There are no TVs to gaze off into. No chairs to doze off into. No mirrors for flexing or preening into. No crying home to Mama. Comfort doesn't concern the trainers at Hammer Human Performance & Sport. The trainers thrive on pushing people past their limits, not coddling lackadaisical fair-weather exercisers. Passion, desire, and willpower drive their clientele, who endure an intense, scientifically based training formula. Fused with strength and conditioning, the goal of the formula is functional fitness, not just looking buff in a tank top. It's hard, but it's rewarding and inspiring as average Joes and Janes train like professional athletes and master the balance of speed, power, and strength.

Choosing from a buffet frees one to make spontaneous decisions, to enjoy more or less according to one's appetites, and to return for seconds. That's the reasoning behind the wide selection of classes at Hot Ryde, a fitness studio that includes a water-facing studio. The cycling instructors there lead indoor-cycling classes aboard RealRyder bikes, which tilt from side to side like actual bicycles. They also get all the body's muscles working together in low-impact TRX suspension training, which uses the body's weight and resistance bands.
Although The Goddess Spa resides inside Grand Central Hair Salon, its staff moves beyond coifs to address a whole different spectrum of cosmetic concerns. The aestheticians help rejuvenate skin using everything from ultrasound therapy to specialized anti-aging serums. These treatments aim to conceal imperfections typically caused by acne scars, dead skin cells, and chain-mail pillowcases. Peels gently resurface the topmost epidermal layers without abrasive acids, and the body wraps' seaweed-based herbal gel leaves skin feeling soft and nourished.
