The exercise enthusiasts at Women’s World Fitness Center chase guests toward fitness goals with a posse of group workouts designed especially for women. With the help of an attentive teacher, Group Power students add muscle tone, subtract calories, and find the square root of pi through a series of squats and presses. Zumba and Cardio Salsa pair easy-to-follow moves with Latin rhythms to dance away stress. Up to 15 pedalers bolster their cardio health in music-fueled spinning sessions, and exercisers of all levels learn jabs, hooks, and empowering self-defense maneuvers in kickboxing classes. The gym also promotes sound minds to fill healthy bodies by offering Pilates, two types of yoga, and an atmosphere that fosters collaboration and encouragement rather than full-contact jumping-jack duels. Consult the schedule for class dates and times.
In 1999, Matthew Castaneda began developing exercise programs for his friends and family. As his reputation grew, so did his clientele base, which quickly expanded to include business professionals, athletes, and stay-at-home moms. More than a decade later, and with countless hours spent perfecting his craft, Matthew opened the doors to Pasadena Muscle Company in his hometown. There, he does what he's always done: engineer customized workout programs for people interested in building mass, losing weight, or gaining strength. In addition to one-on-one training, Matthew also offers boot-camp-style workouts conducted in small groups.

At JayVee Dance Center, children learn more than the techniques to impress audiences. As they master ballet, jazz, tap, and hip-hop moves, they also gain life-long values, such as self-esteem, discipline, and a sense of responsibility. The youth classes?catering to kids as young as age 2?include the staple sessions, but also branch out into unexpected disciplines such as Tahitian hula and break dance, which boldly breaks all the rules of the Hokey Pokey. The adult schedule is just as diverse, covering fitness-oriented areas such as Zumba, pole fitness, and [Streetease], which is a saucy combination of pole fitness, burlesque, and hip-hop.
