Circuit Works Sucks – In my opinion, this business and its leaders are disorganized and unprofessional. When we bought two sets of passes to take five classes, we thought it would be as easy as advertised to get the classes going. We called up on a Wednesday and scheduled an appointment for Saturday morning. When we showed for the class, 20 minutes early, we were told that the class was full and they only reserved one spot. This was untrue. The representative, Maureen, was dismissive and rude. After talking to the manager, Justin, we were told we could come the following morning for the 9:30 a.m. class. While disappointed, we confirmed the time with Maureen for 9:30 a.m. on Sunday. When we showed up the following morning at 9:15 a.m. for the class, we were again told the class was full and in fact started at 9:15 a.m. Either Maureen the previous day was negligent in confirming the start time or intentionally misled us. In either case, after wasting two mornings and dealing with some of the dumbest people I think I have ever met, I can say, in my opinion, that this is a terribly run business that makes false promises and engages in unfair business practices. I will get my money back. I would not recommend this business to anyone.
Thank you for your comment. We operate on a first come-first serve basis. Contrary to your claim, on both occassions the offer to reserve a spot in the class was declined thus running you the risk of not being let into the class. We did make several attempts to remedy the situation, although those again were denied. We hope that you and others understand the necessity to maintain certain policies to ensure that all of our clients (new and old) can access classes equally.
WOW! WOW! WOW!!! – Best workout I have ever had!!! The staff is AMAZING! Raphael and Alba are AMAZING! Everything about this exercise routine is AMAZING! I can't get enough and plan on continuing these classes for years to come. I highly suggest going to Circuit Works!!
good gym, bad policies – some of the exercises were questionable, but most shocking...classes are a whopping $28 bucks per person...for a good ten folks a class...yet the trainers get a measly $10 an hour!
Thanks for the feedback. Unfortuantely the trainer rate is incorrect, our trainers are paid more than that, and the level of involvement of the workout is the reason our classes are $28. It takes a lot for us to run a group session, a factor we are working on improving so that we may offer the most competitve rates possible to our members. That said, all of our packages average out to a significantly lower rate.
Circuit Works rocks! – I've never encountered a workout that I enjoy more than this class. It is hands down the best workout I've ever experienced. Raphael, Alba, and the staff are amazing and make you feel like part of the Circuit Works family. My friends that I've brought with me have all loved it and have come back for more. I can't get enough of it and I can tell you that you will not get a better workout anywhere in LA...Circuit Works delivers results. And there's a new Brentwood location!!!!
Best workout EVER! – Circuit works is amazing! It is the best workout you will get anywhere in los angeles and your body will thank you. It is very fast-paced, fun, high energy class with great music. The classes are small enough that you feel a part of the "circuit works family" and you get attention from the trainers, but they are big enough not break your budget. I used circuit works nutrition and workout program and lost 40 lbs in 4 months!!!!!!
A whole new level!!!! – This is thee craziest, most awesome workout ever! I've worked out for years and have never experienced a workout to this degree. The music and amazing teachers keep you motivated and in the right state of mind.
This is a must DO!!!
Circuit Works is GREAT – Circuit Works is great-
Knowledgable trainers with helpful suggestions. All of the benefits of working out with a personal trainer & being in the group exercise environment. It is a great place to go to learn more about health & fitness, get in shape & meet people.
I tell everyone about it- it is a great concept, especially for those who are short on time.
Being somebody that gets bored with workouts, this is the place for me- I love that each workout changes according to the day / time of the class.
Do your body a favor today- visit Circuit Works & have fun burning it off!
Best 1-hr. workout ever – Super workout -- Raphael kicks it up and keeps it at that level until the brutal end. You go from aerobic to anaerobic every few minutes -- different weight exercise every time. And the last 5 minutes are intense stomach exercises. Schedule is varied every day and the time goes by superfast. I recommend buying the package. This can fit into anyone's busy schedule.
Brilliant Concept! – I've belonged to several gyms over the years, worked out with personal trainers, done circuit training in a semi-private setting, taken yoga and pilates classes, but nothing compares to Circuitworks and the energy of Raphael's well-thought out program. The classes contain everything necessary to keep you in tip-top shape, and each session is different from the last, preventing the boredom that sometimes comes with the "same old" routine at other gyms. There are so many classes each day and the flexibility of on-line sign up makes it a very user-friendly! Having taken a bit of time off from exercise due to (gym) burn-out, I've been searching for the perfect class, and though I've only been going for a short while, Circuitworks definitely fits the bill.
A Great Workout... and time flys by! – I have tried all sorts of different exercise programs and Ciruitworks is the only one I've found that offers a "one stop shopping" workout experience. During a one hour class, we warm up, stretch and get right into it, alternating back and forth in one minute intervals of cardio and weight training. My heart rate stays up (so I know I'm getting a great workout) and the variety of moving to different weight stations and cardio machines really makes the time fly by. The best part... I don't get bored! Unlike working out at my other gym, I'm not watching the clock. Every class ends with an awesome abs session and, before you know it, it's over. This really is the perfect workout!
