Ode To Liam

Roses are red, violets are blue, our trainers and staff have anniversaries, just like me and you. We like to acknowledge these special days because our dedicated Burn Family definitely deserves the praise.

He started on 12/11 taking class after class after class. He took David, Keith and Julie- all great trainers to sharpen his craft. It must have felt like forever before he put on a mic, because frankly it was... We were sure he’d take a hike. On Jan 31, in 2012 Liam taught his first 5:45a class and no one went on strike.
Here are some stats that should make you all proud. If you’re part of his posse, you’re definitely a number in this crowd -

  • Over the last 7 years Liam has taught 1771 classes (that’s 74 straight days of classes)

  • He has had over 24,500 client visits mostly on Monday +Weds at 6a + Sundays at 9:15a. But don’t be fooled, his workout has changed a ton. It is always getting harder (but shorter) than it was on Day 1.

  • To our dismay, his music remains the same. How could this Irishman be so successful when his music sucks and his workout is never tame?

Congratulations Liam on your 7th year at Burn. The fact that your numbers keep growing is a statistic that only you can command. But thank goodness for the business, because your sold out classes are in demand.
You have changed many lives, one client at a time, and possibly offended just as many- who choose to never take your class time. Our jabs are just in fun, you know we love you dearly. Your leadership and legendary form of training is second to no one!

Welcome to BTWD Scott F.


Where are originally from?

From Manchester, New Jersey, small woods town close to the beach.

What inspired you to become a trainer?

Being a leader in sports has played a big role in me becoming a trainer. I went through so many strength and conditioning coaches and systems that I kind of mix them all together to create my own style.

What drives you?

Getting to know who you are training with and finding out what fuels others to become better has given me more of an understanding 'why' people want to compete or become better. Hearing their stories and obstacles on the way makes me want to help any way I can.

What can people expect when they come to your class?

I like to be aggressive with my classes, similar to a bootcamp, but a lot less yelling. Ill give you direction and teach you technique so you learn the movements and why we do them instead of just going through the motions. I like to use my Exercise Science background to give you some knowledge about what/why we are doing in class that day!



April M.V.B. Kati Kern!

Congratulations to Kati Kern our April MVB

Every month we ask all of our trainers and staff to submit names of who they believe is deserving of our highest achievement- Most Valuable Burner ( MVB) . Moving forward, I invite YOU-  our clients to nominate your peers for this prestigious award. You are all doing the work together- why shouldn’t you be cheering each other on and acknowledging each other?

Is there a special client that you believe deserves this accolade? Please email me at janet@burn60.com and tell us why you think someone in the Burn community is next MVB on our list.

I admit, my heart always swells when I read these responses because they are truly from the heart. Everyone has a reason that they workout and it is always my privilege to share their stories with you- our awesome clients.

Here are a few fun facts about Kati’s history with Burn: 

  • Her first class was on August 24, 2014, with Kris. 
  • She has taken class from 18 different instructors. (Although 95% have been with Nick or Keith)
  • Kati has taken a total of 405 classes
  • She averages 2-3 classes a week mostly at 8:15a.

To give you some comparisons since she's walked through our doors 4 years ago:

  • She's run the equivalent of 1200 miles or the distance between LA and Chicago. 
  • She's burned over 200,000 calories — or 57 lbs. (that’s 800 Snickers bars)  



A few words with Kati-


Tell us about your first class at Burn on Sunday, August 24, 2014, with Kris?

I remember feeling a unique combination of utter exhaustion as well as an internal strength that I had never achieved from another workout class. I can remember needing to take naps when I first started the work out and now, if I skip a work out, I am finding myself tired! 


Do you have a favorite instructor or class? 

I will never say NO to an 8:15am Keith or Nick class 


What is your favorite and least favorite exercise?

I love long endurance runs and I could live without Burpees


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

I love the level of commitment that both the instructors and athletes bring to every class.  Everything from the music, to the work out, to the friendly competition, keeps me coming back week after week. 


