Since we're in store for oven-like temps this week (90 degrees?

If you haven't caught the underwater act, the gals host classes at the Annenberg Beach House that will throw your abs into the deep end (think muscle-lengthening and toning exercises like sculling, layouts, ballet legs, torpedoes, tucks, and marching)!
