I've been working out with Tony at Ultra Body Fitness three days a week for the last few months and I honestly can't say enough about the man or his gym. He is more than a personal trainer. He's a sculptor. I had been working out by myself for over ten years and was having shoulder problems, knee problems and had not had any weight or strength gains in ages. Working out almost six days a week and not seeing any gains was becoming incredibly frustrating. I decided it was time to learn what mistakes I was making by signing up with a professional. Within a few weeks, Tony had corrected my form, introduced me to the agony and ecstasy of super sets and drop sets, completely solved my shoulder and knee problems and given me an incredible boost in strength. Without hesitation, Ultra Body Fitness gets my highest recommendation.

I wanted to share with you my experiences with Tony and the staff at Ultrabody Fitness. I, too, was one of those people that would work out 3 times a week and expect miracles in those 3 hours. I did not adhere to the diets and was always frustrated with my results...actually---lack of results. Then, I came over to Ultrabody Fitness and started speaking with Tony. He put it right on the line with me and said that although he could help me get in shape I would need to make the commitment to follow a healthier life plan. He said that like me, many others expected miracles with just 3 sessions a week and again like me, blame the trainers for lack of progress. I took this to heart and made the commitment. I followed the program he designed for me and stuck to it. I put in my own time outside of the gym as well and Tony kept a constant communication with me and made alterations as needed to help me achieve my goals. Well, in the past 4 months I have lost 30 lbs and my body is toned and fit and I feel great. I found Tony's approach to be professional, personal, and effective. I continue to work out at Ultrabody Fitness and I highly recommend it. I will also add that I have not experienced any problems with air conditioning and I work out at various times of the day and find this a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. I read below that some people were not happy with their results...but lets face it ---you get what you give and I chose to give 100%. Good Luck to you all in achieving your fitness goals. 2 Thumbs up from me for this gym!

Before Ultra Body Fitness, I had achieved great results loosing weight with cardio emphasized boot camps. I kept the weight off on my own after those boot camps but never did achieve the tight toned body that I admired in others. I realized through research that what I was missing was strength training but the gyms intimidated me and the cost of a personal trainer was too high.
Tony's Boot Camp at Ultra Body Fitness has shown me the light to achieving my dream body!!!
After 20 sessions I lost those last ten pounds and gained the toned tight body I've always wanted. The boot camps were never crowded and everyone is serious about training. The staff and other trainers are SUPER friendly and you feel connected to the gym right away. This connection keeps you going and helps in meeting your goals. Tony is fantastic and easygoing and at the same time is always aware just how to push you when you need it.
I was a complete novice going in but Tony and everyone there made me feel comfortable and taught me well. The six am call time is early but doable and actually the best time to work out, drive to and from the gym and find parking (yes there is a time of day in LA with no traffic). The gym is super clean with well-maintained equipment, never crowded, and easy to park in the area. The music is never annoying and the staff and other trainers make you feel comfortable no matter what your level of experience. My own results have all my friends and clients at my job asking about my training and I've already referred all of them here. It truly is the best gym in L.A.

I moved to LA 4 months ago (Aug 07) and finding a good gym and a personal trainer was on my priority list of things to do to help me settle in. I was given the guided tour of many gyms in the West Hollywood area and then walked in to Ultrabody Fitness and met Tony. From that moment on I knew I'd found my sanctuary, it was poles apart from everything else I'd looked at. Tony (the proprietor and a former Mr Universe!! (natural body)) gave me the guided tour and sat me down to ask what my goals were. Because Tony has dedicated his life to fitness and well being he reasures you with his knowledge and doesn't give you false hope. Since our first meeting those many months ago I've been working-out with Tony twice a week and all I can say is it's fantastic! Each time we meet is like a therapy session, he pushes me hard to help me acheive my goals to the max but isn't an army sergeant! The gym itself is fanbloomintastic. It's immaculate, everyone who goes their respects the area and the equipment. The private shower rooms are Mr Clean clean, and being a girl in a gym that's predominatly male, that's an important thing! I would say from the bottom of my heart that Ultrabody Fitness, Tony and all the people who are either trainers or training there have played a HUGE part in making me feel like LA is my home (being a British girl I'm far away from home so it's key to surround myself with good people and good environments). It's a truly wonderful place, people go there to 'work out' there's no 'scene', it's all about getting fit and living a healthy lifestyle but having fun whilst doing it. All I can say now is JOIN TODAY you'll live to regret it if you don't, it really does change your life, the combination of a good gym and a great trainer who you build a good relationship with really does change your life (have you seen Biggest Loser?), seriously. It all sounds very 'American' to say that but it's true, go ask to speak to Tony and sign-up today!
Ultra Body is the place to be! If your a trainer and looking for a place to train your clients look no further! Ultra Body also has staff trainers for people looking for a trainer! The gym has a very cool vibe. Everybody is friendly, rarely packed and always clean! Tony is the man you want to see!

