Q&A with Kim, General Manager/Owner

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

We have a smaller membership so that gives us the ability to know everyone's goals and we follow up and call our members to make sure they are doing well to reach their goals. We offer customized personal training for each individual member.

What's the most radical physical transformation you've seen a client make?

We have multiple members who have lost more than 100 pounds. But it's also great to see the confidence and swagger members have once they lose the first 10 pounds.

Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?

We offer yoga, Zumba, boot camps, and one-on-one personal training.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We are a special club. We truly want our members to use the club and reach their fitness goals. We also trust every member with a key so they can workout 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in over 1,500 Snap Fitness centers throughout North America.

Pump It Up's indoor inflatable arena bounces socked striplings high off the ground with a plethora of kid-friendly bounce pads. Trained, amiable staffers supervise fun-filled visits where parents can leap around with their kids through gargantuan, air-filled bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an air-filled obstacle course. Attendees can also focus their free play for special events, such as custom birthday parties and themed, private team parties. These themed soirees immerse children in a schedule of interactive activities befitting a pirate or a superhero while melting off youthful energy faster than ice cubes thrown into a running DVD player. The giant arena is climate-controlled and maintained according to rigorous guidelines enforced by the well-trained staff and local police. Supplementing its thorough rule enforcement with expert installation and anchoring, Pump It Up holds itself to strict safety standards.

"I consider sacred the bond of trust that develops over time with our athletes, forged by sound direction, collaboration, and real, lasting results," says Erik Preston, owner and head trainer at CrossFit San Elijo. The ex-Marine recruited a team of instructors who work to forge a sense of community among its members through rigorous shared effort of their group workouts. Instructors teach athletes foundational movements during an initial class before embarking on daily workouts where they’ll hoist kettlebells, master gymnast’s rings, and walk with 45-pound weights. Every exercise is rigorously monitored, as instructors insist on proper form while students execute core exercises of squat, press, and lift. Along with emphasizing sound mechanics, instructors help copilot participants toward healthier eating habits and recovery techniques.

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.

Veteran ballet dancers Lauri-Michelle and Benjamin Houk run a duo of prominent dance academies designed to aid children in the pursuit of toe-tapping excellence. Five four-hour days of dance camp break up the drudgery of summertime like an ice-cream truck breaks up a cul-de-sac water-balloon fight. Jazz Contemporary Hip-Hop workshop and the Ballet Summer Intensive offer various age-specific seminars for young hoofers all the way up to older teens, and the Mary Poppins Musical Theater Camp trains the starry eyes and limbs of Broadway-bound 6- to 12-year-olds. The academies' Dancing Princesses camp teaches 4- to 6-year-olds how to gracefully sway with any glass footwear or beast dance partner.

While many go on to teach the game once their playing days are over, few golfers do so while continuing to tour professionally. Fred Hanover, on the other hand, does just that, and with exceptional results: he has been competing in Canadian Tour events since 1987 and has also served as a golf coach in the California State University system for more than 15 years, even winning the NCAA championship in 1997. Though he?s coached six All-American men and five All-American women over the course of his collegiate coaching career, Fred also gives lessons to beginning and intermediate players at The Golf Coach. Fred customizes lessons to the needs of each student, teaching them to hit the ball farther, straighter, and closer to the rude neighbor?s windshield. Additionally, lessons teach players the importance of course management and mental strength.
