For some people, health and luxury are wishes to make on the future. But at The Big C Athletic Club, they happen to be the main draws all the time. Once inside, you pass the multilevel grand lobby and 75,000 square feet of weights, cardio machines, fitness classes, and sports courts open before you. After conquering workouts or group fitness classes, a dip in the temperature-controlled pool or the healing mist of the sauna soothes worn muscles. The facility's own Big C Grille offers healthy bites post-workout to replenish the body's all-important protein levels and angel-hair pasta enzymes. Even when members aren't working out, the club strives most of all to keep them happy: extra amenities such as massage therapy and a hair salon offer conveniences that help you leave both looking and feeling good.
Practice makes perfect—but the best practice comes from expert advice. Luckily, the coaching staff and players at Saint Mary's College Baseball Camps are up to the task. Helmed by Saint Mary's Gaels head coach Eric Valenzuela—who helped turn the Gaels into a winning team in just his second season in his position—the team helps aspiring players hone their skills in all aspects of the game.
After splitting players ages 4–18 into groups based on their age and ability, instructors teach youngsters the fundamentals infused with fun and elevate older players' game with more advanced skills, such as stealing home or willing foul balls into fair territory with telekinesis. The Gaels welcome girls onto the field for camps, too—allowing every kid to envision blasting a 400-foot home run across the picturesque Louis Guisto Field.
