I love this place! I don't understand how people can say that the trainers are rude or its like highschool. I found it to be a very friendly environment. The trainers are tough but that's their job. I have never heard them say anything insulting to anyone. They do give you corrections if you are not doing things properly. They are so knowledgable and helpful. They really do want to see you succeed with your weightloss goals. Honestly, I'm usually very uncomfortable around crowds of strangers but I do not feel that way here. I also don't find it rude if they drink a cup of coffee in front of me. Big deal. I don't get how that is unprofessional. All I can say is that if you are serious about loosing weight this is the place for you.

It's a new year, so you're ready to get in shape, right? Unless you are really desperate, (i.e. you have zero fitness knowledge, lack self-respect, RPM is right across the street from where you live and you don't have a car) I cannot recommend this gym. Boot camp is extremely expensive for a group class. The least the instructors could do is show up on time. They don't. Ironically, students who arrive late (later than them?) are charged five bucks or some small yet hypocritical amount like that. And because they just rolled up half asleep and unprepared, they have to make their coffee, which they will then get off the bike they should be instructing you from and drink it in front of you. It appears too much to ask for them to do their personal routine on their own time and then show up ready to teach. It's disrespectful and arrogant and shows a lack of gratitude for their clients. They bring to mind so many ""experienced"" trainers in Los Angeles who have knowledge of health and wellness and use that to intimidate those who don't, but because they have been in the business of fitness a long time they suffer from severe burnout and lack sincere enthusiasm for YOUR workout. If you ask too many questions they get mean and defensive and resort to bullying tactics which is not the same as instilling discipline. Anyone who pays their dues and shows up 5 days a week at 6 am deserves better. I won't even comment on the ""nutrition"" aspect of the camp which is a joke. They also take people out of class to ""weigh in"" which will waste even more of your class time, instead of doing it before or after. They try to cram it all in during what is presented up front as ""workout"" time. It's not rocket science and of course if you eat healthy and work out 5 times a week for 90 minutes you will most likely see results, depending on what your base line was before you got there.

Pros: working out is better than not working out

Cons: poor quality of professionalism. instructors are burned out.

From what I have read, the negatives seem to at least equal if not outweigh the positive feedback of this place. I will definitely stay away. Sounds like the owners have abuse issues and take them out on their clients. Also sounds like they are harder on people than people are on themselves.

Cynthia and Karyn,

I just want to thank you for everything you have given to me over this last year... renewed energy, a new outlook on health, a renewed confidence, a new body, a new appreciation for gooooood music... among other things!

Because of the encouraging and challenging environment you create I have lost 60lbs so far and i plan on loosing more. For the first time in a long time, i find it fun to go to the gym. I have met so many new people that I can now call friends, who encouraged me along the way. I love how everyone encourages each other! You are generous and giving with your knowledge of the body and health.

its been a real blessing to have you and RPM in my life. this is a long term relationship.

I've lost 60lbs at RPM Fitness Studio since Sept. 2008. It has been hard work, but with the help of Cynthia and Karyn I have managed to look HOT just in time for summer. I tried going to popular chain gyms (you know which ones) and none of those gyms can compare. These women are very motivational, caring, and determined to make you a work out lover. You will never find another spinning studio like this.

When I spin I sweat like a badger in mating season and sometimes after a ""lost"" Ray Milland weekend, my bike has the sweet, yet pungent smell of a brewery but I know that after three songs in to an RPM spin workout I'll be as sober as a nun (I assume they're sober). So what am i saying here as I ride headlong into my 60th birthday? RPM Fitness Studio is the absolute tip top place to get into the best shape of your life and meet some terrific people along the way. Come on down and watch the badger sweat!

