Anytime Fitness, which boasts 1,689 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. As fitness seekers challenge themselves on cardio in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they’re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms.
As they enter the training circuit at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. Thirty seconds is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
Parkpoint Health Club has been a part of the Sonoma County landscape since 1983, when Bill and Lindy Buchanan opened their first health club in Santa Rosa. Over the last three decades, the club has earned its reputation with three locations, a diverse lineup of fitness equipment, a friendly and professional staff of trainers, and supplementary amenities such as massage therapy, facials, and nutritional counseling. Adults can get their sweat on in Pilates, yoga, cycling, and Zumba classes, and kids can enjoy after-school play in childcare or swimming in the pools in the summer.

A love for the outdoors fuels Rebecca Pennington, Bikram Yoga of Santa Rosa’s owner, who spent eight years as a wilderness adventure guide and backpacked 1,700 miles of the Pacific Coast Trail. When her knee gave out from overuse, she was devastated, turning to Bikram yoga in hopes of healing her injury. Eight years later, the pain in her knee is gone, and she has continued playing sports. Inspired by her experience, she’s taken over Bikram Yoga of Santa Rosa with a goal of extending the practice’s healing benefits to others. Her troupe of certified instructors leads students through 90-minute classes, flowing through 26 postures and two breathing exercises, each building on the previous pose to build strength and flexibility. The studio is heated to a balmy 105 degrees, which helps loosen up muscles, flush out bodily toxins, and identify any students concealing snowballs in their backpacks.

Although nearly four decades of experience has given Yoga Studio Ganesha owner Devorah Blum the ability to demonstrate amazing feats of flexibility, she doesn’t expect that of her students. That’s why she and her team of nearly a dozen instructors lead an array of classes, catering to both beginner and advanced skill levels. Novice students gain breathing and stretching fundamentals, while advanced practitioners can continue their discipline or learn new styles of yoga. Beginners and advanced yogis alike practice multiple types of yoga such as Iyengar, Ashtanga, or mom and baby yoga.
