The husband and wife team of Leon and Barbara Prete helm Anti-Aging Centers staff, who have spent more than 10 years shining bodies with noninvasive beams during laser treatments. Equipped with the brand-new Lipo-Light Pro and more Candela lasers than a hoarding supervillain, the aestheticians target hair, skin imperfections, and unwanted fat. Their el?s Plus sublative skin rejuvenation treatment, on the other hand, swaps lasers out for bipolar radio frequencies that delve deep into the skin to help treat wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne scars, and other issues. The technology-based treatments combine with classic spa services, including massage, and holistic services, such as ear candling. Prior to each aesthetic or medical treatment, staff conducts consultations, during which clients can warm their hands and shivering finger puppets around cups of complimentary tea as they forge a customized treatment plan.
The air is charged with passion and ambition at S.U. FitNess Studio, and that’s just how the late Adrian “Santo” Nunez, the studio’s founder, intended things to be. Santo, who sadly lost his fight against muscular dystrophy in 2008, opened S.U. Studio as a place for teenagers to showcase and hone their special talents, whether dancing, singing, writing, or DJing. Today, though S.U. has shifted its focus to fitness, the instructors make sure to honor Santo’s expressive, encouraging spirit by helping locals achieve their wellness goals while having fun. Classes in Piloxing and step fusion add variety to the schedule, and lead instructor Delilah Rios heads invigorating Zumba sessions for students aged 4 and up.

Chops Steak & Fish Grill—formerly Chuck's Steakhouse—dishes out fresh catches and premium cuts and chops in a gold-accented dining room. Plates of crisp vegetables from the salad bar temper robust strip steaks, top sirloin, filet mignon, and Delmonico steaks.

The instructors at H2Owls orchestrate their fun and safe swim lessons in accordance with SwimAmerica, a 10-step curriculum that helps youngsters refine their swimming skills. After beginning with basic swimming fundamentals including leg kicks and arm strokes, instructors move on to more advanced techniques based on each student’s progress.
