No Excuse Workout is a full-service health and fitness club that provides a motivating and friendly gym atmosphere, as well as up-to-date equipment and classes. At this functional space, gym-goers can run on treadmills, climb up Stair Masters, and lift free weights before punching away stress at the onsite boxing ring. Five personal trainers help clients get customized and tangible results, and there's plenty of free group classes taught in the studio. The teachers help students dance away calories in upbeat Zumba classes, or try circuit training or yoga—there's even a belly dancing class. The gym further demonstrates its ability to accommodate diverse guests with a relaxing onsite sauna, plenty of resistance-training equipment and tanning beds, and a pro shop. Here, patrons can buy exercise equipment and nutritional supplements—which, if bought in large enough quantities, can be lifted just like dumbbells for strength training.

Sticks and stones may break some bones, but not if they’re directed toward one of Capital MMA & Elite Fitness’s students. In a team-oriented environment, the studio’s instructors teach key mixed-martial-arts moves such as grappling, striking, and wrestling and supplement the training with classes in specific fighting styles, such as Brazilian jiu-jitsu and muay thai. Guests looking for a practical crash course in self-defense learn snippets from each technique in self-defense classes, learning methods for staying aware of surroundings, fending off attackers, and freeing themselves from the grip of King Kongs. Some women-only classes are also available.

The studio's CrossFit program, alternatively, boosts athleticism without combat, through a multi-faceted regimen of Olympic weightlifting, cardio exercise, and custom diets. Beyond group classes, the center offers private lessons and seminars, which allow its students—both children to adults—to learn with focused guidance.

LA Boxing’s fight-centric gyms ditch the polished look of wood-floored workout studios for gritty, competitive spaces filled with 150-pound punching bags and intense workouts. Like a baker molding gingerbread men, LA Boxing sculpts six-packs with boxing, kickboxing, and mixed-martial-arts classes. Although instructors and students agree that the gym’s atmosphere may enkindle intimidation in first-time attendees, most experience boosted self-confidence after conquering their first class. Private training sessions further stoke courage with workouts that leave patrons with the exhilaration of having survived 12 rounds in the ring or five minutes in a high-school lunchroom.

Q&A with Berhane Mehari, Trainer

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Every client is different. But with so many fad diets that make unrealistic promises, the disappointment that comes from not achieving those results often causes people to quit. I'm different with my clients. I tell them from the start that they must be 100% committed to both exercise and a strict nutritional plan to reach their goals. I'm available to them in any way I can to support them. Once they start seeing the results of their hard work, they are motivated to even work harder and never quit.

When and how did you first develop a passion for fitness?
I've been interested in fitness for as long as I can remember. I first started training my friends when I was in grade school. Having my own business as fitness trainer is not just a business to me; it is my passion.
