When Cliff Hodges, the founder and CEO of Adventure Out, graduated from MIT with a degree in electrical engineering, he knew a traditional desk job wasn't for him. According to Technology Review, he quickly gave up his engineering career for the wireless world of the great outdoors, where he began to hike, climb, and surf his way around the world, always staying true to his philosophy of environmental respect and protection.

His travels and business accomplishments have gained some measure of notoriety; he's coached on MTV's Made, consulted for ABC News, and was selected as one of four winners of the 2011 Santa Cruz County Civic Service Award: The Nextie. Adventure Out was also identified for meeting survival skills training standards by The New York Times best-selling author Tim Ferriss in The 4-Hour Chef.

Today, he and his program consultant Tom McElroy lead excursions into the California wilderness to teach backpacking and survival skills, including the tracking of animals and wild ice-cream trucks, and they also guide novices through surfing, rock-climbing, and mountain-biking sojourns. Through fundraising, Adventure Out has helped save Castle Rock State Park from closure and a portion of their proceeds is put directly back into the park.

Bee venom doesn't sound like a medicinal substance, but to alternative practitioners such as licensed acupuncturist Tamara Wolfson, it's a cocktail of healing compounds. Going back as early as at least 3,000 BC, ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Chinese doctors used the venom—known as apitherapy—along with honey, royal jelly, pollen, and beeswax to treat ailments that ranged from arthritis to multiple sclerosis. Today, the method of using bee venom is sometimes called "nature's Botox" and has even earned attention from mainstream publications such as Allure magazine. Practicing inside Living Medicines Holistic Center, Tamara integrates various hive-sourced substances into her therapies, which include community and private acupuncture, diet consultations, and herb therapy. She also posts resources for clients to use at home, such as tips for creating a holistic medicine cabinet or an entirely edible fort.

As Ross Valley CrossFit states on their website, they’re focused on creating a workout that’s “productive, not destructive.” That said, the CrossFit system is intense, and the trainers push their students to the limit during daily workouts populated with a variety of challenging but functional movements and exercises. Through the use of intuitive movements such as pushing, running, and pressing, they prepare class participants for anything the day can throw at them, from hauling groceries to fireman-carrying a large person, running a marathon, or climbing a mountain. They mix up routines each day to keep things interesting; students may perform pushups and deadlifts one session before swinging kettlebells and running sprints the next. Paired with nutritional advice, workouts help those of all ages and fitness levels slim down, enhance agility and flexibility, and build brawn across all muscle groups.

Dirt bikes kick up plumes of dust in their wake, fishing boats search for prize catches atop Millerton Lake, and three-person jet skis drag race mermen along Shaver Lake's tree-lined waters. Though unfolding at different locations, these events have one thing in common: they're all supported by A1 Recreation's fleet of watercraft and recreational vehicles.

A1 Recreation serves as an epicenter for outdoor adventure, with locations that skirt Yosemite National Park and equipment rentals of up to multiple days that outfit customers with everything from pontoon boats to on-land hovercrafts. The company's dedicated staff members can also deliver chosen rentals to nearby recreation sites and load them onto patrons' trailers.

At Sol Studios Fairfax, co-owners Teya Valentina Chavez and Chris Krotky combine forces to create a culturally rich studio. Chavez, a yoga practitioner of 20 years, heads the instruction of the studio's multi-level Vinyasa yoga classes, which are staged in both heated and non-heated rooms. Other yoga classes include Valentina core fusion, which integrates weights to build core abdominal muscles, Valentina dance method, a high-energy class that incorporates various dance techniques from throughout the world, and yin yoga, which uses deep stretches to challenge yogis of all skill levels. Krotky––a drummer, composer, and music producer––oversees the studio's monthly lectures and performances and creates the soundtracks for the yoga classes.
