Las Vegas is known for its world-class dining, nightlife and shopping, but it’s also home to a plethora of innovative fitness classes. From a unique, heated twist on Pilates to indoor cycling in a club-like atmosphere, there’s a wide variety of high-intensity workouts both on and off The Strip guaranteed to undo some of the damage wrought from Vegas-style overindulging.
Down and Dirty Bootcamp | TruFusion Summerlin
What is it? Imagine a boot camp class taking place in the middle of an early-2000s hip-hop music video. The R-rated Down and Dirty Bootcamp pushes your mobility, endurance and resilience to their limits through the combination of yoga, Pilates and kettlebells—all in a heated room.
What makes it different? This class provides the perfect opportunity to shake what your mama gave you—in yoga pants—while burning hundreds of calories.
Should I try it? If you equally love squats and twerking, this class is where it’s at.
SWEAT60 | The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
What is it? This boot camp-style group class consists of high-intensity interval training with boxing, plyometrics, strength training, and core stability exercises. Each 60-minute class is broken down into 14 different one-minute circuits designed to confuse your muscle groups and amp up changes to your body.
What makes it different? A fitness class in a hotel is already unexpected. SWEAT60 is led by multi-certified instructors that customize the workout daily. You won’t find a challenging group class like this at your local gym.
Should I try it? If you’re a Vegas local or a hotel guest at The Cosmopolitan, and you need to work off all those calories consumed at Momofuku, then most definitely.
THE RIDE 50 | THE RIDE
What is it? An exhilarating cardio workout focused on improving your fitness level and overall well-being, this class is led by a dynamic instructor with the music perfectly synced to the exercises to keep you motivated throughout the entire 50-minute workout.
What makes it different? Bored by the idea of a stationary bike? You won’t be at THE RIDE. Cyclers experience a full-body workout complete with partial pushups, oblique exercises and lightweight intervals in a club-like environment. And after working up a sweat, enjoy fresh towel service and a refreshing shower with luxurious Malin+Goetz beauty products.
Should I try it? Whether you hate or love cardio, this 50-minute class makes for an enjoyable, calorie-burning ride. This is the only type of cardio that makes you sad when it’s over.
