I have been an athlete all my life from tennis pro circuit at the age of fifteen, to mountain biking, and intense horse back riding, where I have done some stunt work. In 2005 I injured my lower back in a shooting, and ever since I have suffered chronic back pain and stiffness due to the counter response from my body to avoid further injuring. About two months ago I discover Kor and start training with Christine Hazelton understanding that in the last 4 yrs. I have to assist to therapy at he chiropractor at least three times a month; I was never able to rebound to my fitness level. Christine has been training me and I have started to ride horses again and to regain flexibility, strength, balance and physical condition. I am extremely please with the service and grateful to be able to start living a life without back chronic pain. not to mention how many voice mails I have from my chiropractor....

Pros: Best Personal Training in town

Cons: don't be scare of the psychic next door-

...is what i was looking for, and it is definitely what i found and continue to have at this GEM of a gym. Extremely knowledgeable owner Christine Hazelton and her team of trainers will custom tailor a workout suitable to your needs and WILL get you to your goal. The environment, with its immaculate surroundings and friendly staff, provides the ideal atmosphere. Been to more than several gyms here in LA and NY, definitely the BEST bar none. Be sure and to say hello to Einstein, the mascot dog who really owns the place. LOVE THIS GYM!!!!

Here's why I'm a huge fan of Kor: I love the space (it's small, hyper-functional, and really welcoming); I love the philosophy of the gym, and I love the people, especially my trainer Chris (also the owner) who I've trained with or over a decade and think is simply the best at what she does. Unlike most gyms where I feel my stress level rise as soon as i enter them (either from the overwhelming house music or the attitudinal gym staff), Kor actually makes you want to step inside. It feels like a gym sanctuary, which is a pretty neat feat.

I haven't written a CitySearch review before, but I'm out of town for a few months and I find myself MISSING MY GYM!! I'm not exactly a body builder, so this comes as quite a surprise! Kor has so much to be commended for---they've outfitted the place with an excellent array of equipment, considering the limited amount of space they have. They've got a great room for classes and another for Pilates work as well as a shower room with a spa-like atmosphere. They've decorated it well with interesting art on the walls and a relaxing garden-like space out front. But what really makes Kor, well, Kor is the staff. Others before me here on CitySearch have praised co-owners Dr. Lee and Christine Hazelton, and, obviously, they deserve a great deal of the kudos and the credit. But I must also praise the desk and site management staff--Damian, Hannah, and Megan---they are warm, kind, conscientious, and smart. And no less the trainers, all of whom are perennially friendly, cheerful, and helpful. I should also single out the trainer L.B. for praise, in that his Qi Gong classes go way above and beyond your typical gym offering. When the door closes and his classes begin, you really feel like you've entered a dojo---like you're in the presence of a master. I mustn't forget Einstein the dog---technically, he's Christine's, but it feels like he belongs to all of us. I can't explain it exactly, but he brings such a special something to the place; I look for him every time I go. As you can see, I can't say enough good things about Kor. I'll just end by saying that, in a place that can be as cold and heartless as Hollywood sometimes can, it really is nice to have a gym where everybody knows your name!

Pros: Size, friendliness, atmosphere, expertise, range of classes

Cons: parking

Okay, if it were not for Christine and her little dog Toto...no, wait... reverse that... Einstein... I would be licking butter off the plates at Dan Tana's. Okay I am not making sense. I LOVE this place, very simple, easy going and never crowded which I love. Great energy. Everyone who works at Kor is super nice and awesome other than Christine, she is the Devil. Truly a monster. But I keep going every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 7am to get abused by her, so that says something. She is great. Kor is great. For those of you who want a great work out, no jokers, and no preening, I would look no further than Kor. You won't regret it!

I LOVE this gym. I have had the opportunity of training with a couple of trainers there, and they were/are both terrific! The owner and my current trainer, Christine Hazelton, ROCKS! She is inspirational, funny and whips your a** into shape -- with quick results! The functional training approach used at Kor is empowering and teaches you how to use your body correctly in and out of the gym. The atmosphere is completely comfortable and not intimidating AT ALL. Everyone who works/trains/works out there is GREAT. I know this probably reads like an ad for the place, but i cannot recommend it enough. My experience at Kor has been transformational.

Pros: Training, Results, Clientele, Low-Key Atmosphere

Cons: None

This is where I take pilates (ewwww.) Kind of a cool place just off Melrose / LaBrea--all the basic equipment, cheap massages, accupuncture, and they have a dog who's there to say hi.

