Mahoney?s style of play emphasizes an attack style with serves and backhand topspin modeled in the style of Pete Sampras and a forehand and backhand slice like that of Roger Federer. Students learn to work toward specific, practical goals in their path to improvement.

After workouts, gym-goers can avail themselves of unlimited towel service and change in comfortable locker rooms.

The Spectrum Kids Club gives kids a place to play while adults work out and hosts such events as pool parties and pizza parties throughout the year.
Windsurfdeal's true showroom isn't inside its Palos Verdes location. It's on the water. The Pacific Ocean waits only a few miles from the shop's boards, begging guests to take the gear for trial spins on the waves. Equipment from the likes of AHD and KA skims the water and jumps through the air, each with its own distinctive qualities. To feel the difference between a Nah Skwell Fit and a Kool, guests can swap out their boards as many times as they'd like during a rental period. Or they can slow down with a leisurely standup-paddleboard ride, working their cores and learning the basics from an instructor. And unlike a lazy cartographer, Windsurfdeal's team doesn't forget about the East Coast—they ship gear to airports throughout the United States, in most cases delivering items in just one day.
Elite Training Center?s chief instructor Brian Rauchbach and his fellow instructors have applied their training in Krav Maga, mixed martial arts, and kickboxing within professional fields such as law enforcement as well as U.S. and International Elite Special Forces. Rauchbach peppers his lessons with pragmatic insights on close-quarters combat gleaned while working as a private security contractor and training alongside elite counterterrorism units overseas.
Beyond the practical aspects of fighting, the studio's instructors put a premium on self-respect, discipline, and the ability to savor a bag of Oreos over an entire month. Students, ranging from kids to police officers, forge inner strength as they pound heavy bags, target pads, and focus mitts.
