As if LA wasn't already filled with star-frequented fitness studios. Per an exciting newsletter, Anne Hathaway, Naomi Watts and Camila Alve's favorite NYC workout, Body by Simone, is headed to LA very, very soon. We already knew that founder Simone De La Rue (she's sometimes called "the new Tracy Anderson") was en route to the West Coast, but now we know which neighborhood:
We've been bursting at the seams trying to keep this news to ourselves but we're so excited to announce that BBS LA is here! Keys are in hand and the team in West Hollywood is hard at work laying floors, hanging mirrors and getting the studio ready for all our clients and soon-to-be clients on the West Coast.
The bright and sunny space in West Hollywood will be the perfect place for all our diehard bi-coastal clients and a home away from home for any of you who find yourselves in LA craving a little BBS love. Of course we're most excited to expand our BBS family and spread that love to everyone out in LA as well!
Simone adds that things are moving along quickly, so you'll have a stylish new place to sweat in no time. See below for a peek at the new studio's progress, and learn more about her incredibly difficult dance cardio classes ($35) here.
