Each Burbank Athletic Club shelters rows of cardio equipment, well-oiled circuit trainers, and racks of gleaming free weights in a spacious setting outfitted with convenient amenities. Workouters can saunter into the Media Center location, where a 2,000-square-foot aerobic studio lined with hardwood flooring and mirrors houses group classes, such as Piloxing, a unique blend of boxing and Pilates and not a way of serving smoked salmon in capsule form. Students practice fisherman-knot stretches in a Yoga Refresh class held in the softly lit Ohm Room, and sweat factory production kicks into high gear during fat-burning spinning classes. BAC Media Center rounds out the hefty lineup of fitness routines with premium salsa, MMA, and Zumba classes.
Cardio units entertain viewers with LCD TVs built into treadmills and ellipticals at both centers, and 50-inch plasma TVs hanging in the North location give weight lifters a clear view of karaoke lyrics for hourly renditions of “Pump Up The Jam.” The Burbank Athletic Club helps guests fit visits into busy schedules with a range of complimentary amenities including parking and childcare for the duration of their workout.
Burbank Athletic Club
Fitness guru and founder of Burbank Athletic Club Greg Bedrossian knows what it means to beat the odds. Born with a hole in his heart, he was advised throughout his life to avoid strenuous exercise. But instead of giving up, Greg dug into deep personal reserves of will and became a personal trainer, eventually opening Burbank Athletic Club.
Today, his CPR- and AED-certified trainers have picked up on his knack for bypassing perceived physical limitations. Through their fitness classes and training programs, the staff strives to help their students embody the same grit and determination in shaping their own bodies. The high-intensity classes—including cardio kickboxing and a boxing-Pilates fusion known as Piloxing—ramp up the difficulty as time goes on. Vinyasa, flow, and other forms of yoga are available as well, led by experienced yogis. These are contrasted by low-impact, high-intensity spinning classes, which work the body but also the mind, as clients must recognize that no matter how hard they pedal, in the end they go nowhere. Classes are often supplemented with individual workouts in a vast gym filled with weight machines, free weights, and cardio machines.
