WundaBar Pilates

Multiple Locations

With multiple locations around LA (Studio City, Hollywood, Pasadena and more), The WundaBar Approach combines beautiful biomechanics and traditional Pilates with efficient movement, exceptional flow and a cardio-intense pace. The WundaFormer–a Pilates Reformer, WundaChair, Jumpboard and Ballet Bar all-in-one – brings four powerful apparatuses into reach for a wide audience and into the group class environment where previously, they had no practical application as separate pieces of equipment. The studios have a new client offer of 5 classes for $49.

 

P.Volve 

608 Westmount Dr, West Hollywood, CA 90069

You’ll even enjoy it. First-time studio goers will receive two classes for the price of one ($32).

Myodetox

8354 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood

When you experience an injury or pain, or you want to actively perform better, it’s difficult to understand who you should see. Vinh Pham, a physical therapist, and Scott Marcaccio, his patient, both understood this was a frustration many people shared. Knowing there was a better alternative, Myodetox was started in 2015 – a clinic with a team of expert therapists that leverage their system of manual therapy and movement programming designed to get you out of pain and moving at your full potential. Athletes and workout enthusiasts alike were thrilled to hear that Pham chose West Hollywood to be his first US-based location. 60-minute initial physical therapy sessions start at $95.
