    YAS adam

    If you follow where the hottest celebs in Los Angeles are working out like I do, you’ve definitely heard of YAS. Combining two awesome workouts, yoga and spinning, YAS has created a unique class people love. Not only do you get an amazing sweat going, but you’ll get your heart rate up simply by looking around the room.

    When owner Kimberly Fowler opened the Venice location of YAS in 2001, she was on the cutting edge of fitness. People doubted her hybrid of two totally different exercise mentalities, but Kimberly quickly proved the skeptics wrong. Now you can stretch, tone and sweat in one brilliant hour--not to mention enjoy the amazing crop of gorgeous men in each and every class.

    “I want to get people off the couch and onto the mat,” Kimberly encourages. If the workout alone doesn’t call to you, allow me to share a few images of current instructors to give you the extra energy to toss on your lululemon. YAS also offers the first class for $10, so check it out and I’ll see you in class!

  • Los Angeles : Men of Fitness

    menoffitness1

    I was cranking away in a spinning class one evening, and was suddenly struck by how fancy and cute all the girls in class were. Teeny little sports bras with perfect blow outs and full faces of make up were everywhere - I was surrounded. I don’t think I had even looked at myself in the mirror before I left for class in my cropped 80’s sweats and headband. Yes, headband. I sweat like a feverish man in an acrylic sweater sitting under a heating lamp, so headbands are essential to my work out gear.

    As we climbed a huge hill on our bikes, it came to me. The fuss was targeted at the man on the pedestal (literally) at the front of the class. Our instructor was gorgeous, fit and had a killer smile. It had never occurred to me to try to be sexy in a fitness class - the two simply do not go hand in hand in my life.

    So in an effort to truly appreciate the handsomeness of Los Angeles’ Men of Fitness, we are going to take a step back and breathe it in. In an ongoing series, we will share some of the foxiest trainers and instructors LA has to offer - so why not take a long lunch and squeeze in a new workout?

    **Love your trainer? Know someone you think we should mention? Are you a member of a studio or gym packed with gorgeous men? We want to hear from you! Email us or hit us up on Twitter.
