So many of you have asked about my workout routine, and I’m so excited because I can’t wait to share more of it with you. I’ll be kicking off 2018’s fitness series with my LA fitness guide. Here, you’ll get a breakdown of all my favorite places to work out. I have never enjoyed going to the gym nor exercised consistently, but I’m so glad to have finally found a routine that works. Through my journey of working out on and off, I’ve learned that where you choose to exercise makes a huge difference in your motivation to keep going. I’ve become an advocate of working out because it makes you feel and look great. If you’re struggling to find something that you can commit to, here are some of my go-to places that you should try:

If you haven’t heard of SoulCycle, it’s basically a 45-minute indoor cycling class that’s high energy, motivating, and dynamic. If you’re skeptical about the hype, let me assure you that it’s 100% worth it. I always go in knowing I’ll break a sweat and come out stronger and more energized. The studio has a great atmosphere with enthusiastic instructors and amazing music. It always gets me really pumped up.
Y7 Studio or Hot 8 Yoga
I also do hot yoga three times a week at Y7 Studio or Hot 8 Yoga. Y7 Studio is a small, intimate spot that really allows me to get in my element with its dark, candlelit environment. Every session is different and I really appreciate that. They’re great for changing it up. I also love the ambiance at Hot 8 Yoga. As a bonus, you get eucalyptus-infused towels after class that feel and smell like a dream after a hot sweaty session.
After several years, I finally took the plunge with hiring a personal trainer and it has made a world of difference. Personal trainers not only help with creating a workout plan tailored to your needs, body, and goals, but they motivate you. The individual attention you get with a personal trainer is unparalleled and helps ensure you you’ll stick to a certain program. With so many trainers on the market today, I would encourage you to find one that suits your personality and fitness style.
BBG Workout Kayla Itsines
You’ve probably seen or heard of Kayla Itsines at some point or another. She’s the face behind the popular Bikini Body Guide (BBG)! What drew me to this workout plan was the short amount of time it takes to do. All it requires is 28-minutes three times a week. The exercises are broken into arms and abs, legs, and full-body. I’ll be starting this training today and can’t wait to see the results unfold (more to come on this).
Besides these workouts, I’m planning on taking boxing, dance and pilates classes to switch things up a bit. Don’t forget to share your favorite LA workout spots below or if you’ve tried any of these!
