Nikki Warren recognized a need in her community for a fitness program where women could let their hair down and workout without fear of being judged as unfeminine. She decided to fill that void herself by starting a tough, no-frills, and functional intense training program for women only. Rounding up some of the best practices and Schwarzenegger-esque one-liners from her career in fitness, Warren and her trainers helm rigorous, yet individualized regiments, keeping each member of the group in mind to ensure nobody gets left behind. They provide goal sheets to let each person know what exercises they should focus on during each one-hour class, as well as personalized meal plans designed to help generate results outside the gym.
Along a hiking trail, it is not unusual to find a cairn, which means "path" in Gaelic. These stacks of stones, designed to help mark the trail, also serve as the inspiration for Kairin Clinic, a medical practice created to guide patients to better health. Two sisters, Dr. Aimee Warren and Rebecca Warren, FNP, set out to create the kind of practice they'd choose for themselves, combining traditional medical care with the relaxing experience of visiting a spa, yoga class, or scented-candle aisle. Family and aesthetic medical care top the list of services, though nutritional counseling, weight management, women's fitness, yoga, and guided meditation classes are also offered. Patients waiting for their appointments can sip herbal tea in a relaxing, tranquil space.

The rolling contours of Fallbrook Golf Club's course wind through scenic Gird Valley to carve out a sturdy par 72 course highlighted by manicured greens and majestic, mature trees. Divot diggers of all skill levels will be led astray by the course's shimmering water hazards, strategically placed bunkers, and enticing strip-malls. The course spans more than 6,000 yards, with a slew of difficult par 5 holes neatly framed by native live oak, sycamore, and eucalyptus trees. Players grab a friend for a full round, complete with two large buckets of range balls for handicap-lowering rehearsal on the course's full driving range and practice green. Included golf carts ferry players between tees with the majesty of Phil Mickelson traversing Augusta on the back of a trumpet-playing lion.
