Cardio Blast Fit Camp takes health seriously. It combines nutrition and exercise to provide clients with a manageable way to achieve their health and fitness goals. A coach starts off each new student with a body-composition and bone-density test to acquire a baseline. This information is intertwined with custom nutritional guidance and boot-camp-style workouts, creating a three-pronged approach to fitness and weight loss. Medicine balls enhance 60-minute cardio and body-weight workouts, which round out the whole-body fitness program.
The instructors at Fembody Fitness cultivate a fun, judgment-free atmosphere as they help clients forge svelte physiques during alternative fitness classes that use sensual, feminine exercises to develop confidence along with muscle tone. Seven days a week, instructors use engaging and unusual tools including ballet barres and aerial silks to develop students' stamina, incorporating graceful, feminine movements into exercises when possible. Each class culls influences from a number of fitness regimens, incorporating yoga, Pilates, or dance to create memorable workouts that leave students feeling as charged as a firefly's battery after a lightning storm.
G60fit builds a bridge between two worlds: the gym and the ocean. Their Surfset classes tone muscles with all the tools of a pro surfer, except for the waves. Students stand atop a teetering board to perform swimming motions, stretches, and bodyweight exercises, strengthening their core as they try to stay balanced and simultaneously flirt with an invisible lifeguard. There are also Surfset lessons for kids, which act as a virtual surf outing and an entertaining workout.
Aside from Surfset, G60fit offers 35-minute boot-camp classes. These center on a rotating theme, from kettlebells to kickboxing, and meet at a variety of times throughout the day to accommodate busy schedules. Though certified personal trainers and nutritionists are also on staff to develop individualized programs, the sense of community found in these classes is one of the gym's strongest motivational factors. A signature mix of teamwork and playful competition keep guests determined to complete single reps, as well as entire 60-day challenges.
In 90-minute sessions, groups of no more than 20 people combine their choice of 15 styles of freshly squeezed grape must from Napa, Central Valley, and Italy, designing a customized collective concoction. Each batch needs to marinate for six weeks at Purple Feet before transforming into a pumpkin and then into a drinkable product, with two optional check-ins throughout the process to add yeast and coo words of encouragement. People can fill their own bottles with their blends at no charge or purchase a new ($18) or used ($10) vessel from the winery. Purple Feet takes the personalization process a step further by dressing bottles in custom-designed labels after receiving the designs by email, scan, or boomerang. Purple Feet's campus also features a wine bar with outdoor patio seating.
Six soccer fields, six batting cages, and eight volleyball courts–all under one roof. And that doesn't even include the spacious turf field or weight room. The sprawling, 42,600-square-foot Smack Center presents an ideal venue for HB Summer Camps. In these full- and half-day sessions, kids sprint for touchdowns in flag football games, rack up points in lawn bowling, and improve coordination during martial arts training while making new friends and learning that exercise is more fun than a birthday clown passing out free puppies. As campers work on their games, local school, club, and community coaches provide supervision and instruction.
