If you ask the team at Tri-California Events what a triathlon is all about, you might hear about swimming, biking and running, but what you’ll hear the most about is how fun they are. As each racing season emerges, the team gets to work running fun races from the mud-filled M.O.R.E. Wildflower Obstacle Course in the spring to Scott Tinley’s Triathlon in fall, replete with on-road and off-road options. One of their most popular events is the Wildflower Triathlon, now one of the largest triathlons in the world. During this packed event many athletes camp out for the weekend to ensure a memorable experience and to make sm’roes as race fuel. Tri-California’s team also runs the San Francisco triathlon at Alcatraz, which includes a swim portion that sends participants partway to famed Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay.
Custom Workouts might feel a bit smaller than your average chain gym—that's part of its appeal. The private setting allows gym-goers to work out on top-notch equipment without feeling intimated or overwhelmed. Staying true to its commitment to the individual, the gym also offers personal training with a reasonable price tag. But those who crave the motivation of peers can opt for group classes such as Zumba and spinning.
The Circuit Family Fitness aims to offer a venue for guests to infuse health into their lives, whether that stems from fitness or relaxation. The fitness side includes a fully equipped gym with free weights and cardio machines, as well as fitness classes, such as Zumba and cardio kickboxing. Guests looking for relaxation can recline in the infrared sauna, unwind with a Swedish massage, doze an aromatherapy body wrap, or enjoy a number of other spa services.
Johnny Cash, one of the world’s most beloved musical storytellers, gets a fitting salute in The Cash Tribute Show featuring James Garner, a heartfelt production that honors the life and the legend of the Man in Black. With a backup band that pegs the “boom-chicka-boom” sound of the Tennessee Three, lifelong Cash fanatic James Garner (not the guy from The Rockford Files) leads fans on a delightful travelogue through Johnny Cash’s travails. From Cash's youth as a scrappy foghorn to the day he found his melanoid wardrobe, The Cash Tribute Show intersperses anecdotes and personal accounts of Cash encounters between Garner's renditions of his hit songs. With lungs full of respect and big shoes to fill, Garner eschews the shtick of impersonation and the redolence of method actors by singing Cash’s classics with a true fan’s passion and reverence, making the hearts of the happy audience swell like a perfectly cooked Folsom Prison soufflé.
The City of Lemoore Parks and Recreation department encourages an active, fun community through a variety of sports, fitness, and social activities for all ages. Youth programs encompass everything from boxing and peewee T-ball to the Lemoore Drama & Film Company, in which kids learn the theatrical skills needed to convince doctors that they suffer from acute candy deficiency. Among the myriad enrichment seminars and sports leagues, adults can get fit during Zumba or yoga classes or learn the basics of wildlife photography. Of course, the department also maintains an array of local parks, keeping each one's lawn lush by mowing regularly and shooing away the adjacent counties' wild goat herds. At the Waggin' Tails Dog Park, canines frolic freely among their four-legged peers, and the Lemoore Arbor Plaza hosts open-air concerts under towering arches. Other havens under the department's purview include the Lemoore Senior Citizen Center, where mature adults gather to socialize and play bingo on Wednesday nights, and the Lemoore Golf Course, founded in 1928 when its green grass was converted from black and white.
