  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Hot 8 Yoga
    With top-of-the-line air purifying equipment and special floors, Hot 8 Yoga debunks the myth that hot-yoga studios are stuffy and smelly. Its filtration system scours air with UV rays before pumping oxygen into the classroom, keeping the studio fresh and germ-free, and students breathing easily. Beneath yogis' feet, ploy-extruded matting keeps the air smelling sweet by wicking away moisture and odors atop shock-absorbent PVC floors. These measures enhance pupils’ practice during more than 100 weekly hot-yoga classes. With the heat cranked at varying degrees to boost flexibility, metabolism, and detoxification, sessions range from classic hot yoga to yoga sculpt, which incorporates free weights. Yoga barre, on the other hand, combines ballet, yoga, body sculpting, and cardio for a comprehensive workout that makes you sweatier than wearing a vinyl spacesuit in a sauna.

  • Revolution Fitness Santa Monica
    Above all else, Revolution Fitness strives to create an encouraging, non-judgmental environment where individuals of all fitness levels can feel comfortable pursuing their goals. The instructors support this mission by leading eclectic group classes every day of the week. Strength-training sessions can incorporate kettlebells, TRX suspension systems, bands, stability balls, or helium-filled free weights depending on the intensity of the scheduled class. Spinning classes, meanwhile, get heart rates going as students pedal through a simulated series of hills and sprints, while dance-inspired barre workouts create long, lean muscles. Yoga practice ranges from the deep, sustained stretches of yin yoga to the dynamic, fluid movements of vinyasa-style yoga, and Revolution Fitness is also home to Indo-Row: indoor rowing classes that build teamwork skills while providing a full-body workout.
