  • We Fit Gym
    It was the back pain that convinced Clint Bigham to give up a promising career in golf—he competed in junior tournaments against greats such as Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia, going pro at age 20—and begin exploring the world of yoga and Pilates for the healing he sought. Now a certified personal trainer and the founder of We Fit Gym, Clint spends his time helping people shrink waistlines and feel energetic enough to perform superhuman feats, such as attending a nudist convention fully clothed. His gym is an oasis that tradition and innovation happily share; conventional equipment and classes work in tandem with ROM (Range of Motion) machines, TurboSonic, and HyperGravity vibration trainers, and an infrared sauna whips bodies into shape with low risk of injury and maximum efficiency. Before clients begin building strength and setting calories afire, Clint consults with them to develop a custom fitness program, covering nutrition basics, recommending workout routines, and exposing the sad, sad truth about motivational posters.

  • Pop Physique Long/Seal Beach
    At the end of a fruitful career that led her from the Cincinnati Ballet to the Sacramento Ballet, Jennifer Williams funneled her dance savvy into creating the barre-inspired exercise system taught at Pop Physique, a 2013 CityVoter finalist for Best Gym. Her fleet of handpicked and personally trained instructors pairs graceful ballet moves with other low-impact exercises in order to chisel cores without injuring muscles. Deep stretches further preserve tendons and leave each student more relaxed than a tortoise moseying past a state patrolman with a radar gun. Sessions run multiple times a day, seven days a week at an expanding network of SoCal locations. The roomy studios are lined with sprung dance floors and design accents that lend each location a distinct personality and a chance to forget its past as a storage room for defective food processors.

  • The Studio by Bridget
    Sunlight floods through the floor-to-ceiling windows of The Studio by Bridget, beaming across the sparkling canals of Long Beach to illuminate 1,900 square feet of space. Lined against the walls, Pilates equipment ranges from Reformers to more unusual gear used in private training, such as the ladder barrel and the stability chair, ideal for seated workouts that give students a more rigorous exercise than cranking a recliner footrest up and down. On this equipment—or on simple Pilates mats—the studio’s team hosts classes that lengthen and strengthen muscles, balancing physiques and enhancing flexibility through regimens involving stretching, breathing, resistance training, pulleys, and cables. The staff complements its Pilates offerings with spinning classes and TRX sessions, whose Reformer workouts were designed by a Navy SEAL.

  • Five Starr Pilates & Fitness
    Starr Bunch spent 20 years working in early childhood development, but when she started taking Pilates classes, her life changed. In founding Five Starr Pilates & Fitness, Starr and her fellow instructors inspire that same level of passion in others. On Pilates reformer machines and stationary bikes, they challenge exercisers with workouts that change up and stay fun. Those looking to blend both disciplines can take the reformer-cycling combination class that's taught by a very rare centaur. The chic, robin's egg- and slate-colored facility also serves as the setting for personal training sessions.

  • SunKiss Yoga
    The room looks still, quiet, and cool, but the temperature's rising. At SunKiss Yoga, ten instructors versed in the art of hot yoga crank the heat to mimic the temperature and humidity of India, the discipline's birthplace. During classes, students move through postures with an ease brought on by the increased temperature, which is similar to that of the human body or the middle of a sleeping bag in the morning. Other classes include traditional Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Buti Yoga, belly dance, and Barre (a combination of ballet, yoga, and Pilates).

  • Studio H Conditioning
    The instructors at Studio H Conditioning can attest to the power and efficacy of Pilates. As dancers, Heidi Debrincat, Andrea Smirh and Natalie Gonzalez have an intimate understanding of the limitations of their own bodies, and each have found Pilates an integral part of not only maintaining their flexibility, but also preventing future injuries. The instructors lead group classes and offer private sessions that help students chisel strong cores, enhance posture, and build better lung capacity than a professional basketball inflator.
