  • Arte Mozzafiato
    The artists at Arte Mozzafiato?or ?breathtaking art? in Italian?spend hours crafting each piece in their studio, leaving a bit of themselves in each ring, bowl, or sun-catcher they shape. Housed inside Gorse Mill Studios, which is a community of other local artists and studios, Arte Mozzafiato focuses on crafting elegant glass pieces that honor the tradition of lost forms such as glass molding, jewelry making, foiling, and stained glass. In an attempt to revive the art form, they design and construct stunning works ranging from glass rings and necklaces to fused bowls and stained-glass panels. The artists also hold regular workshops to share their love and knowledge of glasswork with the public.

  • Needham Bowlaway
    Bowlers might feel like they've stepped back in time even before they set foot in Needham Bowlaway. Needham has been open since 1917, the alley is tucked beneath the old post office, its entrance a featureless door with just a tiny sign above it to indicate where it leads. Inside bowlers gather around eight lanes, where they send bocce ball-sized balls towards narrow candlestick pins?the traditional New England version of bowling ?making this family fun game more accessible for children and harder for adults. Bumpers are available in each lane allow kids to play gutter ball?free, and birthday parties treat guests to trophies and a cake from Lizzy's Ice Cream.

  • Get In Shape For Women Abington
    To help women achieve their fitness goals, the certified personal trainers at Get In Shape For Women focus on four areas: weight training, cardio training, nutrition, and accountability. In small group sessions, trainers modify exercises to suit up to four ladies' fitness levels, beginning by calibrating strength-training sessions—such as free weights, lunges, and squats—to each client's abilities while still ensuring they are challenging themselves. Then comes high-intensity cardio interval-training sessions in which trainers encourage exercisers to achieve optimal results on the treadmill or elliptical. The trainers supplement the group workouts with nutritional planning centered around the concept of eating six small, balanced meals six days a week. They set aside the seventh day as a "free day" for a bit of indulgence, be it eating a favorite sweet or lusting openly after bacon. To hold their women accountable, trainers talk nutrition on the floor during scheduled appointments, and the ladies' progress toward reaching their goals is measured by trainers each week.

  • H.Y.P. Studio
    The noises and stressors of the day melt away as students find peace and quiet inside H.Y.P. Studio’s intimate workout areas. Small groups of no more than five participants gather for Pilates classes that use specialized equipment to build lithe muscles and abdominal strength. BarSculpt classes incorporate mats, weights, bands, and ballet barres to create a low-impact workout that targets fat in common problem areas along the legs, arms, and torso. Inside the yoga studios, a custom-designed heating system maintains an ideal balance of heat, humidity, and fresh oxygen, and the floors are constructed out of an antimicrobial material that prevents germs and charkas from getting trapped under the surface. Classes are held from as early as 5:45 a.m. to as late as 7.45 p.m., and students can use private shower and changing areas to get ready before and after sessions.

  • YMCA of Greater Boston
    The YMCA keeps residents healthy and engaged in more than 10,000 neighborhoods across the country, but it traces its American origins to the streets of 19th-century Boston. Here, Thomas Valentine Sullivan carried on the mission started in London by George Williams: providing affordable recreation and residence to young men from cities and country towns alike. Over the last century and change, the organization's mission changed to keep pace with the evolving times; today, the YMCA of Greater Boston welcomes anyone interested in furthering the causes of "youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility." This modern mission combines the Y's signature programming with new initiatives designed to keep citizens one step ahead of an ever-changing world. Members stay fit and active with everything from organized sports and fitness classes to lifeguard, CPR, and first aid lessons. But the Y's developmental programs go far beyond bodily strength; their enrichment and leadership courses equip youths with the confidence needed to take charge in their everyday lives, and ESL classes help newcomers to English embark on the next step of their linguistic lives.
