Inside George Brown Fitness, ISSA-certified personal trainer Scott Sherman leads his students toward their fitness goals with little more than some sets of straps and a will to succeed. An independent trainer, Scott often meets clients in-studio or outdoors in the fresh air, under the nonjudgmental sun, where he helps people of all sorts get in shape, from teens and new moms to conditioned athletes looking to progress in their sport. Sessions vary, but Scott often calls upon exercises such as heavy-rope training, sit-ups and body-weight moves, and TRX suspension training to mold his clients’ physiques.
Fresno Kickboxing Academy schools young fighters in the subjects of muscles, speed, and coordination during a four-day, noncontact MMA sports-training camp. Kids ages 8–17 train in the 12,000-square-foot private sports gym under the watchful eye of a staff of expert instructors, which may include former wrestlers, MMA fighters, or extras from The Karate Kid. During each three-hour session, coaches lead students through a warm-up and nutrition discussion, as well as workouts based on muay thai, American-style boxing, jujitsu, and wrestling. The fully equipped facility boasts an Olympic-size mat, complete weight room, and professional punching-bag rack, good for finessing fist throws or practicing do-si-dos. Check the schedule for dates.
Our Playroom's indoor play and enrichment center entertains sock-clad youngsters below the age of 6 with engaging rides, toys, and classes. Kids can race down the rocket-ship slide, scale the rock-climbing fort, or throw their hands up during drops on the mini roller coaster. Elsewhere they can bounce on trampolines, stock up on plastic food at the grocery stand, and perform the unabridged text of King Lear at the puppet theater.
As the older children play, those younger than 1 can explore the infant corner's soft play mats, while adults use the facility's free WiFi or join their kids for peanut- and nut-free bites at the snack bar. Along with open play, Our Playroom hosts engaging classes ranging from story times and art projects to basic cheerleading instruction and kid-friendly Zumba led by a certified Zumba teacher.

A graphic designer by training, Julie Weiss first picked up a camera when she couldn't find stock photography that was up to her exacting standards. She was familiar with technique, so she started snapping shots of people, places, pets, and food. She discovered a true passion for the art form and for making women feel beautiful, and founded Weiss Photography to make a career of it. She still shoots a wide range of subjects for personal and commercial use, but particularly specializes in boudoir photography, capturing moments of beauty that the naked eye might normally miss.
