Fitness That Works for Your Life

JCC Fitness Center

In San Francisco we can have it all, but not in one place. We work out à la carte, going one place for our yoga, another for our Pilates, and way over there for our much-needed massage. It’s a perfectly curated, but totally inconvenient (and super exhausting), fitness experience.

In another part of town, at the intersection of California and Presidio, locals are enjoying customized and convenient fitness in the comfort of community. They’re parking in an underground garage, dropping their children off at childcare, meeting their friends for a power-up smoothie at the onsite café and checking in to the JCCSF Fitness Center–a lifestyle gym that meets all their needs, all in one place.

Say Hello to Bay Area Bike Share

New York City launched a massive bike share program last month, and the whole city is a buzz with bike talk. The Wall Street Journal calls bike share the worst thing to happen to New York City, and part of a totalitarian takeover. But the general consensus from non-NIMBYs is that bike share is amazing, and the greatest transportation change since the subway was built.

New York isn’t the only city with bike share. It’s now in dozens of cities around the world, including a booming system in Paris and Mexico City. And there’s one coming to San Francisco as well.
