The individual attention of personal training and the camaraderie of team workouts converge at The Edge, a 3,000-square-foot kettlebell gym inside Personally Fit’s workout studio. Here, certified personal trainers lead three types of functional fitness classes that use tools such as weighted sleds and suspension-training harnesses to increase strength, burn calories, and gear up for Santa’s annual reindeer tryouts. During the studio’s signature kettlebell classes, students sculpt limbs and cores using cast-iron weights shaped like small cannonballs. To help to prevent injuries and reap each motion’s benefits, a Russian Kettlebell–certified instructor stresses proper form throughout the workout. The earth’s gravitational pull powers TRX classes, which help up to 10 students to master body-weight exercises using suspension-training straps. Since each movement can be tailored to a variety of skill sets, these workouts suit the needs of new exercisers and seasoned athletes alike. Built around a circuit of cardio and strength stations, boot camps boost fitness levels with sandbags and battling ropes, not piggyback rides from Richard Simmons.
At Dental Pros, expert tooth wranglers Dr. Emanuel and Dr. Rabizadeh transform begrimed mouths into bright grins through cosmetic and general dental services. From veneers and Zoom! teeth whitening to dental emergencies such as root canals, the dentists maintain pearly whites' porcelain sheen using both modern techniques and time-honored ritualistic toothbrush sacrifices.
Dr. Jeffrey J. Stein harnesses more than 20 years of experience to lead his professional team of bicuspid buffers in illuminating smiles with a plethora of health-boosting services. During the dental exam (an $85 value), a tooth technician scours each patient's mouth house in search of oral abnormalities, ghosts of baby teeth, and unwelcome tartar guests before a series of digital x-rays (a $125 value) and digital photos (a $40 value) expose chompers with cavities. The appointment concludes with a thorough polishing (a $93 value), where a dental doyen shines pearly whites until they're bright and plaque-free.
Melissa was a casual gym-goer for most of her life, until one day a fitness instructor suggested that she should consider teaching fitness classes. It took her a year to switch careers, moving from teaching elementary school to teaching group fitness classes. All the while, she was scooping up certifications in anything she could get her hands on, including a National Academy of Sport Medicine certification as a personal trainer. Armed with six certifications and a massage therapist license, Melissa— one of the top endurance athletes in Ventura county— decided to open her own gym, where she could share her love for fitness with others. Rocksteady Fitness was born with the belief that exercise could be, and should be, fun. To that end, Melissa helps whip clients into superb shape by teaching group fitness classes such as kettle-bell training, Pilates, Zumba, yoga, and boot camps.
