Sky Zone fully embodies the concept of bouncing off the walls, as the facility is lined with gigantic trampolines on the floors and angled trampolines on adjacent walls. Ideal for people of all ages, shapes, and physical abilities, the trampolines unite to form one massive sea of bouncy terrain, upon which visitors can play or compete with hanging basketball hoops. Sky Zone is home to Ultimate dodgeball, an interactive twist on the classic playground sport that has teams jumping and dodging at new heights. Additionally, the park is great for birthdays and special events. Serious boot camps and aerobics courses allow guests to get into shape and have fun at the same time, unlike running from a stampede of buffalo.
Since 2000, Tim and Tom Ryan, twin brothers and the founders of Atomic Boxing, have put their black belts to use and help patrons harness the health benefits of martial arts without the violent aspects of the sport. Fists and feet pop against personal punching bags as personal instructiors motivate students to burn fat and pump up endurance. To set the mood for muscle building and to bolster adrenaline, speakers fill the gym with driving beats or fighter pilots reading their to-do lists. Near the punching bags, free weights clatter at benches and machines target muscle groups. In addition to group sessions, instructors host one-on-one workouts.
Pose your way to the pinnacle of vitality and strength while ascending through degrees of difficulty and degrees of Fahrenheit during classes in CorePower's temperature-controlled studios. The raised heat level expedites the breakdown of fatty acids, delivers more blood to the muscles, and reduces the chances of injury. Start at level 1, where you'll be comfortably introduced to proper postures at room temperature, then ascend to the humid human heights of advanced yoga in a detoxifying 95 degrees. Yogis of all skill levels can step into the 97-degree atmosphere of Hot Power Fusion, during which a range static poses stretch over the course of one rejuvenating hour. Classes vary by location, so check out the full schedule here.
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.

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).
West Coast Sports and Fitness Center gets bodies into shape under the guidance of owner Steven Sanchez and director of fitness Ron Carter. Sanchez is guided by 12 years of experience working with doctors, physical therapists, and chiropractors, during which time he studied how the body functions and improves through activity. Meanwhile, Carter has spent more than 21 years coaching men, women, and children across a variety of sports and is a certified personal trainer and sports-injury specialist.
Inside a spacious fitness center, Steven and Ron oversee a staff of instructors who lead students through cardio kickboxing, boot camps, and Zumba. Athletes can also train on a tract of turf inside the center that simulates a real-life sports field or the furry back of an imaginary green monster.
Center for Health and Fitness's facility spans 17,000 square feet and harbors everything members need to embrace wellness. The cardio space beckons exercisers with Matrix treadmills, stationary bikes, and stair climbers, as well as arm-cranks and seated NuStep elliptical trainers, which go easy on joints and aid in injury rehabilitation. A complete kettlebell set stands out among the abundant strength training equipment, which also includes Hammer Strength machines, free weights, and a squat cage. Functional training equipment is also available, including foam rollers, medicine balls, and Thera-Bands for building giant rubber-band balls.
Each of the center's personal trainers and medical exercise specialists boasts a health-related college degree, as well as certifications from the ACSM and other organizations. They teach group exercise to cultivate fitness camaraderie—classes such as belly dance, body sculpt, and cycling are included in basic memberships, and unlimited memberships open up a wide variety of Pilates and yoga sessions on the studio's wooden floors. Instructors also lead classes that focus on meditation, weight management, and nutrition.
To reward bodies after a workout or for not spontaneously combusting, massage therapists infuse Swedish kneading with techniques including shiatsu, deep tissue, and reiki. Staffers replenish stacks of freshly laundered towels so members can wick away sweat or towel off after using the locker rooms' showers, stocked with shampoo and conditioner.
