In June 2010, all four Gencarelli family members—parents Lou Sr. and Susan, daughter Stephanie, and brother and head personal trainer Lou Jr.—came together to open Hardbodyz Fitness. Today, visitors to the gym will always find at least one Gencarelli chatting with guests, giving out complimentary eye contact, and making sure everything's running smoothly.

The Gencarellis and their red-shirted staff help members navigate a 7,500-square-foot facility to take advantage of a score of strength-building and cardio classes, free-weights, a sunlit spin studio, and a cardio area equipped with individual TVs and iPod hookups at each of about 40 machines.

The Coloring Room unearths inner artistes with a host of pottery painting events for both adults and kids. The cheerful studio is a great place to get friends together for a small ceramics gathering, ceramics rave, or first ceramics date rave. At BYOB pottery-painting gatherings, guests provide their own libations, and The Coloring Room supplies the paint, tools, and clay canvases, providing Groupon holders with their choice of any unfinished ceramic piece valued at up to $15. If you don't know how to paint, or only know how to paint the Venus of Urbino on a divan made of butter, the friendly staff can help you draw a stegosaurus or emblazon a mug with a well thought-out poem that faithfully represents your feelings about Monday. A color chart assists in the palette-constructing process, and unlimited use of paint, supplies, and instruction grants free rein for burgeoning Rembrandts to compose their earthenware masterpieces.

A US Marine, two-time Iraq veteran, and soon-to-be third-degree black belt, Johnny Guerrero is like a Swiss army knife of self-defense techniques. He earned black belts in Brazilian jujitsu and ninjutsu—the traditional fighting form of Japanese assassins—and has studied styles ranging from judo to Greco Roman wrestling. He draws on his encyclopedic knowledge of self-defense along with his first-hand experience of combat to aid students on their journey to becoming warriors—the very reason he started Guerrero Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

The school’s curriculum is designed to teach students to fight with speed, skill, and accuracy. Instructors tailor Brazilian jujitsu and mixed-martial-arts lessons based on level expertise, allowing beginners to learn from experts and experts to challenge themselves to intense competition. Children's classes cater to kids with special needs and focus on antibullying instruction to keep kids safe at school. Each teacher receives training in both child and adult psychology, which aids them in chopping through even the thickest of mental blocks.
