I love training at The Sports Center – I have been training at The Sports Center off and on for 9 years and I love it. I am a fitness professional myself and I love having a place to go where I can be trained and pushed myself. My trainer is one of the best in town and the atmosphere is very motivating. Everyone is very well skilled and courteous as well as fun and friendly. I consider this my home away from home. As a professional in the same industry I have very high standards and I am always pleased with my experience there. It is always clean, every part of it, I am always greeted when I walk in the front door, the grounds are beautiful, clean towels are always available and being restocked constantly. The beauty is in the little details. Wonderful facility, great selection of classes, wonderful private trainers, beautiful pool, gorgeous tennis courts, fantastic food at the adjoining restaurant, great massages, sauna, showers...I love it! I love knowing I have a place to go to where I can turn off my brain and allow others to take care of me and motivate me and change my body from the inside out and the best part is knowing that I am in such good hands.
Best Gym in LA – I've been a member of this gym for 12 years now, starting with group kickboxing classes, then training with one of the personal trainers, and for several years it was my main gym - there every morning. It's a fantastic gym - from the friendly staff to great equipment (with no waiting even at peak times) to fantastic instructors and amazing trainers. I've moved several times and will still drive for 45 minutes each week to train with Brian. I highly recommend this gym if you are looking for a high quality place to work out where there's no "scene" to worry about. It's the perfect kind of family - always a frendly greeting but leave you alone when you want!
A Place Called Home - Toluca Lake Tennis Club and Sports Center – If you want to work out and play tennis at a club where where the members and staff are friendly, professional, and range from 18-90 than look no further. I have been a memeber of the gym for 11 years and the tennis club for over a year and have found my 'home'. The tennis director, Ben Brunkow not only is a great teacher, but a great motivator to students of all ages. You can't beat the client service and patience he displays and his private lessons are at very affordable rates. All the instructors I have encountered in private or group tennis lessons and drills are professional and likeable whether it be Ben, Muffando, Bjorn, Albert, or Anne, not to mention easy on the eyes depending upon your preference. The Sports Center (Gym) is highlighted by many dedicated personal trainers. I have had the priviledge of training with Ryan Barreras most recently who has the most positive attitude as well as a great workout plan for you. You can tell during the first moments of his session that this is his career , and not a back-up job for an actor waiting to make it. You can't go wrong here. Enjoy the fun variety of classes, pool, jacuzzi and very clean locker rooms too. You won't be dissapointed.
Best boutique gym in town....especially if you play tennis and are over 35! – This little gym has everything you need to get the best workout yet none of the attitude or competition that usually accompany a gym this intimate. While you still have to check in at the front desk, the range of services available is the best in town. I personally love the head trainer, Brian Shiers but they have a great range of personal trainers and all the right equipment. I love the range of clientele at this gym, in the same workout you will see a celebrity next to couples over 70 keeping it going. The locker rooms are equipped, the bar/restaurant are fabulous, the tennis people play a lot of tennis, and the classes are great too. There is a massage therapist which I haven't tried but hear great things and the babysitting services are lovely.
Try it out!
There's a resort feel to the place. – The Sports Center is such a pleasant place to be that my work outs have actually become consistent. Skipping one rarely comes to mind. The equipment is varied and easy to use. There is never any waiting. The locker rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. It is a tennis club, as well, with a lounge, which adds to the ambience. There are all sorts of exercise options including trainers and classes. There's even a view of Warner Bros. studios.
Everything you need in a fitness center – I am a member of the fitness portion of the Toluca Lake Tennis Club. This is without a doubt the best club I have joined. The facilities are always clean and never crowded. The equipment is well maintained and the staff is pleasant and helpful. The heated outdoor lap pool is operational year-round and both the pool and spa are clean. If you want to entertain friends or clients, the food in the restaurant is outstanding. This club definitely has exceeded my expectations.
This Tennis and Health Club has it all – I am extremely particular when it comes to health clubs and Toluca Lake Tennis/Health Club has become one of my favorites. It is well run, service is fantastic, club is spottless and the instructors and class options are top notch. I hate when I take a class at a club where the instructors seem to be in worse shape then I am. Their instructors are helpful, knowledgeable, motivating, in shape yet not intimidating. I highly recommend checking it out.
A Jewel of a Tennis Club ~TLTC – Toluca Lake Tennis Center is just 5 courts and 1 lesson court but it has tons of activities you can just drop into. If you break out the cost to play per hour here with just the Drop In options, (not to mention the host of people you can play with in the member directory and lessons) then you will find you pay less than you would at public courts where you have to find your own partners to play with. The fitness facilities and classes are fantastic and never too crowded. It's a jewel of a club tucked in behind Warner Bros Studios. The restaurant is fantastic so it's more of a social club than just a fitness facility. Full of smart, active people who play hard on the court but know how to leave it there and have fun off the court.
TLTC is simply elegant, fun and addicting!
Ah...sweetness – ............................... ................. ..................Finally, I can afford this place.
