Channeling more than 60 years of experience in the health-and-fitness industry, Abington and Quincy Athletic Club's management staff has built two family-friendly facilities that aim to bestow each guest with personal treatment. Each building houses at least 20,000 square feet of workout space, including hardwood studios for group classes such as Zumba, Pilates, and Les Mills BodyPump. Cardio and strength gear from Nautilus, Magnum, FreeMotion, and Star Trac accommodates physiques of all fitness levels, from exercise amateurs to those who would rather wall-sit during movie dates. A squad of certified personal trainers and nutrition counselors steers patrons onto a custom pathway to wellness, and childcare services and senior programs broadcast welcoming vibes to club guests of all ages.
Bee Green Cleaning?s experienced cleaners scrub homes to a sparkling finish with eco-friendly, all-natural cleaning products, advanced technology, and green cleaning methods. Friendly cleaners arrive with a trove of phosphate-free, biodegradable cleaning concoctions such as Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day soaps, which are perfumed with sweet-smelling essential oils and are not tested on animals. Customers may request fragrance-free products to accommodate allergies or reduce the likelihood that perfume-hunting hounds will descend on homes. Steam mops freshen and disinfect rugs without the use of harmful chemicals, and UV-C sanitizing wands root out germs, mold, and dust mites from beds, furniture, and computer keyboards. Dust flees before disinfected cleaning cloths as vacuums zoom across carpets to capture allergens, grimy particles, and discarded dreams in their HEPA filters.
The Hershey Theatre, conceived in 1933 by noted philanthropist and chocolatier Milton S. Hershey, stands as an opulent tribute to the performing arts. Taking architectural cues from Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the foyer’s towering arches gleam with golden paint and crystal chandeliers. The blue-and-gold mosaic that leads to the main seating area is the masterwork of two German artists who spent two years on its construction. Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats.
####Bethel Woods Center for the Arts
Music has permeated the 800 manicured acres where the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has stood since 1969, when farmer Max Yasgur agreed to let love, peace, and harmony grow wild at the very first Woodstock festival. These days, the renowned outdoor venue and cultural center continues to attract the biggest acts in music to its pavilion stage. The open-air design ensures ample ventilation on the natural sloping lawn, and a roof protects up to 15,000 fans from inclement weather and the prying eyes of Cessna pilots.

Recognized by the Green Yoga Association for its eco-friendly space, Sol Yoga helps students trim down and limber up while treading lightly on the environment. Inside the softly lit practice room, yogis stretch in the sun-like warmth that shines down from overhead radiant heat panels, loosening up tight muscles, and escorting toxins from the body through pores. HEPA filters fill the studio with fresh air while sustaining a relentless, merciless rampage against odors, airborne contaminants, and dust bunnies disguised as dust people. After cleansing their bodies and minds during vigorous Vinyasa power flows, students relax in the spa-like locker room complete with hardwood lockers, slate-tiled floors, and private showers.
Breathe Hot Yoga's studios maintain a tropical climate regardless of the season. Though not as hot as traditional Bikram yoga, the studios maintain a balmy temperature for most classes, allowing muscles to remain loose and limber as students flow through sessions. Antibacterial, medical-grade vinyl flooring gives yogis the clean, steady surface they need to train excitable downward-facing dogs. After sessions, trainees can refresh and renew in Breathe Hot Yoga's onsite shower facilities.
