  • Splash! Buccaneer Bay Waterpark
    At Splash! Buccaneer Bay Waterpark, the sun's rays sift through tall palms and glisten on explosions of water as families rocket out of twirly slides into the pool. After shooting out of those slides, they can grab a tube and head for the lazy river, then clamber over a marooned pirate ship surrounded by cannon walls and benches made from wharf planks. A skull rock keeps watch while some take respite from the heat beneath canopies resembling sails. To keep kids 48" and shorter giggling, there's a Spray Pad Zone with fountains to run through and cascades of water, a zero-depth beach, and dumping buckets. The adjacent 25-yard pool is open to all ages, giving guests ample room to play Marco Polo or a game of underwater chess. At the end of the day, everyone can refuel at the Big Backyard Grille. There, families dine on pizzas and burgers and keep cool with Hawaiian shaved ice. Splash! Buccaneer Bay Waterpark offers free parking, and life jackets and tubes are included at no extra charge.

  • Boot Camp H2O Los Angeles 137 N. Harper Ave.
    Boot Camp H20 is not your average water-fitness class. In fact, if it were possible to work up a sweat in a pool, this is where it would happen. Each fast-paced, high-intensity, waterlogged workout combines strength and cardio training to build muscle and burn fat quickly. Led by a qualified instructor, these challenging classes—which take place in an indoor pool—incorporate swimming strokes, water polo, modified plyometrics, water aerobics, and strength exercises.

    Founded in 1884, the YMCA of Greater Long Beach has been around longer than there's been a city of Long Beach.

In town, toddlers can attend childcare programs; kids can take martial arts and basketball lessons; teens can develop their leadership skills; adults can sign up for sports classes of their own; and the whole family can enjoy the pool.

  • H2yOga
    A passion for holistic health is in Sue Gisser?s blood. She is the daughter of a nutritionist, and even as a toddler she would go with her mother to yoga classes. She discovered a passion for teaching yoga when she moved to LA and woke up spiritually, but still she wanted more. This passion drove her to develop H2Yoga?a style of aquatic yoga informed by her extensive training in yoga, gymnastics, and physical theatre. H2Yoga uses dynamic sequences of traditional yoga poses in tandem with water weights and pool noodles to increase each student?s flexibility and fitness. The technique also takes advantage of water?s buoyancy, which reduces the pressure of gravity and facilitates participation for those with physical limitations. In the Lenny K. Swim Academy salt water heated therapy pool, Sue familiarizes students of all levels with her technique through seven class styles. Classes may focus on vinyasa-style yoga, bottom-toning workouts, synchronized breathing and movement, or strength training, which gives students the skills to guard an incarcerated dolphin.
