Quick question: Besides being actresses, what do Melissa Joan Hart, Dakota Fanning and Jenna Elfman have in common? If you found yourself stretching your mental muscles in vain, here’s the answer: They have all done a ballet-inspired workout that is offered as a class for beginners at the franchise on Colorado Boulevard.
Cardio Barre’s calorie-busting workouts, whether done one-on-one or in a group, are among the hottest in town. But how does cardio pumping and muscle tearing compare to the mixed martial arts that are a staple of the XTC Xtreme Training Center, about a mile or so east of Cardio Barre along the Colorado corridor?
Or, for that matter, how does all that frenetic activity stack up against the “Gyrotonics” and “Gyrokinesis” that gently stretches the body while strengthening it at Pilates Eagle Rock, just across the road from XTC? Or, perhaps you have something to say about the regimen over at CrossFit Eagle Rock, which specializes in cardio workouts coupled with gymastic movements—plus strength-enhancing Olympic-style power lifts? Or, further still, perhaps you have an opinion about the group cycling classes—beginners or advanced—offered at Revolutions Cycling Studio on Figueroa Street.
You get the drift—when it comes to fitness, which gym or studio in Eagle Rock do you think is the best? Whether you’re a triathlete or a troglodyte, which workout location in the neighborhood suits you best?
