Los Angeles is a city that is known for its active lifestyle. From hitting the gym to hiking in Runyon, there are plenty of ways to stay fit. But if you're looking for something a bit more unique, the city offers some offbeat training activities that you can try.

Whether you've always wanted to do trapeze acts or participate in other aerial feats, Cirque School will help you learn them. Air dance classes, advanced aerial fitness, flexibility and strength, balance, trapeze, contortion and much more are offered here.

If you're looking for something a bit more relaxing, Yogaqua is an outdoor yoga school located in Marina Del Rey that offers 90-minute sessions on a paddle board.
Beginners and experienced yogis alike can enjoy stand-up paddle surfing complemented by vinyasa yoga.

And if you're looking for a tan while working out, head to Sandbox Fitness for a day at the beach. Seniors can visit Anita May Rosenstein's campus at the Los Angeles LGBT Center on Wednesdays to learn how to keep balls in the air without dropping them.
And if you're looking for something that will really get your heart rate up, try Hoopnotica at Crunch Gym on Sunset or Believe Fitness Studio in El Segundo.
