4 Fun Workouts in DTLA That Don’t Require a Gym Membership

Way better than the treadmill

Going to the gym can sometimes feel like such a chore. Luckily, there are plenty of opportunities to get a great workout without stepping foot in a gym. Here are four no-gym workouts in DTLA to add to your exercise routine.

MVMT Theory Fitness and Dance Classes

MVMT Theory, the hip hop and fitness pop-up now has a new studio inside ROW DTLA, and with their new studio comes new class offerings. This beginner friendly fitness and dance studio offers classes that are guaranteed to be the most fun you can have in one hour. Take the free (!!!) “phys ed” class on Sundays at 10a.m. which includes an easy to follow dance warm up, some outdoor jogging (go at your own pace), and then a mini yoga session. Stay for “hip hop and brunch” at 11a.m. Learn some fun and easy choreography, and enjoy the mimosas after class.

Why get on the stairmaster when there are actual stairs to climb? The Bunker Hill steps are located in front of the US Bank Tower. These 294 steps connect Hope to 5th Street. Run up one side of the divider and down the other. And when you start to feel like your glutes are on fire, take a break and enjoy the scenery, or refuel at any of the cafes along the way.

Take spin class outside and hop on a metro bike. With stations all over DTLA, it’s super easy to get a bike and go. You can purchase a monthly or yearly pass here. But if you don’t want the long-term commitment, just walk up to any of the stations, and all trips are just $3.50/30 minutes.
