Since its 1965 founding in Venice Beach, California, Gold's Gym has dotted the globe with more than 600 locations where professional athletes and exercise newbies gather under the umbrella of personal strength. Nearly 3.5 million Gold's members chart and aim for their fitness peaks, perspiring beneath the gaze of certified personal trainers or pedaling beside peers during group riding sessions. In a diverse lineup of group classes, patrons strengthen abs with core-building classes, fuse Pilates and yoga during Centergy classes, and amp up heart rates with the pulsating Latin-dance moves of Zumba routines. Many Gold's Gym locations stockpile futuristic amenities, such as cardio machines with individual iPod docks and televisions that help keep patrons motivated by only showing Gatorade commercials.

Kim, the owner of Letz Get Fit, has seen it before: a new exerciser arrives at her facility feeling hesitant but, after working out, leaves feeling confident and accomplished. That's due in large part to the atmosphere Kim and her team have created. It's one in which everyone feels welcomed no matter their ability level. Those vibes carry through the facility's spinning classes, Latin music–inspired Zumba classes, and Z-Spin classes, which incorporate Zumba moves and stationary cycling. To make visits all the more accommodating, Letz Get Fit also supplies its exercisers with water and towels.

The waterslides have become as dry as beef jerky, the miniature golf course remains unputted, and the 1.5-acre pool is now home only to the memory of frolicking. But not all hope is lost. Save Sun Valley Beach, a coalition of local businessmen who refuse to give up on their childhood swimming spot, wants to reopen the park and is ready to kickstart their efforts with a Beach Blast.
