This isn’t CrossFit, folks. Our group training is for ALL LEVELS and provides safe, dynamic, full body workouts that will get you in ridiculously good shape and prepare you for any physical challenge you may face.

We combine HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) with full body exercises and heart rate monitoring to maximize fat burning and the “after burn effect” in which your metabolism continues to be elevated long after your workout ends. This results in more burned calories and a leaner physique.

My experience with Arena has been AMAZING. I don’t plan on ever leaving hahaha.

Doing the TDC was a huge accomplishment for me. Mostly because it’s the first thing I’ve done for myself in a very long time!!

I had many obstacles such as moving, not having a kitchen for a week, working full-time, being a full-time student and driving to Northridge and Encino from Santa Clarita for most of the TDC. Regardless I was determined to get healthy. I’d workout 4 to 5 days a week at Area Fitness Northridge at 6AM every time!! (Sometimes 5 min late but I was there) William helped me a lot. I couldn’t have done it without his help. He would always hand me the heavier weights. (Thanks Will) Even though I felt like I couldn’t go on with my workout I kept pushing myself and telling myself that I’m in it to win.

Although I didn’t win I’m extremely happy with my results (and compliments I receive lol) I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything else. Thank you Arena Fitness for handing me the tools I need to continue on this journey of self love and health and for everything you all do!!!!!!

“I have been going to Arena Fitness for almost a year now and it has been completely life changing!
I just completed my second round on the kick start program and have lost even more weight and inches, overall. I have always struggled with my weight and hadn’t really understood or embraced how proper nutrition and exercise could transform not only my body, but my mental and emotional health, as well.
I was always the customer that bought into fad diets and quick fixes….until joining my Arena Fitness family.
There is so much that I love about this gym, but I think what I have appreciated the most is the amount of care and attention they provide to their members who experience any sort of physical limitation. There are always alternatives or modifications provided which were motivating and helped rid myself of all the excuses I had for not being able to work out properly or reach my fitness goals. Not only has my injury improved, I am now able to do certain exercises that I was certain I could never do.
In addition to all of these amazing transformations, my self-confidence has increased and I am constantly pushing myself from my comfort zone. I even did my first OCR (Obstacle Course Race) which is something I NEVER could have imagined.
Thank you Arena!”

“I came to Arena Fitness Encino for Strength Training over a year ago. This year I decided to take the Take Down Challenge (TDC) to enhance and improve on the strength training. The TDC was fun even though it was hard work, I met my goals, the staff was always there to answer questions and for encouragement. Thank you for being my Champions….onto TDL now.”

“I’ve officially done the TDC twice and love it! It definitely started as a challenge, but turned into a lifestyle change. I couldn’t have done it without Stacey and the Arena Fitness team! Between the weekly check ins, 4-5 days of training and group classes and information posted on the pages and emails, everyone’s really made an impact on changing my mindset for a healthy lifestyle. For someone that has a crazy work schedule and works in restaurants, learning how to make the right choices is exactly what I needed! Thank you so much for the continuous leadership, passion and motivation!”

“I can’t say enough about my experience with the 28-Day Balanced Habits Kick Start Program which I participated in Autumn 2017 through Arena Fitness in Encino.  A little over a month ago, I was feeling exhausted and stuffed into my wardrobe.   My eating habits were based on convenience – processed foods (nightly M&Ms and frequent fast food runs).   Of course, I wanted to look and feel better, but I also was motivated to take steps to avoid taking cholesterol medication if possible.  As much as I wanted quick results, I knew that I needed help to get in balance and to stay there.   
Though it sounds cliche, Balanced Habits really has taught me how to eat by emphasizing a combination of proteins, carbs, and fats and teaching me to focus on eating clean and ground – based whenever possible.  The individualized plan based on my age, frame, and lifestyle has been invaluable information and like nothing I ever experienced as a fallen Lifetime Weight Watcher.    I don’t think I was eating often enough before.  Certainly, I was not feeding my body what it needed but was feeding bad habits. 
I’m happy to report I never felt hungry on this program.   Indeed, it was sometimes difficult to eat as much as I was supposed to consume.    Yes…I did initially experience junk and sugar cravings, but I got through those times (gone by end of week 2 for me) in relatively easy fashion by replacing the “bad” habit with movement (cardio walking and semi-private strength training sessions at Arena).  The combination of guidance from Arena Nutrition  Director, Stacey Garcia, eating balanced, and moving with the trainers’ help, really took my results to a level I didn’t realistically expect.  As a side benefit, I don’t look as puffy and am not downing Advil because of arthritis pain.   
I started my balanced journey on Goggle searching for personal training near me.  I quickly found Arena and was impressed by the rave reviews and the online photos.   Arena is a smaller studio gym and the members in the photos looked like real, fit people.   In person, I found the Arena trainers (Daniela, Lauren. Stacey, Joe and Phillip) to be genuine and positive.  They are teaching me the how and why of strength training and adjusting moves based on my abilities and corrective needs.   And because Balance is the key here, Arena even offers a weekly yoga class (shout out to Philip). 
Arena Fitness and its members make for a welcoming community and even look to give back and support important causes.  Arena knows fitness and nutrition.  The team conveys their expertise in a friendly and open manner.    As Jonathan said when  we first talked, they care what and how we do on Day 29 and beyond.  I’m now participating in Balanced Life so that I can keep balanced!
Best wishes and thanks, Arena!”

