Fit From The Ground Up’s stripped-down approach to fitness is best exemplified by its boot-camp classes, which rely on body-weight exercises, sprinting, and basic tools such as pull-up bars, heavy ropes, and oversize tires. The theme carries over to other classes as well, whether muay thai, kickboxing, yoga, or Zumba. To keep things engaging, the staff regularly adds classes based on exercisers’ wants.
Julia Dean boasts a long and storied career as both a photographer and educator. Her resume includes working as the photo editor for the Associated Press and traveling to more than 40 countries as a freelance photographer for relief groups and magazines. And her vast amount of experience fed into a career in teaching photography at colleges and universities for 30 years. Most recently, her photographic fascinations led to her shoot street photography around the world—particularly in LA—a passion which inspired her to create the Los Angeles Center of Photography.
Inside the 501(c)3 non-profit organization, she and more than 80 experienced and dedicated instructors support photographic arts at the helm of dozens of photography classes. Aside from high-caliber classes, they also provide local and travel workshops, exhibitions, screenings, and lectures. LACP also gives back to their local community by heading outreach efforts to put grants, scholarships, and focused programming in the hands of youth and low-income families.
When other kids played in the street, imagining lives as astronauts or cops, Leslie McKenna played in the kitchen, already a chef in her heart. Her childhood passion persisted, earning her a degree in Culinary Arts from Johnson & Wales University, praise in the pages of Bon Appétit for her pastas and desserts, and a job as Bob Hope’s private chef. In 2005, she decided to share her love with a new generation of aspiring culinary artists, so she founded Chefs, Inc. as a place to learn, cook, and have fun.
Today, her school hosts a wide array of cooking classes, when it isn’t occupied as a film set by shows such as Millionaire Matchmaker. The classes range from Julia Child’s classic French recipes to a dipping-sauce course focusing on grilled and fried eats slathered in custom condiments. She even teaches a knife-skills class, preparing students to slice and dice food like a professional, quickly chopping money or deftly cracking the fruit of the money tree to reveal the paycheck inside.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. Camps and after-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
