Milestone Program Update

The Milestone Program is an integral part of Burn 60's DNA. It's challenges + benchmarks were designed by our master trainers to progressively elevate your performance while training at Burn 60. Not just within the program, but during every class. 

The 4 core challenges lay the foundation for our training method. You're ability to perform them, supercharges your workout. How? 3 words: endurance, speed and strength. That's what the program is engineered to improve. The faster, longer and harder you can push, the more you'll get out of class. 

Another contributing factor, the psychological effect. The more challenges you knock off, the more you'll start to see the Milestones within every class routine. Trust us, you won't be able to run on the tread for 2:00 without hitting .25! We want you to train with intention. We want you to set goals. Not just for a month or year. But before every sprint, push-up and burpee. Let's get to that reality together!.

Starting next week we're launching 2 major updates to the milestone program: 

  1. We're adding a 4th, introductory level
  2. We'll be rotating a new challenge into the mix every month. 

ADDING A NEW LEVEL

The new Level 1 is the perfect set of goals for a 1st time burner to focus on. 

 

WILDCARD CHALLENGES

Begining in September, we're adding a new "Wildcard" challenge to the program every month. Elite and long time Burners, this is all you. Now you'll have a new challenge to set your eyes on every 30 days. 

If you have any questions about what level you should start at or how the program works, ask your trainer next time you're in the studio! 

TRAINER CHALLENGE

The Trainer Challenge begins tomorrow! Over the next 14 days, we challenge you to take as many trainers classes as you can. Try someone new or just workout at a different time! This is your opportunity to inject a little variety into your life.

Not to mention, We have the most bad-ass team of trainers in LA! Each one with their own style and charisma. You HAVE to try them all. Who knows, you might just find your new favorite ;) 

How does the challenge work?

  • Sign-up by writing your name on the lobby poster. The challenge is studio specific, so sign up where you take classes the most.  Then, track the number of trainer's classes you take between 8.14 - 8.28.

What can you win?

  • Take 5 different trainers at your home studio and win a free Burn 60 Phone Flipper* while supplies last
  • Take 6+ and you could win a FabFitFun Box and a June Jacobs gift bag. One winner per studio.

July M.V.B. Rioko T!

Congratulations to Rioko T! July's Most Valuable Burner. Andrew S describes her as "a beast", and we think that's an understatement. In 2 years, she has somehow managed to take over 200 classes with 21 different trainers...WOW. Keep crushing it Rioko! 

Tell us about your first class at Burn on December 14, 2015

It took me 2 months of contemplating before finally signing up for my 1st class. Running was never my thing (I still don't love it), I was recovering from a shoulder injury, and I didn't know what to expect. I don't remember much in detail of the actual workout that day, as my brain could only focus on just getting through the 60 minutes. I think I mostly walked on treadmill. My top running speed was at 5.0 if that. But when I left the studio, I remember saying to myself I think I found the one! It's been a great journey since. 

Do you have a favorite instructor or class? 

That's a tough one! Every single instructor is a top-notch professional, and they all have something very special and unique about them!  I appreciate their creativity and expertise, their vast collection of eclectic playlists, and their inspiring words of encouragement when the going gets tough. The instructors somehow make the very challenging workout fun and enjoyable, which I greatly appreciate because there's no way I'd be working out this hard on my own. I need them to tell me what to do!

What is your favorite and least favorite exercise? 

 I like strength exercises for upper body as well as short bursts of increment running at zero incline. I dread inclines - anything over 3% saps my endurance energy quickly and I struggle. Also, I'm not a fan of high jumps (rough on my knees). 

What do you love most about Burn and what keeps you coming back?  

No matter how tough the workout, I always feel more energized after a Burn. Even on days when I dread even just thinking about working out, if I manage to make myself show up, I feel 100% better after a Burn. I love the variety of challenging workout, love the amazing (and some scary 😂) trainers, love the friendly front desk staff, and I love the spacious and well-maintained WeHo studio, not to mention easy, free parking. Burn 60 has become a pillar of my weekly routine. This is the first time I stuck with any type of exercise program consistently for this long, and that's something. 

 

Here's what trainer Andrew S has to say about Rioko

"Rioko is a beast. She sets a goal and will do everything she can to meet it. When we had the Olympic competition, she went every day to win the month. When she had the victory with stars clearly in hand she continued to keep going. She might not be the fastest, she might not be the strongest, but she takes all the hard classes and all comers without fail and puts her head down and does the work. To me, that is awesome. And for that, I give her much deserved respect"……. Andrew S.

WHERE ARE YOU ORIGINALLY FROM

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME A TRAINER

I have always thought it was important to stay in shape for both life and sport, and have always taken that commitment seriously. When I realized that it was the job of a trainer to motivate, inspire, educate and lead by example, I knew it was the career path for me.

