A Signature Spa provides a soothing boutique setting for pampering, beautification, and evading warrant-toting posses. Each Stress Melt Away package begins by treating pool propellers to a hot stone foot soak with eucalyptus while their owners knock back a complimentary beverage and light snack. Next, a potent combo of steam room and infrared sauna detoxes the body of such common poisons as poison, while a Swiss shower cleanses the corpus in a neutral, conflict-eluding locale. An application of cocoa-butter body moisturizer turns your dry skin's desert into a skin dessert, giving it the smoothness and sweet flavor of a relaxed, spreadable concoction that pairs well with toasted bread. A Signature Spa's technicians will then get the cranium tingling with the sweet smells of a peppermint scalp massage. The entire two-hour relaxathon wraps up with a 50-minute full-body massage that leaves you feeling as loose and limber as a spider monkey after yoga class.
Sprinting seemingly endlessly on a treadmill, daydreaming while pedaling a stationary bicycle, or using the same weight machines continually are activities that frequently plague most exercisers. None of these dull scenarios exist at CrossFit Santa Barbara, a fitness program that harnesses a different workout each day to blast participants with strength training and conditioning. Here, participants rotate through circuits, moving objects such as tires or small buildings before lifting weights and executing gymnastics movements, all of which result in increased endurance, agility, and strength.
