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.
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.
The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library celebrates the life and career of the 40th president, Ronald Reagan, with informational and interactive exhibits and historical tours through the campus's museum and library.

Ghouls, goblins, angels, and bumblebee's trample through the friendly filth at the Conejo Valley Halloween Mud Run. Racers sweat in running spandex or costumes as they complete either a 5K or 10K course complete with hay bales to hurdle, walls to climb, and mud pits to throw incriminating evidence into. The prospect of warm showers greets racers as they finish, along with food vendors, exhibitors, and live music. Racers power through the muck in groups of 75–100 fellow crazies, each affixed with an electronic chip for accurate race timing.
With more than 30 years of kid-entertaining experience, The Little Gym provides a safe and noncompetitive environment wherein wee ones and maturing moppets can exercise their brains and bodies. Visiting youngsters glean social, intellectual, and emotional skills from the facility's professionally developed parent/child program at both the Thousand Oaks and Calabasas facilities. The program features diverse activities in gymnastics, dance, sports, and parent-child yodeling, for mountain-echoing communication more effective than a squeal. Kids can enjoy Thousand Oaks and Calabasas programs for toddlers—who can participate with a parent—through grade schoolers, with programs in gymnastics catered to differing ages, muscle development, and hatred of vegetables. Each session's hands-on activities keep the indefatigable energy motors of little tikes revving, facilitate bonding, and boost listening skills, attention spans, and confidence. Check a complete class schedule for Thousand Oaks and Calabasas to confirm times.
Drawing from diverse yet complementary backgrounds in fitness, ten coaches heal, motivate, and strengthen trainees during small group classes at The Pilates Studio Fitness & Wellness Center. Coaches act as the in-house certified nutritionist and lead guests through Pilates-yoga fusion sessions. Their classes are capped at about 10 students, allowing them the luxury of lavishing students with the attention they need to hone their form, posture, and guttural grunting technique. Fitness classes range from the body-strengthening Pilates group classes to the cardio-heavy Zumba to TRX, which helps patrons enhance their flexibility, balance, and core strength.
Guests can further change their lifestyles with the aid of Colleen's nutrition counseling, and pamper themselves with aesthetic services such as waxing and skincare at the hands of aesthetician Maryam. To augment washboard abs or differentiate themselves from sentient snowmen, patrons can bronze up with a custom airbrush tan.
