From the “only in LA files” we have a new concept in workout: a fitness concierge. In an upscale hotel, the concierge is the go-to person when you want recommendations of a good restaurant, tickets to a show or the name of a good dry cleaner. They have the town wired and are happy to share that information with the guests. A fitness concierge is focused on all aspects of the Los Angeles gym scene. It’s a way for folks to break out of their self-imposed workout rut and explore all the other options available.
“We started incubating the idea during the rise of the boutique studio,” FITiST co-founder Neda Talebian Funk told a local newspaper. “Individuals are increasingly booking things and shopping online, so we created a one-stop-shop for the best of the best in boutique studios and fitness and wellness providers in the City.”
The idea would be for you to change up your workout regimen. Maybe there is a hot Pilates class happening on your lunch break. Or there is a visiting yoga master who has an opening on one of their programs. What about a cool place for a kick-boxing training session? The fitness concierge can point you in the right direction. You can even tailor make your programs from “toning down” to “holiday weight loss” to “mom to be.” This also means you don’t have to be a member of one gym to take advantage of all these satellite-type of classes but instead of you spending your day Googling, let the concierge find them for you.
Los Angeles has always had a thriving gym scene. If you’re not part of that scene then you’re really missing out on a wonderful social networking opportunity. What’s great is that most gyms allow for a guest pass. This lets you sample the gym and get the vibe before committing to a membership. Try out a few gyms: the workouts are free!
Naturally, if you have a home gym you might be thinking you don’t need to step outside and join a club. Time for a reality check: How often do you use that home gym? Does the treadmill get a workout as a clothes hanger? Are the weights door stops? It’s understandable; just because you have some gym equipment in your home doesn’t mean you’re going to be motivated to use it. However, if you join a gym you’ll find a lot of positive motivation. First step, call Junk King to get rid of that old equipment. You don’t want that collecting dust anymore. Junk King Los Angeles can load all of that stuff onto the back of their truck and let you wave good-bye to it once and for all. They can also toss out any other oversize item you want to get rid of. This is one workout where you won’t break a sweat but that’s okay. Get rid of your junk and join a gym today: that’s where you should be sweating!