- Dana lost 12.4 pounds of body fat on the KICK START!

I joined Arena Fitness 8 months ago after looking into several different gyms and I can say it was the best decision I could have made.   The classes are challenging and the instructors are awesome, I cannot say enough good things about them.  The atmosphere is friendly and inclusive and I truly have never been so motivated to go to the gym in my life.  The early morning classes are a perfect start to the day and still leave plenty of time for me to get to work without rushing.  They also do shred challenges throughout the year, team mud runs and weekly Sunday runs or hikes around the neighborhood.  Fantastic place!!

- Community. That’s what it’s all about.

At Arena I have found a network of professionals who care about my as an individual. They’re looking out for my best interest and are always changing their curriculum to suit the needs of their collective group as we grow. Fitness goals, nutrition goals, lifestyle changes or just getting hot for the summer festival – they will work with you and have fun while doing it. Believe it or not all you have to do is show up and try your best to follow their guidance (which seems hard for some people – so if you can do that, Arena does the rest!)

I used to work out semi-privately with Stacey but after my 2nd kid was born, I completely stopped and before I knew it, almost two years flew by without me stepping into a gym once.  My eating habits were, lets say, less than ideal so – surprise, surprise – I found myself weighing the most I had ever been in my life.  Between not fitting into a lot of my clothes and my doctor telling me my all my numbers were too high, I finally decided I needed to do something drastic to make a change.  I remembered seeing the TakeDown Challenge when I used to work out at Arena and decided I had to give it a shot.  The TDC was great because they gave you all the tools to succeed — the recipes, the precise food plan, the nutritional charts, the daily journal – and as long as you followed the course laid out for you, it was pretty simple.  The real challenge, of course, was how to avoid falling off the wagon, but for me the competition element of the TDC along with the weekly accountability of the weigh-in was exactly the kind of incentive I needed.  Stacey was great at managing expectations but also being a constant source of advice and inspiration.  Losing two pounds after the first week didn’t feel like a big accomplishment but I kept my head down and before I knew it, two pounds turned to four pounds, four pounds turned to six, and by the end of the 4 weeks, I had lost 12 pounds! Not satisfied with just losing 12 pounds and wanting to keep the momentum going, I signed up for the TakeDown Lifestyle which wasn’t a hard transition at all.  I still stuck to the plan Stacey outlined for me, still kept my check-ins with her, and it all just became part of my lifestyle, pun intended!  The great thing about TDL is that its sensible and reasonable – you can have your cheat days to keep you sane and it really is about making better eating choices and habits, hopefully for the rest of your life.  If you’re someone who is looking to make a change and get healthier, I would highly recommend the TDC and TDL – what have you got to lose, other than dropping those pounds?!?!

The TDC challenge was one that I was nervous about, yet very excited because I knew it would involve me making sacrifices to meet the end goal: lose fat pounds, gain some muscle, and kick start a lifestyle centered around my nutrition. It doesn’t help that my brother and I are starting a business dedicated to craft beer, and we knew that those delicious suds would be off the table for 28 days. The Arena Fitness team was committed to helping all of us along the way providing help, feedback, and inspiration to get us through cravings and keep us on the right track. I learned a lot about portion control, when to eat, when to drink lots of water (all the time), and that you don’t need to give up good food to lose weight and feel great. I would totally recommend this to others who are on a path of inconsistency and frustration. It helps to have people rooting for you, and I couldn’t be more happy that I completed the TDC. Eat clean, train dirty!
