The new fitness music club opens in the vibrant neighborhood of South Park, where modern high-rise residential towers, entertainment, sports, and dining intersect. Spanning over 33,000 square feet, JOHN REED is a symbiosis of fitness, music, and design. Members receive unlimited training opportunities from free weights, cardio, functional and machine strength training with top-of-line equipment to an array of boutique-style classes with dedicated instructors leading Cycling, HIIT, Pilates, Barre, Dance, Yoga, and more.

“JOHN REED Downtown Los Angeles gives our members the best quality and training opportunities in an environment that is immersive, elevated and inclusive,” said Robert Hull, Club Manager, JOHN REED Los Angeles. “I think more than ever, gym-goers want a place that really motivates and removes them from their everyday, a place that excites them. With our location’s eclectic interior, the music curation, and exceptional equipment, we give our members that experience.”

Merging functional design with a club-like atmosphere, JOHN REED goes beyond the typical gym experience. Each of the 31 locations around the world have their own distinct style and personality reflective of the culturally rich neighborhoods they are set in. The new Los Angeles club takes you from the concrete jungle of Downtown into a safari themed journey with inspiring and surprising design elements throughout the space. Art highlights include original pieces by LA’s internationally recognized artist, Robert Vargas, Berlin’s street art duo Ron Miller, and LA-based abstract artist Jaime Guerrero.

Combining hi-fi with fitness, the body-rocking club hosts live DJs, both local and international, for five sets a week. Turning it up even more, JOHN REED’s signature DJ-driven workout, the Boost Club, is a group class experience led by a live DJ and Trainer. The workout combines the best of strength, agility, endurance and core training and arranges them to the rhythm and the beats of the music to move and motivate. In addition to live performances and hand-selected mixes, everyone is invited to access the club’s carefully curated collection of music 24/7 through the free JOHN REED Radio App.

Furthermore, members get unlimited access to amenities from the Snooze Room and Sauna to relax in post-workout, stylish locker rooms with Dyson hair dryers and salon quality hair and body care, as well as small intimate coves as retreats for social interaction. Open to the public, JOHN REED’s Juice Bar offers handcrafted smoothies, cold-pressed juices, and grab-and-go healthy snack options. And here’s the best part; all memberships are simple, affordable, and month-to-month, with no initiation or cancelation fees. At JOHN REED, members are empowered to take control of their fitness journey.