Kor is literally changing my life. I am not a huge fan of exercising at a gym but I'm even less of a fan of my flabby buttocks. So, I thought I'd give it a try. With just 8 sessions with Chris, my trainer, I can already see a difference in my body and, more importantly, with my overall well-being. The entire staff is friendly and welcoming and the lack of gym attitude adds to the really relaxed atmosphere. Oh and there's Einstein. He's a dog. Sometimes he'll make you play ball. I cannot stress enough how much Kor is NOTHING like other gyms. Highly recommended.

Pros: Small, no attitude, great trainers, dog mascot

Cons: sometimes parking isn't great

What a great experience I had with them. All the staff was wounderful, I would reccommend this place to everyone we know.Kor health and fitness should be everyones first choice.

Before trying out Kor, I held a rarely-used membership to an oversized impersonal gym where I lacked motivation because I felt intimidated by the size and atmosphere of the gym. I found myself having to wait to use certain machines and just couldn't connect myself with the whole exercise process. I soon dreaded going and after not too long, just stop going completely. I was recommended to Kor by a co-worker and now I work with a trainer there who's totally changed my outlook on fitness. I now enjoy going because I know how good I'll feel when I'm done. It's brought a positive change to my life that I just couldn't find anywhere else. The knowledgeable trainers made the switch to a healthier lifestyle easy because I now understand the science behind it. The friendly staff always remembers me and makes me feel welcome and the small, intimate setting encourages a home-like feeling. I definately don't miss the flourescent nightmare that my old gym was. At Kor, I see the same people all the time and feel comfortable there. And of course Einstein, the gym's adorable canine mascot always brings a smile to my face. Kor encourages a healthy lifestyle not just a hot bod ;) and I recommend it highly to those of you that are sick of feeling like just another credit card number.

Pros: small intimate setting, knowledgeable and motivating trainers, organic feel

Cons: just several parking spots but park on the street and the receptionist will feed your meter for you!

I have been looking for a good gym and maybe personal trainer. I looked on City Search and saw what I thought was a lot of hype. I mean how could so many people say the things they say about KOR. I just started going there and it really is all about me. The moment I walked in the front door they guy at the front desk made it all about me. I couldn't believe he wasn't just giving me a BS line. He introduced me to Chris the owner who is also a trainer. She was also all about me and what I wanted to achieve. I was introduced to a few other trainers and some of the gym menbers. I felt like they all were friends who I had always known. I saw a well known television star working out with her trainer. No one made over her. She was just an ordinary person there working out like everyone else. This is the best little secret in West Hollywood. You really do have to see it to believe it. I love it there. I guess I will take City Search as the gospel in what they say about various businesses. You guys are right on.

Pros: It really is all about you

Cons: Parking is a bit of a problem. Have to park a ways sometimes and walk. It is worth it.

I went to a professional mixer and met a guy who works at KOR. Just to be nice I went for a complimentary work out. Wow, it was the best thing I have done for myself in a long time. I now have a personal trainer who works with me to gain not only a great looking body but also one of strenght. Everyone there is really great. It is like working out with your friends. I go in the evening when it is less crowed unlike other gyms at that time of day. The only attitude there is that you can do it. Everyone help motivate you to work on yourself, body, mind and spirit. It's great. Try it.

Pros: Personal Trainers/staff & Life Coach Damian are beyond great

Cons: Parking at times

.

The trainers are great and have so much fun with what they do. The gym stays clean and has its own style that I've never seen anywhere. They have so many fun toy's to do "kor" exercises with and each trainer is so creative that you never seem to get bored with a workout. I can't imagine going to another gym, I'm addicted to this one.

If you're tired of going to places where people don't wipe up their sweat on machines or hate getting in line for them, you have to go to this gym. Super clean. LOVE the hard core "I'm going to get killer legs if it kills me" spin classes. Folks there are friendly. Oh, and they even rent out shoes for the spin classes. Protein shakes are yummy too! And the dog there is super cute. =)

I love the gym. Very low key with fun atmosphere. The staff is super friendly. So many actors and stuff and not snobby at all. It's my gym now. I was with equinox but, no more.

