All About Scuba's instructors fill noggins with the know-how—and muscles with the memory—required to explore the briny deep. Introductory Try Scuba sessions outfit fledgling divers with all the accouterments and instructions they need for their maiden voyages. Over the course of 30 to 45 minutes, students learn how to wield scuba tanks, masks, and fins while kicking around a swimming pool or flopping around on the concrete deck.
In a perfect world, it wouldn’t be difficult to find time for a massage or an aesthetician you trust. The team at Solano Wellness Spa have been listening to those needs from their clients for more than 10 years, all the while making their services an accessible part of self-care and winding down. With an accomplished staff of registered massage therapists and certified aestheticians, each treatment gets down to the clients’ specific goals, whether they seek to hydrate skin, diminish fine lines, wax brows, or soothe backs.
Dr. Ronald T. Weiland doesn’t “believe in fad diets,” as he notes on his website. Rather, he trusts in simple mathematics: fewer ingested calories plus more burned calories equals weight loss. At Ameri-Cal Weight Clinic, he and his staff put this equation into practice during comprehensive weight-loss programs that rely on healthful foods, aerobic exercise, and prescribed appetite suppressants. This mix of support, services, and tools is readily available at eight clinic locations throughout the Bay Area and one that only appears on leap years.
Anheuser-Busch's Beermaster Tour regales guests with an edifying excursion behind the scenes of the brewery's charming, picturesque facilities. View secretive master sudsmiths as they frolic in their natural brewhouse habitat, and savor the hearty bouquet of the hop room, which brims with the scents of the powerful flowers. The fermentation cellar and packaging facility reveal the early stages of a magical life cycle, similar to watching a nest of panda eggs hatch. At tour’s end, guests can soothe their flabbergasted faces with a sample directly from the finishing tank before receiving souvenirs and keepsakes. Brimming with an immense array of seasonal and newfangled brews, the hospitality room showcases Anheuser-Busch's frothy masterpieces, poured out by the brewery's famously intelligent clydesdales. Summer tours take place Monday through Saturday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. (with an additional 12 p.m. tour on Saturday). Winter tours take place Tuesday through Saturday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
House of Élan offers revitalizing body treatments for existing humans and personalized hair-removal options for men and women. Dr. John Verstraete and his team of whisker-erasers employ elos technology to clear bodily brush without resorting to wax or wildfires. Over the course of six sessions, strand assassins will harness bi-polar radio frequencies and light energies to precisely target unwanted keratin and foil follicular invasions, systematically weakening woolen defenses with each treatment. Elos is purported to be effective in the eradication of lighter-colored hair on skin of most shades, hues, and tartan plaid patterns.
Jump Highway is constantly in motion. The "trampoline sports arena" is filled with more than 10,000 square feet of nearly custom-built, steel-frame trampolines that cover the floor and climb partway up the walls. Here, visitors of all ages bound across the room and into foam pits large enough for use by professional gymnastics teams or a giant's naptime. In addition to freestyle jumping sessions, the center also hosts group dodgeball and basketball tournaments. The gym's Airobics class treats the trampolines as a whimsical track and field during its cardio-focused, low-impact, and low-gravity workouts.
Each piece of equipment is carefully inspected each day and the staff regulates the number of jumpers to prevent overcrowding. They also monitor the different trampoline zones, which include a separate jumping area just for smaller children. When guests are ready for the world to stop shaking, a cafe and on-site lounge feature leather furnishings and wireless internet.
