Best alternative fitness classes in LA


Bored of your usual spin class? We get it, we've all been there...
Don’t worry, we've got you covered. Here are some of the best alternative fitness classes that you need to sign up to in LA.

Aerial Acrobatics

Ever fancied swinging through the air with nothing but a small slither of silk keeping you from falling flat on your face? 

Nope? Us neither... 

However, if you fancy working on your flexibility and keeping fit, you might want to give aerial acrobatics a go. Established by the Cirque de Soleil aerialist, the Cirque School LA offers a huge range of classes that will teach you new skills, whilst also keeping you fit. 

Don’t fancy dangling from the ceiling – why not try a beginner’s contortion class?

It would definitely be a laugh if nothing else.

Sky Zone Trampoline Park

Perfect for those of you that are still children at heart, the Sky Zone Trampoline Park is basically an adult indoor play centre. 

Trampolines and ball pits – what more could we ask for?

Ritual Gym

No more ‘I don’t have time’ excuses with the Ritual Gym LA. 

Each of the classes are just 20 minutes long, and all are made up of Singaporean inspired HIIT workouts.

Incorporating both strength and cardio - in just 20 minutes, (that’s basically one FRIENDS episode), you can get a full workout.

As if that wasn’t enough, once you’ve finished you can then hit up their smoothie bar! Sounds good to us. 

Stronghold Climbing Gym

Situated in Downtown LA, Stronghold Climbing gym is perfect for anyone looking to get back to nature. 

With rock climbing classes for every ability, including bouldering courses for those of you feeling extra brave, this is the perfect gym if you’re looking for a bit of an adventure.

Mind, Body and Soul at OUE Skyspace

Get your camera ready because your Insta feed is not going to want to miss this.

This brand-new wellness programme takes place on top of the US Bank Tower – that’s 1,000 feet up! Choose from meditation classes, Pilates, R&B yoga, Reiki and loads more. 

Once you’ve done, finish off with a ride down Skyspace’s Skyslide.

Maybe not ideal if you’re scared of heights…


Not just for your body, Knockout promises to challenge your emotional fitness as well. 

Alongside your basic yoga classes, Knockout also offers hip-hop meditation, journaling circles and classes designed to shift your electromagnetic field through rhythmic movement and vocal exercises. Fancy, right?
