There’s no denying that West Hollywood is one of the fittest places on earth. You’d be hard-pressed to find a block in the city with some sort of gym on it.

And as much as we personal trainers think the best workouts happen inside a fitness studio, we have to concede that we southern Californians also happen to have some of the best weather on earth.

So if you have to skip your workout at Virtuo for some sunshine then may we suggest you take your fitness on two feet at one of these great hikes the LA area has to offer.

Wisdom Tree – Located just to the side of the iconic Hollywood sign, this 4-mile hike will give you a great view of the iconic landmark as well as the city. Make sure to bring water and prepare for a steep climb to start. We promise the views are worth it!

Echo Mountain – Who wouldn’t enjoy a hike up to the site of a turn of the century resort complete with amazing views? The 5 miles round trip is a small price to pay for the view and the memories. 

Solstice Canyon – This 3-mile loop located in the hills off PCH features ocean views, a shaded stream an abandoned building. Make sure you come ready for your photo op!

Bridge to Nowhere – In true California fashion, a one-time road-building project was abandoned leaving an impressive arch bridge sitting 5 miles from the nearest road. The 10-mile round trip trek is relatively flat and has the added bonus of the opportunity to watch bungee jumpers from the bridge on weekends.

Mt. Baldy – Official Mt. San Antonio, this grueling 11-mile trek will put your fitness to the test, but the views for miles around are well worth it. If you find yourself totally out of gas, you can always take the chair lift down. We promise we won’t tell if you do.

While any of these hikes offers a great way to get some fitness outdoors, as always we’d love to get to help you with your goals in person.

And our staff of master trainers is ready and waiting in our private studio space to help you with weight loss, toning, and more.
