The 18-hole Reidy Creek Golf Course covers 2,582 yards in the rugged hills of Escondido, supplying guests with a scenic backdrop for club-based revelry. The rolling terrain of the par 54 course—intertwined with manmade obstacles such as sculpted bunkers, sinuous lakes, and wind—challenges golfers as they attempt holes-in-one. The distinctive course, designed by the notable engineers at Cal Olson Golf Architecture not to contain any two identical holes, contains a golf shop, café, and golf clinics taught by PGA professionals. ______________ Operating out of five courses throughout the greater San Diego area, JC Golf's Intro2Golf program fosters pin-hunting prowess with a shrewd blend of hands-on instruction, individual practice, and on-course experience designed to introduce the basics of golf to beginners. During the pressure-free sessions, JC Golf equips pupils with all the necessary equipment, saving neophytes the hassle of rustling up their own sets of clubs or graphite shaft bananas. Three additional buckets of range balls grant golfers the spherical tools necessary to implant newly learned concepts into muscle memory. The package also allows clubbers to loop the links at their chosen course twice after 4 p.m. for an additional $10 per round, allowing them to test their mettle amid the brambly hazards and sand-trap curmudgeons found on every real course.

As he trains his eye on the target's innermost ring, the archer retrieves an arrow from his quiver. He exhales, crooking his fingers around the bowstring and pulling it back until the feathery fletches tickle his cheek. He will only have one shot to win the contest and finally earn his family's respect—but his elbow is off, and his aim will suffer. "Cut!" comes the call from the director, and the cameras stop rolling for a moment as an archery coach enters the scene. She tilts the actor's arm and adjusts his stance so that his form is truer to life, breathing accuracy into the portrayal. When "Action!" sounds, the archer is ready, and the tension achieves new heights.

Sending its nationally certified coaches to such television clients as CSI: Miami and The Discovery Channel is just one way that Archery House spreads an appreciation of the sport. Company leaders Lorinda Cohen and Tara “Robey” Folz—both of whom hold national titles—ally their combined 36 years of archery experience with marketing savvy to plan classes for all ages, promotional events, and athletic counseling. At multiple outdoor ranges, they outfit beginners with the equipment and know-how to pop a balloon at an impressive remove, and challenge advanced archers to do so with a balloon that’s farther away and filled with wasps.

At Dream Body Boot Camp, which was voted San Diego A-List's best boot camp of 2012, trainer Matthew Johnson and his staff of specialized trainers help patrons to quickly sculpt physiques into top form during indoor and outdoor workouts that pair cardio moves with strength-boosting exercises. Instead of painting muscle ripples onto participants’ abs, each of Johnson’s instructors draws from a kinesiology degree or a national personal-training certification when designing a new 60-minute workout each day. Before their first class, students meet with Johnson to get acquainted and set their fitness goals, such as looking good in a bikini or ripping through a T-shirt to reveal their swimsuit with one powerful body flex. In the course of 10 minutes, he asks clients what they’d like to achieve in class and how they’ve pursued their goals in the past.

Once the talking ends, the training begins, and the motivational instructors put patrons to work hefting dumbbells, straining against Trx suspension gear, and flipping giant tires end over end. Johnson and his trainers leave long runs out of their workouts, opting instead for tire hopping, jumping rope, and other dynamic exercises to elevate heart rates.

Hapa Yoga takes its name from a Hawaiian term for a blend of Asian and European heritage, fitting for a studio that prides itself on an all-inclusive embrace of multiple yoga traditions performed in the welcoming aloha spirit. The team of certified instructors arrived at its yoga mastery from many paths, from dealing with the stresses of military life and conditioning for amateur boxing matches to healing from serious injuries. The instructors now help their students work toward self-set wellness goals, including toning muscles through mat Pilates, Zumba, and TRX classes, sweating away unwanted fat during heated power-yoga sessions, preparing bodies for child-birth with prenatal yoga, or strengthening core groups with Vinyasa flow.?

In addition to adult yogis, kids master breathing exercises, tumbling feats, and new ways to reach countertop cookie jars during children?s yoga classes, or play with toys and read books at the onsite childcare facility. No matter their age, visitors feel the 2,700-square-foot space?s welcoming vibes as soon as they see the glittering lights bouncing off the studio?s cool greens and grays.

Since 1925, shrieks of delight have sounded from the pinnacle of Belmont Park's Giant Dipper Roller Coaster as it inches toward its 73-foot drop. Closer to the ground, the Vertical Plunge drops riders three stories, the Tilt-A-Whirl spins at a furious clip, and the carousel makes its leisurely rounds. Like the waves breaking on the shores of Mission Beach—located just steps from the park—sheet waves generated by FlowRider and FlowBarrel technology carry boarders across a wave pool's padded surface.

No waves find their way into Belmont Park's indoor swimming pool, the Plunge, where an artificial grass deck surrounding the shallow end hosts a bounce house and Slip ‘N Slide. An adjacent arcade returns players to civilization with new and old classics such as Guitar Hero and skeeball. In between rides and games, guests take breaks to snack at Belmont Park's myriad boardwalk eateries or browse the goods of nearby shops.

At Namaste Pacific Yoga, seasoned instructors dissolve stress and its symptoms with a relaxing blend of stretches, exhalations, and meditation. The studio specializes in Ashtanga Vinyasa instruction, which weaves ancient poses and deep breaths into a flowing sequence that cultivates strength, flexibility, and stress relief. Some routines also feature focusing exercises, which clear the mind of panic-inducing thoughts, such as a giraffe nabbing your diary from your second-story window. In addition to sharing personalized tips during group classes, teachers lead one-on-one yoga sessions to customize students' practices as they perfect their technique and alignment. After class, students may steam away any lingering tension in the studio's showers.

In addition to bolstering bodies with holistic exercise, studio owner Chris van der Merwe fortifies them with a stockade of vitamins, probiotics, and other nutritional supplements. His nutrition boot camps teach attendees how to boost energy by eating healthy meals that eschew pizza-wrapped candy bars stuffed with pizza-wrapped candy bars.
