Located in Brickhouse Cardio Club in Oceanside, Yoga at Brickhouse offers yoga classes seven days a week for all skill levels. The updated studio features curtains to softly filter light and provide more privacy as well as candlelight that soothes and relaxes. Though people come to Yoga at Brickhouse for soothing yoga or heart-pumping workouts, they stay for the irresistible international rhythms. Zumba tends to have that effect, ensnaring exercisers with its Latin choreography and dance-party vibe. The floors pulse with 11 Zumba sessions every week, along with energetic Brickhouse Burn toning and sculpting classes and invigorating yoga sessions. The club also hosts Bokwa sessions, embracing the new workout system that finds students tracing the shapes of numbers and letters during dance-like sessions set to booty-shaking beats.
Since its inception, Brickhouse has blossomed into a franchise, expanding into 25 locations with new sites recently opened in the United Kingdom, where it hopes to supplant aerobic chimney sweeping. No matter the location, each club hosts its signature workouts in pared-down studios with the franchise?s familiar electric-blue and neon-green walls surrounding a stage.

Boot-camp programs strive to build a sense of community among clients, who can meet monthly for 5K runs and earn colored wristbands—similar to martial-arts belts or Green Lantern power rings—that signify students' progress in their fitness journeys.