As most brides-to-be, I wanted to firm up for my special day. After looking for a trainer at various area gyms (some REALLY close to KOR) I knew KOR was the place for me as soon as I walked in the door. Not only was I greeted by the cutest dog of all time, I didn't see any spandex clad bodies in sight. Phew!!! Come on people, let's leave the pick-up scene to Coffee Bean! The space looks more like a hip photographers studio with its concrete floors and high ceilings than any gym around. After a six-week bride-to-be bootcamp I looked better than expected due to Christine's awesome training sessions. Plus, I had an unexpected surprise...a booty! The good kind! And my husband loves it!! Needless to say, I am still a weekly regular after 1.5 years and plan on being a member for life!

I have been taking Pilates with Akiko at KOR for the past few months and she is amazing!! Mat classes with Kristen are great too and the energy at KOR is wonderful. It is so nice to find a gym that is relaxed with great staff, and knowledgable trainers. Everyone is very helpful. It is a jewel tucked away on La Brea, the staff are warm, friendly and always laughing. Working out at KOR is effortless. Don't get me wrong, Akiko works me hard! She will definitely make you work and sweat. She also teaches an amazing spinning classes if you are looking for a cardio fix. If you have have been thinking about trying Pilates and you are looking for someone to who really knows and cares about what they do, Work with Akiko!! You will love it and the results you gets.
Highly recommend!!!

I love to go to KOR. My two daughters starting training with Chris over a year ago, and when they talked about her, I liked what I heard, so when New Years rolled around, I knew I had to try it out for myself, because I had disciplined myself to lose 30 pounds, but had 60 more to go, and I was stalled. I knew I needed help. I never thought I would go to a "trainer's gym" and have belonged to my Y for years, hardly ever going, and then stressing immensely about my weight increasing slowly over time, and feeling like I was on a lonely campaign to go nowhere. Although I was nervous about going into a specialized gym with one person working with me, and being in my 50s, Chris made me feel totally comfortable, and I started really feeling good, getting stronger, and facing my eating issues without having anyone tell me exactly what to eat. Now our family is taking the prize for most individuals registered at KOR! Other gym members and trainers are extremely friendly and supportive, without any pretensions, and one of my favorite aspects is Damien, the welcome person, who has shared much with me, and gives us all daily affirmations to carry us through. I am so happy I found such genuine people to help me. Although KOR is expensive for me, I feel I'm buying years for myself....maybe it's better than my 401K! HEY HEY!!! THANKS EVERYONE!! LOVE YOU!

I just finished a 6 week training session with Christine, the owner of Kor, and could not have been happier. I packed on the pounds over the holidays and decided to finally do something about it. I have been a member of Bally's for years and could not stand going there anymore and working on my own at home was not cutting it. After six short weeks, I not only lost inches, but more importantly body fat - 3 percentage points! There were so many work out options, I never got bored. Classes, the latest equipment and "gadgets", free weights, bands, pilates, all kinds of cardio equipment. Even massage and chiropractic care! I didn't diet either. I followed Christine's advice about eating. Just stop eating before I get full. Save the rest for later! I can eat what I want (within reason of course) and still see great results! The environment at Kor is wonderful, the gym is clean and every one is there for the same reason - to get fit. Oh, and the best part of all is I gained strength and power. I play softball and am now able to see the softball go over the infielders head. I am signing up for another 6 weeks with Christine and officially joined the gym for the next year.

Pros: Atmosphere, music, workout options, staff

Cons: A little pricey compared to some of the other gyms, but you get what you pay for!

I am not a huge fan of gyms, but Kor is the first one that I actually enjoy going to. The size is perfect, the staff is great, and the clientele is not filled with posers...just people that want to work out. Christine Hazelton is an amazing trainer and really takes your whole fitness into account. She is very knowledgable and passionate about what she does, and really enjoyable to work out with. The classes are really good and not overcrowded, and Einstein the dog roaming the gym is a great touch. I highly recommend this gym...it rocks.

I had all but given up on gyms until I walked in the door at Kor. The vibe is great, staff super-friendly, the music is even good! The training program I was given there was highly individualized - I didn't feel like it was a cookie cutter workout. I got a program designed for me, taking my injuries into consideration that was still a kick-ass workout! The gym is designed to promote both old school (think jump rope) and cutting edge (owner/trainer Christine Hazelton custom creates equiptment and excercises herself) to keep your workout fun. And just when you think you can do it anymore, Einstein, the gym rescue dog comes over for an encouraging wag of the tail to tell you you can!

I had all but given up on gyms until I walked in the door at Kor. The vibe is great, staff super-friendly, the music is even good! The training program I was given there was highly individualized - I didn't feel like it was a cookie cutter workout.

