West Coast Sports and Fitness Center gets bodies into shape under the guidance of owner Steven Sanchez and director of fitness Ron Carter. Sanchez is guided by 12 years of experience working with doctors, physical therapists, and chiropractors, during which time he studied how the body functions and improves through activity. Meanwhile, Carter has spent more than 21 years coaching men, women, and children across a variety of sports and is a certified personal trainer and sports-injury specialist.
Inside a spacious fitness center, Steven and Ron oversee a staff of instructors who lead students through cardio kickboxing, boot camps, and Zumba. Athletes can also train on a tract of turf inside the center that simulates a real-life sports field or the furry back of an imaginary green monster.
The simplest cocktails are alcoholic and nonalcoholic liquids swiftly stirred together into a new libation. During Miss Mixology Cocktail Course's hands-on sessions, a certified experienced bartender makes far more complicated cocktails seem just as simple. Spending up to two hours at clients' home, the bartender reveals the techniques behind crafting delectable spiked beverages.
The instructors at FreeSpirit Yoga lead a variety of classes that keep pace with students of all experience levels, from beginning yogis to 4-year-old kids already well versed in stretching toward the cupboards. In introductory-level sessions, teachers impart the simple poses and breathing techniques that springboard into higher-level disciplines, such as Sculpt n’ Core's blend of Pilates and strength training. An intense cardio workout set to Latin-inspired beats, Zumba sets hearts thumping and legs moving atop the studio's hardwood floors surrounded by lavender walls.
The pilots at Star Helicopters discovered their shared passion for aviation at different times in their lives—some as soldiers, some simply as kids dreaming of the clouds. Today, as they all oversee a flock of Robinson R22s and R44s, Astar 350s, and Bell 206B3 Jet Rangers, they lift off over Los Angeles' mountains, beaches, and skyscrapers, patrolling the limitless skies as they shoot aerial photography, assist in movie production, and instruct aspiring aviators in how to take the copter's reins themselves. During tours, passengers fly over the LA Basin, sweeping past landmarks such as the Griffith Observatory, the Santa Monica Mountains, and Hollywood Studios.