What has been your greatest accomplishment inside the studio?  

My greatest accomplishment is hopefully yet to be achieved...Burn 60 has a way of pushing you far beyond the goals you set. Thank you again for this high honor :) Katie also just ran her first 11.0!

Kati has been a rock-star ever since her first class years ago. Brings Such a positive attitude every time and works her ass off the entire 60 minutes. Love her loyalty and dedication. Thanks Kati!!!! - Nick Malizia
I LOVE coaching Kati.  She brings her max effort to every workout and has the hugest smile on her face when it’s over!  She set a goal to hit 11.0 on the tread by May and accomplished it!!  Kati, you’re a sweetheart and an athlete! - Keith Anthony

Welcome to WEHO Lynsey H.


Where are originally from?

Los Gatos, CA (northern CA)

What inspired you to become a trainer?

I’ve always been an athlete and share a deep love for showing people that they are capable of so much more than they think. It’s an honor and inspiration to watch people transform not only their bodies but their minds as well. It’s amazing to be able to have even a tiny part of making someone feel stronger. 

What drives you?

There is always more to learn. There is no end game you only get stronger. Finding new ways to push myself and be an even better trainer than the day before. That’s what drives me.

What can people expect when they come to your class?

My class has longer high intensity treadmill rounds that will push people to burn more and gain longevity in their runs. My floor has a wide variety of full body exercises from concentration moves to ripping circuits. I have a very upbeat and encouraging attitude. I love to dance in the studio and will mostly be on the tread running right next to everyone! 



Welcome to WEHO Emily J


Where are originally from?

I’m from a small city in the North of England called Preston, not far from Manchester!

What inspired you to become a trainer?

I honestly believe fitness is a way to change your life and there is something so powerful about the feeling and energy it gives you. I want people everywhere to understand what that feels like, and how much greater they can become by making fitness and exercise an important part of their lives. 

What drives you?

I am driven by the clients in all my classes, by their successes and progress. It still amazes me how you feel after a class or a workout, how it can change your mood and change your mindset. That gives me motivation- because I know I’m going to come out on the other side, better and equipped for whatever the world has to throw at me! Physically and mentally. 

What can people expect when they come to your class?

I like good, loud music! I like challenges, and I want to push people, so they leave class feeling the best version of themselves! 



Burn 60 at IHRSA 2018

For over a year, we've been secretly working on some amazing new products to enhance the studio experience and integrate Burn 60 into your home. Two weeks ago, we had the opportunity to showcase the beta version of our in-studio group training screen and the Burn 60 Live prototype with Woodway Treadmills at the International IHRSA fitness expo in San Diego, CA. 

Burn 60 Group Training Screen

Trainer Andrew S, made the trip down to San-Diego with us to showcase the Burn 60 group screen during demo classes at the Woodway booth. This new screen increases the usability of the Burn 60 workout for first time and returning clients while keeping the trainer at the center of the experience.  The screen communicates the current exercise, upcoming exercises, which equipment to grab in-between rounds and performance goal targets. We're hoping to launch the screen in the coming months, more information to come...



Burn 60 live is a personalized, on-demand HIIT workout platform that integrates with compatible treadmills and connected devices. Learn more at burn60live.com


Welcome to WEHO Blake L.

blake-l blog.png

We're excited to announce that we have a new trainer at the West Hollywood studio, Blake Lopez! Blake's class has been running great already, and we can't to see every member of the FitFam there BURNing all that they've got. 

We asked Blake some questions so that all of you can get to know him a bit better -

 Where are you originally from?

New Iberia, Louisiana

What inspired you to become a trainer?

It's simple, I want to help people fall deeper in love with themselves both mentally and physically. To remind people that they are limitless. I want to empower people to know their worth and be reminded of that.

What drives you?

Growing up I was always the runt in my circle of friends of which all of them were athletes and some of them now coaches and players in the pro leagues.  As a Southerner I was born into this outdoor culture and an obsession with all sports especially football and basketball. (GEAUX SAINTS / GEAUX TIGERS!) 