Pros: Best Spin workout in the known world

I first camp to RPM to take Bootcamp. I religiously showed up on time, and worked my tail off. There were always members who were late, didnt show up and complained it was too hard or that the girls were mean.\r
STFU I say, if you want to be pampered go to a spa. I was the most fit I have ever been in my life during that time. I now take spinning and find a certain warmth and commrodorie with most of the members. When I am gone for a bit they all ask where I have been. I miss my spin pals. Most are so warm and friendly even though we all are really different as individuals from actors to moms to screaming cowgirls like me. I almost hate to say what a great place it is cause then maybe too many people will come and I wont get a bike...:-)\r
If you love spinning, need one on one training, or need a combo of bootcamp and pilates.. this place is a gem in the valley. RPM rocks!!

Cons: wished there was still spin/sculp

Karen and Cynthia are the perfect combination, helping you get back into shape and taking control of your life again. One of the many great things about this place is that Karen and Cynthia work really hard at getting you to work hard simply because they care. Their passion for healthier living is nothing short of inspiring, infectious and educational. Not only will you lose the weight that you couldn't lose on your own, you will also learn about nutrition and how to listen to your body and it's reaction to what you eat. You will meet many people that are in the same boat as you. This is very important because it also provides a built in support system resulting in a camaraderie amongst one another. You walk out many pounds lighter feeling better about your self then you have done in years and you will do so while gaining a bunch of new friends. RPM Fitness Studio has now become my home away from home. I am living proof because I lost 50 lbs in 10 weeks! That's right 50 lbs!

WOW! I do not even know where to begin with this but here goes! I am a loyal RPM spinner going on 10 years now. I have tried everything out there from yoga to personal training and this place is far superior to them all. Yes, the owners are tough and Yes the results are worth it...this place is not for the sensitive or thin skinned, there are ""gyms"" out there for those types who want to go at a snails pace of fitness. If you want fast results or are type ""A' in personality, come on down!!! and bring a sweat towel...

Don't believe any of the negative comments written unless you're just not serious about getting in shape. If you are truly serious about getting in shape and can handle hearing the truth about what you need to do, then RPM is for you. Cynthia and Karyn are knowledgeable and motivating. I have been going to RPM for 5 years now and have done Bootcamp (the first time I lost 25 lbs. after my first child), spin classes, pilates, pilates beats and bodybarre. They are all great and every spin instructor is wonderful. You will never find a spin class that focuses more on your form which is the only way you'll see results. There are many choices out there, so if RPM is not for you, then don't come. Not only are the owners and instructors great, but I've met so many nice people there.

Pros: Owners, instructors, bootcamp, all classes

Cons: Bootcamp is expensive but worth it - also no classes in the middle of the day.

.

The mananagement at this place ruins it; some of the teachers are great (Derrick esp), but the owners inexplicably favor certain students and insult others that are way more fit and better at the class. I don't get it unless they are friends with those people. It creates an atmosphere of hostility and unfairness. It's bizarre.

I started spining at RPM September 2005 and lost 15-20lbs in all the stuborn areas. Prices are high but you pay for what you get and find that it was the going rate at other locations. Karen and Cythina are hard on us but all for the good! I learned they had my best interest weeks after spining there. RPM was where I would just let it all go. I released my stressed from work and home at RPM. Unfortunately because of the prices I stop going and joined a gym and gained all the weight back maybe more. This place worked for me and once my finances are better I will be going back.

The best studio for spinning; I have being Spinning at RPM for many years;the instructors are very professional and most important they make sure you are spinning correctly. I have visited many studios and none have the knowledge and experience that Cinthia and Karen do(owners).\r
Recently I injured my knee playing tennis and my recovery went fast due to the interest and suggestions from the owners. I LOVE THEM. This is a serious studio so it might not be for sensitive people.\r

