At CTD CrossFit, certified trainers help participants transform their bodies by struggling, sweating, and laughing together. Each session’s athletes work together as they pound out the punishing Workout of the Day, which blends power lifts and plyometrics with gymnastic movements and body-weight exercises. An average class might include a round on the rowing machine, followed by flipping oversize tractor tires and flinging medicine balls into the air with the greatest of ease.

Between awe-inspiring acts by animals and people alike, spectators can partake in abdominal-toning laughter thanks to the crazy antics and gags of internationally acclaimed funnyman Laughing Leo.

IKON Aveda Salon & Day Spa is an Aveda concept salon with three locations. Though each one has its own unique slate of services, the overall mission is unified—to cultivate stylish, modern looks for its clients and create a welcoming atmosphere. At the Menifee location, master stylists cut, color, and texturize hair, while skin care specialists conduct botanical resurfacing treatments—alternatives to microdermabrasions—that use tourmaline gemstone to gently reduce fine lines and the tiny acrobats who walk them. The Santa Ana and Tustin locations also offer haircuts and hair treatments, as well as a selection of makeup, lash, and skincare services.
