Best Workout Classes in Los Angeles
Yep, Bünda. It’s one of the best workout classes in Los Angeles. Bünda is a boutique fitness studio in West Hollywood founded by two personal trainers. They designed a full-body workout class, but there’s a lot of emphasis on glutes exercises since Bünda means butt in Brazilian Portuguese.
I went on a Sunday to the Total Body Workout class, instructed by Kevin. The workout is divided into two sections: 1/2 Stairmaster + 1/2 resistance training. This class is an intense workout. You’ll sweat and be sore afterward but will feel so good. The studio is very new and Insta-worthy. Free parking is available (which is amazing considering they’re located in West Hollywood). They provide you with a face towel as well as a towel to wipe the equipment. I attended this intense class via ClassPass. Each class is $30 (specials going on during January with $15/class). Skip this class if you have knee issues (due to the Stairmaster).
This studio loves to make people sweat w
The Crystal, Reiki, Sound Healing class with Katie on Saturday at 6:30 pm is the most relaxing yoga session ever. I had gone to a Kundalini yoga class with a sound bath (read more here) but not a healing class. This class is a mix of guided meditation and Reiki healing. Katie places crystals on you while a sound bath is playing. The yoga studio has infrared lights and a Hamalyian salt wall that helps with breathing.
But wait! Why is this one of the best workouts in Los Angeles? Since meditation has a huge impact on your overall health. I slept so well the night I took this class. It is an amazing class that I highly suggest for anyone who has sleeping issues. Next time I go to this studio, I want to try an infrared sauna session. I attended this relaxing class via ClassPass. Each class is $25. Parking is not the best in this area.
How about trampoline cardio? Body by Simone (BBS) is a boutique fitness and personal training studio located in New York, London, and Los Angeles. Simone De La Rue founded BBS, which is loved by many celebs. BBS offers four signature classes: 1. Trampoline Cardio; 2. Hips, Thighs, Buns; 3. Full Body; and 4. Dance Cardio. The classes are dance-inspired but it is for all levels.
I attended the Trampoline Cardio class at the Brentwood location. It is a low impact cardio workout (good for knees and joints) that increases lymphatic flow. Trampoline Cardio is a “high energy workout in interval choreographed bouncing, on a spring free rebounder, with intermittent full-body strengthening.” This is a great class for anyone who loves feeling like a kid again and those who dislike or can’t run. According to the American Council on Exercise, the trampoline workout has the same benefits as running and improves balance. But wait? What if you fall? But that’s the fun part of it. The Brentwood location is located in the trendy Brentwood Village with tons of eateries nearby. I attended this high energy class via ClassPass. Each class is $28 at the Brentwood location.
Rated the best pilates in Los Angeles, Love for Pilates is a pilates studio with 3 locations: Hollywood, West Hollywood, and Santa Monica. All of the classes are conducted on a reformer machine. I went to Reformer Level 1 class at the West Hollywood location, but it was anything but basic. You would think the level 1 class would be easy! However, there are no easy workouts at Love for Pilates. It was super intense (for pilates anyway). But I suggest arriving early if you’re new to reformer pilates to go over how the machine works.
Don’t forget your grip socks since you can’t workout without them. If you do forget, don’t worry. They sell cute ones at the front desk for $10. Each Class is $10-$12 for new clients depending on which location with a current promotion of $5/class for the Hollywood location. Street parking only.
This workout is currently the trendiest workout in Los Angeles. Rumble is a boxing-inspired group class. The popularity of this studio is due to celeb endorsements and social media ads featuring Insta-models but the studio does live up to the hype.
There are two segments with 10 rounds: 1. boxing bags and 2. the floor (resistance training). The resistance training segment is a combo of HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training), and METCON (metabolic conditioning). If you’re new to boxing or need a refresher, there’s a mini-training of the six basic boxing punches at the beginning of the classes. I love how each of the punching sequences is projected on the board since you can’t get lost in which punch comes next. The studio is dark and the music is loud. While you’re waiting for the class to start, it does seem like everyone is waiting for a modeling audition. But the class is not intimidating. Everyone is there to work out a sweat. I almost forgot to mention, this studio was created with Instagram in mind so be ready to pose.
You will need boxing gloves and wraps. They do sell them at the front desk. The wraps are for $8 but they are so worth it since they are much easier to wrap than traditional boxing wraps. Parking is available in the building structure for $2. Each class is $32 (but for new clients, it’s 2 classes for $32).
Best Workout Classes in Los Angeles – A reminder …
When it comes to workout classes in Los Angeles, always remember not to compare yourself with anyone else in the class. You should always go at your own pace. Most likely the ones who are outpacing everyone else in the class are personal trainers or fitness models since it is Los Angeles after all. You know they have to work out too (lol).
