Catering to competitive athletes as well as casual enthusiasts, Peak Performance Fitness' instructors motivate visitors to bolster their quality of life and overall wellbeing with training regimens that address specific attributes. Their high-intensity routines are designed to improve agility, balance, or speed, although they can also adopt a broader approach. Circuit training and CrossFit workouts based on functional exercises each emphasize the importance of engaging muscle groups across the entire body. Similarly, the mixed martial arts and boxing classes incorporate practical skills into total-body workouts, developing strength and stamina while teaching attendees how to safely defend themselves and subdue sentient punching bags.
Though their workouts are tough, the trainers promote a friendly and noncompetitive atmosphere in which fit-seekers of any ability can get into shape. Further enriching their clients' wellness, they also offer nutritional guidelines.
Although the technicians at Advantage Bright specialize solely in teeth whitening, they have a hand in many different aspects of life. They believe that a bright smile can impact an event as important as a job interview, a wedding photo-shoot, or any first impression. Therefore, the staff's laser treatments aim to reduce stains on tooth surfaces for a notably whiter grin. The laser light activates a hydrogen peroxide gel, whose bleaching properties combat discoloration caused by tobacco, coffee, wine, and poorly applied mud masks. The procedure takes 60 minutes or less, and leaves teeth whiter for up to two years, though patients are welcome to return for touch-ups.
The instructors at Ace of Spades Boxing don’t just throw anybody into the ring. Their adult boxing program begins with four weeks of strength and conditioning training before the sport’s fundamentals—such as basic footwork and jabs—are even introduced. By week nine, teachers incorporate more advanced techniques, including combination punches and drills. After proving yourself with bag and mitt work, it’s time to step into the ring for full contact sparring sessions once or twice a week. Open to boxers of all skill levels, Ace of Spades not only hosts classes, but also offers weekly open gym times where patrons can refine their uppercuts.
A licensed aesthetician keeps patients in tip-top shape with wrinkle-reducing treatments such as microdermabrasion. The doctors perform a number of services, including Juvéderm, Radiesse, Botox, and weight-loss management. They also help curb appetites with medication-assisted diet programs and dispense nutritional supplements.
Harnessing yourself to a rope and rappelling into a canyon is challenging enough--but what if on the way down, you run into a waterfall? Since 1999, ATS AdventureWorks has prepared students for exactly this type of outdoor challenge, with courses in canyoneering, mountaineering, and rock climbing. Adventurers can also try their hand at these vertical sports on the company's indoor ropes courses, or on guided trips to rock formations and climbable celebrity homes throughout Southern California. The company's veteran team oversees every outing and class, keeping novices safe and sharing tips on gear and safety. And even when they're not working with students, they're navigating rough terrain and setting up specialty TV rigging for shows such The Amazing Race, The Bachelor, and The Biggest Loser.
