Adrenaline-pumping jams propel stationary bicyclers over imaginary hills and jumps during Revolution Fitness's calorie-crushing spinning classes. Throughout the classes, you'll vary your pedaling pace, feeling the burn of uphill climbs and the breeze of straightaway stabilized cycling. Try strength training and yoga for a less intense workout. During group strength-training classes, skilled instructors will lead the class in increasing body strength and speeding up molasses-like metabolisms. Yin yoga relieves physical and emotional stress through a series of deep poses that are held longer than those used in traditional yoga sessions or calendar photo shoots.
If you didn't know any better, it would be easy to assume that The School of Shred is a place to learn guitar, or at least a place to practice the art of destroying important documents. Instead, the school teaches its students how to shred through waves, shred across pavement, and shred down mountainsides. It's a fitting business name for owner Corey Oswald, who has seemingly spent more of his life moving on some kind of board than on his own two feet. Corey has more than 20 years of experience surfing, skateboarding, and snowboarding. But today, and for nearly a decade now, he helps others get their shred on by offering group and private lessons in all three sports.
Founded in 2004 by a group of childhood friends who grew up to play collegiate and professional soccer, DirectKix Soccer Productions aims to share their love of the game with a new generation. Youth soccer clinics cover not just technical lessons and game strategy but how to see soccer as a celebration of life. Grown-ups can also get in on the fun by signing up for the program's adult league, which sets teams against each other over a 10-week season, about the time it takes to forget all the rules of American football.
Beach Zone’s volleyball coaches come with experience—they've played competitively on three different continents. Coaches pass on their expertise to beginner players, advanced athletes, and everyone in between at local beaches. They’ll coach one-on-one or in larger groups, depending on client preference.
Custom Scuba’s two boats aren’t typical leisure vessels—they’re inflatable boats, originally designed for Navy SEALS. And like Navy SEALS, the company’s captains use the boats to reach hidden channels and hard-to-access waterways. However, unlike Navy SEALS, their top priority is fun. With more than 10 years of experience each, the two captains helm snorkeling adventures, fishing trips, and sunset cruises that showcase the area’s natural beauty at sites often not visited by other companies. True to its company name, the team also offers scuba classes, teaching basic underwater skills and doling out dive certifications with a teaching motto of never rushing a student and always putting safety first and cannonball competitions last.
Kiska the wolf was the first wild animal to roam the grounds at Moorpark College. She soon became part of the Exotic Animal Training and Management (EATM) Program. With the addition of landscaping and enclosures that mimic natural habitats, the program transformed into a 5-acre zoo with primates, coyotes, emus, and an African lioness. The zoo currently houses almost 135 animals and caters to students in the EATM. In addition to class work, they visit the zoo daily, learning how to train and care for exotic animals. Patrons can witness these interactions with the animals at the shows or during the animal demonstrations where student trainers present animals performing behaviors they have trained.
