Inland Empire Boot Camp’s squad of experienced instructors eschews the ear-scarring screams of traditional boot camps in favor of rigorous motivation, individually tailoring every exercise to achieve sustainable results for students. Like the temperaments of salsa dancers, the boot camp’s intensity levels split into mild, medium, and hot categories to ensure every participant gets a vigorous but doable workout. The outdoor program mixes up activities for constantly shifting sessions, which divide time between exercises such as toning core muscles with planks and lunges and raising heart rates with jogging and calisthenics. Campers rotate through interval-based resistance and cardio training, aiming to stoke metabolic fires into searing calories. Inland Empire Boot Camp's schedule of both coed and women-only classes lets participants control their comfort levels, and the flexible schedule accommodates those who need extra time to get their werewolf or nongroggy daytime-werewolf symptoms under control. Inland Empire Boot Camp also offers grocery shopping classes, which escort students through the aisles, teaching them what to look for on food labels and how to decide between frozen or fresh, butter or margarine, and ketchup or catsup.
In 1976, Joan Barnes—a Californian mom frustrated with the lack of spaces where she could take her kids for safe and age-appropriate play time—took matters into her own hands and founded Gymboree Play & Music. In the decades since Gymboree’s founding, Joan’s vision of a safe place where youngsters could build confidence and creativity has come to fruition and spread to 30 countries around the globe. Staffed by attentive and expertly trained instructors, each Gymboree outpost adheres to a curriculum of activities designed by experts to foster the development of children’s’ cognitive, physical, and social skills through structured play and close readings of Goodnight Moon. The staffers also conduct entertaining classes that cover subjects ranging from music to sports, imparting valuable lessons of imagination and physical activity to developing minds. To further set apart her business, Barnes employed nationally renowned playground designer Jay Beck to design the proprietary play equipment at her centers.
