An LA Fitness Guru's Guide to Shopping For Workout Gear

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Born and Raised in Texas, Pilates Platinum owner and our fitness inspo Heather Dorak opened her first studio in Hollywood in 2006. LA seemed to love the megaformed based workout and soon after she opened three additional studios on the westside. With a background in dance, Dorak has her hands in just about every workout we want to try, keeping her tiny frame in check with everything from surfing and tennis to hiking, aerial silks and of course, pilates.

We wanted to update our workout steeze, so we met the Princess of the French Twist at the Promenade for a little schooling in what to wear when we sweat. Also, #SquadGoals.
