Without gyms, people would resort to outdated fitness techniques such as swimming and pushing Model-Ts up slight inclines. Celebrate contemporary fitness with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a 30-day all-access family pass for up to five immediate family members (a $220 value) and four 20-minute swimming lessons for one person (an $80 value) at California Family Fitness (a $300 total value), valid at any of the 16 Sacramento-area locations. Swim lessons must be completed by Labor Day and are open to all ages at nine of the 16 locations: Natomas, Elk Grove, Folsom, Rocklin, Laguna, Arden, Orangevale, Citrus Heights, and Sunrise. Clans with more than five people must pay an additional $10 per family member. Couples who are not married must bring proof of shared residency when redeeming.
California Family Fitness helps guests of every shape and size get stronger, healthier, and fitter. An array of group classes range from Zumba, a cardio workout based on Latin dance, to calmer endeavors such as balance-boosting tai chi, which appeals to mindful meditators and tightrope walkers. Independent types can also take advantage of the gyms' full stocks of cardio and weight-training equipment. During private swim lessons, WSI professionals can help aquatic novices gain confidence and grow gills, while aiding experienced swimmers in improving their technique. Those unable to take advantage of the swim lessons by Labor Day can swap them for two personal-training sessions, where certified trainers work one-on-one with clients to design custom workout routines tailored to individual goals.
California Family Fitness supplies busy parents with on-site childcare and a Kidz Klub, boasting arts and crafts, interactive playscapes, team sports, and more to keep younger iron-pumpers engaged. Family yoga classes also encourage guardians to help progeny realize their dream of growing up to be the world's largest pretzel. After tough workouts, the spa, sauna, and steam room detoxify and rejuvenate tired limbs.

The press certainly likes California Family Fitness, granting the exercise venue such awards as Best Gym on KCRA-3's 2012 and 2014 A-List and Sacramento News and Review's Best of Sacramento 2012 Award. The press, however, isn't the top priority for the gym's staff; they believe that, to quote their about CFF page, “awards don't greet you at the door.” Instead, they depend upon their dedicated staffers at the front desk, chaperones at the Kidz Club play zone, and personal trainers to make families of clients feel at home. Certified personal trainers take aspiring exercisers of all ages through regimens that make use of the 18 available locations' ample workout machinery. Seasoned instructors, meanwhile, hold group fitness classes, free with a membership, fostering community as they incinerate calories during high-energy Zumba, step aerobics, Turbo Kick, and Hip Hop Hustle. Nine of the locations boast pools that host swim lessons taught by certified water-safety instructors.
While hitting the gym, parents can drop wee ones at childcare havens. After breaking a sweat on the exercise floor, clients can also shed excess body moisture in saunas and tanning beds.
