In 1991, professional Swiss soccer player Ruedi Graf began World Cup Soccer Camps & Clinics as a humble operation with two small camps. Today, his team of 90 coaches interacts with about 5,000 children a year along the West Coast from Portland to San Diego. Despite their expansion, the clinics strive to maintain a 10-to-1 player-to-coach ratio in order to provide kids with individually tailored instruction. Sessions are divided by age group and skill set—U6 Fussball Academy camps introduce 5–6 year-olds to the fundamentals, the Classic Skills camp polishes basic skills and soccer concepts for 7–9 year-olds, and the Advanced Player's camp focuses on a more accelerated level of play for 10–13 year-olds.
Since its inception, Parisi Speed School has trained more than 150 NFL players and 5,000 scholarship-holding college athletes in its youth programs. Parisi consistently churns out all-stars with its Jump Start program, which trains youngsters at the time when their motor skills are most malleable. Outfitted with a 25-yard artificial-turf field, a four-lane track surface, and a weight room, the center hones agility, endurance, and coordination in future athletes aged 7–18. Using the center’s signature speed and strength training methods, supportive staffers not only infuse muscle memory with a suite of opponent-lambasting skills, they also teach them how to avoid injuries without hiring a stunt double to take tackles.
The instructors at B.O.S.S Fitness divide fitness programs into clear, manageable steps that put goals within reach. First, they assess each client's physical condition by measuring body fat, body mass, endurance, and ability to topple shelves in a library. Then, campers engage in half-hour to one-hour workouts that incorporate weightlifting and cardio training. Throughout the program, trainers monitor progress, making adjustments in accordance with how the results match up with the camper's intended fitness goals. Trainers also supply nutritional advice to help campers extend their fitness regimen beyond boot camps.
Personal trainer Zack Bertges channels an extensive fitness resumé to conquer his clients' physical limits. Having earned certifications from NASM and the International Triathlon Coaching Association, he founded Opus Fit as a venue for his scientifically backed training methods—regimens he has perfected while working with college athletes, elite gym facilities, and physical therapy programs.
Zack's 45-minute boot-camp classes blend his affinity for endurance running with core workouts and fast-paced cardio intervals. Set against Santa Barbara's outdoor backdrops, each session sends patrons jogging through picturesque scenery rather than a billowing cloud of treadmill exhaust.
