When Oprah wanted to inspire her audience to get in shape on the “Live Your Best Life” tour, she called Laurent Amzallag. When JC Hayward wanted to get her studio moving, she called Laurent Amzallag. When CBS wanted to host regular segments to get their viewers up off the couch, they called Laurent Amzallag. There’s a reason so many are drawn to this spellbinding fitness guru: the YaLa inventor and all-around lady-killer cloaks gym-ready exercises in fun dance moves to create his own fun brand of exercise.
YaLa routines fold tenets of plyometrics, core training, cardio, and agility together for fast-paced, high-energy sessions that whip bodies into shape without repetitive lunges, boring squats, or tedious uphill boulder rolls. Laurent and his team also host special YaLa events and outreach activities, such as the Michael Jackson–soundtracked “Believe” workout party and fundraisers for the local children’s hospital.
