YAS Fitness Center’s founder, Kimberly Fowler, developed the studio’s signature Yoga for Athletes class as a way to improve athletic performance and reduce sports injuries. The studio’s agile trainers coach a seven-day schedule of 60-minute sessions, striving to enhance students’ flexibility and bolster injury-prone areas with sub-dermal Ace bandages. An array of classes challenges all levels of students with modifications of varying difficulty. The classes cut out the chanting and parliamentary filibusters typical of yoga classes and focus instead on more physical aspects of the activity. By targeting the muscle groups most commonly strained by sports devotees, including knees, lower backs, shoulders, and overworked foam fingers, the classes allow active students to keep large muscle groups strong and in balance, helping to reduce chances of injury.

About YAS Fitness Center - Costa Mesa
When founder and former tri-athlete Kimberly Fowler first opened YAS Fitness Center in 2001, it was the only one of it's kind. Kimberly equipped the first YAS studio—a simple acronym that stands for yoga and Spinning—with stationary bikes on one side and floor space for mats on the other, a unique design that matched Kimberly's unique attitude. Offering no-nonsense yoga and high-energy Spinning, she eschewed yoga's more spiritual aspects in favor of effective, accessible workouts. Her philosophy resonated and Yas became the place where everyone—executives, celebrities, artists— could fit in. That first studio has expanded into four, with expanded schedules to boot. Beyond the signature fusion class (called “Zen on wheels” by Self magazine), the studios host pure cycling sessions and Yoga for Athletes, designed to stretch muscles tight from indoor cycling classes or any other athletic activity.
