STUDIO FACILITIES: 4/5
I have to admit that out of all the workout classes I have done, this has by far been my absolute favorite. I am already a huge fan of the Versa Climber as it is a unique cardio/full body exercise always leaving me sore after. Again I had a few people refer me to this studio but everything from the setting of the class to the instructor was ON POINT!
First of all, the music alone was so perfectly orchestrated with high tempo and motivating beats. Music alone can either make or break a workout class in my opinion. The lights were off and the windows were covered with blackout curtains, the ceiling are covered with fluorescent lights – it was totally a rave style atmosphere!
My friend and I were obsessed with the instructor Louis, he had soooo much energy, constantly walking around the room making a personal connection with everyone and spitting out inspiring messages that really helped me push through the workout. Before we knew it, the 30 minute class was over! It was such an awesome experience and I will definitely be back next time I’m in LA.
In terms of facilities, there are two private bathrooms but no showers. There is space in the workout room to leave your bags and any belongings. They also have a beautiful outdoor patio that serves brunch/lunch on the weekend or you can bring your own snacks and sit out there at anytime. Rise Nation is on ClassPass and it should be on your list of gyms to check out in LA!
