A chandelier decked out with glass teardrops hangs over slate floors and eclectic decorations inside Sole'renity's historic building, which dates back more than a century. Zebra-striped Victorian-style chairs stand in the waiting area, where the splash of cascading water sounds out from small stone fountains. At nail stations farther inside, techs polish nails and provide paraffin-wax soaks for the toes of clients seated in damask chairs. Massages soothe muscles with hot stones and essential oils, and facials refresh visages by clearing acne, renewing aging skin, and removing expressions stuck on the face after last night's nightmares.
The instructors at Denton Boxing Club teach their students to follow in the footwork and land punches in the fist prints of the great boxers who have come before them. That doesn't mean they're a bunch of roughnecks, though. Rather, they embrace the sport’s classic training style, focusing on fitness during group lessons and reserving actual sparring instruction for private sessions. In addition to arming students with self-defense-style combos, these group classes increase strength through sessions with the heavy bag, and boost stamina with targeted of cardio and endurance work. Designed by actual boxers, classes also torch calories and slim down waistlines, and boost overall fitness with workouts that engage muscle groups throughout the body.
Authentic Yoga Life draws inspiration from Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga, a school of hot yoga that focuses on the body as much as the mind. Over many years of studying yoga, Authentic Yoga Life owner Valerie Warren has used the practice to become a more confident person. Her studio aims to create a supportive atmosphere, where people are encouraged to find inner peace as well. Classes are taught in a heated room (typically between 92 and 95 degrees), which encourages safe muscle stretching and body purification.

During the exam at Jefferson Dental, which welcomes walk-ins, one of the dentists from the smile-savvy staff ventures into facial caves in search of tooth decay and gum disease. A skilled technician then snaps x-ray pictures, uncovering hidden problems to use as blackmail. Opting to add cleaning ensures that a whirlpool of floss and paste separates debris, plaque, and tartar from enamel and that fangs look more polished than a socialite dipped in wax.
