Youth training facility opening in Rancho Cucamonga

D1Training, a training facility that works with youth athletes across the country, is opening a facility April 8 at 10768 Foothill Blvd in Rancho Cucamonga.

Jarrett Loop, the local franchisee, left his job in the electrician trades to join the field of youth training. He has experience working with kids as a trainer for young motocross enthusiasts.

D1 Training offers age-based programs including rookie (ages 7-11), developmental (ages 12-14), prep (ages 15-18) and D1 Adult. Each program includes warm-up, performance, strength, core and conditioning and cool down. D1 Training also offers one-on-one training.

Recognizing that a D1 training facility in the area could empower kids to pursue their goals, Loop took the initiative for his new location, personally handling the electrical installations and performing all the necessary demolition work himself.

Bass Pro opens second location in Orange County

For anyone heading southwest to Orange County’s coastline, a Bass Pro Shops’ Outdoor World is now open in Irvine, just along the 5 freeway at Alton Parkway.

It’s just the second of its kind in Southern California. Inland residents are likely familar with the company’s massive lodge store along the 15 freeway in Rancho Cucamonga.

The Irvine store takes the place of a shuttered Walmart Supercenter that was a Sears’ Great Indoors store before that.
