Summer Workout Tips From L.A.’s Top Trainers

Photographed by Sami Drasin.
We have a love-hate relationship with working out in the summer. Yes, we can finally get off the treadmill and into the open air, but there are a lot of other things calling our names. Out-of-town wedding? No choice but to attend. After-work drinks with colleagues at a beer garden? Don't mind if we do. A Saturday lazing in the sand with a new book? Necessary.

That said, nothing motivates us like a good group fitness class — complete with plenty of swag, if at all possible. That's exactly what we got when we co-hosted SIX-Hour Burn, a series of sweat-inducing 50-minute workouts, with SIX:02 at the retailer’s Santa Monica store. And, just in case you couldn’t make it, we tapped the event’s six star trainers for their best summer workout tips. Add them into your routine — after that beach day and before happy hour, of course.
