Founded by an ACE–certified master fitness trainer, One-2-One Fitness transcends the impersonal large-gym experience with intimidation-free, small-group boot-camp sessions. A Monday–Saturday schedule of classes takes place indoors and out, with attendance limited to 20 participants to ensure personal attention and to decrease the likelihood of a flash-mob dance routine erupting during class. Rotating routines prevent boredom with cardio spurts of jogging and plyometrics complemented by strength-building pushups and squats. An emphasis on dynamic partner exercises encourages patrons to pair up with buddies or significant others in shedding pounds.
A personalized fitness assessment determines which areas of the gymnastic sciences you need the most help in, allowing you to focus on problem subjects during your month of no-holds-barred gym access. O2's facilities play host to a variety of playground equipment for the adult-child at heart. Burn your calories in style on more than 100 pieces of individual cardio equipment. Each apparatus is decked out with a personal entertainment screen that doubles as a futuristic magazine tray or vertical forehead-rest. In addition, a full selection of free weights and strength machines allows you to tone and sculpt with Michelangelic precision.
LA Boxing offers fitness classes in boxing, kickboxing, and mixed martial arts. The proprietary style of the LA Boxing workout is a mixture of genuine fight training, engaging fitness, and stronger-than-earth gravity. Quasi-boxers and martial artists may burn from 800 to more than 1,000 calories during these total-body routines, which combine external inspiration with jukes, jabs, and kicks. Both men and women are welcome in the ring, where they'll learn new techniques and methods to blissfully break into a sweat in an energetic group setting. Gloves are provided during the one-month trial membership, as are a set of reusable pro-quality hand wraps and complimentary motivational mumbling from Burgess Meredith (all three subject to availability).
Since 1965, Gold's Gym has combined the latest cardio and strength equipment with knowledgeable personal trainers to provide an energetic, motivational environment that helps attain fitness goals. A membership gets gym-goers unlimited access to all equipment, fitness classes, amenities, clubs, and the vast collection of rare Spider-Man comics. Each location differs slightly, but the group fitness classes may include yoga, group cycling, mixed martial arts, turtle grooming, muscle endurance training, and Pilates. The toned transformation begins with a one-hour fitness assessment conducted by a personal trainer. The health age and health risk assessment will determine your current level of fitness and desired goals before creating a customized fitness plan.
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing With the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily participants won't need her dance moves to get the most out of each class. Those prone to first-class jitters, though, can review the basic moves online before attending. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
