Downtown Fitness World’s trainers use the entire city as their gym, holding their private workout sessions on streets or in parks across beautiful San Diego. Thanks to the weather’s sunny disposition, they train clients year-round, putting together customized fitness regimens or teaching a specific skill, such as yoga or kettlebell lifting. For pure cardio exercise, they invite customers to join them on dog jogs, where humans and their dogs can experience the joys of good exercise, fresh air, and the sight of frightened pigeons together.
We Love Tourists saddles sightseers on segways to glide along San Diego's landmarks and La Jolla's coastal views. Prior to each adventure, the guides introduce explorers to the basic techniques needed to balance, steer, and outwit their futuristic rides. During the roll-about, the team of locals shares inside knowledge and embarrassing baby pictures of city landmarks while gliding past storied locales including San Diego Harbor, the Gaslamp Quarter, and PETCO Park. While trundling through La Jolla, adventurers discover a few of the seaside resort's most stunning surf spots and beaches, wildlife, shopping areas, and parks where segways can play with other two-wheeled pets.
Blue Marble Spa, located at the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay, takes its name from the famous "blue marble" picture of the earth, taken by Apollo 17. Potently demonstrating the unity of all life on earth, the picture inspires the spa's commitment to sustainable luxury, which earned it a nod from Organic Spa Magazine as one of 2011's top green spas. Nature-friendly practices include using all-organic beauty products and an innovative water system that minimizes hot-water-waste. Those wishing to more directly commune with nature can head over to the private earth garden or work out in the waterfront fitness center, where you can lift and tone by the shore.

At Sente Bella, beauty specialists help patients achieve their desired aesthetic with holistic and clinical therapies. Technicians diminish signs of aging with clinical injections and deploy lasers as emissaries of firmer skin and follicular death. Patients work with dieticians, acupuncturists, and massage therapists to balance their bodies, and watch 3-D modeling videos to envision surgical procedures that adjust their contours into beach-ready shapes or avant-garde compositions for museum display. Aromatherapy induces relaxation during traditional body treatments that polish every inch with scrubs, herbal tonics, and products from the organic, antioxidant-rich Eminence skincare line.
