At San Clemente Gym, cardio and strength-training sessions build bodies anew from the ground up. Here, guests forge strong abs, arms, or legs, in addition to burning off excess weight during convenient workout times. And after an intense session, guests step into the infrared sauna to soothe and refresh sore muscles.
Xtreme Fitness's trainers put the ample square footage of their space to good use by providing equipment and classes for every kind of exerciser. Group fitness teachers lead classes in the gym's 30-bike spin studio, hot yoga studio, or Pilates reformer studio. Dozens of machines and free weights let guests perform strength workouts targeted to the muscles they desire. And a certified nutritionist helps both members and non-members customize a nutrition plan to help them lose weight, gain energy, and rid themselves of guilt about tearing grapes away from their families. They also offer on-site child care in a spacious, game-filled room with entertainment suitable for kids as young as two months to as old as 14.

Some people are born athletes, but proper training can give most anyone an athletic edge. The team of trainers at Velocity Sports Performance knows how to take personal performance to the next level, just as they have done with their former clients?many of whom include professional and international athletes. Programs for student athletes help them achieve new heights from season to season and training for adults ranges from group fitness classes to elite personal training. With a massive 15,000 square feet of football turf, running tracks, ball courts, and lifting areas, programs can be tailored to help athletes excel in just about any sport.
Even in a group setting, people receive personal attention during workouts at CrossFit Insanity. The coaches achieve this by tailoring Olympic-style weightlifting, gymnastics, and plyometric exercises for each person. That way each session can incorporate both seasoned athletes and newbies, who get fit by swinging kettlebells of differing weights and jumping onto boxes of differing heights. Other scalable exercises include performing pull-ups or flipping tires that are big enough to fit onto a tractor or defective Hot Wheels car.
