Matteo Baker didn't put ?220? in the name of his fitness center just to help people remember its street address. He did it to remind them of his goal for the center's services: to be ?second to none.? With body-bolstering services that range from personal training to chiropractic care to nutritional counseling, 220 Fitness and Wellness blends conventional gym practices with holistic wellness therapy to forge a multifaceted approach to health. While in one of three studios or out on the beach, guests can get hearts pumping in one of the center's group classes, including boot camp, cycling, and yoga, each of which take place frequently enough to let latecomers find a fun alternate class and early comers join in the previous class's naptime. When workouts are finished, the modern facility's licensed and certified health practitioners work to help guests recover from or prevent injuries with physical therapy, chiropractic care, and massage therapy.

Step inside Naam Yoga LA and immediately breathe in the healing energy. Around every corner, sunlight pours down from the 17-foot ceilings, and beautiful photographs and paintings of temples from all over the world provide inspiration. In the upstairs sanctuary, healers offer acupuncture, massage, and Kabbalah consultations.
But the jewel in the crown is the main yoga studio, a massive space with room for 310 practitioners. Cutting-edge Whisperwave sound panels hang from the ceiling, preventing obtrusive echoes during group chants and improving acoustics during the studio's concert events.
