Instead of relying on repetitive workouts and weight machines, Goality Fitness Club owner Eric Su guides clients through free-form exercises that change with every session. Workouts often consist of using exercise balls by Bosu, powering through suspension training by TRX, and running around impossibly shaped tracks by Mobius. Clients can select the training hours that best suit their daily lives; sessions begin as late as 5:30 p.m. on weekdays and also take place on Saturday morning. The club also offers yoga classes and free 30-minute consultations.
At Shelly’s Salon & Spa, professional stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists swaddle men, women, and young adults in fully custom salon and spa treatments. Before dousing hair wearers with Redken 5th Avenue products and up-to-date techniques born of continuing education, the skilled mane mavens consult with clients to decide on optimally chic looks based on face shape, hair type, and favorite style of powdered wig. Similarly, aestheticians examine skin prior to body wraps and custom facials and diagnose a regimen of cleansers and procedures specifically for each individual. Massage therapists take care to deliver tailored strokes as they seek out hidden tension pockets and tightly knotted tendons across corporeal landscapes.
