- Attitude Fitness at the Wilshire Grand
Located on the seventh floor opposite the pool deck is Attitude Health Club. It takes a new approach to the typical hotel fitness center by operating as a membership-based facility. The gym offers Angelenos and hotel guests alike a private, upscale, and state-of-the art facility that also offers a full complement of classes and workout programs. Cross-pollination with hotel amenities like the pool, expansive deck area, and cabanas provides space to accommodate water exercise, outdoor yoga, and poolside massages during off hours.
Our design integrates elements of everyday fitness equipment and components into the interior architecture. Three colors of TRX fitness straps, brightly lit, are arranged into a series of grand ceiling sculptures, starting over the front desk and ending at the entry to the locker rooms. The series is visually connected via a 2D graphic painted on the raw concrete core wall. A two-way mirror at the entry provides a reflective surface for the group fitness area while allowing views to the inside by people in adjacent areas, creating a theatrical, high-energy entrance. Finishes and furnishings take their cue from high-performance fitness fabrics and sneaker materials.
