Following the CrossFit ethos, Rocklin CrossFit designs high-intensity workouts that build strong, resilient bodies. Depending on their fitness level, participants may begin the muscle-manufacturing process with exercises that use only their body weight, such as squats, pushups, and tonguestands. As tone and technique improve, trainers tack on tonnage with the sonorous bells, dumb, and kettle bars, as well as plyometric boxes and medicine balls. Cardio blasters such as rowing, running, and rope jumping are also indigenous to workouts.
As a gymnastics coach, Kaia F.I.T. founder and owner Nikki Warren always noticed how children in motion tumble and play with ease. They were effortlessly agile and flexible, and yet many of them would grow into adults who would struggle to stay active. Kaia F.I.T. sprang from this realization with the goal of restoring female physiques to the adolescent pliability everyone enjoys before they grow their rock-hard exoskeleton after sixth grade. The expert coaches retrain bodies with dynamic workouts designed to strengthen muscles, boost energy, and vanquish fat. They root the sessions in functional training, a method that enlists athletes' own body weight and movement to stimulate fitness.

Since 1972, Spare Time Clubs has evolved into a 10-club, full-service family sports club company that includes programs for both adults and children. Each location varies in size—some boasting multiple complexes—and houses amenities such as lighted tennis courts, pools, kids’ play areas, and fitness centers.

In the event of inclement weather or courts being overrun by ball-chasing dogs, players can schedule time at the dedicated indoor-tennis center, where eight fully sectioned-off, championship courts glow under the power of tournament-level lighting. World-class coaches develop kids’ court skills at the junior tennis academy, students of which can practice with an unlimited number of sessions at any of Spare Time’s other clubs.
