High-energy music thumps through in the studio, giving students the extra oomph needed to motor through cardio moves or shake hips in a variety of fitness classes. Latin-inspired Zumba and ME (Movement & Energy) classes keep the mood playful, while stretch classes offer a tranquil respite in which muscles can elongate or practice imitating rubber bands. Expert instructors fuse yoga, ballet, and Pilates in barre classes, which help tone and sculpt muscles in 45- to 60-minute sessions.
The experienced technicians at Renewal Skincare are dedicated to fighting the effects of age on skin, performing custom, noninvasive facials whose results mimic that of a face-lift.

This treatment encourages collagen production, diminishes breakouts and blemishes, boosts skin firmness, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and scars.
