An elite group of trainers with high-level amateur and professional experience lead Bound Boxing Academy. They offer a range of class aimed at teaching kids, women, and men everything from proper footwork to how to properly wind up your fist before delivering a knockout blow.
Equilibrium is important in yoga, which relies on both mental and physical exercise. The instructors help balance strength and finesse, aided by the fact that they come from such varied backgrounds. The diverse group discovered yoga after playing traditional team sports, travelling in India, and practicing medicine. They recognize that no matter how often someone might meditate or practice postures in candlelight, which clients can do in hatha yoga or candlelit flow classes, occasionally, that same person wants to punch something. In that case, the studio’s kickboxing classes, which combine authentic fighting techniques with body-weight exercises and stretching, are an ideal option.
When the founders first envisioned what would become the Hale Holistic fitness studio, they already had balance on the brain and hoped to integrate agricultural self-sufficiency. To do this, they created an urban rooftop garden in the middle of the city, where they harvest organic veggies to create antioxidant-packed smoothies or make travelling cornucopia salesmen feel better about their job. Any produce that’s not straight from their rooftop, they’ve sourced from local, sustainable farmers. Because they’re so confident in the power of smoothies to improve health and pair with yoga, they give one to every client who attends a class.

Over the Bridge Coronado Tennis brings together active amateurs and USPTA-certified coaches at an illuminated five-court facility for rousing matches and lessons.

When ready to unveil their shiny new skills, players may sign up for the group's singles leagues or take advantage of Over the Bridge's player matching service, which recommends players of similar skill level and love of long walks on the beach.
Ed Harris's knowledge of golf could fill a book—and it has, three times over. The PGA pro and author of instructional books that teach golfers about swing dynamics, short-game mastery, and course strategy also shares his expertise in lessons at his eponymous school, which has welcomed high-profile alumni including Clint Eastwood, Alice Cooper, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Private lessons provide personalized programs to improve skills, often using video evaluation to further pinpoint the exact moment the student lost their form and spun into a pirouette. Nine-hole [playing lessons present on-course challenges, and classes designed for juniors teach young players the fundamentals of the game, including how to react when golf carts start bucking.
A newly opened private fitness center in downtown San Diego, Urban Athletica is wholly dedicated to functional movement. In other words, you won’t find free weights here, nor treadmills or other cardio machines. Instead, clients use their own body weight as resistance, as well as props such as sandbag weights, jumping boxes, tires, resistance bands, and Core Stix (a ski-pole-like equipment designed to work the arms, core, and legs). Members can take personal training sessions with certified master trainer and Urban Athletic owner Nicholas Marion, or work up a sweat in the studio’s intense small group classes.
