Santa Barbara Athletic Club
With over 100 weekly group-fitness classes, there's something for everyone (and everyone's scattered schedules) at this fitness center that's nothing like your average gym. With a zen-like pilates studio and sweeping mountain views, getting your tush to the gym will no longer feel like a chore.

Olympic athletes swear by it, but trust us when we say you don't need years of training to get through CrossFit in one piece. This butt-kicking program requires you to workout three to five days per week, and the sets are intense and short, taking about 5-15 minutes to complete. The explosive exercises target every muscle in your body, so get ready to be transformed, head-to-toe.
CrossFit Pacific Coast, 220 East Cota Street (between Santa Barbara and Garden streets); 805-845-4171.
Power Of Your Om Yoga Studio
Did you know your yoga mat can double as a dance floor? Well, during Power Of Your Om Yoga Studio's Shake Your Asana class, students have been known to get groovy after a few bow poses. Plus, the 75-minute total body conditioning course, Body Bootcamp, has been known to change lives.

Yes, treadmills and lifting weights will help you get fit. But, sometimes we forget that it's not just pumping iron that builds a better you — it's also about taking care of your mind and body, too. Attend a nutritional consultation or arrange an appointment with a health coach (so much more than personal trainer!) and you'll get even closer to achieving your dream bod.
Body-You-Love, 209 Gray Avenue (between Montecito and Yanonali streets); 805-896-1137.
