When it comes to gyms and fitness studios, Los Angeles is always on its A-game. After all, beautiful people like to maintain their figures. Here’s what’s hot in fitness in L.A. right now:
Ever wish your gym had an on-site chiropractor? Elevation Fitness provides just that. The founders of this West Hollywood gym understand that health and wellness involves much more than just pumping iron, so the gym offers services for your whole body’s wellness, including acupuncture, therapeutic massage, physical therapy and nutrition and weight loss programs. Also available are group fitness classes, Pilates and personal training.
Where can you burn about 1,000 calories in one class and help someone in need at the same time? At Cycle House, the unique indoor cycling studio that promises classes will burn between 500 and 1,250 calories, and that every class you take will translate into two meals for an American in need (thanks to a partnership with Feeding America, a hunger-relief charity). Not only that, but these cycling drills work more than just your legs — your core, back and arms also get a serious workout — and the cycling routine is different with every session, so you’ll never get bored. To boot, Cycle House offers free alkaline water on tap (said to neutralize acid in your bloodstream) instead of bottled water — part of its efforts to be a green business.
Pink Iron’s name says it all — this gym is females-only. Located on La Cienega Boulevard in West Hollywood, nearly everything in Pink Iron is, well, pink, and unlike most gyms, it offers month-to-month memberships with no initiation fee. Members enjoy group classes, including a signature Pink Fit class that incorporates cross-training methods, top-quality equipment and a dedicated and talented coaching staff who offer personalized and individual attention.
