Yoga Shakti Wellness Center's director, Diana Pipaloff, has unwavering confidence in her instructors' abilities. It's appropriate, because most of them learned their practice at the center. Their 500-hour training program, which includes post-graduate mentorships and internships, equips graduates with Yoga Alliance registration. Once trained, a select few of these yogis begin work at Yoga Shakti Wellness Center's locations in Irvine and Huntington Beach.

At each location, students stretch and breathe during more than 10 types of yoga classes. Shakti yoga, the center's flagship style, leads participants in combining sun salutations, poses, and energy work to move toward increasing their physical and spiritual strength. Other options from the more than 100 classes offered each week include prenatal yoga and gentle yoga, which elucidates yoga's foundational poses and philosophy.

However, the staff isn't super-glued to their yoga mats. They also teach ayurveda, a lifestyle that combines dietary changes with massage, meditation, and other purification therapies.

Total Training Boot Camp shares several key attributes with military-style training, the most obvious of which is an amped-up level of intensity. The differences, however, are just as notable. Trainers never attempt to motivate their students with harsh words and yelling, instead opting to inundate them with positive support. Students need every ounce of encouragement they can get as they struggle through workouts designed to achieve a three-pronged objective: burn fat, sculpt muscles, and improve the quality of daily life.

Each punishing boot-camp session engages the legs, abs, arms, shoulders, and internal hard drive to slenderize the body in as short a time as possible. Total Training Boot Camp's workouts challenge athletes of all levels; their scalable nature and wide appeal helped the company place as a finalist for CityVoter's Best Boot Camp in 2011. Aside from the flagship boot camps, trainers offer personal-training sessions that customize workouts to specific body types and goals.

Ornate crown moldings, limestone floors, and marble surfaces aren't typical gym décor, and that's the point. An unparalleled attention to detail went into the design at Living Fitness, resulting in a space that pairs cutting-edge exercise equipment with the sort of service and surroundings one would typically see at a high-end resort. In the locker room, towering mirrors reflect custom wood cubbies, fresh Mascioni linens, and guests amping themselves up for group FitBarre classes and high-intensity Bikini Bootcamp. Curtains of textured lighting spill across the sprawling facility, which houses Keiser pneumatic strength-training machines, FreeMotion high-incline treadmills, and a sun-soaked Pilates studio. Tailored to each client's goals, Living Fitness's personal training combines traditional strength training with balance, core stabilization, and power exercises that begin with a complete fitness assessment and an optional Rocky movie night.

The instructors at Waterworks Aquatics believe anyone can learn to swim, no matter their age. This belief drives each instructor-led session, accommodating everyone from babies as young as 3 months old who are just getting acquainted with the water, to older children learning more advanced strokes and adults learning to swim for the first time. The instructors focus on teaching stroke techniques that utilize muscle memory and rhythms that are easy to grasp, while cultivating a fun, relaxed environment to help reduce students' anxiety. They lead private, semiprivate, group, and Parent and Me lessons, all of which move at the pace of the swimmers' abilities. Beyond bestowing swimmers with efficient form, the lessons also help them stay safe in the water by teaching them how to control their breathing, reduce unnecessary movement, and stay completely still in the presence of pool krakens to avoid begin seen.

During Zephrin Augustine’s more than 10 years as a coach and athlete, he earned an array of nicknames that ranged from St. Augustine to Whomp Whomp. The most appropriate name for Augustine nowadays, however, is CEO. As the founder and head of Next Level Sports & Fitness, he draws on his strong fitness background—which includes a college football career at the University of Florida—to whip bodies into shape, aided by certified personal trainer Dimetress Barnwell. The duo specializes in boot-camp-style workouts, whose ever-changing cocktails of cardio, strength, and plyometric moves banish boredom more effectively than workouts that end with a fun fact about sweat. Held outside when weather permits, their dynamic fitness regimens melt away excess weight and tone physiques, enhancing the abilities of exercise newbies and decorated athletes alike.

Huw Lloyd Davies and Stu White started HDX Fit as a place where they can help others improve their own health and fitness. The center's training principles are built upon holistic health awareness, the fundamentals of nutrition, and metabolic conditioning. Alongside an excellent supporting staff, the team curates a curriculum of group training classes, personal-training sessions, nutrition consultations, and holistic life coaching.

HDX Fit also offers an online training program, a portal full of videos and written workouts for people who can’t make it to classes because their motorized unicycles are out of gas. The online program includes a weekly telephone chat with one of the gym’s trainers, who speaks to the philosophy of the center's inspirational founder.
