Children explore their curiosity and develop social skills, and moms exercise at WeePlay & Learn's 12,000-square-foot play and workout center. Developed by Mary Melzack, president and a mother of four, WeePlay's classes engage emerging senses in babies with music, motor exercises, and toys, whereas toddlers build confidence and fine motor skills as they clamber over equipment. Older tykes encounter ABCs and 123s for the first time so they can finally translate instructions and file their own taxes. Art decks the walls of the colorful, carpeted playrooms, where natural light floods through floor-to-ceiling windows to illuminate children at play.Every morning at 8:20, moms take advantage of fast-paced exercise classes that rotate between Zumba, Pilates, and yoga-inspired PIYO. WeePlay's certified staffers care for infant- to preschool-age kids so that parents can exercise without worrying.
At Brain Fitness Hawaii, certified neurofeedback therapist Dr. Hana Yin uses holistic and noninvasive methods to help clients build up their brain power. To begin, she draws up each client's neural map, which is used to customize each training session for a range of therapeutic goals, from losing weight to growing a spare brain. An EEG machine provides a real-time readout of brainwave anomalies, allowing Dr. Yin to pinpoint exactly which areas need to be treated. Not only can brain training stimulate creativity and performance, but it has also helped past clients avoid or cure maladies such as food addiction, insomnia, and anxiety.
