It’s indisputable that Equinox is the best gym chain in LA, so we will withhold from an article on top gym chains in LA. However, some of the locations are dramatically better than the others. Note that Equinox has different membership tiers, so some may be at a higher price point. Here are our top 7:
1.) West LA: When you walk in you feel like you’re in a giant mall but it’s actually a gym that includes a pool deck, tennis courts, executive locker room, salon, shop, valet parking, and a restaurant and bar.
1835 South Sepulveda
2.) Century City: Often you’ll see a Rolls Royce or two sitting in the valet line at this location, which is smaller but certainly does not lack on quality.
10220 Constellation Boulevard
3.) West Hollywood: Best location for people watching and celebrity spotting, although we hope you do more than that at the gym (we say that because it’s not surprising to see girls socialize in heels instead of work out). Right in the prime of the Sunset Strip.
8590 Sunset Boulevard
4.) Beverly Hills
9601 Wilshire Boulevard
5.) Irvine: Large location (at 120,000 sf) with outdoor pool and cabanas, a eucalyptus steam room, a full running track, in addition to everything else you expect at a top gym.
1980 Main Street
10960 Wilshire Boulevard
7.) Newport Beach
19540 Jamboree Road
