There are few things more breathtaking than the beauty of California’s expansive coastline, and no better way to see it than on a Bay Aerial Helicopter Tour. While I recommend you experience a helicopter tour with Bay Aerial first hand yourself – definitely check out this California Living’s Season 8 Half Moon Bay, CA travel special since that’s exactly what we’ve done to show you the sights and get an overview of “Princeton-By-The-Sea” – a phenominal getaway spot on the California’s Coast.

Now while the annual Mavericks Surf Competition is usually referred to as being in Half Moon Bay, CA – Mavericks is actually located in Princeton-By-The-Sea” – which was discovered by Big Wave Rider legend and Mavericks Surf Competition Founder Jeff Clark. We interview Jeff Clark at his Mavericks Surf Shop in this show and hear first hand about his unique story of how Mavericks all began. Then - we hit the beach with Clark for a Stand Up Paddle Board session on one of his handcrafted SUP’S and have just a ton of FUN!!!
In Food & Wine – we meet with Paul and Julie Shenkman Co-Owners of Sam’s Chowder House in Half Moon Bay, CA for the inside look at how Sam’s offers both great oceanfront views AND great food – a winning combination that’s hard to beat! We also spotlight the authentic Italian cuisine at Mezza Luna Restaurant in “Princeton by the Sea” – and to top off all the fun and excitement…
We check out the Oceano Hotel & Spa where I indulge in a decadent spa treatment reminiscent of Cleopatra’s famed beauty regimens – and of which I am sure if she were around today would be quite envious of…but I’m not going to give it all away here - you’ll just have to tune in:

To paraphrase Mavericks Surf Competition founder Jeff Clark, Mavericks is the “Super Bowl” of Big Wave Riding – wherein “the best surfers in the world are invited to take on the biggest waves on the planet “- which just happen to be in the Princeton by the Sea area of Half Moon Bay, CA. Jeff Clark discovered this “Everest of waves” and founded the Mavericks Surf Competition held annually at Mavericks.
I have never met a more passionate, genuine, and likable person as Jeff Clark – and we had a ton of FUN filming with him at his Mavericks Surf Shop in Half Moon Bay and riding with him on his hand crafted SUP”S - Stand Up Paddle Boards for this show.
What is Circuit Training?
Everyone complains about time these days – the lack of it, that is. Getting in shape and shedding pounds takes precious time, which can be at a premium.
Circuit Training may be just the answer. It’s defined as the execution of a selected number of exercises in a determined sequence and time.
Circuit Training provides a one-stop total-body exercise session, combining strength training and cardio in a single workout. It can reduce body weight and inches, burn fat, and build lean muscle. It can also improve your overall strength and endurance and add variety.
1. Always check with your doctor or health care provider prior to starting a new exercise program.
2. Keep well hydrated during your routine and throughout the day.
3. Stop immediately if you feel pain, or experience shortness of breath and call your doctor.
4. Start each workout with a few minutes of low impact cardio, cool down and stretch afterward:
Performing a Circuit:
Choose three exercises to perform as a circuit. Beginners – perform once with a 2 minute cardio blast such as jogging in place after the second exercise. Add additional cardio blasts (see Intermediate/Advanced below) and add additional circuits as you progress in strength and endurance.
Intermediate/Advanced – Perform a 1 minute cardio blast after the first and third exercise and a 2 minute cardio blast after the 2nd exercise. Repeat your desired circuit (3 exercises – 3 cardio blasts) 3 times.
Your circuit can consist of a total body workout, or upper body, lower body, or core exercises. You can vary the program to add variety.
Do your circuit training 2 – 3 times a week, and remember to schedule a day off between each session to allow the muscles to repair and rest.
CA Living’s Beach Body Workout On-Demand offers a Total Body Workout in just 20 minutes with Circuit Training – no gym or fancy equipment required!
Cardio Blast Options: Run/Jog in place, Jump rope, mountain climbers, etc. (see video )
