ElliptiFitOC's fleet of StreetStrider cycles combines the unique riding maneuvers of a traditional elliptical machine with the mechanics of an outdoor bicycle, freeing the once immobile elliptical from a stuffy indoor existence while fostering low-impact, cardiovascular workouts that engage all muscle groups.

Each riding session lasts 45 minutes and allows exercisers to glide at their own pace or race against the clock to see how many laps they can complete.

The skilled chefs at Spike’s Fish House grill a rotating cast of 8–10 daily fish specials to fill salads, rice bowls, and other entree options. A freshly cooked fillet can play hide-and-seek with forks in a salad’s nest of field greens, cucumbers, and roma tomatoes or bounce on the bowl’s bed of white or brown rice to the consternation of babysitters who insist it’s time to sleep. Chefs drizzle each dish in homemade sauces such as lemon-pesto aioli or chimichurri to infuse a final spark of flavor.
