Before Art Stone was head of Total Woman Gym & Spa, he ran a chain of salons. His female clientele loved their custom cuts, but California had no shortage of stylists—what they really struggled to find was day-spa pampering and weight-loss assistance, all in one spot. Stone listened, and in 1965, created precisely the sanctuary they were looking for.
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).

Though the Megaformer may sound like a character out of Transformers, it's actually a piece of Pilates equipment. The apparatus blends classic Pilates movements with cardio and weight training for a full-body workout. It's also what sets Pilates Plus Cycle apart from its competitors. Rather than run in place on a treadmill or perform repetitive dead lifts, members immerse themselves in a fitness practice that quickly tones limbs, strengthens mid-sections, and boosts endurance without putting pressure on their joints. Though they're the centerpiece, the Megaformer classes aren't the only workouts at the fitness haven. Spinning whisks members onto stationary bikes where they change the resistance settings and speed to burn calories and firm up legs.
