EveryBody Personal Training bolsters burgeoning muscle groups and augments overall well-being by pairing each client with a dedicated, knowledgeable fitness jockey. After scheduling a first appointment, workout gurus meet with their charges in a personalized facility to go over goals, expectations, and previous weight-wrangling experience. One-hour sessions may touch on stretching, cardio work, and ways to achieve the proper form required to master benches, squats, and other limitation-busting exercises. Additionally, a nutrition guide offers a measured path to healthful eating and exposes the problems with hardcore workout diets of raw eggs, raw steaks, and the raw emotion provided by scarfing down Mother’s Day cards.

Beginner students can spend a single session exploring a new instrument or hit the ground running with a trio of lessons to build on new knowledge and refine finger finesse. Though not included with this Groupon, six-string scholars can extend their sessions into the realm of superstar training with the center's comprehensive rock-band program.

During her childhood, Cheryl Brown learned everything she could about horses. She joined the Hacienda Hi-Riders horse drill team and participated in 4-H club meetings before majoring in animal science for her first year at Cal Poly, Pomona and writing Mr. Ed's memoirs. Eventually, Brown's love of animals took a back seat to her love for the arts as she switched gears and graduated with a master's degree in art education, which blossomed into a 15-year career as an art teacher as well as a YMCA instructor and a Girl Scout leader. At Art and More Day Camp, she aims to excite and enlighten youngsters with an endless array of art classes, outdoor activities, and horseback-riding lessons. The spacious facility, which brims with cats and other four-legged friends, comes outfitted with a fenced-in pool, a bounce house, and foosball tables and welcomes kids as young as 3 for one-hour sessions or half- or full-day camps. Brown's favorite class, Parent with Young Child Art Time, has adults and their preschoolers joining creative forces as parents learn the stages of development and little ones create and play. More than 17 art classes provide an outlet for mini adults to learn a range of art skills that include the basics of drawing, how to create collages, and the art of papier-mâché-ing a younger sibling's mouth shut. Brown also teaches youngins how to properly ride a horse during private and group lessons, during which she bestows her many years of riding experience.

And party hosts can call upon the Kyle Barker Band, which plays events ranging from birthdays to going-away parties for your noise-sensitive neighbors.
