HAMPIONING toned tor­sos and pa­leo di­ets, Los An­ge­les is prob­a­bly the globe’s trendi­est fit­ness cap­i­tal. There are or­ganic juice bars on ev­ery street cor­ner, jog­gers with butts so tight there’s zero jig­gle, and celebrity per­sonal train­ers with the same ku­dos as Hol­ly­wood A-lis­ters.

Now, there’s a new wave of fit­ness tak­ing hold in La La Land – the type that doesn’t even feel like you’re work­ing out.

Feel-good fit­ness is grip­ping the West Coast and there’s not a gym mem­ber­ship card in sight...

Maybe it’s some­thing to do with LA host­ing the Olympics in 2028 – the third time since it first hosted in 1932 – but LA al­ready feels, well, a whole lot sportier in prepa­ra­tion.

Ac­tiv­i­ties and pas­sions like surf­ing, skate­board­ing and climb­ing have al­ways been pop­u­lar in LA, but now they have a new spot­light shining on them.

They are three of five new sports an­nounced by the In­ter­na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee that will de­but at Tokyo 2020, along with base­ball – yet an­other huge LA favourite – and karate.
