Boost your workout regime at this new six-level club house, which houses an infinity swimming pool, dry saunas, high-tech equipment, and more.
There are some things that the French do infinitely better, like artisan cheese, museums, and luxury fashion.
But gyms? You bet.
The newly opened Blanche, located in a former private mansion that’s been listed as a historic monument in Pigalle, has been lauded as one of Paris‘ best spots for a workout.
Spanning six levels, the clubhouse features high-tech equipment in ballroom-like settings, a 20-meter infinity swimming pool, steam rooms, dry saunas, a restaurant helmed by chef Jean Imbert, as well as an upcoming private cinema.
Guests are first greeted by the lobby, where a large contemporary steel counter, similar to the reception of a hotel, stands out between the historic marble columns.
Sharing the first floor is a spacious ballroom-style room that serves as a studio for group exercise and boxing classes, and Jean Imbert’s restaurant. The restaurant runs true to the chef’s style of using seasonal and sustainable ingredients, and offers nourishing post-workout meals, protein shakes, and cold pressed juices.
On the second and third levels, one will find state-of-the-art Technogym equipment spanning cardio and spinning machines. About a hundred classes are available weekly, including popular ones like HIIT (high-intensity interval training), TRX, pilates, yoga, and more.
Head down to the basement for the locker rooms, saunas, steam rooms, and an infinity swimming pool. The highlight is the stunning infinity pool, which comes with hydromassage jets that are perfect for soothing tired muscles.
Come September, the fourth floor will welcome guests with a 30-seater private cinema. Among the programs to come is a projection show paired with menus composed by Jean Imbert.
