Friends since college, Fit On founders Franca Stadvec and Angela Bennett, are former athletes and fitness enthusiasts who understood the power of people coming together for a shared purpose. When that purpose became supporting each other in their journey toward better fitness, Fit On Studios came into being. The studio hosts intimate group classes to maintain a supportive atmosphere.
During indoor cycling sessions, guests climb onto adjustable Schwinn bikes to burn fat and clear their minds by focusing solely on their workout. The center also focuses on joint-friendly exercise, such as barre classes that use low-impact, focused movements to tone lean muscles and improve balance, and TRX suspension training that builds strength by leveraging the body’s own weight.
It's 105 degrees, but the humidity level is perfect and the air is pure. It's not a freak summer day—it's the spacious studio of The Hot Yoga Center. There, yoga students of all levels can perfect their hatha and power yoga skills on the cushioned, non-slippery floor, breathing in the regularly purified air as the balmy temperatures help them achieve deeper stretches and more pliable butter sculptures during 60- and 90-minute classes. For a faster paced class that's geared toward strengthening the core, students can try Novo yoga, whose 40 postures and two breathing exercises tone and stretch the body during 70-minute sessions. Instructors lower the heat for yin yoga classes, allowing students to slow down racing thoughts for an introspective hour-long session.

As a working actress, Judie Aronson was always working out. She moved from one workout modality to the next, but it wasn?t until the fitness devotee came across a fusion of Pilates, cardio, and strength training that she knew she?d found an exercise formula that wasn?t only effective, but engrossing. Wishing to share her discovery with the community without investing in a 20-ton megaphone, Aronson opened her RockIt Body Pilates studio, which garnered a plethora of enthusiastic press, including the accolade of Best Workout Trend and Best Personal Training 2011 from Southbay magazine. She and her team of trainers introduce clients to dynamic, challenging, and fun workout sessions that target a variety of muscles using specialized Pilates equipment.
RockIt Body's two locations, in Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach, have become successful enough to garner commercial attention from a television camera. Aronson's many clients have included Bill Engvall, who used the studio when preparing for Dancing With the Stars, and Olympic gold medalist Rebecca Soni, who is now a trainer at RockIt Body Pilates.
