Peace Out, Gym! These L.A. Workout Deals Are Going to Blow Your Mind, Not Your Bank Account!

February 4, 2016

yoga_fitness_skyelyfeYou may recall my post from about a year ago, in which I compiled some of the best fitness deals in Los Angeles. Well, I’m back for round two. And let’s just say, you may morph into an overnight yogi (a la me!) after reading some of these over-the-top steals!

Don’t Sweat Your Bank Account – Here Are Some of the Best Fitness Deals in L.A. Right Now!

April 3, 2015

britney-dance-11Just a week away from Coachella (a.k.a. the most important annual weekend – or two – in the life of an Angeleno), there’s still time to pack a few more solid workouts in before hitting the road to body-baring desert festivities.

But whether you’re festival bound or simply rooftop pool party bound, there’s one commonality you share with everyone: the inability to escape summer (which has already felt present in L.A. for at least a month).

That said, after some serious investigating, I’ve compiled a list of the best fitness deals all over town so that you can sweat the toxins, but not the bank account in time for bikini season.

Before you scroll, just note that if you feel overwhelmed with workout options, there’s always ClassPass, a $99-a-month membership that gives you unlimited access to participating fitness studios limited to three classes a month per location, allowing you to basically try before you buy!
