In addition to a warm, friendly atmosphere, the classes, teachers and trainers are the best in Los Angeles. Unlike corporate gym chains, RPM classes are more intimate, and the instructors are more attentive. RPM also offers a variety of classes where you can meet all of your workout needs: Spinning, Pilates, yoga, personal training and nutrition counseling. RPM features several combo classes where RPM clients can expect 30-40 minutes of heart-pounding, motivating cardio, then another 15-20 minutes on abs, body-sculpting, yoga or Pilates. We like to recommend two workouts for the price of one.
RPM is also known for its Battlezone Bootcamp. This well-rounded physically and mentally challenging bootcamp-style workout is recognized throughout the Valley.
Boot camp is overpriced and a bit of a joke – It's a new year, so you're ready to get in shape, right? Unless you are really desperate, (i.e. you have zero fitness knowledge, lack self-respect, RPM is right across the street from where you live and you don't have a car) I cannot recommend this gym. Boot camp is extremely expensive for a group class. The least the instructors could do is show up on time. They don't. Ironically, students who arrive late (later than them?) are charged five bucks or some small yet hypocritical amount like that. And because they just rolled up half asleep and unprepared, they have to make their coffee, which they will then get off the bike they should be instructing you from and drink it in front of you. It appears too much to ask for them to do their personal routine on their own time and then show up ready to teach. It's disrespectful and arrogant and shows a lack of gratitude for their clients. They bring to mind so many "experienced" trainers in Los Angeles who have knowledge of health and wellness and use that to intimidate those who don't, but because they have been in the business of fitness a long time they suffer from severe burnout and lack sincere enthusiasm for YOUR workout. If you ask too many questions they get mean and defensive and resort to bullying tactics which is not the same as instilling discipline. Anyone who pays their dues and shows up 5 days a week at 6 am deserves better. I won't even comment on the "nutrition" aspect of the camp which is a joke. They also take people out of class to "weigh in" which will waste even more of your class time, instead of doing it before or after. They try to cram it all in during what is presented up front as "workout" time. It's not rocket science and of course if you eat healthy and work out 5 times a week for 90 minutes you will most likely see results, depending on what your base line was before you got there.
Negative Feedback keeps me away! – From what I have read, the negatives seem to at least equal if not outweigh the positive feedback of this place. I will definitely stay away. Sounds like the owners have abuse issues and take them out on their clients. Also sounds like they are harder on people than people are on themselves.
the thing i was looking for... right here are RPM – Cynthia and Karyn,
I just want to thank you for everything you have given to me over this last year... renewed energy, a new outlook on health, a renewed confidence, a new body, a new appreciation for gooooood music... among other things!
Because of the encouraging and challenging environment you create I have lost 60lbs so far and i plan on loosing more. For the first time in a long time, i find it fun to go to the gym. I have met so many new people that I can now call friends, who encouraged me along the way. I love how everyone encourages each other! You are generous and giving with your knowledge of the body and health.
its been a real blessing to have you and RPM in my life. this is a long term relationship.
Amazed – I've lost 60lbs at RPM Fitness Studio since Sept. 2008. It has been hard work, but with the help of Cynthia and Karyn I have managed to look HOT just in time for summer. I tried going to popular chain gyms (you know which ones) and none of those gyms can compare. These women are very motivational, caring, and determined to make you a work out lover. You will never find another spinning studio like this.
I,ve been going there over 10 years &I still love it – Cynthia and Karen truly try to help you accomplish
your very best workout. Yes, they push you but in
my opinion its done with love and caring. Its the best
part of my daily routine.
No Regrets Just Sweat! – When I spin I sweat like a badger in mating season and sometimes after a "lost" Ray Milland weekend, my bike has the sweet, yet pungent smell of a brewery but I know that after three songs in to an RPM spin workout I'll be as sober as a nun (I assume they're sober). So what am i saying here as I ride headlong into my 60th birthday? RPM Fitness Studio is the absolute tip top place to get into the best shape of your life and meet some terrific people along the way. Come on down and watch the badger sweat!
whiners-STFU – I first camp to RPM to take Bootcamp. I religiously showed up on time, and worked my tail off. There were always members who were late, didnt show up and complained it was too hard or that the girls were mean.
STFU I say, if you want to be pampered go to a spa. I was the most fit I have ever been in my life during that time. I now take spinning and find a certain warmth and commrodorie with most of the members. When I am gone for a bit they all ask where I have been. I miss my spin pals. Most are so warm and friendly even though we all are really different as individuals from actors to moms to screaming cowgirls like me. I almost hate to say what a great place it is cause then maybe too many people will come and I wont get a bike...:-)
If you love spinning, need one on one training, or need a combo of bootcamp and pilates.. this place is a gem in the valley. RPM rocks!!
I SWEAR BY THIS PLACE! – Karen and Cynthia are the perfect combination, helping you get back into shape and taking control of your life again. One of the many great things about this place is that Karen and Cynthia work really hard at getting you to work hard simply because they care. Their passion for healthier living is nothing short of inspiring, infectious and educational. Not only will you lose the weight that you couldn't lose on your own, you will also learn about nutrition and how to listen to your body and it's reaction to what you eat. You will meet many people that are in the same boat as you. This is very important because it also provides a built in support system resulting in a camaraderie amongst one another. You walk out many pounds lighter feeling better about your self then you have done in years and you will do so while gaining a bunch of new friends. RPM Fitness Studio has now become my home away from home. I am living proof because I lost 50 lbs in 10 weeks! That's right 50 lbs!
RPM ROCKS my sweaty SOCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – WOW! I do not even know where to begin with this but here goes! I am a loyal RPM spinner going on 10 years now. I have tried everything out there from yoga to personal training and this place is far superior to them all. Yes, the owners are tough and Yes the results are worth it...this place is not for the sensitive or thin skinned, there are "gyms" out there for those types who want to go at a snails pace of fitness. If you want fast results or are type "A' in personality, come on down!!! and bring a sweat towel...
The best spin class you'll ever find! – Don't believe any of the negative comments written unless you're just not serious about getting in shape. If you are truly serious about getting in shape and can handle hearing the truth about what you need to do, then RPM is for you. Cynthia and Karyn are knowledgeable and motivating. I have been going to RPM for 5 years now and have done Bootcamp (the first time I lost 25 lbs. after my first child), spin classes, pilates, pilates beats and bodybarre. They are all great and every spin instructor is wonderful. You will never find a spin class that focuses more on your form which is the only way you'll see results. There are many choices out there, so if RPM is not for you, then don't come. Not only are the owners and instructors great, but I've met so many nice people there.
