The certified trainers at Ventana CrossFit don't subscribe to gimmicky quick-fix weight-loss programs and fad diets. Instead, they value long-term lifestyle changes achieved through hard work and dedication, motivating their clients to change how they look at themselves and their overall wellness. In each class, they lead small groups of students through the high-intensity Workout of the Day, which challenges different muscle groups each time the sun rises to prevent fitness plateaus.
These total-body toning exercises are based on CrossFit's nine fundamental movements, including squats, shoulder presses, and dead lifts. The trainers take a custom approach to classes and can scale exercises to suit students of all ages, fitness levels, and character classes—from the feeble sorcerer to the burly barbarian. In addition to performing the foundational moves, students also swing kettlebells, heave medicine balls, and jump rope to carve a lean, toned physique.
An enormous green lizard crawls up the yellow stucco house where Tuscon Clay Co-op makes its home. The painted reptile cranes its head curiously toward the door, beyond which the co-op's volunteer members lead students of all artistic levels through children's programs and adult classes in all things pottery. Youngsters can head to summer clay camp or learn hand-building alongside older family members, while grownups spin unformed clay into a bowl, a vase, or another pottery wheel. A gallery brimming with the artwork of co-op members inspires those who belly up to the paint bar to bring bisque pieces handmade by local artists into full-color life.
Right off Madeira Beach's pristine, sandy shores, Barefoot Beach Hotel houses guests in swank suites, some of which overlook the Gulf of Mexico. White sand stretches from the hotel to the water so that guests can make their way to the waves without walking atop long stretches of foot-searing cement or mastering the art of levitation. Boat owners, meanwhile, can jaunt quickly across the street to rent a slip for their seafaring vessels. After a long day of lazing in the sun or swimming in the onsite outdoor pool, guests can use the in-room kitchenettes—replete with dishware, microwaves, and mini fridges—to prepare a pleasant end-of-the-day meal.
