At Adrenaline Gx, a staff of certified trainers teach a wide range of classes, including CrossFit, yoga, and boot camps.

The gym has joined forces with a variety of local wellness centers, such as Venice Nutrition, where expert coaches enlighten gym members with nutrition tips and meal plans, while shepherding them away from misleading yo-yo diets and wedding cakes that have been disguised as very large cans of boiled asparagus.
