Q&A with Jonathan V. Graves, Owner

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

Focusing on our clients' exercise experience is our top priority. Our goal as a business is to have the best retention rates in the industry so we create a uniquely individualized group fitness experience by utilizing the latest in fitness-tracking software. Members are able to get instant feedback on calories burned, heart rate, and exercise heart rate zone percentages. We also offer our members monthly giveaways based on contests related to their monthly exercise achievements.

Do you run your gym according to a particular exercise philosophy?

Our training philosophy is that fitness should support your lifestyle and not that your lifestyle should support your fitness. We promote an active athletic lifestyle and through our fitness-tracking system we are able to integrate outdoor athletic passions of members with their fitness regimens.

What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?

Fun, challenging, dynamic, and rewarding

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Sand training has been around for some time. Most all professional sport franchises, Olympic training centers, and top NCAA D-1 programs have sand-training environments. We are the only facility in the US offering members a professional level sand-training studio in a health-club setting. The Sand we use is not beach sand. It is the same professional sand utilized on the pro beach volleyball tour and Olympic Games.

Tan By the Sea in Carlsbad and Deep Tan & Spa in Encinitas keep skin bronzed seven days a week, regardless of the season. To deliver the sun-kissed look of Apollo's cheekbones, the facilities offer tanning beds?which range in intensity from the introductory Sunrise 3500 to the lamp-riddled European high-pressure TurboPower 25000s?as well as VersaSpa chambers that provide summer-worthy fa?ades without the stern gaze of UV rays, misting clients from head to chakra with clear or bronzing solution in as little as 60 seconds. Decorating the salons are swimsuits, sandals by Havaianas, and products by Designer Skin, Hempz, and Australian Gold. In addition to tanning specialists, the spas' teams include aestheticians as well as technicians who can brighten pearly whites with dental-grade treatments.

At Cristian Belle Salon, the newly remodeled space's sunny yellow walls promptly greet guests, but a warm smile from the staff is never far behind. Friendly stylists straighten and snip tresses into complementing 'dos before sculpting hair with Moroccanoil, Mensdept. and Enjoy haircare products. After acrylic and Shellac polishes are layered onto freshly manicured hands, technicians dress them up with coats of glitter and such intricate images as Picasso break dancing. Sunless-tanning and skincare services are available, and Cristian Belle Salon encourages clients to visit the boutique area to try on trendy scarves and funky jewelry.

Dusti managed spas for more than 10 years before deciding to break away and start her own business. Today, she channels that experience into Sweet Cheeks Beauty Bar, her own boutique-style studio with a reputation for superior waxing services. During these hair-expunging sessions, the expert aesthetician rolls on a titanium-based waxing cream that works to reduce reactions on sensitive areas of the skin, leaving limbs, torsos, and wookiees who lost bets hairless without much or any irritation.

More than just a waxing business, Sweet Cheeks Beauty Bar's clients can opt for one of five facials, such as a custom facial or renewal peel, a clarifying back treatment, or a Sweet Cheeks custom massage that blends popular modalities into a single symphony of tranquil strokes.

With more than 20 years of combined experience, SoCal Waxology founders Brie and Nicole know their way around wax. Inside their appointment-only, boutique studio, they clear-cut hair from arms, bikini lines, and a whole mess of other areas. They use hypoallergenic hard wax designed to engulf hair, pulling it out from the root without breakage for a clean sweep. Better still, the wax virtually eliminates the risk of irritation, unlike a neighbor blasting death metal while you're trying to solve a riddle.
