Circuit Works Sucks 6/27/2011

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. more

WOW! WOW! WOW!!! 4/14/2011

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!! more

good gym, bad policies 11/15/2010

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! Not cool. more

Circuit Works rocks! 5/23/2010

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!!!! Pros: staff, locations, intense workout, fun more

Best workout EVER! 7/15/2008

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!!!!!! more

A whole new level!!!! 5/26/2008

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. more

Best 1-hr. workout ever 8/20/2007

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. Pros: Varied schedule & times more

Brilliant Concept! 8/7/2007

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. Pros: Many classes each day, convenient location, knowledgeable staff more

A Great Workout... and time flys by! 8/4/2007

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! Pros: Great Motivating Staff! more

Best complete workout you'll ever get! 8/1/2007

If you want to become healthy and strong, stay in shape, shed a few pounds or loose a great deal of weight...Circuitworks is the place for you. In one hour you will accomplish more than in a half an hour of cardio, followed by an hour with a personal trainer. Circuitworks offers a complete workout combining strength training and cardio in a one hour session...your investment will be worth it! more

Seriously - THIS IS A WORKOUT! 7/31/2007

Okay... so I need someone to push me and I like a little competition. This is such a perfect setup for me. No set night which is an advantage over a personal trainer... I go when I can and I pay when I go. NICE. When I go I workout so hard that sometimes I feel like I am going to pass out which is a good thing. I LOVE THIS PLACE! I'm thinking I'm burning about 1200 calories in an hour. The best 25 bucks I spend each day. RUN, don't walk... more

fantastic workout 7/30/2007

You just have to try it yourself to completley understand what a truly amazing workout it is. The classes are fun, challenging and constantly changing, so no early burn out. All the instructors are kind but dont let you get away with being lazy. Commit to a package and you will see a difference fast, not to mention you will feel guilty when too much time slips by. It has a wonderful neighborhood attitude with a cutting edge vibe.... more

They'll inspire you to kick it up a notch 7/30/2007

I heard good things about this place, but was still skeptical. I was an all american track althlete and have had my share of super intense workouts. It takes a lot to challenge me, even years after retiring from competitive sports. But...Rapheal did it. I was fully wiped at the end of the class. It's very high paced. You change exercises every few minutes so you don't get bored. And he (& his staff) are great at giving each person attention throughout the class. He checks your form constantly throughout the class, will inspire you to go up in weight and is great at keeping you in the game mentally. One thing to note...bring a water bottle. you're bound to sweat and you absolutely dont have time to run to a fountain in between exercises. if you forget, you can buy a bottle there. it's also a bargain for what you get, ie, very personalized training,....but more more costly than a gym like equinox. Pros: intense workout in a small group format, coaches inspire you and correct your form, clean brand new gym, on hip street Cons: no parking, pricey if compared to monthly gym membership more

Really Really Great Workout 7/30/2007

This workout has been a lifesaver. I recently had a baby and could not loose the last few pounds. Within a week of Circuit works I saw such a difference. Now I am truely addicted to this high energy hour. I love it. Pros: great staff, convienently located more

The best work out! 7/29/2007

Circuit works provides the best work out. There are several classes daily which makes it convenient. The equipment are new, modern and most importantly, very clean. Raphael and his staff are friendly and motivating. I definitely recommend it. more

Excellent Place to get fit 7/28/2007

My girlfriend and I signed up for Circuit Works about three weeks ago. In those three weeks I have felt more fit than any other time of my life. The staff there is very friendly and want you to push yourself to get the most out of the workout. They offer a variety of different workouts every hour which lets you have flexibility with everything else going on. I believe one of the best things about Circuit Works is that you can go in and have a different workout every time, so you will not get bored with the same old workout day after day. The quality of the routine is another five stars. It really is like having a personal trainer who's doing their best to make sure you have the best possible workout each visit. I would definitely recommend Circuit Works to whoever is thinking about joining a gym. It is a little more expensive than a conventional gym but well worth it. more

fantastic 7/27/2007

It's the most efficient use of workout time and the results are great. It's fast-paced, so the hour passes quickly. I look forward to going every time. It's worth every penny. more

Fast, effective pain, no gain. 7/27/2007

I am competitve and like to be the best at whatever I do. Having the stations set-up with the cardio machines in between sets made me want to do the most and best at all the stations in comparison to the others in the group. I worked so hard, I thought I was going to throw-up; just like the first time we were required to run the mile in 5th grade and I tried to sprint the whole way to beat the boys. I was sore the next day and my abs were tight. I loved that feeling!! The instructors are positive and right were you need them when you start to realize you forgot how to do that station. They push you to the limit you need to be pushed. Great workout!! Pros: Fast, effective Cons: A bit pricey, but cheaper and possibly more effective than having a trainer more

Best 1 hour work out on the westside 7/27/2007

I love it! For a hyper-efficient work out, you can't beat it. I would NEVER work out that hard on my own, and Raphael and staff are charming (as they add 5lbs to your squats with a smile). Pros: good vibe, tough work out more
