The 18-hole Reidy Creek Golf Course covers 2,582 yards in the rugged hills of Escondido, supplying guests with a scenic backdrop for club-based revelry. The rolling terrain of the par 54 course—intertwined with manmade obstacles such as sculpted bunkers, sinuous lakes, and wind—challenges golfers as they attempt holes-in-one. The distinctive course, designed by the notable engineers at Cal Olson Golf Architecture not to contain any two identical holes, contains a golf shop, café, and golf clinics taught by PGA professionals.

After spending nearly a decade as a surf instructor in Maui, Hawaii, Matt Allen returned to San Diego to open Maui Surf Academy, a safety-first surf school with lessons for all experience levels. In a group lesson, students and curious sand crabs gather around teachers at a three- or four-to-one ratio, assimilating to basic technique with a 20-30 minute segment on the sand that includes a water safety lesson. The group then spends the remainder of the two-hour lesson in the water, practicing paddling techniques before working up the nerve to conquer an actual wave. The CPR- and First Aid–certified instructors also stress the importance of ocean etiquette, such as taking turns in the surf with nearby boarders and allowing ticklish waves to float by unsurfed. Private lessons follow a similar schedule but with one-on-one coaching, useful for younger students, accelerated learning, or specialized instruction of advanced skills. The stretch of beach used at MSA is beginner friendly, stabilized by sandbars and crabs that quiz surfers with waterproof flash cards.

The staff of Ambition Athletics finds that most gyms lead their members to failure. It may seem like a harsh stance, but it inspires them to push themselves to give their members hands-on education and coaching rather than turning them loose in a sea of machines. Indeed, the key piece of equipment the fitness studio uses has no moving parts at all: it's the simple kettlebell, whose use in strength training dates back about as far as you'd expect by looking at what's essentially a lump of iron with a handle. Focusing on fitness for performance, trainers help members to take control of their own wellness during personal training and small-group classes, where they teach everyone to safely swing kettlebells, use suspension equipment, and charm ropes to climb themselves.

As proprietor of Sew Inspired, Laura spreads her love for clothing design and assembly through creative sewing programs for children, teenagers, and adults. She starts kids out at the foundational level, encouraging them in the creation of simple projects such as crafting felt flowers or stitching smiley faces onto moms' best business suits. Teenage sewers take their learning into their own hands with self-directed sessions while tackling the more advanced concepts of sketching, patternmaking, and draping. Adults may opt to work on personal projects during unstructured open-sew studio times or hone their skills in three-week classes, during which they acquaint themselves with the sewing machine and set to work crafting A-line skirts.

While enjoying the tranquil lagoon waters of Agua Hedionda, yoga students hop on floating mats and practice poses that give them the balance and focus needed to tightrope walk across power lines.
