An office building gym doesn't usually conjure up thoughts of swim classes taught by a triathlete, a yoga studio with a private entrance and cycling classes with a flat-screen TV showing videos of rough, outdoor terrain. Yet all of this is readily available at TriFit in the Yahoo! building in Santa Monica, making it a favorite way for nearby office dwellers to avoid some of the 10 freeway's bumper-to-bumper rush hour.
Although the gym is open to everyone and those who live in the neighborhood can -- and do -- join, this gym is very much a before-and-after work destination. There's even an ironing board in the women's locker room to ensure you look impeccable for your morning meetings.
