Running along a spinning rotisserie wheel provides endless cardiovascular exertion but gravies the soles of any tennis shoes.

People come to Fit for fitness freedom and admission into a fitness-inspired world of luxurious locker rooms, peaceful saunas, and an upscale environment peppered with cozy couches. Along with full access to all of Fit's workout facilities and machines, you get one of three choices: a one-on-one personal training session to custom-fit a workout for your individual fitness vessel, a body-stretching and body-toning pilates class, or a stress-emulsifying boxing class on Fit's row of tough punching, kicking, jabbing bags that never tussle back.
Fabric and food may seem different enough at first glance, but Searsucker proves that whimsical inspiration can come from many sources. According to San Diego Magazine, celebrity chef and former Top Chef competitor Brian Malarkey chose the name in honor of his seersucker suit, which is made of a lightweight fabric typically worn by the poor before being widely adopted. This lack of pretension heavily influences the eatery's approach to New American cuisine, which puts a spin on familiar staples by featuring items such as duck-fat fries with tomato jam, a cobb salad with pancetta in place of bacon, and corn "off the cob" with jalapeño and chorizo. The name's deliberate misspelling embraces this hint of experimentation, but it also echoes Chef Malarkey's commitment to seafood, which arrives daily from the waters surrounding San Diego. Albacore tuna emerges with a complement of prosciutto, basil, and balsamic vinegar, and drunken cherries and smoky almonds add distinctive flavors to baquetta bass. Seafood comprises a significant portion of the lunch and dinner menus, but it doesn't overshadow dishes such as the rib-eye steak flavored with cognac and horseradish, or the pulled-pork sandwich on ciabatta with brandy-spiked barbecue sauce and apple slaw. Even the decor embraces the same playful spirit as the menu. Thick loops of rope and warehouse-style light bulbs hang over some of the tables, creating inventive interpretations of traditional chandeliers. The exposed ductwork and brick walls mirror this industrial vibe, although there is a distinct coziness at the same time. The lounge section looks more like a living room than a waiting area, tempting patrons with sectional sofas, a wicker rocking chair, and stacks of old elementary-school report cards.
Dr. Nina Mojaver wants to make a trip to the dentist as convenient and stress free as possible. At GM Dental Arts, they keep themselves up to date with all fields of dentistry, ensuring they limit the amount of specialists and appointments needed. But staying abreast of multiple modalities doesn?t spread them thin; on the contrary, they were San Diego Magazine?s top pick for reconstructive, cosmetic, and general dentistry professionals in 2011. Further adding to the comfort of each visit are the offices themselves, which come equipped with TVs, plush blankets, and options for aromatherapy.
