As they enter the training circuit at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. Thirty seconds is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

The studio at CrossFit Sonoma County pulses with high-intensity workout routines. Led by coaches Sarah Pierce and Dan Schmieding, who both compete in national CrossFit events and hold multiple CrossFit certifications, students undergo varied exercises from the scheduled Workout of the Day. Sarah and Dan circumnavigate the floor, guiding movements, ensuring safety, and gingerly removing any unnoticed "Kick Me" signs pinned to T-shirts. Combining weightlifting, gymnastics, and track-and-field techniques, CrossFit aims to build resilience, strength, and versatility, equipping students with the stamina for athletic and everyday activities. Instructors scale each workout up or down to accommodate individual levels of fitness or exercisers recovering from restrictive injuries. Encompassing more than 3,000 square feet, CrossFit Sonoma County’s gym—nicknamed “the playground”—houses atypical equipment such as pommel horses, suspended rings, tires, sledgehammers, and weight sleds to facilitate each patron’s fitness goals.
Fusion Fitness’s 25,000-square-foot facility spans two floors of classrooms and workout equipment, ranging from free weights to TRX resistance-training equipment. This workout haven brings on four independent certified personal trainers, including Cal Poly State grad Sabrina Heintz. Sabrina’s credentials—from the American Council on Exercise and the Chek Institute—are indicative of the professionalism and authority boasted by all four trainers. Fusion Fitness’s 11 group class instructors, meanwhile, boast equal per capita certification, and they teach more than 160 classes a month, such as Zumba, Body Pump, and home ec. The gym also staffs tanning beds, which teach skin how to glow. The luxurious locker rooms, equipped with a steam room and sauna, then guide guests through the process of unwinding their muscles and minds.
Parkpoint Health Club has been a part of the Sonoma County landscape since 1983, when Bill and Lindy Buchanan opened their first health club in Santa Rosa. Over the last three decades, the club has earned its reputation with three locations, a diverse lineup of fitness equipment, a friendly and professional staff of trainers, and supplementary amenities such as massage therapy, facials, and nutritional counseling. Adults can get their sweat on in Pilates, yoga, cycling, and Zumba classes, and kids can enjoy after-school play in childcare while their parents work out.
