With its signature killer cardio classes, Physique 57 has made addicts of trim New Yorkers like Kelly Ripa, Kim Raver, Karolina Kurkova and Parker Posey. Hollywood starlets might be next.
The gym currently has locations in Soho, West 57th Street and Bridgehampton. But on June 3, the first West Coast location of Physique 57 will open on North Cañon Drive in Beverly Hills.
“Physique 57 has captured the vibe of New York and the Hamptons, so when we were thinking about the next location, Los Angeles was the obvious choice,” says Jennifer Maanavi who co-founded the company with Tanya Becker.
West Coast director of training Shelly Knight relocated to Beverly Hills in February to help open the new facility — a near facsimile of its East Coast counterparts — along with Kimberly Russell Denkhaus, another instructor formerly based in New York. “I have trained four [instructors] and I’m in the midst of training two more. The training process is very intensive,” said Knight. And as the New Yorkers can tell you, so are the classes.

“I am of tradition, but that doesn’t mean I have an old outlook on life,” Hubert de Givenchy told WWD in an interview in 1978. The legendary designer, who died last week at the age of 91, achieved wide success soon after launching his own couture boutique in the early ’50s, but he refused to pine for that time. For the first time since its original publication, read our interview with Givenchy on his awe for Audrey Hepburn and looking forward. Link in bio. #wwdarchives #fbf (📷: Pierre Schermann)
About last night: @alexachung and @supergausa toasted the launch of their capsule collection. “It’s the shape that I love, so rather than amend the last and make the sole crazy or do anything wild, we just did really subtle additions that I think make it look really luxe-y,” said Chung. #wwdfashion (📷: Marc Patrick)
