The Mirror Ballroom, formerly Ultimate DanceSport, offers group classes in a variety of styles that range from salsa and hip-hop to historical dance. After treading the boards of its spacious dance floors, no other danceable surface will feel intimidating. Try rock stepping without having to barefoot it through a rock garden during Lindy Hop, or give either ocean-facing swing style—West-Coast Swing or East-Coast Swing—a go. New dancing chips can dip into beginner salsa or get to know a move or two in beginner social dance. The cast of instructors is comprised of enthusiastic teachers with impressive moves interested in assisting dancers of all levels. Come alone and scope out a dance or dinner partner, or bring a partner in crime by buying an additional Groupon as a gift to practice waltzing casually away from the scenes of your crimes.

Sports played a vital role in coach Jaws Bulivou's childhood in Fiji, whether he was barreling down the rugby field, hefting heavy weights, or matching wits and muscles with opponents in Judo. After years of coaching volleyball for boys' and girls' clubs, as well as Olympic gold medalists, Bulivou discovered a new passion for fitness through CrossFit. Rather than boring bodies with long bouts on the treadmill or marathon phone-book recitations, CrossFit regimens keep participants fully engaged with randomized Workouts of the Day that emphasize building functional strength with high-intensity exercises. Today, at Jaws' gym Pasifika Fitness, students train and tone their sinews not only with gymnastics, plyometrics, rowing, and barbell-hoisting, but with a steady, careful attention to their nutrition.
Like any good personal trainer, Get Fit Sacramento's staffers relentlessly pursue their clients’ fitness goals, but they don’t limit themselves to one-on-one sessions to do it. Instead, they supplement individual training with group fitness classes, Zumba, and R.I.P.P.E.D. workshops, all held within their fully equipped facility. They toss in even more benefits for members that work outside the gym, such as supplying an e-cookbook full of healthy recipes or teaching pet dogs to say “Feel the burn!” Inside the facility, students whip around jump ropes, use BOSU balls to deepen pushups, and grunt in time with the clangs of weight-training machines. Slate gray equipment punctuates the expanses of teal blue walls along with motivational posters picturing sweating, smiling exercisers being chased by a sleuth of bears.
A few years ago, Matt Weaver came down with a serious case of Type-2 diabetes. He needed to get into shape. After much searching, Matt realized that no gym in the area could help him with the kind of intense, focused regimen he needed. He started putting together his own fitness curriculum, wrangling his health into a manageable headlock. With that sorted, Matt set out on a mission to open a facility like the one he'd searched so hard for but was unable to find.
That's where Results the 24 Hour Gym comes in. There, Matt and his business partner have avoided common industry pitfalls, such as throwing clients at a gauntlet of workout equipment, or hiring toned mannequins to lead fitness classes. Instead, they've assembled a team of trainers to spearhead various high-energy group-training programs. Boot camps, for instance, are packed with motivation and little dose of the competitive spirit to help exercisers squeeze the most out of every minute. Meanwhile, the R.I.P.P.E.D. program combines resistance, interval, and plyometric training techniques, all of which exercisers perform to the motivating beat of up-tempo tunes.
CrossFit studios pulse with high-intensity workout routines. As students undergo varied exercises from the scheduled Workout of the Day, a shoal of coaches circumnavigates the floor, guiding movements, ensuring safety, and stopping any public displays of affection between star-crossed kettlebells. Combining weightlifting, gymnastics, and track-and-field techniques, CrossFit aims to build the kind of resilience, strength, and versatility that lends itself to every athletic endeavor, equipping students with the stamina to conquer any challenge they might face. Instructors scale each workout up or down to accommodate individual levels of fitness or exercisers recovering from restrictive injuries.
Since 1972, Spare Time Clubs has evolved into a 10-club, full-service family sports club company that includes programs for both adults and children. Each location varies in size—some boasting multiple complexes—and houses amenities such as lighted tennis courts, pools, kids’ play areas, and fitness centers. At the Diamond Hills and El Dorado Hills locations, members can shine up in the onsite European spas, and the jewel of the Gold River club is a lighted stadium court encircled by a 5,000 square-foot observation deck. In the event of inclement weather or courts being overrun by ball-chasing dogs, players can schedule time at the dedicated indoor-tennis center, where eight fully sectioned-off, championship courts glow under the power of tournament-level lighting. World-class coaches develop kids’ court skills at the junior tennis academy, students of which can practice with an unlimited number of sessions at any of Spare Time’s other clubs.
