  • The Art Studio
    Chi Chi Randolph has choreographed routines for hip-hop artists including Nelly and the Black Eyed Peas. Kari Lehman has 15 years of ballet training experience. Viviane Bressan turned her love of belly dance into a career, traversing the globe while teaching and performing the ancient art. At Dance Austin Studio, these three number among more than a dozen dance instructors whose dazzlingly diverse backgrounds enable an array of classes for everyone from preschoolers to grownups and fitness buffs to serious students of dance. Zumba combines fast-paced cardio choreography with dynamic Latin rhythms, and the 18-and-older Sexy Stiletto Fit class uses high heels to tone calves and build confidence. Students can choose to learn fundamental positions, steps, and vocabulary during structured ballet, lyrical, and jazz programs, or they can develop video-ready swagger during hip-hop classes. The studio’s sense of fun occasionally spills out into the community—it recently teamed up with the city’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management to spark a flash mob at city hall, held to raise awareness of emergency preparedness and help officials practice what to do if invaded by dancing aliens.

  • LA Stand-Ups
    An AT&T ad executive hangs up the phone, grabs his jacket, and heads toward the subway to Hell's Kitchen. It's the late '80s, and at the New York comedy institution The Improv, a slew of up-and-coming talent, including Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock, are testing jokes and honing timing. In the next few years, they'll perform on television for millions. But for now, they're changing the life of one ad executive. The founder of LA Stand-Ups, Joe Falzarano, quit his promising advertising career because he "hated being a suit" and preferred to nurture promising young comedians. With accomplishments that include producing the CableACE Award–winning Caroline's Comedy Hour for A&E, Falzarano helped launch the performing and writing careers of entertainers including Jon Stewart and Louis C.K. Today, Falzarano imparts his more than 20 years of industry experience to aspiring joke-tellers, teaching them tactics for perfecting a punch line, calming nerves, and subduing hecklers with a marshmallow gun. Falzarano maintains a supportive atmosphere where students learn how to use who they are to connect with an audience, and even lets students try out material at the Hollywood Improv.

  • 220 Fitness
    Matteo Baker didn't put ?220? in the name of his fitness center just to help people remember its street address. He did it to remind them of his goal for the center's services: to be ?second to none.? With body-bolstering services that range from personal training to chiropractic care to nutritional counseling, 220 Fitness and Wellness blends conventional gym practices with holistic wellness therapy to forge a multifaceted approach to health. While in one of three studios or out on the beach, guests can get hearts pumping in one of the center's group classes, including boot camp, cycling, and yoga, each of which take place frequently enough to let latecomers find a fun alternate class and early comers join in the previous class's naptime. When workouts are finished, the modern facility's licensed and certified health practitioners work to help guests recover from or prevent injuries with physical therapy, chiropractic care, and massage therapy.

  • Malibu LongBoards Surf School
    In 1999, Matt Rosas made a decision. He traded in his corporate career working in marketing for Fortune 500 businesses to share his passion for surfing, which he felt since making his first surfboard in seventh grade. Now the owner and head instructor of the Malibu LongBoards Surf School, Rosas has more than a decade of full-time teaching under his belt. His fellow instructors, Christian Andersen and Jerry Angel, have a combined 45 years of teaching experience between them. Together, they demonstrate how to glide atop waves during private and group standup paddling and surfing lessons. They have teaching permits for Santa Monica, Venice, Marina Del Rey, Los Angeles, Malibu, Ventura, and Santa Barbara, so students can surf the waves and mow the seaweed at an array of beaches. Alternatively, the trio also maintains a fleet of rental boards and the gear to go with them, so surfers can enjoy unassisted sessions on the water.

  • Boot Camp 'Morning Crunch'
    Fitness industry veteran Dulcinea Lee Hellings's goal is to bring a high-quality, effective exercise regimen to people who don't love big gyms or can't afford personal trainers. In 2004, she realized that mornings could be used for more than hitting the snooze button over and over for two hours, and founded Boot Camp "Morning Crunch!" to help fledgling exercisers whip into shape. She designs her all-levels programs to be scream-free morning motivators⎯the first stop in her patrons' journey of daily accomplishments. The fast-paced, ever-changing circuit of strength and cardio exercises keeps bodies guessing and minds from becoming bored. Each of the boot camp's 12 outdoor locations has a different dedicated trainer who gets to know each student personally, remembering their names and memorizing any interesting freckle patterns. They complement their morning routines with a smattering of evening options for those who prefer to work out after the day's activities.

  • YogaWorks
    Since the first YogaWorks opened in Santa Monica in 1987, a network of experienced yoga instructors have taught the ancient practice within the bright glow of a relaxing studio space. MyYogaWorks.com extends that network even further, allowing students to attend yoga classes within the comfort of their own homes or on the go via hundreds of streaming videos. It works like this: using their personal yoga props?including mats, blocks, straps, or blankets?students load up one of the instructors' videos on a desktop computer, smartphone, tablet, or laptop and settle in for a private yoga session catered entirely to their needs. There are classes for everyone?from beginners to aspiring teachers?and lessons range from 5 to 90 minutes long, which helps integrate a renewing exercise for body and soul into even the busiest schedules.
