Inside Wellness Laser Center & Med Spa's cozy office, trained technicians wield microcurrents and lasers to help physiques to achieve their dreams. From toning-facial sessions to pound-punching LipoLaser procedures, the center's non-invasive beautifiers sculpt new looks with limited downtime. Microcurrent facials bolster collagen, elastin, and ATP production to transform skin from wrinkly and sagging to svelte. Whole-body-vibration platforms and cold lasers join forces in their battle against flab during LipoLaser treatments. During sessions akin to poisoning fat with a diet of greens, the treatment purges the system of demolished fat cells with no discomfort and no downtime.
Joe Butler doesn't do things halfway. When he wanted to learn to be a physical trainer, he went to LA, trained with some of the top trainers in the world, and began training pro athletes and movie stars. Then he opened his own personal training gym, where he assembled a team of trainers with a combined 200 years of training experience. These days, he and his trainers lead guests of all fitness levels through training programs that include boot-camp, speed-and-agility, and RX Fit classes. Every student who walks into Prescription Fitness is treated to a health assessment and goal-setting consultation, allowing clients to slim down, bulk up, or prep for javelin season.

Now in its 23rd year, the I-X Indoor Amusement Park returns to the International Exposition Center with more than 20 acres of rides, games, and attractions. The indoor wonderland opens its doors from late March to early April on select dates, giving Cleveland families a springtime window to zip around on more than 30 thrill rides or read poetry to farm animals at a petting zoo. The newly added Cirque Shanghai dazzles eyes with a mammoth spectacle of daring acrobatics and motorcycle daredevilry, while daily Big Cat shows showcase the abilities of rescued tigers from a Sarasota, Florida, animal sanctuary. A collection of carnival fare, such as corn dogs, cotton candy, fresh-squeezed lemonade, and deep-fried baseball caps, rounds out the summer-like atmosphere.
Everyday Errands Etc. is the family-owned and operated brainchild of Kerri Fittro and Janessa Butler, who rally both traditional and green products for residential- and commercial-cleaning projects. Though home sprucing is the company’s forte, fully licensed and insured technicians can be deployed for professional organization projects such as systematizing a closet or arranging a pantry. The Errands gurus also make themselves available for specialty services including personal shopping or beat boxing personal theme songs whenever a client enters a room. To give back to their community in more ways than mass-basement organization, Kerri and Janessa arrange a confidential donation of services each month to families in need.
