Performance 360 Gym Keeps It Real

Fitness
Strength Training


When it comes to boutique fitness studios, San Diego has its pick. But if an immersive experience complete with heart-pounding music, dim lighting, and an instructor shouting over a microphone isn’t your style, we’ve got you.  
 
Introducing Performance360, a local strength training gym that understands you don’t need all the bells and whistles to get in a solid sweat.  

Advance Forward  

At Performance360, it’s not about breaking you down, it’s about building a supportive community of like-minded people and giving them the tools to be their best selves. Known for a no-frills approach to working out, this garage-style gym has some of the smartest programming in the game — all you have to do is show up and work hard. 
 
Similar to a WOD, their daily training program, Progressive Strength & Conditioning (PSC), features intentional and structured movements meant to help you build strength and endurance, and improve your overall mental and physical toughness.  
 
But don’t worry — you’ll know what you’re getting into beforehand. Workouts are planned a week in advance and posted online, so you’ll be ready to crush whatever they have in mind, whether that’s endless burpees and battle ropes or a full-body kettlebell session. Plus, certain days of the week are focused on a specific movement, lift, or challenge, and are repeated throughout the month, making it incredibly easy to track progress.  
 
P360 also peppers in classes like Muscle, FIT, and yoga into their weekly schedule, so there’s always an opportunity to try out something new. What could be barbells one day could be cardio training the next! 
 
And while class sizes are typically around 25-30 people, the coaches are so on top of it that members receive plenty of individual attention. If you want to do your own thing, they get it — just come to open gym on the weekends for access to all of their equipment and some extra coaching. 

#BecomeMore

In addition to offering top-tier programming, what sets Performance360 apart is its commitment to providing an inclusive environment for its members. Whether you’re looking to improve your mile time, be more active, or just get stronger, you’ll feel welcome and empowered to start crushing your fitness goals.  
 
Ready to see what makes this sweat squad a step above the rest? Check out one of their four San Diego locations in Pacific Beach, Crown Point, and Bay Park. Oh, and be sure to stay connected to the tribe throughout the day via P360’s Instagram stories (they often feature members).

Black-owned Beauty and Wellness Businesses to Know

February is Black History Month—a celebration of the achievements and contributions of African Americans in society.  As the beauty and wellness industry becomes a more welcoming and inclusive space for all, we are taking this opportunity to continue to shine a light on the gap of inclusivity and diversity in our industry, and take action to promote, empower, and honor the Black community that shapes and grows wellness.  

While the beauty industry is making improvements—it's important to showcase and support Black businesses and the creatives in this space every day. To honor them, we're shouting out some of our favorite Black-owned beauty and wellness businesses to support. 

1. Beauty Bin 

Beauty Bin is a full-service day spa and dry bar located in Asheville, NC. With a focus on inclusivity for people of all backgrounds, genders, and races, their MO is to match the outer beauty of every client to their inner beauty. From eyelash extensions and hydrafacials to waxing and massage, Beauty Bin is a one-stop-shop for all the spa services.  
 

2. KIKA Stretch Studio  

The KIKA Method® is a gentle assisted stretching process that loosens up tight muscles freeing your body from pain and stress. By practicing this method, clients can experience decreased muscle tension, increased energy, enhanced flexibility, a substantial reduction in stress, improved posture and relaxation, and increased mental clarity. While its headquarters is located in Las Vegas, NV, they have multiple locations sprinkled throughout the US, including Atlanta, New York City, and Dallas—just to name a few.

3. Kimberly Coleman Salon 

At Kimberly Coleman Salon, their philosophy begins with promoting healthy tresses, elegant sets, unique accouterments, perfect pampering of hands and feet, and precision cuts. Known for working with models and celebrities, they fully appreciate and celebrate the diversity of their clientele which also includes super moms and warrior dads. 

4. Pressed Roots 

Pressed Roots was developed with the simple concept in mind—that everyone deserves access to easy, and quality hair care. What started as a single pop-up shop in Boston, grew to a multi-city pop-up tour, and is now slated to be the largest national hair salon franchise specializing in the care and styling of highly textured hair, they launched their first flagship location in Dallas, TX.  

5. SW3AT  

Jersey City resident, Alyza Brevard-Rodriguez started SW3AT. The company began as a fitness apparel line in 2015 but evolved into a sanctuary catered to health and wellness now known as SW3AT Sauna Studio—the first infrared sauna studio in Jersey City. The healing power of infrared heat therapy is a phenomenal option for holistic health proven to strengthen the immune system and provide relief from joint stiffness and muscle pain. It is also supportive of any fitness program as it aids in weight loss (you can torch up to 900 calories in a 45-minute session) while also detoxifying your body from some of the most harmful toxins. 

6. The TEN Nail Bar 

Kelli Coleman and Anika Jackson opened The TEN Nail Bar in Detroit to address a void in their city. They saw a need for a quality, modern nail bar that could also serve as a fun social space for Detroit’s residents and professionals. They designed the TEN to provide their clients with a #Perfect10 experience—where you can relax, enjoy music, a drink, your friends, a clean and precise manicure, and a much-needed break from all your hectic days. 

7. Bettye O Day Spa 

Located in the beautiful downtown Hyde Park Chicago area, Bettye O Day Spa specializes in first-class treatments. They aim to nurture and relax each of their clients with individualized and innovative therapeutic techniques. From body wraps and massages to facials and hydrotherapy, this day spa promises to be a safe place for healing to occur.
