Most people who enjoy Vegas subscribe to the “work hard, play hard” mentality, and we are definitely in favor of this flow. Between relaxing at the area’s luxurious hotels, taking in the Strip’s world-class entertainment and living it up with Vegas’s signature nightlife, it is possible to make time to pursue your personal goals while on your Vegas vacation. The “work hard” mentality doesn’t exclude fitness, so we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite high-intensity workouts near the Strip and in the greater Las Vegas area to keep your blood pumping. 

REDEMPTION Fitness 
1059 S Rampart Blvd.
702-724-9815

This spot is sure to impress with their high-intensity cardio classes; they offer boxing, cycling and treadmill interval training. The atmosphere is top-notch, and the instructors will push you to your limit. We love the REBEL class, whose tagline says it all: “You’ll win every single battle no matter what punch your jab, upper cut or roundhouse kick is packing that day.”

Omalza Fitness
6675 S Tenaya Way Suite 230
702-409-2980 

If you’re going to be in Vegas for longer than a weekend, we highly recommend taking one of their 6- week challenges, which is a sure way to find your super-strength. The trainers are very attentive and considerate of your overall needs and goals for training, which is so refreshing, even if you’re just dropping in for one class. We love the boxing and kickboxing classes, mostly because they remind us of all of the great fighters who have made their mark on the Strip in legendary fight nights. Whatever class you decide to take, you will certainly be pushed to your limit. 

Smash Iron Fitness 
2350 S Rainbow Blvd Ste 8 Las Vegas, NV 89146 
866-767-4476

If you’re serious about training, definitely jump into a circuit class at Smash! Their equipment, instructors and methods are some of the best in the area. We also love their friendly, welcoming vibe, because the intimidating gym guy is definitely so 1990s. Check them out for approachable, next-level training!
