Most of the world's keychains don't hold keys to a Lamborghini, Ferrari, or Aston Martin. For this reason, Xtreme Adventures was born. Throughout the year, the staff organizes exotic vehicle driving experiences around a makeshift autocross track on the grounds of Sleep Train Amphitheatre. The event allows drivers to hop behind the wheel of a Lamborghini or Ferrari, step on the accelerator, and be transported into the shiny pages of automobile magazines. And the company's driving experiences aren't the only services that ooze adrenaline. They also offer exotic vehicle rentals and vehicular obstacle courses designed to be completed in a Hummer.
Founder Linda Taix has one mission: to help clients achieve the ultimate positive change in body, health, and spirit––without half- hearted crunches. Employing a team of certified personal trainers and former military personnel, Linda's civilian-style fitness boot camp was featured on Good Morning America. Linda modeled her six-week boot-camp sessions after a real military boot camp, with an enlistment phase to gauge fitness levels and one- hour classes that blend military exercise drills, resistance training, and plyometrics with cardio activities such as obstacle courses and double-dutch jump-rope contests against local youths.
Cutting out traditional boot-camp yelling and huffing, the team fosters a supportive and motivating environment for students of all skill levels. Furthermore, Extreme employs nutritionist and fourth-degree black belt Jake Nelson to guide clients with diet advice and personal consultations on how best to break a board with a honey-glazed ham.
A bright mural covering the walls welcomes visitors to Chula Vista Yoga Center, where instructors foster strengthened bodies and usher minds to tranquility through various yoga techniques. The studio focuses on Vinyasa yoga, in which students move from one pose to another within one inhale or exhale to synchronize breath with movement. Each class is structured to enable novice yogis to practice their newfound stretches on their own while more experienced yogis can enter classes for all levels. Chula Vista Yoga Center offers classes at various times throughout the week, so check the studio's class schedule to chart the ideal course.
The patter of gloves against heavy bags and the paced breathing of circling sparring partners fills The Boxing Club with energy. That's amplified by trainers, who lead classes in everything from cycling to kickboxing. There's muay thai, for example, an MMA fighting style that torches calories with flurries of flying elbows, knees, and fists, or jiu jitsu, which focuses more on grappling.
Martial arts are, in a way, just one more way of working towards physical fitness for many at the studio. Fitness goals are helped along by a full weight room, cardio area, and pilates studio. There's also a full locker room for cleaning up afterwards.
