Go Pro with Monarch Athletic Club
A new all-encompassing mind and body fitness and wellness hub has opened near Sunset Plaza Drive. The striking black and orange work out room features cardo equipment, Pilates, weights and dangling black punching bags. The membership also includes professional lifestyle consultations and recovery plans by Dr. Ryan M. Greene. Another amenity that sets them apart is massages, IV therapy and their partnership with Tocaya Organica next door for healthy meals and a private basement club that actually serves cocktails for a detox-retox.

New Kind of Bôrd Room
Before your next meeting at the WeWork offices in the big red building at the Pacific Design Center, step into the personal grooming enclave of The Bôrd Room. Thanks to founder, Avi Slavin, self-care time is easier to maneuver from a shave to a shot of whiskey from the well-curated selection. Perfect for busy executives, athletes and actors from Billy Kemper to Arjay Smith who need barber services and some bro-time. They didn’t forget the ladies and offer styling for women, CBD and Theragun massages.

Facile for Facial TLC
When your skin needs a little pre-red carpet pampering, duck in to the this hidden cosmetic dermatology boutique tucked away in the heart of the West Hollywood Design District. Nancy J. Samolitis, M.D. will tailor a product plan and regiment for your skin from micro-needling to laser therapy, micro-infusions or cyrofacials. The popular Clear and Brilliant is a Laser Genesis which stimulates collagen and smooths out the complexion with zero downtime so you won’t miss a thing.

Workout at FaceGym
This studio located at the 1 Hotel West Hollywood offers much more than a typical facial but a workout for your skin. And now you know why Super model Karlie Kloss and designer Alexander Wang look so sculpted. Concentrating on the muscles first, the “trainers” literally put your face through the same paces as your body with a warm-up, cardio, sculpt and cool-down through a series of hand movements, gadgets and high-tech machines. You’ll never look at a facial the same way again.

Rip, Row, Repeat at Health House
If rowing is your preferred cardio of choice, Heath House is the place for you. A person can reportedly burn up to three times more calories than other workouts while using 86 percent of your body’s muscle mass. This low-impact 45-minute session also makes more sense for eliminating stress on your joints and you can gain emotional support from your trainer and other members of your “crew.” And, hopefully, one of them will be co-owner Patrick Schwarzenegger or investor Kevin Hart.
