Fitworks is home to a dedicated cadre of certified muscle architects who guide eager physiques through intense, small group workouts. Peruse the schedule before sampling a tension-undoing yoga class or a weekend-morning muscle-pump session, ideal for prepping for an underwater bench-press that will determine the office's next round of promotions. One-hour Zumba classes harness the rhythmic power of merengue, conga, belly dancing, and more to kill calories while resuscitating sleepy toes. After classes, students can freshen up or flex unused singing muscles in Fitworks' shower facilities.
The term pranayama is often translated as breathing, but it actually means much more—it's the extension and expansion of the vital energy that resides within each living being. At Wilhelm Studios, born from dance academy Wilhelm Dance, students practice two pranayama techniques, inhaling and exhaling in sync with 26 Hatha postures. Heat facilitates fluid movement by warming the muscles, and teachers enable proper alignment by modeling poses and offering tips for beginners. The 90-minute classes integrate deep concentration with intense exercise, sharpening the mind-body connection and awareness of incoming wisdom teeth.
The Celiac Awareness Tour travels across the country to promote awareness of celiac disease and energize enthusiasm for gluten-free living. Each stop features presenters that range from medical experts who have studied celiac disease to vendors of gluten-free goods. Chefs' demonstrations exhibit recipes that don't contain gluten or Cracker Jacks prizes. Guests can also flit from booth to booth sampling gluten-free items from both local and national manufacturers and merchants, such as Rudi's Gluten Free Bakery, Natural Nectar, Feel Good Foods, and Redwood Hill Farms.
At Fairview Lanes, balls thunder toward targets along 20 contemporary lanes, buffeting between bumpers or freewheeling by gutters during open bowling hours. At MoonRock bowling, pulsing music and radiance from lasers, disco balls, and black lights slice through darkness like the DJ's night vision goggles. On Friday and Saturday nights the music borders on edgy, but special glow bowling hours held during the day on Saturday and Sunday feature family-friendly music and videos. Café 220 stokes athleticism with fuel in the form of beer-battered cheese fries and fried pickle spears, and Mac's Pro Shop supplies essential bowling gear. The alley also hosts leagues for all ages and parties for any occasion.
