  • North Shore Fit Pit
    Chad Surdich, a two-time Golden Glove semifinalist, surveys his red-walled boxing gym from behind the chainlink fence that circles the ring. Around him, boxing pupils wham their fists into focus mitts during small-group classes, or work up heart rates by hopping onto cardio machines. Chad and his expert instructors make use of North Shore Fit Pit’s bountiful array of weight machines and heavy ropes to lead boxing classes, cardio boxing classes, and hot boxing classes that amp up workouts with detoxifying heat and squirts of tabasco snuck into water bottles.

Students receive one-on-one tutelage in the art of rocking out during a weekly 45-minute private lesson and deploy ensemble rhythms during a 90-minute group rehearsal. Real musicians provide performance-based instruction in a low-stress atmosphere, conducive to the cultivation of confidence, skill, and pigeon-free signature stage moves.

  • Art by the Glazz - Sip with a Twist!
    Artist Lisa Jones, the founder of Art by the Glazz, has a painting hanging in the White House and one in the Pentagon. Both locales are impressive places for the artwork of any artist to reside, particularly one who “found out [she] liked to paint by mistake.” Lisa began her painting life in her 30s shortly after the death of her mother. A friend convinced her to go to a painting class in the hopes of alleviating Lisa’s depression, and within three weeks of this class, Lisa had three clients who were commissioning work from her. A few years later, Lisa created Art by the Glazz, originally intending to use the operation as a fundraising tool for nonprofits. Today, a portion of Lisa’s painting classes still benefits art education in public schools, and she stations these informative, fun sessions throughout the Washington D.C. metro area and takes them on tour through New Jersey and Chicago. Throughout the years, Lisa estimates that she’s swapped paint and sipped wine with more than 1,000 people. One memorable student, a woman who had suffered a stroke, hadn’t painted for five years until her husband brought her to Art by the Glazz, where she once again took to the canvas with paint and brush. Most of Lisa’s students arrive to class with no formal artistic training, and their level of fun, Lisa says, “depends on how much [they] let [themselves] go.” It’s easy for her to tell when the class has gone for it. Colorful palette flourishes mingle with laughs, toasts, and even songs, as budding artists recreate a favorite landscape, still life, or parking ticket.

  • Sanctuary Yoga
    A staff of more than 30 qualified yoga instructors sporting diverse backgrounds, experience, and expertise have made Sanctuary Yoga Highwood an inclusive studio for practitioners of all abilities and interests. Credit for the place's welcoming vibes also belong to owner Amanda Small, whose Mississippi-borne Southern hospitality inspires her to create a warm space, in both the emotional and physical sense. Though not every class is heated, some of the Vinyasa flows are performed in temperatures as high as 98 degrees to promote deeper stretching and to detoxify the body. For a less strenuous session, students can try one of Sanctuary's specialty classes, such as Stretchy and Gentle and Yoga Basics. An adjoined retail lounge keeps guests outfitted with exercise apparel and accessories from brands such as Yogitoes, as well as with organic candles and aromatherapy products that freshen up homes filled with sweaty yoga apparel and accessories.