I wanted to play it all; however given my size, I was always the guy that was picked last. The reason I mention this is because I fully understand that fitness is a real journey. I stay rooted in that little boy and find motivation from him.

I want to bring people to writing their narrative. Helping them connect to who they want to be. Knowing that people trust me with their fitness journey is truly something special and humbling.\


What can people expect when they come to your class?

You can expect fierce beats, an intense workout with strong runs and strength building full body floor sets, along with a big personality. I always tell my clients you can be comfortable or you can be courageous. I expect my clients to push their limits and find the courage to create results.

A chat with our MVB...

Tell us about your first class at Burn on May 21 in 2007?

I don't remember it. But sometime around then Jake Nugent (remember Jake?!) played Adele's 'Chasing Pavements' and it stopped me dead in my treadmill tracks. First time I had heard that song.  Fabulous.  

Do you have a favorite instructor or class?

My faves throughout the ages have been Jake Nugent, of course Julie Diamond, my nephew Nick Malizia, and Keith. Nick and Keith have been my inspirational staples, always crafting the super challenging class and executing it with passion, purpose, humor, support and good music. Gonna seriously miss Nick! Ugh. Can we convince Keith to take his monday 8:15?  

What is your favorite and least favorite exercise?

Favorite exercise, Child's Pose. Least favorite, everything else.   

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

The workouts are righteous; they're always tough and demanding. I love knowing I can drag myself in there at 8:15 and an hour later I'll feel incredible, energized and ready to embrace my day (after enjoying a "recovery coffee" namely my vanilla latte 😉).  I also love the community I'm blessed with in both my Monday and Thursday classes. Awesome "usual suspects" who always have a smile, fist bump, hug, or hi. Super comfortable extended family vibe. I keep coming back for those reasons and the fact that I believe prevention is the best health care. I absolutely love that at my annual "check up" my doctor reviews all my vitals and says: "wow, you must exercise a lot!"  


What has been your greatest accomplishment inside the studio? 

I was never an athlete as a kid. My interests were elsewhere and I never cared that much. My greatest accomplishment at Burn probably has to be that I have become an athlete. Shocking. But as my instructors have said, "these classes are demanding and only true athletes can endure them."  It's sort of amazing for me to think I may actually be in that number.

A chat with our M.V.B.

Tell us about your first class at Burn on Thursday, January 21, 2016, with Kris?

I remember being very nervous during my first class. I also remember the class being incredibly challenging, but Kris was incredibly helpful in keeping me motivated to get through it and to come back for more. 

Do you have a favorite instructor or class?

Kris Cueva is my favorite instructor. He knows how to keep me motivated and challenged to push a little harder every class. My favorite line of his is “just get better.” Any little improvement helps. And I’m definitely a morning class guy. Working out before I start my day helps to keep me energized and my mood elevated. 

What is your favorite and least favorite exercise?

I’d have to say my favorite exercise is the minute sprint. I’m a sucker for sprints. I feel that I can really wrap my head around running as fast as possible for one minute and pushing as hard as I can (just get better). As for my least favorite…burpees. I hate them. Yuk. But I still do them. :-)

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

What I love most about Burn are the trainers. All of them are pleasant, knowledgeable, and motivating and fun at the same time. I think almost all the trainers I’ve worked out with know who I am and have taken an interest in pushing me. That means more to me than one might think. In the past, relative to fitness and exercise, I was the guy that gave up early and easily. I was constantly anxious during other studio workouts and gyms and had an “I can’t do this” attitude.  The attention at Burn has kept me accountable and motivated and allowed me to gain confidence in my ability to reach the fitness goals I’ve always wanted, but constantly failed at or just gave up entirely. I am now pushing 40-years-old and am in the best shape I’ve ever been in my entire life. That's insane to me. I am in better shape at 40 than I was at 20. That. Is. MADNESS!!! This entire experience has helped to increase my self-esteem and provided me the confidence in myself that had been lacking up until this point. 

