Today they’re playfully dubbed “The Boot Camp Guys,” but Jaron Eliopoulos and Jeffrey Sears were merely students of kinesiology when they met in 2005. After bonding over a shared passion for fitness, the two began to move toward their current nickname by leading boot camp on the side of personal-training jobs. But when their camp spread to two cities and more than 100 patrons, the amount it takes to overthrow a tyrannical couch potato, Jaron and Jeff could ignore their calling no more and LiveFit Boot Camp was born.
Accountability is the glue that holds campers together at the sessions, which are held at parks all over the region. Jeff and Jaron dream up a new workout each day and turn it over to trainers who not only encourage the clients that attend, but also check in with no-shows to make sure they’re staying on track. Through combinations of sprinting, suspension training, kettlebell moves, and other exercises, the routines keep muscles guessing and attendees engaged.
As they enter the training circuit at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. Thirty seconds is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms.
Parkpoint Health Club has been a part of the Sonoma County landscape since 1983, when Bill and Lindy Buchanan opened their first health club in Santa Rosa. Over the last three decades, the club has earned its reputation with three locations, a diverse lineup of fitness equipment, a friendly and professional staff of trainers, and supplementary amenities such as massage therapy, facials, and nutritional counseling. Adults can get their sweat on in Pilates, yoga, cycling, and Zumba classes, and kids can enjoy after-school play in childcare or swimming in the pools in the summer.

Some of dance instructor Jessica Hall's students have gone on to tour with Beyoncé and Mary J. Blige. That's because when she teaches, she taps into her experience as a choreographer and dancer for MTV and HBO and having made appearances in movies, TV shows, and commercials. At The Swan Studio, she shares her encyclopedic knowledge of dancing and the role of dancing in show business with her students. The studio also offers Pilates classes, which are designed to help students of all levels build lean muscle, lose weight, improve posture, and eliminate back pain.
