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.
A ninth-degree black belt in karate, Tony Nunez has proudly empowered thousands of women in the eight years since he founded Women Kickin It. As reported on Fox40, "Nunez is giving women something he wishes his mother had." After watching his own mother succumb to the crippling effects of domestic abuse, Nunez made it his life's goal to ensure not only that his students are equipped with survival techniques when faced with an attack, but also that they are building and nurturing their feelings of self-confidence and self-worth.
His classes provide a fun, safe alternative to standard self-defense techniques, such as firing pepper spray or breathing fire, while increasing mobility and body confidence. A low-key, welcoming environment facilitates training for women of all experience levels and body types, whether they sign up for group classes, one-on-one instruction, or sparring sessions with Tony.
In both 2010 and 2013, Bikram Yoga Central Valley's Stockton location was named Best Yoga Studio by San Joaquin magazine and KCRA 3 A-List. Despite the acclaim, owner Helena Monica and her staff have kept their noses to the grindstone.
Each day, sometimes as early as 5:30 a.m., they welcome students into a sweltering studio and lead them through Bikram yoga's traditional series of 26 postures, two breathing exercises, and one conga line. The benefits of the heat and movements are plenty. Students can reduce stress, sweat out toxins, increase their strength and flexibility, and tone their bodies.
We are a small yoga studio that take pride in making sure that all of our students feel safe in their yoga journey. We also have a wonderful boutique with books and yoga props, as well as clothing you will not find in the area. We also offer skin care, massage and Energy Healing sessions.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby, trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
No two days are the same at Pure Form PFT. One day it's dumbbells and sandbags, the next it's resistance bands and slam balls. But this much is always true—the trainers are going to get muscles working to capacity. Each session focuses on core, strength, and interval training regimes that cater to each student's fitness level and ultimate goals. Sessions involve short bursts of explosive activity, which keeps metabolism and conversational wit working in overdrive for several hours after each workout.
