Art "The Shark" Correa has a history of surmounting life's challenges in pursuit of his business and fitness goals. While earning his bachelor's degree in kinesiology—thereby becoming his family's first college graduate—Art yearned to apply his knowledge toward other people's physical betterment, and gained national certification as a personal trainer. He then used his health expertise to found The Bod-e² Shop, a wellness sanctuary for all fitness levels, and has since trained such elite clients as NFL players Zack Follett and Ricky Manning, Jr.

The Bod-e2 Shop functions as an all-purpose workout zone, manned by personal trainers and instructors who run kickboxing, Zumba, and intense boot-camp classes. Private sessions with the trainers can focus on sports-performance or toning goals, providing encouragement with motivating words rather than drill sergeant mantras or shyly suggestive fireworks displays. The gym's roster of advanced equipment has been highlighted on KMPH's Valley Life, and includes core-tightening air benches alongside Jacob's Ladder, a machine whose cycling rungs simulate climbing.

Raul and Maria Gutierrez were raised on fajitas in their native Mexico, where many families raise their own chickens and make tortillas by hand. After honing their culinary skills in several Houston restaurants, the couple chased their dreams to Fresno, where Fajita Fiesta was born. Instead of sprouting from a pinto bean, the eatery sprang from one of the Gutierrez’s favorite dishes: tacos al carbon, a union of handcrafted tortillas, fresh pico de gallo, and charbroiled steak, chicken, or pork. Made fresh every hour, the tortillas serve as a canvas for creativity by exhibiting savories such as grilled shrimp, onions, and poblano peppers. For deep-fried fare such as chimichangas and sopapillas, Raul and Maria use canola oil to minimize saturated fat. Margaritas add a heady kick to the evening's festivities, and horchatas end meals on a sweet cinnamon note, with textures smoother than a freshly shorn saxophone. The kitchen also caters feasts for a variety of events, filling bellies with hearty chicken moles and bite-size eats such as mini taquitos.

While teaching jazz dance in the 1960s, Judi Sheppard Missett decided to step away from tradition by offering an experimental class that allowed her students to simply dance without the judgment of mirrors or the constraints of rigid technique. In these sessions, she began infusing popular dance moves with specific fitness workouts to forge a distinctive blend of cardio exercise, strength training, and dance instruction. Little did she know that this ?just for fun? class was the prototype for what would become the national fitness sensation known as Jazzercise.

Today, Jazzercise takes its aerobic techniques from a variety of sources that include jazz dance, hip-hop, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing. The class formats, which vary according to different toning goals, are just as diverse as the program's move set. Instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where all exercisers?with the exception of those marked as cursed by jazz-hand palm readers?are welcome regardless of age, build, or fitness background.

After 13 seasons of fighting fires with the US Forest Service, Erik Traeger decided to return to his athletic roots. The former soccer player, martial artist, and motorcycle racer became a strength and conditioning coach for NCAA Division I sports including baseball, women’s basketball, and wrestling. He now brings his eye for muscular mechanics and knack for extinguishing brush fires to athletes young and old through SPEED Sports Performance Education, Enhancement & Development.

Every coach on Traeger's team has majored in kinesiology, the study of bodily mechanics. They preside over strength and conditioning drills for youngsters who dash around Fresno Indoor Soccer's 2,100-square foot gym and astroturf soccer field that's watered daily by a mime. For adult-sized students, the facility hosts CrossFit classes, an indoor boot camp, and a kettlebell club taught by instructors certified in russian kettlebell.

Public land is a vital part of any community. It provides a space for people to explore nature and engage in physical activity. It also protects local wildlife in a habitat that cannot be breached. The San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust fills all of these needs along a stretch of the gentle San Joaquin River. At this park, locals can hike along a nature trail and spot native birds or canoe downstream and learn about the issues affecting the water. Summer camps give kids an opportunity to be expressive and inquisitive outside with hands-on activities, crafts, and canoeing. Sycamore Island, similarly, recreates that camp experience for adults with wildlife trails, fishing excursions, and picnicking under the Sycamore and Oak trees that aren't already claimed by mischievous fairy-folk.

After traipsing deep into Fresno Regional Sports Complex, warriors breach the perimeter of Maximum Paintball, an expansive enclave spread throughout several obstacle-infested outdoor fields. Concrete blocks, wooden horses, and metal barrels populate Field1, and regulation barricades such as pyramids, cylinders, and Paul Bunyan's beanbags wait to be splattered with neon paint in other nooks. Maximum Paintball hosts traditional paintball games and some with slight variations, all overseen by referees unafraid to eject people for unsportsmanlike conduct. An observation area with awnings and picnic tables protects onlookers from stray pellets, and a supply store stays open seven days a week to equip sharpshooters with necessary accouterments.