 What has been your greatest accomplishment inside the studio?  

I think my greatest accomplishment inside the studio is the fact that I’ve stuck with it. It’s become a part of my life now. If I don’t visit Burn regularly I feel “off.”  As a psychotherapist, I know that importance of managing one’s mood, including anxiety and depression. If I don't get there regularly I feel tired, slow, and irritable. Burn is my natural anti-depressant. It’s my routine and my self-care. It’s become the greatest thing I’ve ever done for myself and has truly changed my life. 


I would also like to give particular credit to Kris Cueva. He was the instructor during my first Burn 60 class and he got me to come back…continuously.  He took interest in pushing me to reach goals that he knew I could reach, even when I didn’t think I could. He kept me accountable, even when I wasn’t being accountable to myself. And he never gave up on me, even when I wanted to give up on myself. No other instructor that I’ve ever taken, in any studio or gym, has had the effect on my life that Kris has had. He has helped to change my life and I owe so much of my progress and transition to his training and motivation.

And I keep coming back...

November M.V.B. Tia Stamos!

Blog Banner MVB TIA.jpg

Congratulations to Tia Stamos Burn 60’s November MVB!

Tia has taken 310 classes from 11 different trainers in the last 1.5 years! Tia prefers the early morning, 95% of her classes have been at 6:00 or 7:00 AM. You can almost always find her at one of our studios every day. She averages 18-22 classes a month. Talk about dedication and commitment to health. Thank you Tia, you inspire us all.


A chat with our MVB...

Tell us about your first class at Burn on May 17, 2016 with Lana?

I was a total beginner, every run and all the floor work was so hard! I held a 9.0 sprint for about 20 seconds and felt like that was a win according to my skill level at that time. I was immediately hooked and knew Burn was for me. Great, challenging workouts is exactly what I look for.  

Do you have a favorite instructor or class?

Yes, Andrew and Liam! I take their classes regularly. Both have challenged and pushed me to be better overall and faster! I wouldn't be where I am today without them.

What is your favorite and least favorite exercise?

Favorite: Hmm ... I think it would be anything that I can actually complete whether it's a certain number of reps of an exercise on the floor or a distance/time I know I can run on the treadmill. Least Favorite: Definitely Push Ups, especially Hand Release Push Ups. You'd think after all this time I'd have it down but I'm still struggling and working on it! 

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

I love that Burn focuses on performing, and challenges you to improve your speed and strength. Burn pushes you to make the most out of your workout to make you an all around better version of yourself. What keeps me coming back to Burn are the trainers!

What has been your greatest accomplishment inside the studio?  

I'd say my greatest accomplishment is going from a Level 1/Level 2 to Elite (almost totally). With every class I try to get faster and stronger, I never thought I'd even come close to hit these numbers, when I do it feels amazing. Now, there's that 3 minute half still left! 


HERE'S WHAT the trainers HAve TO SAY:

"Tia is both Brentwood and Weho and she has come so far. She just hit a 12.5 for a minute...a number she laughed at when I first met her and said she will never hit. Milestones are literally dropping every time she walks in the door. Her numbers have improved and now she is a pure inspiration to everyone around her. I am very proud she is at Burn, she takes my class, and continues to improve every time! She is relentless. Go Tia!" - Andrew

"She has made real, measurable progress over the last year. Always does her best. Always happy to be in class." - Liam

c. 3,000-4,000

d. 5,000+


Additionally, we asked some of our trainers for some anecdotal advice on marathon training! See what they have to say and step up to the challenge!

