Century City was conceived to cater to entertainment industry titans and the hardcore health-minded alike
– John Klein

Located in Century City, LA, and designed as a chic and aspirational venue, the panoramic club will include expansive locker rooms with luxurious amenities, a 4,000sq ft (371sq m) outdoor lounge and convertible wall systems that enable an indoor-outdoor programming experiences.

“Taking aesthetic inspiration from a film production’s backlot, we utilised studio lighting, sound-proofing materials and lenses of film equipment as design touches that subtly nod to this vibrant community,” said Aaron Richter, senior vice president of design for Equinox. “Expansive 20-foot ceilings open the frame for picturesque floor to ceiling windows that are completely unique to LA and our facilities.”

John Klein, senior vice president, Real Estate, at Equinox, said: “Equinox Century City was conceived to cater to entertainment industry titans and the hardcore health-minded alike. The club’s premium executive experience includes locker rooms with integrated lounges, and services like laundry and valet.”

The club features four dedicated studios for yoga, Pilates, cycling and group fitness classes. Equinox instructors will lead a variety of classes, from The Cut, a cardio-forward boxing class, to The Pursuit by Equinox, an immersive, technology-driven cycling experience inspiring competition, and unique barre and hot yoga formats.
