In the bustling corner of Selma Avenue and Cahuenga Blvd in Hollywood, the highly-anticipated Dream Hollywood stands high above the Los Angeles scenes as a fun and relaxing getaway. From the open-air lobby to the bar welcoming you as you walk in, every detail of Dream Hollywood ensures that you're living the good life.
We had the pleasure to attend the grand opening of the Gunnar Peterson Gym inside Dream Hollywood. Now, I know what you’re thinking. “It’s only a gym! What’s the big deal?” This gym isn't any ordinary gym. Like everything with Dream Hotel brand, it's the best. First of all, this gym’s design and equipment was personally curated by celebrity trainer, Gunnar Peterson. Gunnar Peterson is known as one of the leading fitness gurus in Los Angeles with clients including Jennifer Lopez, the Kardashians and the Lakers. So basically, Gunnar doesn't play any games. Gunnar takes exercise seriously but makes it fun, which you can tell by the variety of the equipment in the gym. There’s even monkey bars to help you get into the action!
Gunnar walked us through a workout rotation involving kickboxing, chest presses, lunges, squats and ball tosses. No pain, no gain! He admits, “So many hotel gyms are an afterthought. Dream Hollywood grabbed it by the horns and put fitness first! It’s about time. While no one will ever stop the Hollywood nightlife, you can certainly balance it out with a conscious approach to health and wellness. From the gym to the rooftop to the menu you can stay on track when you stay here. I loved designing this gym and keeping the spirit of Hollywood alive and well and fit! You will not be disappointed.” To add his personal touch, Gunnar is also hand-selecting and training an elite staff which will offer, one-on-one sessions, as well as a curriculum of innovative group workouts.
After our intense but invigorating workout, we concluded the high-energy afternoon with refreshments at the gorgeous open-air Dream Hollywood rooftop, The Highlight Room. The 360 views of Hollywood will have you in awe! From daytime fun to exciting nightlife events, The Highlight Room has you covered. Thanks Dream Hotel and Gunnar for making workouts fun again!
