Montebello Barnyard Zoo's animals are like rock stars, touring local homes and meeting places for one-on-one encounters and shows. Pony rides headline this traveling attraction, which also incorporates a petting zoo with various farm animals: goats, sheep, chickens, and even a llama.
The animals still spend the most time at their home venue, however. Here, fenced off areas contain larger animals such as cows and zebras, who always show up to work wearing the same black-and-white outfits. Bales of hay, wooden barrels, and a large, red barn create a rustic setting for picnics and birthday parties. Nearby, a merry-go-round spins endlessly and a truck?decorated to resemble a locomotive?pulls train cars on a tour of the grounds.
Each class at StudioFit is unique because each of the certified instructors choreographs an exercise routine set to a custom mix of heart-pumping music and lights. They welcome students of all fitness levels for spinning, cardio-kickboxing, and Zumba classes held within a spacious mirrored studio. In spinning classes, exercisers straddle stationary bikes as they pedal along to different resistances. In kickboxing, they make their ways through boxing techniques that fuel cardio workouts. In Zumba classes, dancers move to Latin-based rhythms and music, shaking their hips and performing cardiovascular dance moves more fun than the power-walking man.
When it comes to fitness, certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist Brian Stevenson thinks outside the box—literally. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Brian developed a taste for the great outdoors at a young age. That's why he's ditched cumbersome machines for mobile workout equipment that he can use anywhere, be it on the beach, in the park, or in the front yard of that girl you want to impress. Brian's one-on-one workout programs avoid repetition by drawing on everything from CrossFit to TRX suspension training, making the program ideal for sports condition, strength training, weight loss, and muscle rehab.

Pacific Diving Academy USA was founded in 1996 with a total of five diving students. Out of those humble beginnings, the non-profit organization has grown into a multifaceted institute for diving and gymnastics. At PDA's two training centers, coaches school students in all three sports while showing them how to maximize their abilities and become leaders. This positive environment helps kids of all ages thrive. In fact, the gymnastics program is open to tots who are just 12 months old, right around the time when they start to walk and sing The Star-Spangled Banner.
