This self-described "urban sweat lodge" is where Angelenos feel the burn—as in infrared—while they unwind. Book a 50-minute session and you'll be set up in one of two dimly-lit rooms where curtains divide individual, spa-style beds (fresh sheets, fully reclining, call button, water-bottle holder). The friendly staff will help you settle in and wrap you in an infrared blanket, as headphones are placed on and a Netflix or Hulu channel found. Several minutes in, you'll feel the heat—and half an hour in, you'll feel warm and toasty. The last ten minutes are bit tough, but the staff is there if you need a cool towel or to unwrap a limb or two. Post "workout," head to the relaxation room where electrolyte-filled water, orange slices and tea await. Expect to be drenched (bring a change of clothes) and free of toxins without having lifted a finger—sure beats going to the gym.
Shape House also has locations in Santa Monica (1003 Broadway), Pasadena (1169 S Fair Oaks) and West Hollywood (653 N Robertson).
