Of all the get-fit-quick schemes to pass through our inboxes, this one takes the cake for actually living up to its promise. To better serve excuse-making Angelenos, Beverly Hills sweat studio Oak Fitness Club has added the 25-Minute Burn series to its class schedule.
Created by gym co-founders (and husband and wife team) Aaron King and Nikki Cox, the 25-minute routine combines plyometrics, light weights and more multi-muscle movements for an efficient, full-body workout. The class size typically tops off at 10 people, allowing instructors to give each student a more tailored, personalized experience. (We can attest to the major sweat factor.)
Sweat seshes take place in the morning, afternoon, and evening (aptly named the Breakfast Burn, Lunch Crunch, and PM Power Up classes) and are currently available to members only, but Oak Fitness tells us they plan on offering a la carte options soon.
Memberships start at $75 per month and non-members can get a day pass for $25; check out the full sched online here.
