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.
The trainers at Muay Thai Lao Kickboxing Academy impart martial arts knowledge from both nations at the academy's Sacramento and Elk Grove locations, where punching bags line concrete walls and wait patiently for flurries delivered by padded fists.

Kick-boxers of all skill levels can participate in muay-thai training to achieve a variety of personal goals, such as shedding weight or walking the path of muay-thai champion.
At Gleaming Smiles, trained staff assaults tooth stains with SmileLABS hydrogen-peroxide gel. After a coat of the potent solution, teeth soak in the whitening benefits for 20, 40, or 60 minutes beneath a cool, blue LED light. As the rays purge mouths of the bacteria that breed plaque and bad breath, they also safely and swiftly whisk away spots on teeth's surface and below. The process can purge stains from smoking or drinking coffee, tea, or wine, and replace them with bright white hues that are 2–10 shades brighter than before.

The technicians at Sacramento Laser Fat Loss Centers target stubborn fat cells around the body using Lapex 2000 BCS LipoLaser technology. This cold laser stimulates the body's reaction to exercising in order to relieve fat cells of their water, glycerol, and free fatty acids. Many patients lose up to 2 inches after two treatments, though results can be amplified with the addition of exercise, dieting, and whalebone corsets. A complete treatment sequence is composed of nine treatments over the course of three weeks.
Following the CrossFit ethos, Rocklin CrossFit designs high-intensity workouts that build strong, resilient bodies. Depending on their fitness level, participants may begin the muscle-manufacturing process with exercises that use only their body weight, such as squats, pushups, and tonguestands. As tone and technique improve, trainers tack on tonnage with the sonorous bells, dumb, and kettle bars, as well as plyometric boxes and medicine balls. Cardio blasters such as rowing, running, and rope jumping are also indigenous to workouts.
