IT'S A FREEBIE!!!...Temecula's newest fitness sensation Sweat Cardio & Yoga offers FREE classes for kids ages 6-12 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2-3 p.m. For the next three Tuesdays (July 14, 21, and 28) Sweat teams up with Premier Martial Arts (formerly Xtreme Fit) to offer a martial arts-based class. Got younger kids? Sweat also offers Mommy & Me for kids ages 18 mos to 3 yrs. Check out their schedule of classes and complete details at their website and while you're browsing, check out the Premier Martial Arts site too. Premier is THE destination for krav maga for all ages in the Temecula Valley. Some of the fittest women I know in Temecula are big fans of "krav."
COOL DOWN, SUDS UP, AND IT'S FOR CHARITY...on Saturday, July 18, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Dogtopia (27629 Commerce Center Drive, 506-1200, www.dogdaycare.com/temecula) is having a charity dog wash to benefit the Murrieta Police Dept K9 unit.
