AdventurePlex has developed an easy recipe for lifelong healthy habits: an early start, plenty of space, and plenty of fun things to do. They've also discovered that this recipe works just as well on parents as on children.
Outside AdventurePlex's 16,000-square-foot facility, a 35-foot-high rock-climbing wall stretches across 1,630 square feet of climbing area so that families of grapplers can train to scale mountain summits or tickle the Statue of Liberty's chin. A ropes course similarly fosters teambuilding and confidence 20 feet above the ground, while a flourishing garden of herbs and vegetables helps kids understand the origins of what goes into their bellies. The Courtside Café completes the food's life cycle with a menu of leafy greens, wraps, juices, and American staples. Indoors, a five-level AdventureRoom play structure preps wee ones for a future of healthy living and boardroom obstacle courses with its network of mazes, tunnels, slides, and ball pits. In 2013, the play structure won a Best of the Beach award from Easy Reader for Best Indoor Play Facility.
The AdventurePlex crew curates a variety of activities, including birthday parties, fitness classes, and summer adventure camps that keep muscles and minds engaged in a fun, safe environment. Parents, meanwhile, can surf the Web on AdventurePlex's WiFi—but adult-only yoga and body-sculpting classes let them find some "me time" without taking clones out for a romantic night on the town.

A sleek white Ferrari purrs in the parking lot, and suddenly the opaque window rolls down to reveal Kim Kardashian behind the wheel, beaming with joy at her new custom-tinted windows. Fresh Window Tint’s owner Junior Ayala smiles, knowing he has satisfied yet another customer. Since his father and uncle opened the first location in 1990, Junior has expanded their automotive empire to include three locations, each of which cares for clients personally with custom window tinting and other services.
Using only premium products with at least a 20-year history, which includes Llumar protective window tint, insured technicians wrap windowpanes to reduce heat, solar glare, and up to 99.9% of UV rays. They also protect cars’ bodies with vinyl vehicle wrap or enhance headlights with 3M products. Like wallpaper made from dictionary pages, tinted windows are also stylish and practical for residences and businesses, allowing owners to save up to 40% on energy costs. Customers who live in the Santa Clarita/Valencia area may take advantage of Fresh Window Tint's pickup and drop-off service. Customers visiting from farther-flung locations can relax on the lounge’s plush leather sofas, enjoy snacks and beverages, and watch TV while their cars are being armored against heat and the blinding glare reflected off glass-bottom airplanes.
As a working actress, Judie Aronson was always working out. She moved from one workout modality to the next, but it wasn?t until the fitness devotee came across a fusion of Pilates, cardio, and strength training that she knew she?d found an exercise formula that wasn?t only effective, but engrossing. Wishing to share her discovery with the community without investing in a 20-ton megaphone, Aronson opened her RockIt Body Pilates studio, which garnered a plethora of enthusiastic press, including the accolade of Best Workout Trend and Best Personal Training 2011 from Southbay magazine. She and her team of trainers introduce clients to dynamic, challenging, and fun workout sessions that target a variety of muscles using specialized Pilates equipment.
RockIt Body's two locations, in Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach, have become successful enough to garner commercial attention from a television camera. Aronson's many clients have included Bill Engvall, who used the studio when preparing for Dancing With the Stars, and Olympic gold medalist Rebecca Soni, who is now a trainer at RockIt Body Pilates.
Aqua Salon owner Kathy Snyder loves a challenge. When asked what she likes best about her job, the veteran hairstylist told Our South Bay, “So many of us are particular about exactly what we want our hair to look like but haven’t any idea how to articulate it to someone. It’s my job … to ‘get it’ when a customer reaches out for help.” A former employee of celeb-favorite Cristophe Salon, Snyder spent 10 years meeting the often daunting needs of Hollywood’s most demanding heads. Today, she doles out that same level of service in an environment that is decidedly more relaxed, complete with a soothing ocean view and skylights that allow the sunshine to stream in.
As guests sip wine and watch the waves roll along the sandy shoreline, Snyder’s team of master stylists care for hair with cutting-edge cuts, extensions, and balayage coloring techniques. Makeup artists employ the Jane Iredale line of mineral makeup to beautify visages, and spray tans by Infinity Sun provide a golden glow to help prep bodies for the beach or a stint on James Cameron’s mantel.
After years spent volunteering for nonprofit fundraisers, Fit On founders Franca Stadvec and Angela Bennett understood the power of people coming together for a shared purpose. When that purpose became supporting each other in their journey toward better fitness, Fit On Studios came into being. The studio hosts intimate group classes to maintain a supportive atmosphere in a space illuminated by picture windows and vibrant earth tones.
During cycling sessions, guests climb onto adjustable Schwinn bikes to burn fat and clear their minds by focusing solely on their workout and the inspirational bumper stickers on the bike in front of them. The center also focuses on joint-friendly exercise, such as barre classes that use low-impact, focused movements to tone lean muscles and improve balance, and TRX suspension training that builds strength by leveraging the body’s own weight.
