GROOV3 founder, Benjamin Allen, seems drawn to dance floors. At the school parties and bat mitzvahs of his youth, he was always showcasing his moves. Though he earned a degree in business and communication from Arizona State University, the call of the dance floor proved stronger than that of the corporate world. Soon after graduation, Benjamin moved to Los Angeles to devote fully himself to the art of the groove in numerous TV commercials, musicals, sitcoms, and stage performances. Benjamin shares his passion for dance with students at GROOV3 during non-competitive cardio-dance classes. GROOV3's fleet of experienced instructors and live DJs attempt to build a community of like-minded dancers and share their commitment to fun-filled calorie burning in a relaxed atmosphere. Classes help students of all fitness levels kick-start their hearts and torch a few calories with energetic dance experiences that tone up muscles along the way.

Salle D’Asaro Fencing Club head coach Michael D’Asaro Jr. trains his students for success, preparing many former students to compete on NCAA fencing teams at the top colleges and universities. He helps them achieve this goal by demanding a high level of dedication—the same kind of dedication he has put into his own career. The son of legendary fencer and club founder Michael D’Asaro Sr., D’Asaro spent his youth swiftly ascending to the 1996 U.S. Olympic men’s saber team. He now coaches in foil, épée, and saber techniques, leading group lessons replete with drills and practice bouts as well as private sessions ideal for getting more one-on-one guidance.

Since 2000, Tim and Tom Ryan, twin brothers and the founders of Atomic Boxing, have put their black belts to use and help patrons harness the health benefits of martial arts without the violent aspects of the sport. Fists and feet pop against personal punching bags as personal instructiors motivate students to burn fat and pump up endurance. To set the mood for muscle building and to bolster adrenaline, speakers fill the gym with driving beats or fighter pilots reading their to-do lists. Near the punching bags, free weights clatter at benches and machines target muscle groups. In addition to group sessions, instructors host one-on-one workouts.

Palos Verdes Bowl has been open for more than half a century, but just because it's reached middle age doesn't mean it lacks modern amenities. On Wednesday and Saturday evenings, the alley's karaoke hours turn civilians into celebs as they rock out and star in music videos in front of a greenscreen. The stage also plays host to professional musicians on Thursdays and Fridays. Throughout the week, bowlers can take a break to engage in winner-takes-all conversation over sliders, wings, and pizza from the onsite cafe, Maxine's, or a tall brew from the onsite bar.