I love RPM. I understand where other people are coming from who didn't care for the studio and its owners though. This is a boutique gym, it isn't for everyone and isn't trying to be. The only time I am ""picked on"" as others put it (I wouldn't though) is when I am not putting in my all. Cynthia, Karyn (the owners) and all the other instructors make it clear that there are high expectations. Additionally, I've been to a lot of fitness studios where the instructors are harsh. I haven't been to very many that as soon as the class is over you chat with them for a while. Everyone is caring and helpful. I want to go work out everyday which never happened before. \r
This is the first physical activity I have ever done that is not a competitive sport that I have kept up with. The results are almost immediate. Those gross fat blobs on my back that appeared whenever I put on a bra when away within two weeks. My muffin tops are now muffinette tops. If I listened to their nutritional advice I know I'd be even farther along now. \r
I don't do bootcamp but I do go to spin classes at least four times a week. Tim and Steven are great in the morning. All of the instructors are great, actually! \r
The other classes are good too. There is no more yoga which is a bummer, but Body Barre (think Cardio Barre) kicks my butt. I hear great things about Body Beats (upper body) and Pilates is great. \r
Before you take your first spin class do a week or two of core. It can hard on the back otherwise. If you do take a class don't try to push yourself too hard the first time. Don't expect to get ""out of the saddle"" for very long the first day. Also, take one of Karyn or Cynthia's classes the first time to get the correct positions and then don't take their class again until you're really strong. \r
It's fun if you give it your all. If you need teachers with kit gloves go somewhere else. If you want people who believe in you, you've found the place to go.

Pros: Great teachers, great people, great classes, great parking

Let me start by saying that I have done almost every fitness activity there is, ballet for ten years, yoga on and off for 20, surfing, aerobics, spinning, pilates, fencing and on and on. I signed up for the boot camp at RPM and it was terrible. It was disorganized, expensive, boring and repetitive. The two ladies who run the Boot Camp have good intentions I am sure but they are very misguided. I thought it would be fun in an inspired army kind of way but it was not. The ladies were very disrespectful , abusive and negative. They would say things like ""if you cant do this you will never accomplish anything in your life."" We would listen to the same music during spinning every day, run on a not safe area on the road, the "" nutrition counseling"" consists of them telling you to ""eat turkey and salad"" . I could really go on and on. I wanted to quit after a week but stayed on just to be able to come home and tell my boyfriend everyday a new abusive thing that was said to someone in the class. I have never found a fitness class/studio as bad as this and trust me I have been to a ton of them.

I have been taking the spin classes at RPM for 6 months now and I haven't looked anywhere else since i found this wonderful place. From the moment you walk in the door the lovely girls help you with your shoes, getting you on your bike and making sure you are perfectly comfortable. The classes really get you moving and I feel I am getting a better workout than i've anywhere i've been before. I can't give enough praise to the girls there for helping me lose over 30lbs. Since then I have also been taking the yoga classes after the spin classes and they are the best thing ever. The small class sizes are fantastic as the intstructors really get hands on with you and I really feel the difference. I will never go back to the generic gym yoga classes I was taking before. THANK YOU RPM!!!

I was looking for a gym and came across the RPM website...looked fantastic!\r
To make a long story short THIS GYM IS AWFUL..not the environment it is actually quite lovely, but the attitude of one of the owners is horribly RUDE. I wish I had come to this website before I joined the boot camp and read the prior negative comments. It appears that the RUDE, CONFRONTATIONAL manner is a problem for this place.\r
I 100% whole heartedly would not recommend this gym to anyone other than maybe someone I do not like:)

I cannot say enough good things about RPM. I am a person who has never been an athlete, and always felt uncomfortable in traditional gyms. So that has kept me from being fit and enjoying the benefits of exercise. I went to RPM and was greeted warmly by the receptionist who explained the process to me and helped me get started with spinning shoes and a bottle of water. Several members of the spinning class and associate instructors were kind enough to teach me the proper way of getting on the spinning bicycle and the proper posture. The class itself was amazing, fun, difficult and all the while one of the owners, Karyn, was coming to check on me and keeping the class pumped up with amazing energy and instruction. After a few spinning classes I came back for Pilates with the other owner, Cynthia. This is truly one of the most difficult things I've done in my life but Cynthia focuses on each person individually and makes sure you are doing the moves correctly. So challenging and fun and rewarding, and everyone there really knows their stuff, and you get the feeling you are part of a family. The parking situation is awesome - they provide spinning shoes, towels and bottles of water for good prices - it always smells lovely in there with candles lit. It's also very clean and there are plenty of sanitary wipes to keep the mats and equipment that way. I would recommend RPM to anyone who asked me about it and I'm so glad I discovered this place.

