"It's all under one roof," says former Mr. Universe Peter Nielsen as he tests out one of Beverly Hills Club's more than 200 pieces of fitness equipment. Mr. Nielsen's claims ring true, as the 100,000-square-foot indoor facility is home to both state-of-the-art StairMasters and recumbent bikes alongside group classes in Pilates, yoga, and spinning. The 83-degree water of a 25-yard indoor lap pool beckons backstokers to beat personal records, and personal trainers get new or relapsed exercisers back on a healthy path. Half a dozen indoor tennis courts set the stage for USPTA- and USPTR-certified professionals to demonstrate backhands to students of all ages, and open-court hours let players face off against interior decorators and defend the honor of neon yellow.
The club's all-encompassing atmosphere caters to the entire family, offering whippersnappers an array of youth programs such as tennis and dance lessons, an arcade-style XRKade fitness center, and day camps. The club’s Manta Ray Swim School has 90 years of aquatic education under its belt, keeping youngsters afloat with both lifesaving and recreational skills, such as how to beat an octopus in a game of jacks.

When door-to-door canvassing for the civil liberties of corgis leaves your midday mouth watering, make a pit stop at Mudgie's, where the menu boasts more than 20 specialty sandwich selections filled with hearty portions of house-cooked meats and local products.
