David Barton Gym Las Vegas
Guests entering a David Barton Gym for the first time might think they've accidentally wandered into a nightclub, and be tempted to trade their athletic shoes for a pair of high heels. The celebrity-studded gyms have cropped up in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, and aim to transport exercisers from their everyday lives into a wildly imaginative fitness playland whose statues, artwork, velvet sofas, and dramatic lighting are reminiscent of a movie set or fashion runway.
The Las Vegas location was personally designed by antiestablishment fitness legend David Barton, who told the Las Vegas Review Journal, "This gym will give the local Las Vegas audience an environment that's the alternative to the mainstream health club that they've become accustomed to." The 30,000-square-foot gym offers miles of cardio stations, each with their own LCD TV, as well as experienced personal trainers and yoga for all skill levels. The unconventional space resounds with music from international deejays and features an over-the-top locker room rumored to be the favorite alias-donning spot of numerous superheroes.
