Created as an extension of ValleyCare Medical, LifeStyleRx prescribes simple, healthy fitness routines for exercisers of all ages and skill levels. From their center within the ValleyCare Medical complex, staff members conduct up to 115 group exercise classes a week, some of which take place in a heated indoor pools. Personal trainers provide specific regimens to help clients accomplish fitness goals or recover from injury. They also supplement their physical training with nutritional counseling, walking their charges through a process that begins with creating grocery lists and ends with actually preparing recipes in cooking classes.
While members and visitors torch unwanted calories, their children can relax or take exercise classes of their own in the childcare center or YouthFitZone. The facility also provides ample postworkout amenities, including steam rooms and saunas.
Students stretch their arms and slowly arch their backs as natural light spills in through the floor-to-ceiling windows of Cosmic Dog Yoga’s studio. The studio’s experienced instructors are just as adept at putting these students at ease as they are at guiding them through physically demanding poses. Though many specialize in styles such as Vinyasa flow, meditation, and tribal-style dance, it’s not uncommon for the same instructors to teach basic yoga or a playful Cosmic Power class that demonstrates how to blow up stars millions of miles away simply by concentrating hard. In the lobby, the staff arranges mats, yoga books, towels, and mala beads alongside natural MezAroma products such as soy-based candles, sugar scrubs, and lip balms.
The history of wine in the Livermore Valley spans 250 years. Spanish missionaries planted the region's first grapes in the 18th century, and Robert Livermore sowed the first commercial vines in the mid-19th. These early efforts led to America's first international gold medal for wine at the 1889 Paris Exposition, when California grapes beat out bordeaux in the annual race to the top of the Eiffel Tower.
The guides at Livermore Valley Wine & Cycle Tours lead cyclists into this historic, scenic valley in which some 40 wineries currently reside. Rides between them follow moderate routes, letting peddlers soak in views of the canyons and ridges that rise and fall between the clustered rows of vines.
Etched into the hills of Livermore Valley wine country, the award-winning Poppy Ridge Golf Course challenges fairway-navigators to conquer its 27-hole, Scottish heath-inspired layout. The course's four sets of tees per hole help golfers adjust for their skill levels, and master architect Rees Jones's extensive bunkering makes the sparingly used quicksand trap that much more surprising.
A cosmetic complex with décor ranging from the chic black tile of its salon to the day spa's bamboo-and-incense ambience, Aventine fills its space with a consummate roster of beautification treatments administered by a highly specialized staff. The classic massage (a $90 value) tailors its 60 minutes of total relaxation to your muscular map's spinal mountain range, flowing energy rivers, and buried treasure chests of stress. A signature 45-minute DermaSweep facial (a $127.50 value) mechanically extracts and exfoliates the face with a gentle vacuum, lifting away dead and deadbeat skin while combating the oxidative aging effects caused by years of reenacting Three Stooges shorts. The treatment begins with a consultation and keeps the skin relaxed throughout with a cleansing massage and therapeutic mask. A three-month membership ($297 value) to Aventine Spa treats members to a range of discounts on salon, massage, and aesthetic services.
