The Valentine RD: The Tuesday Tune Up
"This week it’s the coolest group fitness class to hit Los Angeles: RockSweat Fitness. ... Music + Fitness + The (legendary) Roxy Theatre on the Sunset Strip = OH HELL YES! ... RockSweat isn’t just a workout in a concert venue, it’s a full-on experience. We’re talking club lighting, videos and a DJ with a sound system that accompanies a sweat session. This is not your general run-of-the-mill playlist from an iPhone kind of workout. It’s not every day that you get to do burpees on the floor where legendary artists like everyone from Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Peter Gabriel, Prince and even Duran Duran have been. "

thisfitblonde: RockSweat Workout Review
"What I didn’t expect was how truly music-focused the entire workout was. When we got there, the tunes were already pumping over the amazing Roxy sound system, and a screen onstage was playing images to match the music. As soon as you walked in, it felt like a night club – but without the alcohol stink and sticky floors (they clean it up really well for this event!).
The workout kicked off with Guerrilla Radio and I was already hooked – the 1-minute HIIT intervals were killer ... all balanced out by a (still tough) core segment.
Even cooler? During one of the cardio segments I was able to get up on stage and actually “demo” the workout with the instructors, which I of course loved."

The Chalkboard: Our 7 Fave Workout Trends for Fall Fitness
"Let’s face it: music can make or break your workout. The right tunes can make you zen during yoga, energized during spin – or ditch the gym mid guitar solo. We’re so happy that these new fitness classes are not only recognizing the power of the playlist, they’re putting music center stage. Just like the right mix can get you amped up for a party or help you wind down after a long day, these group classes are designed to put you in the mood for movement…and maybe even bring out your inner rock star."
