Exercisers gather in one of two West LA locations for 60-minute outdoor workouts that include combos of strength training, plyometrics, and cardio moves that change on a daily basis. Boot camps are held in five-week sessions, which begin and end with fitness and health assessments and include access to an electronic food and mood journal, an exercise guide, and a dietary assessment with an optional consultation with a nutritionist. Customers should wear sneakers and workout clothes and bring mats and water. See the schedule for a full list of morning classes, held at the east end of the park, and evening classes, held under the lights of the west end of the park.
West LA Boot Camp
As a personal trainer, kettlebell- and TRX-certified instructor, and former competitive swimmer, West LA Boot Camp owner Ben Maughan has powered through countless exercises in his life. So he understands the drudgery that can come along with repetitive exercise routines, and that’s why he switches up his boot-camp curriculum every day.
Amid the fresh air of the Barrington Recreation Center, he tries to whip patrons into shape with 60-minute workouts—held five days a week—that combine strength training, plyometrics, and cardio maneuvers. In addition, he uses food and mood journals, fitness assessments, and nutritional guidance to steer participants toward their wellness goals and away from fully stocked refrigerators made of gingerbread. Customers also receive discounts at health-oriented businesses such as GNC and 24 Hour Fitness.