Ultra Body Fitness has helped my business grow! I used to work at a corportate gym where I could not focus on my clients 100% I was always pushed to have our clients purchase more packages. I came Ultra Body Fitness a year and four months ago. I can say it is ulter bliss! I'm my own boss! I pay a minimal fee to the gym and can charge my own rate to my clients. The gym is a fully equipped and always clean. There is private restrooms and showers. There is even a massage therapist and nutitritionist on site! If your a personal trainer you have to check out this gym!

The best private workout experience I have ever had. I can focus without any distractions. It's all about me for that hour. How I look, how I feel and how I want my body to look! How to best achieve my goals and how to balance my diet in order to complement my goals. Yes you would think it might be pretentious because of the private setting and celebrity status of certain clients, yet it is anything but!! Everybody that works out here does their own thing. It's kind of a rarity it Hollywood which makes it an extra special find. This gym is kept to an extremely high standard of cleanliness with private showers & restrooms. It all comes down to Tony (the owner) a highly respected professional bodybuilder who at the top of his game was MR UNIVERSE among many others titles. Having worked personally with Tony I know he brings that same dedication to the quality of his gym and his personal training and requires it from his staff of personal trainers also. From Michigan, Tony also brings that down home feel to work with him. Also a rare find out here! I'm an out of Towner and I don't mind to shout it out when I see something worth shouting about. Gotta say it's a rare occurrence now days but do yourself a favor! If you're serious about getting in shape or improving your condition give Tony a call and pop in and see him. He will put you on the right path. Personally I was 30 pounds overweight, no muscle, a limp, breathing problems and nobody could help me. Doctors wanted to operate and I didn?t. By chance I hobbled into Ultrabody Fitness when passing by one day and asked to speak with the owner. Tony called me later that day. I went in and he did an assessment. He was the first person, trainer, chiropractor, masseuse, back doctor, who confidently said that he could help. I jumped right in. Six months later I've never been as lean,and fit, or looked as good!! (And it's all natural). I eat lots of good food and am a healthy weight. Thanks Tony. VA

I've been going about 9 months. Have had a great experience with my trainer. I'm in better shape, lost weight, improved my diet. A big part of that is the reenforcement that comes with belonging to Ultrabody. The vibe from the trainers is pleasant and positive. There isn't a ""scene"" there. Just clients and trainers all with the same goal. to get into better shape. I'm a slug compared to some of the clients, but I;ve never felt intimidated or out of place. The gym has a wide variety of equipment, in great condition. The music is good and not obnoxiously loud. It's easy to keep up on sports with plenty of flat panels around the gym. There is enough equipment that there is never a traffic jam. They've recently remodeled and doubled the size, with new showers and changing rooms. The lot is small, but there is plenty of parking immediately adjacent. All in all, I highly recommend.

I have been to all the GYMS, such as Sports Club, Equinox...I can go on and on...BUT this GYM is AWESOME! Tony is an amazing guy who works you out BIG TIME +++ All the people who go there are friendly and easy-going. It's kind of nice to be in an environment where everybody is NOT trying to IMPRESS and look COOL..U know what I am talking about! This gym has an awesome environment to workout in and that is a bonus living in LA.
I HIGHLY REcommend this gym for anybody who wants serious positive physical results surrounded by cool and humble People.

I feel badly writing a bad review with all the GOOD reviews up...but in the off-chance that this might help someone...then so be it.
i paid a quite a bit of money to get what i thought would be a ""personal training experience"" (aka: they know what your goals are, they're focused on YOU), but what i got was nothing of the sort. don't get me wrong, my bum HURT the next day...but for the money, i'm pretty sure ANY trainer could have hurt me that way (and for half the price).
if you're looking for a good workout, look around then come here (especially if money is no object). but if you're looking for exceptional one-on-one training...don't go.
the gym is clean and bright. parking is a con. so is the attitude you get when you birng up a 'complaint.'