WHAT DRIVES YOU?

I am honored that I get to wake up each morning and guide others on their path to health and fitness. Living this lifestyle has had an irreplaceably positive impact on my life and I am compelled to help others along their path.

WHAT CAN PEOPLE EXPECT FROM YOUR CLASS?

First and foremost, I believe that training should be fun. But I also believe that people should walk out feeling accomplished. People can expect not only to bust their chops to get the work done, but find relief in the fact that they can have a fun time doing it.

Welcome to Brentwood Nelly L!

 

Where are you originally from?

Chicago, IL. I moved to Los Angeles over 7 years ago.

 

What inspired you to become a trainer?

Most of my family is overweight and I have seen the complications that arise from leading an un-healthy lifestyle. I want to inspire others to love their bodies and make healthy choices.

 

What drives you? My children! 

I plan on always being able to run and keep up with them! 

 

What can people expect when they come to your class?

High energy and the motivation to work hard. I want you to love fitness as much as I do!

 

You can try Nelly's high energy class for yourself at 7:00a on Monday + Wednesday at Burn 60 -Brenwood...

Welcome to WEHO Sam Capogrosso

Where are you originally from?

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. 

What inspired you to become a trainer?

I was inspired to become a trainer because I enjoy helping people do the things they love. Whether it be running a 5k, playing soccer, cycling up a mountain, or even having the energy to keep up with your kids, being in shape is a great way to make all aspects of life more enjoyable. I was lucky enough to receive a great education in fitness through my time running track, playing rugby, and competing in triathlons, and I want to share the knowledge I’ve acquired with others so they can find the same happiness I have from physical activity.

 

What drives you?

I am driven by a desire to help others live a happy and healthy lifestyle. I believe being physically active can help people overcome even the most daunting of obstacles. Whether these obstacles occur out in the physical world, in the workplace, or in one’s mind, being in tune with your body can be hugely beneficial in achieving the most challenging of goals. If I can help even one person overcome whatever her or his obstacle may be, and live a better life because of it, then I have done my job as a trainer.

 

What can people expect when they come to your class?

 People can expect a workout that will challenge them from start to finish. The routines that I incorporate into my classes are based on functional human movements. My workouts are ultimately designed to help people move more efficiently and gracefully through everyday life. I promise to give each and every person in my class the individual attention she or he needs to get the most out of the workout, and in return all I ask is that my athletes hold their heads high, and keep working to the best of their abilities even when it gets tough.

April M.V.B: Lirona Kadosh

larona.png

Congratulations to April's MVB- Lirona Kadosh. She is our newest Burn Mom who brought a life into the world on April 17.

Master Elan Aryeah was born Saturday April 8th, 2017, 11:32am, 7 pounds 11 ounces and 20.5 inches. Pictured in a Rock n' Play gifted to her by another wonderful Burn client and impending new trainer Nelly Lindsay! 

Master Elan Aryeah was born Saturday April 8th, 2017, 11:32am, 7 pounds 11 ounces and 20.5 inches. Pictured in a Rock n' Play gifted to her by another wonderful Burn client and impending new trainer Nelly Lindsay! 

So, what makes Lirona our Most Valuable Burner?

2-3 morning a week, she walks into the Brentwood studio ready to take the 8:15a or 9:30a class. She always has a great attitude and giant smile. She exudes that "ready to conquer” and never give up" mentality. Lirona is the "contagious motivation” that we always talk about. You want her on the treadmill next to you. And boy can she move! She was gingerly walking on the treadmill just 9 days before delivery. Talk about inspiring. We are so proud to have her as part of the Burn Family.

In case you were wondering, Lirona has taken 381 classes since April 6, 2014. That breaks down to 127 classes a year or 11 classes a month which is 2-3 classes a week!

So, we asked our trainers to share a few words about Lirona and here is what they said:

Lirona ---it is clients like you that you that make what I do and we do as a team so rewarding!! You showed up consistently to class no matter what was going on with your body and did what you could do on any given day --- some days more than others some days a little less ---but it didn't matter - you showed up with a smile on your face and you kicked booty every single time!! Congrats!.. Rebecca

Such an inspiration to watch Lirona through her 9-month journey. It won't be long until that kid starts sprinting 12.5! Way to work girl!!! Nick M.

Lirona!!  Congratulations on little Elan!!  I know he will be just as studly as his Momma.  Can't wait to have you back at full sprint speed in no time!! … XO Keith

Congrats. Your treadmill awaits! …. Andrew

What a wonderful inspiration to other expectant moms! I will be sharing this with one of the soon-to-be moms that is a regular in WeHo :) …. Wes
