An official American Heart Association CPR training center, Safety Training Seminars has provided first-aid education in life-saving courses since 1989. Although the center's American Heart Association instructors possess extensive life-saving skills, they still know how to present their material for the general public. Despite the urgent nature of the techniques they teach, they manage to create a low-stress and casual environment. Catering to those with busy schedules, classes are scheduled year-round across the Bay Area, with many times and locations available.
A Paul Mitchell Partner School, The California Academy tends to the talents of student tress tamers and skin sparklers with a range of supervised hair, wax, and skincare services. The 8,500-square-foot training facility excavates unwanted hairs with waxing of the eyebrows ($10), chin ($7), or back ($30). A 30-minute pumpkin resurfacer ($45) smoothes, renews, and brightens the complexion without the embarrassment of taking an entire pie to the face. Students manipulate manes with everything from a basic cut and style ($12+), which comes with a five-minute stress-relieving scalp treatment, to a perm ($30+) or full highlight ($40+).
Elk's Lodge # 6 was built to accommodate both the needs of its membership and the surrounding community.

Cris Santa Croce and her team of all-female coaches at Kaia Fit Natomas believe that the best personal fitness results are achieved through teamwork. In other words, each athlete needs a network that emotionally supports her and keeps her accountable, whether she's performing a sweat-inducing gym workout or taking an outdoor run on a frosty morning. The coaches live up to this aim by leading a full-body workout designed "for women, by women." Due in part to its team focus and accessibility to all skill levels, the Kaia method has been praised in a number of media outlets, including The Fox 40 Morning Show.
The six-week BRIK boot camp forms the core of Kaia's fitness programs. Three times each year, its leader runs participants through a gauntlet of creative workouts in gymnastics, running, and weight-training, which she compliments with a seasonally focused meal plan. In between these sessions, the Core program combines cross-training workouts with yoga days and Saturday-morning runs in a local park. The I Kan Tri program, on the other hand, takes a more focused approach with triathlon training in which coaches guide their students through a circuit of cycling, swimming, and running, culminating in a sprint or full-length event.
