A sense of fun and excitement builds the moment kids arrive at Fitness by the Sea, where the experienced and dedicated staff (average age of 28) schedules a daily rotating lineup of more than 80 activities for campers ages 4?14, all in a beautiful beachside setting called "the safest beach camp I have ever seen" by the Chief of LA County Lifeguards.
Youngsters can choose to to swim, go surfing, play soccer, make arts and crafts, or even put on a magic show, no highly trained rabbits required. The staff members aren't passive observers, either; they join in on the activities to foster a positive, supportive atmosphere.
What makes it great: four floors of fitness equipment, 100+ group fitness classes, luxurious locker rooms with cherry-wood accents and complementary Kiehls products and chilled eucalyptus towels, and outdoor terraces that provide ocean views
Many gyms feel industrial, but with bright hardwood flooring and cream-colored walls, Tenacity Women?s Fitness is a breath of fresh air. The staff?s mission is to differ from chain gyms by being a positive place where women feel welcomed into a friendly, more personal environment, but still have everything they need to reach their goals. They?ve stocked the gym with strength and cardio machines, as well as functional training tools including BOSU balls, resistance bands, and more. Circuit Training classes help groups jump-start their fitness regimens, and personal trainers design programs tailored toward their clients? individual goals and incorporate nutritional advice.
After their workouts, ladies can hit a locker room that?s outfitted with a plasma TV, hair-dryers, and other amenities in addition to the standard showers and lockers that double as portals to fantasy realms.
The Water Wellness Center?s staff is more than willing to help educate you in the benefits of drinking Alkaline, Micro-Clustered, Anti-Oxidant water. We will also teach you how to have a healthy body, a healthy mind and a healthy financial opportunity
The Stronghold Climbing Gym is all about options?and, of course, climbing. The gym offers a slew of programs for beginners on through mountain goats, and even the 45'-tall roped climbing wall gives folks a choice of hundreds of routes. For example, the intro to climbing class introduces how to climb safely with a top-rope, and the lead climbing class teaches more advanced climbers how to climb and belay on the "sharp end" of the rope. Indoor adventurers can choose from rope climbing and bouldering, or jump into classes with instructors that help climbers keep their bodies in peak physical condition. Core-focused classes and yoga keep physiques limber, while other fun activities like slack-lining help to improve balance or a career as a double-dutch referee.
Classes are open to climbers of all ages, and even kids can boost their climbing skills and athleticism.
