Skyline Grill offers the perfect event space for Corporate, Family, or Friends to enjoy beautiful downtown views.  Inquire at ICevents@LakeshoreSF.com for more information and stay tuned for more updates/events to come.


2019 Summer Basketball League Registration Now Open!
Enrollment for our 2019 Summer Basketball League is now open! We accept both team registrations, as well as individuals looking to be placed on a team. For more information or to register, please email ICBasketball@LakeshoreSF.com. League play will begin in June.

Get Fit to Play with PT360!
The Path Magazine just put out its list of the Best Vacation Spots for the Traveler Looking to Stay Active, and rounding out the Top 5 were: 1) The Grand Canyon, Arizona, 2) Kauai, Hawaii, 3) Anchorage, Alaska, 4) Machu Picchu, Peru, 5) Viti Levu, Fiji!

PT360 sees the value of vacation to your new fitness lifestyle. We want you to have fitness awareness even on vacation, but sometimes finding the right place to do that is tough. Finding it and then not being in shape for it is even worse!  Address the mind & body in your fitness goals. The combination of the two are great! Email us at ICPT360@LakeshoreSF.com and let us help you “Get Fit to Play” on your vacation!

Add Your Children on to Your Account Today!

Make the Most of Side Stepping!
Weakness of the hip abductors is quite common and often present with hip impingement, iliotibial band syndrome, patellofemoral syndrome and chronic ankle sprains.  One popular hip abductor strengthening exercise is side stepping with a resistive band. It is important to note that muscle activity of the gluteus medius (gathered via electromyograph) is higher in the squat posture compared to the upright posture.  The muscle activity is also higher in the stance leg than the moving leg. 

When performing the exercise, try to squat and maintain the squat position while side stepping for the best glute workout.  View the full research article here:  https://www.jospt.org/doi/pdf/10.2519/jospt.2015.5888.
