“Phenomenal” is the one word I can use to describe the Prevail gym and staff. Their dedication to hard work and efficiency is unlike any gym I’ve ever been to. The facilities are always well taken care of, and it has a great family atmosphere that is apparent as soon as you walk in the door. Whether it’s your first time boxing or you have been a practitioner for years, you’ll feel right at home at Prevail. Each class is motivating and challenging, and not only do you get a great work out, but you’ll also have a good time doing it.

...Of all the classes I’ve attended, Prevail Los Angeles exemplifies the ideal class. The instructors are excellent coaches and are super friendly. I recommend this class whether you are new to exercising, as I am, or whether you are athletic; this class is comprised of a variety of different body types. If you’re on the fence on whether to or not to check this place out, I say just do it. You’ll be hooked and wish you found this place sooner.
— Christine P.
I have never been more impressed with the level of commitment and non-judgment from a group of instructors in each of their classes... I’ve been coming here for a quick, full-body workout that you have to see to believe! The atmosphere and people in these classes are the best, and before you know it the class is over! Best 45 minutes I can spend working out!
— Casey N.
The patrons are all at different fitness levels, different body types, and come from different walks of life... But then you realize how you are all there for the same reason; to work out. And you don’t feel out of place....There is something special going on at Prevail and you can feel it the moment you walk in. I think that the special thing is love.
