The Art of Giving

It’s finally here. You’ve been practicing for this since Jan 2, 2016. You’ve got this. You have mastered the look. That look. That look that says, Why, thank you so much, I absolutely love this gift! We’ve all been there… The (hopefully) well-meaning gifter has blown the opportunity or maybe forgotten who they were giving the gift to. […]

Brett & Kera Murphy’s State of Affairs, December

Dear Valued Members, Our new bikes are finally in, and members are raving about them. These bikes have many bells and whistles, so we’re offering special workshops to maximize everyone’s understanding of their potential. In the next few months, we’ll incorporate a new console (and app!!!) for the bikes to track your workouts! For the non-cyclists, Studio 1 just got a lot bigger […]

Straight Cold Chillin’

Ah, San Diego, home of the scarf in 66 degree weather. Above or below that perfect 76 degrees–THAT WE WERE ALL PROMISED WHEN WE MOVED HERE–and it’s ‘Remember back in 2009 when we had that perfect year of weather?’ or ‘I swear, if this happens again, I’m moving back to Kentucky.’ Hahahahaha, kidding, no one […]

We are lucky that you care as much about the facility as we do, and we appreciate your feedback as […]

Twenty of your favorite La Jolla restaurants got together to help raise funds for La Jolla High School (go, Vikings!). These things aren’t easy to put together, so a big congrats to LJSC’s own Julie Manriquez for all […]

Save the Women

It’s week three of Helptober (admittedly the worst theme month name we could’ve come up with), and we have a special spotlight on one of our members, her battle with breast cancer, her survivor-inspired swimsuit company and her new fight: defying metastatic breast cancer with her Save the Women campaign. But first… Our very own La Jolla Sports Club Personal Trainer, […]

We kicked around puns for the idea of ‘October’ + ‘charity’ or ‘helping,’ but couldn’t think of anything, so now you just get this: Helptober. Which sounds a bit like you reeeeeeeeeally like Hamburger Helper in the month of October. But what’re you going to do, you know? Regardless, this month, we’re shedding a little […]
