6815 Hillcrest Ave., Park Cities
Drawing from a combination of techniques from Pilates, strength training, cardio, and ballet, Meghann O’Leary, the founder of The PilatesBarre, has put together a roster of classes diverse enough to avoid repetition fatigue. Using a revamped Pilates machine known as the BarreFormer, the fifty-minute sessions target both big and small muscle groups. Classes are small, and the instructors are very hands-on and ready to get in there and make adjustments.
Somatique Medical + Dental Spa
5600 W. Lovers Ln., Park Cities
As the name suggests, this place takes a pretty hardcore, comprehensive approach to beauty (the office is staffed with plastic surgeons and cosmetic dentists). In fact, clients credit the owners, Donald and Beverly Breshers, with introducing the med-spa concept to Dallas some 20 years ago and continue to rely on them for consistently introducing treatments. While you can come here for all manner of cosmetic procedures, less-invasive options, like full-body endermologie and peels, are also on offer.
