The two personal trainers who run Five Points Fitness named their 17,000-square-foot facility after what they consider to be the five keys to fitness: strength, endurance, flexibility, stability, and nutrition. To help members achieve those essentials, they stock their gym with strength-training equipment and cardio machines, each of which are equipped with their own monitors. In addition to personal training, the staff leads group training sessions limited to two to five students, ensuring each one receives a dose of individual attention. Members also have access to group classes including yoga, cardio kickboxing, and Zumba—a high-energy dance workout that fuses Latin-inspired moves with club-worthy beats. The staff’s certified nutritionist helps members stick to healthy dietary plans by encouraging them to eat fewer butter sculptures, and onsite childcare Monday–Saturday mornings makes it easier for parents to hit the gym.

Members at Curves, a fitness center designed for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, strengthen bones, and increase metabolism. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottles to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions can create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to help create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Certified instructors lead small groups of no more than four humans through tailored regimens such as Pre-Ski Pilates, which preps snowsurfers for long days leaping over moguls, and Equestrian Pilates, which strengthens the muscles used most often in outrunning thoroughbreds. Disco-lates infuses workouts with groovy tunes, while Kettl-ates adds Russian kettlebell training into the exercise mix. Newly minted mothers can shed pregnancy pounds and tone their rocking arms during the Mommyilates sessions. Students of all fitness and experience levels are welcome, and Fit First happily adapts workouts to suit the goals and capabilities of their clients.

With five locations throughout the Bay Area, including three in San Francisco, Fitness SF caters to the needs of fitness enthusiasts and casual exercisers from Marin to Oakland. Each center brims with muscle-toning and pulse-raising equipment, allowing visitors a wide choice of activities, from pumping free weights to using ellipticals equipped with personal viewing screens.

Although personal trainers are on hand to help refine technique and design individualized exercise regimens, the gyms' classes encourage guests to work out in a more communal setting. Yoga and Zumba appear on every class schedule, but instructors at each location incorporate their own additional sessions, such as cardio kickboxing, Bollywood dance, and Pilates mat.

Many of the locations stay open until as late as midnight on select weekdays, which leaves plenty of time for a post-workout cooldown in the locker rooms.

The artists at Wine and Canvas awaken their students’ inner Rembrandts and Van Goghs with classes that pair a featured painting with specialty cocktails and wines. The mobile studio’s monthly calendar includes themed classes in which instructors expound on the nuances of painting Parisian street lamps, Japanese flowers, or Venetian cityscapes. The master painters—many of them local artists—provide step-by-step instructions while students mimic each stroke and periodically dip their brushes into glasses filled with crimson cabernet. Each of the studio’s various drink-friendly venues boasts a specialty libation selected to incite creativity or conversations with fellow painters. When the artistic frenzy concludes, students return home with a finished masterpiece large enough to conceal any wall safe or mirror portal.
