Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable members to work on their physical well-being with a cornucopia of fitness equipment. With 24-hour access, 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.
When The Specialist Cleaning Service's technicians appear to be surveying dirty carpeting, they're actually planning a series of explosions. Inside their extraction units, boilers generate steam pressure. With the touch of a button, blasts of the super-concentrated vapors surge into fibers, lifting embedded debris without chemicals or harsh solvents.
Such powerful yet natural service typifies the approach of The Specialist Cleaning Service's team, which spans three generations and more than 30 years of experience. Dispatched to homes and commercial offices throughout Connecticut and select counties of New York, the crews supply services that include carpet and upholstery cleaning, window cleaning, and hardwood-floor rejuvenation so that homeowners can finally touch up their makeup while gazing at their shiny floors.
Inflated structures, slides, and games fill the climate-controlled environs of the numerous BounceU locations that speckle the nation.

The crew also invites parents to join in on the fun, letting them bounce alongside their kids or make sweeping edicts from atop a bouncy-castle throne. In addition to open sessions, the indoor-play haven sets the stage for the Preschool Playdate program, where instructors lead games and activities. Special events include family-bounce night, which lets parents join in the bouncing or relax in the party room and do grownup things, such as eat marshmallows with a knife and fork.
Atop the blue padded floors of Master Hwang's Martial Arts, adults and kids as young as four years old learn to focus their energies to execute challenging maneuvers.

The karate haven also hosts summer camps and birthday parties that strengthen juvenile bonds.
Despite its location inside the Paradise Green Shopping Center, The "It" Factor Hair Studio cultivates an atmosphere that could be found in a multi-cultural and professional family salon.
