The workout: The 18 machines in this fitness course are lined up from start to finish with detailed instructions and illustrations of each workout. Do the entire circuit for a full body workout or choose a specific station.

The scene: Bike paths surround this grassy island, adjacent to Admiralty Way and across from the Ritz Carlton Marina del Rey. While the equipment is made of dark wood (beware of splinters) and may be rusty at some stations, the atmosphere—just a block away from the ocean—is serene and mostly quiet.

How’s the parking?: There’s a public lot ($0.25 for each 15 minutes; $8/day) with only a limited amount of spots attached to the fitness course, complete with bike storage locker—ideal for the cardio portion of your workout.

Bonus: Need to warm up? There are even stretching stations separate from the course as well as a heart check guide on ideal beats per minute for the ultimate workout. Plus, for the after work crowd, the park is lit for night workouts.