1. What’s the last marathon you ran? Why did you choose to run it?

2. What advice would you offer to a first-time marathon runner?

3. Do you have a “dream” marathon you’d love to complete one day?

4. How can a Burn 60 class complement marathon training?


Sam’s answers:

  1. Have never run a marathon myself but here’s an answer to the rest of the questions.
  2. For first time marathon runners I would start training well in advance of the race date, slowly build up your mileage on a weekly basis, and get enough sleep to recover after long training days! When you start the race stick to your own pace, and don’t get caught in the initial rush.
  3. Dream marathon would be the Boston marathon. I went to university in Boston so I got to witness the intensity of the course first hand, that coupled with the communal spirit of the city during marathon day makes it the one race I’d love to run.
  4. Burn 60 classes give you the opportunity to work on your running form as well as your pacing, both essential for a long haul run. You’ll also save your joints from the high impact of running outside on concrete, plus the strength training on the floor is a great way to reduce chances of injury when running the actual marathon. 


Andrew’s answers:

  1. Kris did run to remember which was ours and did LA.
  2. Train and put in the miles it is the only way.  Then, the day of the race start of slow and pace yourself.
  3. NY is the penultimate. Boston is iconic. Also, London is amazing. 
  4. It allows you to train on a surface that will not pound your body for miles. It will also help you with your heart rate and make you an athlete for an athletic event!

September M.V.B. Adam Howard!

Blog Banner MVB SEP.jpg

We’re proud to announce Adam Howard as the September 2017 Most Valuable Burner! Adam has come a long way since he came to Burn, self-motivated to hit every milestone. He was thrown right into the Burn 60 experience with Liam's Extreme Burn 45 Class. Pushing through our most challenging class, Adam has gone on to take 136 classes from over 10 different Burn instructors and amazingly enough, 99% of them at 6AM! Impressive! Determined to hit serious milestones, Adam has conquered Liam's military style class, completing his first 2:59 half-mile. His trainers couldn't be more stoked on his progress, watching him transform into an all-star over the course of the past year and a half. Adam is an inspiration to the Burn community and we can't wait to watch him create a new Burn 60 milestone!


Tell us about your first class at Burn on January 4, 2016

I'll be honest - I can't even remember my first Burn class, which is probably a good thing if you're telling me it was with Liam.  I would imagine probably went something like running a 4+min half mile, wanting to vomit, and having Liam tell me I'd be better off going outside to have a smoke and a donut.

Do you have a favorite instructor or class?

 Since Liam is copied on this email, I have to say Liam, right?  In all seriousness, there are things I like about all the trainers at Burn, but I think Liam challenges me the most and pushes me the hardest.  I'm really competitive and I hate failing, and I think Liam knows that and uses it against me. I used to be the chubby kid who ran 10 minute miles in middle school, and just prior to injuring my knee, I ran a 5:46 mile, which I can guarantee wouldn't have been possible without Liam kicking my ass every morning. If he could only get his act together with the music…

What is your favorite and least favorite exercise?

 My favorite exercise is none of them; I think if you have a favorite exercise, you're either not doing it right or not trying hard enough.  My least favorite exercise is a tie between burpies and running at an incline.  Woof.

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

My favorite thing about Burn is definitely the trainers.  All the trainers have their own style and I like that I get to go to the same studio and get very different, yet very challenging workouts.  That consistency is something I think a lot of other studios lack.  I was also very appreciative of the extra attention I received when I couldn't run and had to double up on the floor.  It was a very frustrating couple months, and the Burn trainers definitely helped me though my recovery (and continue to do so).  Finally, I also think there's something to be said about the members; there's almost an unspoken bond while we all commiserate through Liam's class at 6am.  It's a very motivating group to be part of.

Here's what Liam has to say about Adam:

He did double floor for 6 months because he injured himself running but didn't want to stop coming to Burn 60 with his wife Rachel.  Monday morning of this week for the first time in half a year he banged out a 2:59 Half Mile. He is fully recovered and never stopped training even though he couldn't run and running was his favorite exercise. He learned new exercises. Strengthened his back. He kept his lungs and heart in running shape without running because we operate very fast on the floor at Burn 60. Pure determination and intelligent training - Liam G.

Congratulations Adam. We are proud to have you have you as our 6AM Ambassador.
