Prevail Los Angeles
Meagan Kong: Prevail is a great balance between boxing and HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). My favorite trainer is Milan. The class flies by.
MK: It’s a quick 45-minute class, and offers a good balance between classical and endurance pilates. My favorite instructor here is Patrick Leslie.
MK: I love the classic HIIT class or the Primal Movement class which is a cross between modern dance, parkour and American Ninja Warrior. My favorite trainer is @bodybyjennla.
MK: The stairs at the Hollywood Bowl. Not many people know that the Bowl is open to the public during the day. If you're lucky, you'll be running stairs to a live rehearsal of the LA Philharmonic.
Lake Hollywood Park
MK: Run or bike around the Hollywood Reservoir. It’s a hidden oasis tucked in the Hollywood Hills — about 3.5 miles of mostly paved pathway.
Franklin Canyon Park
MK: And hiking! There’s so many favorite places to choose from. Franklin Canyon is so peaceful.
MK: A short but steep hike.

Where to Wind Down
MK: Here I’ll do an infrared sauna session with private shower followed by cayenne shots.
The Raven Spa
Los Feliz and Santa Monica
MK: The Raven Spa is a beautiful bungalow with yoga, massage and sauna.
MK: I love to order the Kabbouleh salad with two poached eggs. The turmeric tonic is a must.
MK: I love the porridge bar. I get half overnight oats, half green tea chia, and top it off with their homemade jam, sliced almonds, and berries.
Hollywood and Beverly Hills
MK: I get the M Cafe Salad and Avocado Crispy Toast.
Ultimate Cheat Meal
MK: I love Mexican anything. My favorite at the moment is Salazar. Get one of every taco and share the flat iron steak and street corn. The (super) spicy margs are fire.
Osteria La Buca
MK: I like to sit at the bar and have cacio e pepe, fried Brussels sprouts and a bottle of red.
MK: (Duh). I get a Number Two with fried onions, Neapolitan shake and a diet coke.
Where to Stock Up on Workout Gear
MK: I’m an adidas ambassador. My favorite store is their Santa Monica Third Street Promenade location.
Barneys New York
The Grove, Fairfax
MK: I love to cruise through the high-end activewear and get something special, or use it as inspiration for my styling.
The Bearded Beagle
Loz Feliz and Highland Park
MK: I typically rock a sports bra, long tights and a vintage tee while I work out, so I go to this vintage store and always find a gem.
Where to Shop Beauty & Wellness Products
MK: I visit Lowell Metabolic’s online store. I take their daily multivitamin packs and use their Fruits and Greens powder in smoothies.
MK: This is where makeup artists get their products! They have everything.
Lassens Natural Foods & Vitamins
MK: I like to go to Lassen’s for teas and protein powder.
