I've been on the hunt for a new "home studio" for a little while now and I think I've finally found it in Booty Works. Back in the day (before I had two kids in two years), I used to drive around the valley to take the best classes. I don't have that kind of time and money anymore, and some of those studios are closed now (RIP Bar Method Encino and Piloxing Burbank), but Booty Works is proving to be everything I've always wanted in a fitness studio.
This studio is a one stop shop for fun and boutiquey group fitness classes (including Piloxing, yay!). So far I've taken Pound (cardio workout with drum sticks, recently featured on This Is Us), Piloxing (Pilates/boxing/dance workout, quite possibly my favorite all time super sweaty workout), and Piloxing Barre (like Piloxing, but a little more tame and incorporates barre work), and there are still a bunch of other classes I want to try.
Class times are super convenient. They have daytime, evening, and weekend classes and the class schedule differs from day to day so you can check out different classes during the same window throughout the week.
The studio is very clean and cute, with cubbies for your belongings, a changing room, shower, water dispenser and little thoughtful amenities (i.e. tampons and body lotion). Everything you need for each class is provided, so you don't have to purchase gloves for Piloxing or rip sticks for Pound or worry about bringing a yoga mat. I also appreciate the fact that they have everything you need to sanitize said equipment because I'm a germaphobe.
My main goal right now is getting my strength back and tightening up that mom bod. That being said, it can be intimidating to work out in a new environment, but they're really encouraging an ego-free environment and that helps me focus on working out without feeling self-conscious.
I read in another review that there is limited parking behind the studio. I've never actually tried to park in the back because I've always had luck finding metered street parking on Ventura, even during pretty busy parts of the day.
I definitely recommend checking out this studio if you're looking to mix up or re-engage your fitness routine. I'm having a blast!
