Check out my review of BODY BY SIMONE for BurnThis below!
We were so excited to hear that Body By Simone was coming to Los Angeles! Located in the heart of West Hollywood, the inviting space has inspiring photos of owner, Simone De La Rue, and her equally stunning instructors displayed throughout the entryway. In between the photos, you will find motivational dance quotes encouraging students to just have fun and let go of judgment. The friendly, smiling staff continued to make us feel at ease as we prepared for the signature, cardio-packed dance class. There are two spacious studios located on different levels, both with open views of Santa Monica Boulevard. The top space is reserved exclusively for private and semi-private workouts, great for the celebrity clientele that frequent the studio. Our group class was intimate as well, as class sizes usually don’t exceed 20 people. The beautifully-toned instructor greeted each one of us personally and was able to give out lots of individualized attention. Class started out with 45 minutes of non-stop dancing. With each step, our hearts were pounding and sweat was pouring! Each song of the amazing playlist had a different choreography sequence that was repeated several times throughout class, making us feel like we were out with girlfriends on a Saturday night! The last 10 minutes incorporated weights to target and tone the arms, abs and core. By this point, we fully understood why Simone’s program is known to create the desired dancers physique! But after a quick stretch and cool down, we left class feeling energized, accomplished, and toned. We can’t wait to try out her other signature classes!
