say she understands relief. Andrea has spent nine years as a licensed massage therapist, and most of her time is spent in the health-care field, working alongside doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists. Her attentive bodywork techniques and passion for healing come to a head at Massage by Andrea, where she has carved out a relaxing space for clients to unwind and recover. She offers Swedish, hot-stone, and deep-tissue massage, as well as reflexology and area-specific treatments.
At Peak Fitness, Cybex and Life Fitness strength-training machines mingle with Hammer Strength machines and free weights. An indoor rock-climbing wall protects climbers from the elements, and a cycling room corrals LeMond stationary bikes for classes. On the cardio floor, treadmills, elliptical machines, stair climbers, and bikes gather like gazelles around a “No Alligator” swimming zone. Peak also supports recreational sports, with an indoor basketball half court, a volleyball court, and tanning beds for minor-league tanning. Personal trainers and fitness coaches guide clients throughout their fitness journeys with tailored one-on-one instruction, as well as fitness classes and Zumba classes that mix music and exercise to simultaneously strengthen lower-body muscles. In the spa, staffers relax sore and fatigued bodies with massage services, waxing, and facials. Additionally, the studio's babysitting service keeps children aged 3–11 preoccupied while parents hone the mental muscles needed for their offspring's future groundings.

When he moved from Ireland to Manhattan, Marcus Feighery started up his own courier company. Business went swimmingly for years, but he always felt something was missing.
