Equinox's biggest and most upscale Los Angeles gym might be on Sepulveda, but its soon-to-open Bunker Hill location is sure to cause an equally large splash when it debuts next Wednesday, March 27th. The 28,000-square-foot fitness facility, which has been under construction for at least seven months, will open with ample space for spinning, yoga, pilates, cardio, boxing and more.
The space features a show-stopping wood and steel staircase, eucalyptus steam rooms, a 2,000-square-foot terrace for hanging post-workout, a shop filled with fitness merch by the likes of Stella McCartney and Beyond Yoga, a juice bar and a spa where the menu includes massages and facials. Equinox's CEO said of its Downtown location: "There has been a huge demand for an innovative, upscale fitness facility in a number of cities where the market is under-served. By opening in Downtown LA, our aim is to meet the needs of a discriminating consumer who demands the best and currently doesn't have the opportunity to get it."
