Where do elite athletes train? Sometimes under the same roof as everyday people. Velocity's trainers—some of which have worked with athletes on the world stage—bring their talents to help people of all ages meet their fitness goals or become champions during sports training sessions. With a focus on agility, speed, and strength, trainers help exercisers improve their performance in specific sports or train anyone who wants to get in better shape.
The coaches also lead students in general fitness classes, such as CrossFit, which uses intense interval training to build muscle and burn fat. With physical therapy also available, clients know someone is there to help muscles repair after an intense workout or after another botched effort at walking down the stairs while juggling.
Customers dust off unexplored muscle groups with the myriad exercise amenities at Spectrum Athletic Clubs. Although facilities vary by location, visitors can unleash a stationary bike from an indoor cycling studio to ride through spaces that include Pilates studios, basketball and volleyball courts, cardio equipment with individual flat-screens, heated swimming pools, and women-only workout areas devoid of the sound of men crying through exceptionally bendy yoga poses. Certified personal trainers and instructors conduct more than 1,200 group classes and training courses weekly in kickboxing, yoga, and more. Interactive kids' clubs are available for when kickbox cravings arise and the sitter is still missing after a game of hide-and-seek. After sweat sessions, nosh rewardingly with a healthy bite at the in-house café at the Canoga Park, Palisades, Valencia, Howard Hughes and South Bay locations, or attempt to digest a low-calorie towel from the unlimited towel service.
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.
Unlimited Fitness offers its clients personalized training in lively small-group settings. The trainers welcome 8–10 clients to attend each of their 55-minute sessions, which take place multiple times a day and require reservations. Because they place a cap on the number of students in attendance, the trainers can easily customize exercise routines to suit everyone’s particular fitness goals, skills, and number of extra arms.
Besides trainers equipped with all the fitness knowledge needed to whip clients into shape, the gym comes fully stocked with everything from ellipticals and stationary bikes to resistance bands and medicine balls.

The instructors at Fuse Fitness For Women know that people are less likely to work out when they view exercise as excruciating work. That's why they fuse resistance training and core-strengthening classes with dance moves, giving each class the upbeat vibe of a party. Patrons can tone muscles and burn calories in classes such as Hula Hoop or Kick & Tone, or opt for a Zum-belly or Hot Zumba class. Students can also seek out nutritional advice from fitness specialists or request one-on-one training.
