  • Pasifika Fitness
    Sports played a vital role in coach Jaws Bulivou's childhood in Fiji, whether he was barreling down the rugby field, hefting heavy weights, or matching wits and muscles with opponents in Judo. After years of coaching volleyball for boys' and girls' clubs, as well as Olympic gold medalists, Bulivou discovered a new passion for fitness through cross-training. Rather than boring bodies with long bouts on the treadmill or marathon phone-book recitations, cross-training regimens keep participants fully engaged with randomized Workouts of the Day that emphasize building functional strength with high-intensity exercises. Today, at Jaws' gym Pasifika Fitness, students train and tone their sinews not only with gymnastics, plyometrics, rowing, and barbell-hoisting, but with a steady, careful attention to their nutrition.

  • Sacramento Running Association
    When they're not busy overseeing the world-class competition of the California International Marathon, the organizers at the Sacramento Running Association schedule a full slate of races for runners of all stripes. Apart from their marathon (a Boston qualifier that takes place annually on the second Sunday after Thanksgiving), SRA organizers pit runners against courses of various lengths and terrains, attracting everyone from cross-country enthusiasts to novices exploring their first 5Ks. Check out our breakdown of each race: Super Sunday Run: Football isn't the only thing happening on the first Sunday of February; during the signature 10K race, runners dash from the campus of Sacramento State University to the finish line at CSUS's Hornet Stadium. There's also a 5K race, a 1K run/walk, and a pee-wee 40-yard dash. Credit Union SACTown 10-mile run: The California State Capitol takes center stage during this vigorous springtime jaunt that begins and ends at the illustrious dome. The 10-mile run features a three-person relay, though individual runners can explore the solo 5K course. Gold Rush 50K: Runners test their endurance during this late-spring cross-country 50K that begins in Cronan Ranch Regional Park and follows the rugged, snaking miner's trails that cut across the Sierra foothills. The course promises "2,383 feet of elevation gain and 3,101 feet of descent," giving runners a challenge that's hard, but manageable as long as they prepare and ignore the miner's ghost promising a short cut.

  • Mad Mud Run
    Generally, adulthood forces people to give up childish pleasure, robbing them of the joy associated with playing in puddles, unearthing hidden treasure, and being silly in public. Sierra Adventure Sports wants grownups to regress, if only for a day. In service of that goal, the company organizes a variety of novel races that range from city scavenger hunts for the casual adventurer to creative triathlon courses for the ambitious athlete. Scavenger Blitz, for instance, turns exploring one's city into a fun, fast-paced race scattered with clues, obstacle courses, and riddles. Racers in teams of at least two scour the urban jungle in search of 12 clues, which can include challenges, riddles, or orders that need be completed before crossing the finish line. Some send racers hunting for a snapshot in front of a landmark, whereas others challenge them to complete some special feat, such as conquering an obstacle course on stilts. The Mad Mud Run challenges participants to sprint and frolic through a dirty and deliciously fun outdoor obstacle course littered with manmade obstructions such as cargo nets, hills of hay bales, monkey bars, and slimy mud pits. Extreme Heat Adventure Races combine equal parts triathlon and scavenger hunt to create a 10–12K journey filled with running, river rafting, and mystery challenges that could pit teams against anything from blindfolded puzzles to wall climbs. Most Sierra Adventure Sports events encourage racers to compete in costumes of all types save for gremlins, which multiply in water and unfairly dominate the timed results.

  • California Family Fitness
    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.

  • TMD Play 2 Survive
    In the horror films of the 1960s and '70s, zombies were represented as hordes of frightening—albeit sluggish—undead. These days, the typical zombie has a little more spring in his step. During zombie apocalypse–themed tag at Play2Survive, the undead chase after humans who seek shelter at several designated checkpoints. Fortunately, the zombies are only fellow participants, who "infect" the living by tagging them. Meanwhile, racers who retain their humanity must reach a minimum of five checkpoints scattered around the course before crossing the finish line. The first survivors in the team and solo categories to make it back to headquarters receive prizes. The top flesh-eaters among the zombies also get rewards, presumably including a spot as a backup moaner on some pop star's new album. The touring event is the brainchild of Project TMD, a group of friends who spent their college days scouring California for large-scale role-playing opportunities. Eager to share their passion for fitness and fun with others, the Project TMD crew now stages their own events across the state. The group also does its part to provide local high schools with resources for physical fitness and outdoor play. Project TMD encourages Play2Survive participants to sponsor a local high school of their choice. The school whose sponsors earn the most points receives a portion of the event's proceeds—as does the parks and recreation district hosting the game.
