“This studio is in a convenient location near both the 101 and us 60 freeways, which allows my husband and I easy access from work or home.
The interior is sun-lit, well kept, and the space is carefully designed, allowing for an excellent gym environment.
Access to the outdoors provides flexibility in training regime.
It is spacious, which means ample room for a variety of workout routines, but it is still sized intimately enough to keep the “personal” in personal training. An abundance of parking brings added convenience.
All around this is an ideal location for fitness training.”
