The Golden State Warriors are having a terrific season, and locals are flocking to the Oakland Arena on the regular to watch the home team trounce the competition. (Even if it's over, 19-home game winning streak is no small feat.) Among the most loyal fans week after week are the women cheering the players on from the sidelines night after night: The Warriors Dance Team.

Team Captain Amira, a fourth-year Warriors dancer, has a busy schedule. In addition to her day job, she juggles practices, games, and promotional appearances with the squad. But on the rare occasion when Amira has free time, you can find her spending a leisurely afternoon in (and around) the Marina. "My perfect Saturday would be a Warriors home game day at Oracle Arena, but when we do have the day off, I love being active," she tells Racked. From her weekend workout to her favorite cafes and spa, this is how Amira fills her down time.
