A volunteer-based organization, EnrichLA helps promote thoughtful, healthful eating habits by building gardens at public schools. After working with the city to get permits, EnrichLA volunteers work with school employees to determine the best uses of the garden, and then raise funds for the garden's construction and subsequent school-gardening classes.
To prepare for planting, EnrichLA volunteers install sinks with running water, outdoor kitchens, and drip systems to water the garden, and build picnic tables, trellises, and raised garden beds. Once a school garden and fundraising is complete, the volunteers teach weekly classes where students can learn everything from composting and cooking to beekeeping. Students can also enjoy nutritious snacks straight from the garden.

Captained by executive chef Sean Poplar, Barbarella’s kitchen dishes out a seasonal menu of highly sophisticated, eclectic cuisine. When possible, dishes contain local, organic, and hormone-free ingredients sure to please carnivores, herbivores, and their hybrid omnivore offspring. Start off a supper with a rich burrata bruschetta loaded with prosciutto and sun-dried tomato pesto ($11) or a satisfyingly savory hummus with teriyaki mushrooms and hot loaves of pita ($11). Protein-packed platters, such as a braised short rib with crispy polenta and brussels sprout chips ($15) or Pacific salmon with rice cake, shitake mushrooms, and ponzu ($15), stifle deafening belly roars, and veggie dishes such as the mushroom risotto with shaved scallions and truffle oil ($8) lightly tickle the appetite into a blissful slumber. An assortment of pizzas, including a delicious discus topped with chicken sausage and parmesan reggiano ($16), are created using egg-free dough whipped up by Barbarella’s cooks in-house, not in the car on the way to the restaurant.

At the helm of Equilibrium Fitness' studio is Annabelle Rosemurgy, an equestrian and former Olympic athlete whose performances required enough core strength to pull off a handstand atop her horse during competitions. In her studio, she helms a team of certified instructors that leads a host of amped up Pilates routines and RealRyder indoor cycling classes.
Fifty five-minute SPX Pilates classes initiate novices into the intense practice, designed to keep on incinerating calories hours after the sessions end. The studio’s bread and butter, however, are the SPX and Systeme Dynamique classes—variations on the Pilates method—that use circuit training to target extra weight in the hips and thighs and isolate muscle groups all over the body to sculpt, tone, burn fat, and increase flexibility. Even the studio's indoor cycling sessions target core muscles, strengthen the upper body, and torch calories, getting legs pumping on RealRyder bikes that allow riders to steer and lean, simulating the real cycling experience of avoiding potholes and the maneating Sarlaccs that live inside them.
Coaches Robert and Euri Mills, the trainers at Club 26.2, have completed 57 and 8 marathons, respectively, and coached more than 3,000 runners and walkers along the way. Armed with invaluable experience in areas such as footwear, form and technique, hydration, and proper stretching, they coach athletes of all fitness levels toward their goals of training for runs of all distances, including 5K, 10K, half marathons, and full marathons. Of Robert and Euri’s students, 99% have crossed the finish line, and 80% of those were first-time runners.
