A vacation on Oahu may go a little like this: float in the ocean, lie out in the sand, drink a mai tai, repeat. But if going a few days without some form of exercise sounds more like torture than paradise, it's still possible to make like a tourist but play like a local. While a surf or stand-up paddleboard session is a must do when you're on Oahu, here's where the locals like to sweat it out — all conveniently a short distance from tourist-friendly Waikiki!
With Fall temperatures dropping, now's the time to head to sunnier skies that inspire you to get outside and move. Los Angeles fits the bill nicely; besides its thriving restaurant and arts scene, fitness is front and center as part of the city's draw. There's no shortage of juice bars to satiate your thirst, yoga studios to get your Downward Dog on, or running paths to help you hit the road. And if it's the latest fitness trend you're seeking, it's got that too. In the latest edition of Work Out Like a Local, find out where LA residents are getting their sweat on and then get ready to join them!

In this edition of Work Out Like a Local, find out where the Swinging City's residents are getting their sweat on and then get ready to join them!
To really get a feel of a new place you're traveling to, we believe you have to run up and down its hills, bike down its roads, and Downward Dog where the locals do.
