While we’re all busy planning our attack on 2017 workout routines, a few new fitness studios have popped up to assist.
Pure Indoor Cycling
Opened in August of last year in Little Italy, Pure Indoor Cycling is San Diego’s newest cycling studio with that sleek and hip vibe trending in America’s most popular spin spots. Here, expect 40 state-of-the-art bikes, LED lights and high-energy music in a sexy, clean space. New students can try their first class for free.

Orangetheory Bankers Hill
The Orangetheory addiction is real. This gym, known for 60-minute sessions split into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training, has been rapidly expanding in San Diego. The Bankers Hill location is next to open this month. Students wear heart rate monitors to track intensity and maximize metabolic burn, while following coaches and receiving post-workout recaps.

F45 Training La Jolla
Downtown La Jolla got a little but buffer when F45 opened in October of 2016. Short yet effective, these 45-minute long classes take members into various high-speed circuits with motivational trainers. The F45 workout originated in Australia, and is meant to build lean muscle and shed fat fast. New students can snag a free pass for one week.

Belle + Barre
Also opened at the end of last year is Belle + Barre, a heated barre studio making students sweat in Hillcrest. Although the studio does offer unheated options, every B+B class goes beyond the typical barre workout by incorporating more cardio intervals and serious strength training. The signature class here is offered in an 85 to 95-degree room, heated by infrared paneling. The first class for new clients is $5.

If you’re someone who’s adverse to any type of commitment, Lymber might be the best fit for you in the New Year. The new San Diego-based startup offers users workout classes across hundreds of studios. The price for each class varies (rather than paying one monthly membership fee like ClassPass), but the catch is that the rates are dynamic and can be as low as a few dollars. Prices vary depending on the day of the week, the time of day, the popularity of the instructor or studio, and a number of other variables that Lymber uses in a pricing algorithm. Try yoga, cycling, pilates, kickboxing and even cryotherapy on this app.
