Though Kodi Kitchen's TV M.D. character, Dr. Maggie, (spoiler alert!) met an unfortunate end on daytime telly show General Hospital, her role as a health helper continues in real life. Along with pal Nadine Levitt, the actress-turned-personal trainer has opened West Hollywood's new Best U Studio, the latest workout spot to join our calorie-obsessed city's intense fitness scene.
Using customized U-shaped weight bars to "teach the body balance and coordination through core work and isometric holds," the circuit classes combine barre, dance and Pilates for a major muscle-sculpting workout. Given that we've been enjoying some serious skin-baring temps lately, we definitely don't mind adding a new butt-kicking sweat sesh to our bikini prep routine.
Into it? Single sessions are $20, five-class packages are $95, 10-class packages are 175 and unlimited classes are $185 per month; see the full list of pricing and options here.