If you're looking for a gym to get serious about your work-out and NOT schmooze with hipsters, KOR is the place. Christine Hazelton is, bar none, the best trainer I've ever come across. She knows her business and she'll get you in shape without harming your body in the process. Better yet, she's not looking to land a role in a sitcom or sell you a script. She's truly passionate about health and fitness.

If you want to work out in peace and avoid the overpriced, typical LA meat markets (aka gyms) such as Crunch and 24 hour fitness....go to KOR...NOW! The trainers are great...the owners work there on-site, Einstein is adorable (the gym's rescue puppy dog), there is NO attitude (although I've seen more than one celebrity there)..etc. I just wish they stayed open later at night....other than that, its the best gym in LA!

Pros: no attitude, not a "meat market", great trainers

Cons: closes early, no parking lot

I was so happy when my trainer and I walked into KOR. They made us feel at home. The space is open and comfortable. It's never so busy that you feel confined. The staff is so friendly and helpful. They even have the punk rock puppy Einstein running around! The gym welcomes outside trainers. My trainer has now moved several of his clients over to KOR. I love that people feel comfortable to bring their kids. You can play with the dog and also get the best workout of your life. The have amazing massages, classes and even a chiropracter on site! I'll never leave! If you work out there once, I can almost guarantee you'll go back.

This place is honestly one of the coolest gyms I have ever been too...especially in the area. I was really turned off by some of the other places nearby...but I loved Kor from the moment I walked in...so bright, cheery and friendly...the training is really honest and practical...also the chiropractic services are amazing and so convenient to have the whole package-training, chiropractic, and massage...the only downside is parking-but there are lots of meters-I've never had much of a problem finding a meter-and the staff will feed your meters for you!

KOR has an incredibly professional, knowledgeable, down to earth, and friendly staff - - which is very difficult to find in LA. The space is great - all the equipment you need. The trainers are the best and tailor your workouts for both your lifestyle, body type, and personality - - most importantly they deliver results. They also offer massages - which are AMAZING - WAY better than anything I've ever had at those overpriced spas.

Tired of the typical mega fitness factory? Kor is for you!

A really nice place with no pretense! You can be left alone to use a nice gym with no wait for any weights!! Not a crowded place, not packed with tons of posers in front of the mirrors hoging the treadmill and bragging about their pecs! If you need a place to get in, do your workout and head on home, THIS IS THE PLACE!

I can't tell you how nice this place is. I got everything done at the same place. Great classes, massage therapist, and I get to work out when my kids are in class. The chiropractor is real down to earth and just does a great job. I told all my friends about this place, especially the ones with kids.

Besides the immediate introduction into a very pleasant ambiance, Kor exudes creativity in approach and appearance. Among its attributes are the well constructed and very challenging group classes (especially spinning), well-trained massage therapists, friendly staff, and higly professional yet down to earth trainers. I have been to gyms all over LA and surrounding areas, and as an overall it beats out all others.

Don't miss out on the fun at Sync-cycle classes. The best Kor cardio workout!
I have tried and tested other spin classes at other gyms and Kor's Sync-cyle is by FAR the best. I don't spin anywhere else! Great music, helpful and fun instructors and gym memebers. The best rates, too. An all-around good experience.

You name a gym in L.A. Gold's, Crunch, 24, etc... chances are I've picked up a weight there. Kor gym tops them all. I totally transformed my body in 3 months. The trainers are top notch, focusing on "proper form" and "core stablization". If you're looking for a non-intimidating place to workout without the patrons and "trainers" yammering away on the cell-phone and insane membership fees/contracts or the corny techno music (they let you choose your own tunes), Try it out. My only complaint is because of its "non-trendy" atmosphere, not a lot of "gym bunnies" running around in tights.

This gym was an extraordinary surprise!! A real find amongst the vast array of gyms in Los Angeles that do not live up to the hype. The staff at Kor are amazing and the facilities are first-rate. Very cool vibe. A lot like a large, expansive NYC loft. the spinning class on Saturday is first-rate. It's called "synch-spin" and it is intense but fun with great music. Also occasional celeb sightings for those interested in that kind of thing. Also, great trainers who tailor specific programs for your specific needs.

This is L.A.'s best kept secret. I love this place... it's the anti-crunch.

Awsome trainers! Killer spinning classes! Relaxed atmosphere! It truly is a great neighborhood gym.
