Getting in shape in Los Angeles just got a lot more luxurious with the opening of Heimat, RSG Group’s five-floor, 75,000-square-foot gym and spa complex on La Brea Avenue. The monthly rate is about $350 and gives members access to an abundance of free weights, machines and cardio equipment — as well as classes including spinning, boxing, boot camp, barre, dance cardio, Kinesis, TRX, yoga and Pilates.
“Los Angeles to us is one of the most competitive fitness markets in the world,” RSG Group North America CEO Sebastian Schoepe tells Variety. “It’s the birthplace of physical fitness, and a lot of trends have started in L.A. … We created Heimat to disrupt what people thought a fitness club could be.
