Construction work inside the upcoming John Reed Fitness West Hollywood has resumed after months of silence inside the former home of the 24-Hour Fitness Super Sport gym. The activity inside the WeHo location at 8612 Santa Monica Blvd began last month as John Reed Fitness Santa Monica celebrated its grand opening at 1202 3rd Street Promenade, on the weekend of Friday, June 23rd through Sunday, June 25th, 2023.
According to the City of West Hollywood’s eTRAKiT portal, drywall work was completed inside the building and improvements have been made to a new dry sauna. A peek inside shows that the ceiling in what used to the main lobby is still exposed but a lot of progress has been made in the area facing Westmount Dr.
According to photos take during WeHo Pride weekend, it looks like they are working in the back pool area. It is still not clear if they are keeping the pool. According to rumors, they wanted an indoor pool, but that doesn’t seem to be likely.
John Reed officially announced via their Instagram account that the WeHo location was opening in the winter of of 2023/24, stating that “great things take time.”
During the Grand Opening weekend of the Santa Monica location, the public enjoyed free club access to experience the space, along with special programming that included live DJs, classes and activities throughout the weekend, such as Cupping Therapy by Myodetox and a piercing station.
Located in the heart of Santa Monica at the corner of 3rd Street Promenade and Wilshire Blvd, JOHN REED encompasses three stories of state-of-the-art facilities infused with coastal vibes and an airy atmosphere. The new fitness gym has taken over the space of the former Banana Republic.
“We are thrilled to introduce the JOHN REED experience to Santa Monica,” stated Silke Hensel, CMO of RSG Group North America. “This location boasts a vibrant design, top-notch music curation, premium equipment, and a wide range of class offerings. The local community now has a fitness-oriented lifestyle space where members can connect, push their limits, and enjoy themselves.”
John Reed Santa Monica club offers a full range of fitness opportunities from free weights, an expansive functional training area, an outdoor training deck, relaxation room, machine strength training, cardio, and unlimited classes from HIIT, Pilates, Yoga and more within the 45,000 square foot club.
West Hollywood residents will have to wait a little longer for the grand opening of John Reed West Hollywood. Hopefully not much longer than this winter as their Instagram account has promised.
