The Return of Barnsdall

Yes indeed, Barnsdall is back and what a morning it was.  Turns out Google is wrong and the park does open before 6am.  In fact, it should open around 5 (or 5:15 when the gate opens) and viola, even our 5:30 crew could get in on the fun.  We galavanted around Frank Lloyd Wright’s creations and threw in a few sets of stairs because everyone is reminiscing about the days in the Hollywood Bowl.

We had dogs galore, burpees for days, and we even had a surprise visit from MEL from Vancouver.    See folks, people are practically flocking to LA since it’s the place to be and we always have sunshine.  Just saying.


Of course nothing ends a workout like a partner squat burnout.

Who are we kidding, CHEER tunnels are the way to end a workout.

Anyways, keeping it short and sweet today.  Enjoy the long weekend and we’ll see you back on Wednesday at Griffith Observatory.  When in doubt, check those social feeds for updates, hype, and #content.

  • Barnsdall Art Park was created by Aline Barnsdall, a wealthy Chicago oil heiress, who wanted to build a community center and headquarters for her theatre company.  She hired Frank Lloyd Wright to design the complex and it was actually his first Los Angeles project.  Also fun fact, a few episodes of Big Little Lies was shot at Barnsdall.
