  • Ultimate Bootcamp
    Cofounders Jill Tomich and Peter Lavelle had both been active in the fitness world before they opened Ultimate Bootcamp in 2004. Jill threw her energies into boxing, ballet, yoga, and blogging for a wedding diet-and-fitness website, and Peter, a native Irishman, was a triathlete. In all his pursuits, Peter adhered to the motto "We're not here for a long time?we're here for a good time." This credo infuses all of the boot-camp programs. Campers from all across the fitness spectrum find accommodation as the workouts meet them close to home. Trainers never push too far, but always challenge. An energetic mix of outdoor-resistance and interval training layers patrons in svelte muscle, builds strength, and burns calories to promote weight loss more effectively than a rice cake's PR agent. Far from the stereotypical idea of a boot camp, encouragement and support roll in from instructors who foster cooperation and camaraderie between fellow boot campers.

  • Broga Yoga
    Cofounders Robert Sidoti and Adam O'Neill set out to create a studio tailored to men seeking a workout to improve their stamina and muscle tone while relieving stress, effectively delivering a "much more palatable introduction to yoga at a much more familiar level," as Adam told the Boston Globe. With gentle and vigorously paced classes available, instructors lead students through 60 or 75 heart-pumping minutes of traditional yoga poses, incorporating cardio work and muscle-toning exercises throughout the class to ensure a workout for the entire body, exactly like a game of water polo in wet cement. In addition to helping students to stretch and strengthen their limbs, instructors teach them how to focus their thoughts inward, emphasizing balance between the mind and body, an effort Robert and Adam also take to Broga retreats for fathers and sons or corporate teams.

  • West Somerville Dental Associates
    The talented toothsmiths at West Somerville Dental Associates tenderly restore teeth to their natural luminescence. Opt for the in-office teeth whitening and your mandible mollusks will emerge brighter than the most intelligent walrus. Teeth are cleaned and examined prior to the in-office treatment, and custom-made take-home whitening trays provide the goods needed to maintain a pearly sheen. Alternately, the comprehensive cleaning package whisks teeth through a tingly tour of digital x-ray terrain, cleaning and polishing oral meadows with rivers of fluoride rinse. Teeth will receive an exam to assess oral health, followed by an oral exam to assess the teeth's knowledge of the underlying causes of the Bolshevik Revolution. They'll also receive a goody bag of tooth-tending treats.

  • Smiles By Rosie
    From the designated ?zen corner? to the lavender-scented towels offered after appointments, Smiles by Rosie Family Dentistry feels more like a spa than a traditional dentist?s office. It?s all part of Dr. Katie-Rose Wagner?s mission to make dental care as relaxing as possible for adults and children. As patients relax in lilac-hued rooms, listening to their choice of music or programming form netflix, Dr. Wagner and her staff tend to smiles with procedures that range from preventative care to cosmetic touch-ups. Winner of both the Somerville News Weekly and the Somerville scout "Best Dentist of 2013" award, Dr. Wagner particularly specializes in treating those who have put off their regular visits.

  • Open Space Community Acupuncture
    The team of licensed acupuncturists at Open Space Community Acupuncture don't knock when they're about to enter the room. That's because there's only one treatment room here, as the center specializes in communal acupuncture. In a comforting group setting, the professionals insert sterile needles into the body in an effort to boost qi, or the body's life energy. Aside from community acupuncture being better suited for a family reunion, its main difference from private acupuncture is its accessibility. Due to Open Space's arrangement, the staff members can see more patients and charge less per visit. Case in point, their treatments are priced on a sliding scale between $20?$40.

  • Dutch Bicycle Co.
    Years before Dan and Maria founded DBC City Bike design, the duo resolved to reduce their dependence on gasoline. This resolution led the couple to Europe, where they hopped aboard Dutch bicycles that redefined how they thought about comfort on two-wheeled mounts. When Dan and Maria returned stateside, they began importing and selling these revolutionary rides through their new store, The Dutch Bicycle Company (The DBC). However, the hills, long-distance commutes, and stairs that define many American cities revealed many inconveniences in the unmodified Dutch model, so DBC added City Bike design to its name and they began building their custom Swifts, calibrated to handle the rigors of urban, bike-riding lifestyles. Today, the founding couple and their design staff build these bikes to order, modify existing rides, and provide tune-ups that, like prison-gang relay races, keep chains moving smoothly and swiftly.
