After your workout, pamper yourself in the newly renovated Escape Spa with a microderm, algae, hot mud, clay, or paraffin facial or indulge a massage or other body treatment. Once you’ve had your spa service, you can even get a blow-out. Paulo’s Atelier from Bedford Hills has a satellite operation at The Gym, so you can look as good as you feel.
Relax, rejuvenate, and replenish: that’s the mantra of massage therapist Kathleen Doherty. Her hands work magic—whether they’re used to soothe skin or to aggressively knead muscles. You can find the Tarrytown native kneading away at The Gym and at Eurolaser; she also makes house calls (914-552-2856, email@example.com).
If the proof is in the pudding, to judge a personal fitness trainer, we have to ask: Just how buff is he? In Rob Forcelli’s case, buff enough to pose in the buff in Playgirl magazine back in the ’90s. And he’s maintained his physique in the ensuing years, leading classes that inspire such a devoted following that people line up a half-hour in advance to squeeze themselves in. That, plus private personal-training sessions, Contenders Basketball (a year-round league for men over age 35), Contenders Club workouts, and semi-private fitness training, keep Forcelli and his clients in tip-top shape.