Pros: instructors, schedule, value, cleanliness

i read the reviews on this website and thought RPM sounded great. So I signed up. It was a bit of a relief to read the prior post expressing almost everything I felt also. The owners are confrontational ready to argue with you about everything. The main woman I was working with was abrasive and when you were in the classes the instructors would make rude embarassement comments about your body in front of the other people in the ""boot camp"". It truly was a waste of my time and my money as well as a very negative experience overall! It was an environmentI felt to be very unpleasant and not conducive to a fitness studio claiming to want to help people get into shape.

The main woman I was working with was abrasive and when you were in the classes the instructors would make rude embarassement comments about your body in front of the other people in the ""boot camp"". It truly was a waste of my time and my money as well as a very negative experience overall! It was an environmentI felt to be very unpleasant and not conducive to a fitness studio claiming to want to help people get into shape.

I read the reviews on this site and since I lived close by, I signed up for the bootcamp course. While I'll give the owners kudos for their knowledge on nutrition and fitness, I found the overall experience to be very unpleasant. They employ bullying tactics during the course of the classes (which are reasonably priced, but not when you consider how large the group you train with will be), they are prone to public humiliation of participants, and also lacked the know how to deal with injuries while still providing results. \r
\r
If you need to just get off the couch and kick start a fitness program, this may be the program for you. They'll teach you how to eat correctly for your body and the exercises are sufficient for weight loss if your starting from scratch. However, if you are already fit and may have some of the injuries athletes generally do, this experience will probably also prove to be a disappointment. I would burn approx. 600 calories in a 90 minute session where as during an hour with my trainer, I would burn well over 800 calories. \r
\r
In addition, the group sizes are pretty large for this format. There is very little personal attention (except for their favorites who are repeat clients), but when it comes, it feels abusive and excessive within the group format (no one wants to be yelled at when its 6 in the morning, especially when its not constructive and in front of a number of strangers). \r
\r
I say, save your money and hire a personal trainer. I did and actually want to get up and be there at 6 am whereas I dreaded showing up for this ""experience""\r
\r
**Also, note that they are REALLY particular about being on time and employ tactics like locking the door 5 minutes to 6 or charging you five dollars in addition to the class costs. It was like a return to my old Catholic school...No Thanks!

Pros: Parking

Cons: Not for people who are already fit, owners employ childish tactics, don't work around injuries

I tried a few other health clubs before I found RPM. Cynthia and Karen are energetic and enthusiastic, but more importantly, they're kind and caring. Whether you are the type of person who loves to exercise or you dread the necessity of it (like me), you will feel comfortable at RPM. They always welcome each customer with a smile. Besides the spinning classes, which are great, they also have pilates classes and personal training. They also recently bought all new spinning bikes, which is nice. The only recommendation I have is to bring earplugs because the music gets kind of loud during the classes. Other than that, it's great!

I took the boot camp, which was a bit expensive, but a lot of fun! They offer 2 different boot camps, one is more harder and earlier than the other on. I learned alot and did get results. Although, (when you take the boot camp) they have a food journal that you write in and hand in, but they never wrote any comments in it to say what was bad or good. So I felt like i didn't get my money's worth.

I went to the club expecting an adverage spinning class, boy was I wrong. I attended the 10.00am Sunday morning spinning class. I have been spinning fpr over 6 years. This instructors music, energy and intense work out brought my spinning experince to a whole new level. What a great, friendly private club. Highly recommend. They also offer Bootcamp and private training. High end feeling to the whole place.
