The postcard beaches, incredible surf variety and one heck of menu of fitness classes... a quick scroll away.

And not now, of course, but once you've read through, head over to read Torie's food & travel guides in Vida Nourish & Vida Wander.




Torrey Pines Hike | La Jolla
Mouth-dropping ocean views.  Beach walking is included with this hike.  The weekends tend to be crowded, I suggest going during the week and start from the ocean side and hike upwards.

Convention Center Stairs | Gas Lamp
Booty blaster along with serious cardio if you run the stairs a couple times.  30 minutes and you're patting yourself on the back. There's a set in front and back.  Equal in quality, but the set in back will be less crowded. 



Spark Cycle | La Jolla
This is my favorite indoor spin studio in San Diego.  They take 'crazy' down a notch from trendy Soul Cycle.  The music is on point, you're riding to the beat to and under low lights.  Try Jenna,  she will leave you worked.

BodyRok | Carlsbad
For Muscle strengthening and toning, BodyRok is one near the top of my list.  My favorite instructor, Kristine (usually there Monday's and Friday's), even makes the regulars feel like they are tapping into new muscles every time.  Also, check out Kristine's half spin, half pilates, class.  We'll probably but into each other, its my weekly go to.
