My Gym Children's Fitness Center, which currently has more than 200 international locations, began more than 20 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp off a sugar buzz. All classes are organized according to age level (starting as young as 6 months) and designed to incorporate the latest physiological and psychological research. Tiny Tykes gets babies moving with help from their parents, Mighty Mites teaches toddlers self-reliance and beginning sports skills, and Champions, a class for kids aged 6–9, emphasizes the importance of using teamwork to master more complex sports skills and achieve group goals such as building a human pyramid to reach the cookie jar. My Gym's energetic instructors are experts at using music, dance, and gymnastics to build youngsters' strength and self-esteem while stimulating their giggle-plexes. The noncompetitive environment fosters creativity and hands-on activities boost children's learning retention and fun quotient.
For more than 30 years, Precision Tune Auto Care has helped vehicles of all sorts run smoothly with an array of maintenance and auto-repair services. Fully trained mechanics whet engine appetites with an oil change ($29.90), then rotate and balance tires to ensure an even distribution of wear and tear, bringing inner balance to troubled rubber rollers ($59.80). A windshield-wiper replacement maintains driver visibility throughout the coming weather-filled months ($24.90), and a brake inspection ($19.90) safeguards against inconvenient malfunctions during no-holds-barred drag races down by the old nuclear power plant.
Redlands Gymnastics Club’s action-packed classes endow children between 18 months and 18 years of age with the interpersonal skills and physical discipline they will need to succeed in school or reality television. Led by enthusiastic coaches, classes meet once or twice a week and range from 45-minute parent-child sessions for tots (3.5 years or younger) to progressively longer and more challenging instruction for older girls and boys. Grade-schoolers can rise to the top of playground politics by mastering the splits in beginners or intermediate classes, and 3- to 5-year-olds can learn fundamental movement patterns in Tumble Tots sessions, also focused on cultivating social skills such as listening and not eating gym socks without the proper condiments. Redlands’s innovative program incorporates music, gymnastics, and dance to promote robust personal development and a positive self-image among its young charges.
As the name suggests, Just Cruzin Productions specializes in events with a lot of horsepower. Guests browse more than 1,000 hot rods and classic cars at The Classic at Pismo Beach, an annual show that has been drawing droves of auto enthusiasts to central California for almost three decades. Its expertly maintained autos on display are in mint condition—they're judged based on areas from their interiors to their engine compartments, as well as on the owner's overall attention to detail, making it hard to win just by taping cardboard cutouts of a Corvette to a wagon. But the company also produces other major open-air shindigs, such as The Wagon Wheel Country Music Festival.
What unites its large portfolio of events is a passion for charitable giving. Through the Just Cruzin’ Life Foundation, it's directed millions of dollars in event proceeds to organizations including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, and the Jerry L. Pettis Loma Linda Veterans Hospital.
