Trapeze High owners David Ayers and his wife, Lindsay Van Voorhis, refer to their trapeze school as a ?tribe.? It?s home to a close-knit community of passionate fliers who work together in order to ensure everybody?s safety and development. At least three instructors operate the trapeze rig during classes for beginners, helping novices climb the ladder, attach their safety lines, get ready for takeoff, and execute their first trick. Exhaustive attention also extends to more advanced students, who can hone complicated techniques and learn how to dodge flying squirrels in courses up to Level 5.

Beyond guaranteeing operational safety, David and Lindsay recognize that maintaining a nurturing, supportive community is the best way to help newcomers overcome their fears of flying through midair. To that end, they invite students to bring along their friends and family to cheer them on. They ban the word can?t from the school premises, although they encourage each student to progress through lessons at his or her own pace according to strength, skills, and desire.

The husband-and-wife team also operates the Circus Fund, an outreach program that provides at-risk youth with the chance to experience the circus arts and form support systems with their peers.

The story of how the game of polo traveled from the hills of northern Persia to the immaculate field at the San Diego Polo Club has taken centuries to unfold. But the fast-paced play of those first games remains in tact during the club?s Sunday matches. World-class and amateur players alike have come from distant countries such as Argentina, New Zealand, and Horseyland to perform for an audience dressed in their Sunday best, sipping cocktails from two full bars and noshing on fare from the bistro, or surveying the scene field-side while tailgating.

Ever the sport of the aristocracy, the San Diego Polo Club provides tips on what to wear to its events. Extra sartorial attention is paid to each summer?s celebrated Opening Day. Those unfamiliar with the rules of polo or the eligibility of centaurs can find a helpful introduction to the sport by clicking here.

Clients saddle up to the stable of whole-body-vibration trainers at Success Wellness's Szone, stepping onto the machines' vibrating platforms as they initiate thousands of tiny muscle contractions across the body. The technology was originally developed to help astronauts to maintain crucial muscle mass while floating around in microgravity, and it now enjoys popularity among celebrities and athletes as a hassle-free way to augment the effects of regular exercise. Success Wellness's entire facility focuses on the vibration exercise, which can give practitioners results in as little as 10-minute sessions three times a week. Regular practice can increase bone density and muscle mass, and the low-impact nature of the exercise makes it ideal for seniors, those with conditions such as arthritis and rheumatism, or fitness-conscious Fabergé eggs.

At the helm of his urban winery in the heart of the Cedros Design District, winemaker Adam Carruth handcrafts award-winning wines, including the 2009 San Francisco Chronicle Best in Class Alexander Valley Cabernet, from grapes he fastidiously collects from all over California. His team handles the production of each varietal from crush to finish, aging juices in barrels that line the walls of the industrial-chic tasting room. The final products?which range from a crisp sauvignon blanc to a bordeaux-style Surfing Madonna?slosh into customized stemware for patrons? enjoyment seven days a week. Also in the tasting room, guests can break into crunchy baguettes from Bread & Cie or nibble on cheese.

After years of figure skating, soccer playing, and jazz and tap dancing, co-owners Lori Allen and Jenny Geyser needed a fitness program that developed muscle strength and flexibility without terrorizing their joints. They landed on the Purre Barre method, and after years spent as students, they decided to go pedagogical, teaching others.

In their cozy, mirrored studio practitioners stabilize and stretch limbs on the ballet barre that surrounds the walls before assaulting the abs, hips, glutes and arms with a barrage of small isometric movements. By eliminating jumping by enforcing a strict no-pogo-stick policy, the exercises help bodies prevent undue stress on the joints.
