Many may believe that downtown Los Angeles is where all the luxurious apartments and lavish lifestyles that follow them are at. However, here is a secret: Don’t count out Glendale. Located in the heart of Southern California, Glendale offers an enticing mix of culture, luxury, and comfort.

Located on North Central Avenue in Glendale, the Altana Apartment Homes luxurious apartments offers a variety of amenities. These include: private outdoor arena, beautiful quartz countertops, 9-foot ceilings, natural wood flooring, stacked washer and dryer, modern Italian cabinetry, air conditioning and more. Not to mention, the building itself features an accessible and expansive rooftop pool (so you can relax in luxury), outdoor fireplaces, demonstrations kitchens, and the list goes on.

From studio apartments in Glendale CA to 3-bedroom living spaces, Altana apartmets has something for everyone, especially when it comes to fitness. The building has not just a state of the art fitness center but a yoga room as well. That way, you can jump out of bed and into that downward facing dog in a minute or two. But, even if you aren’t in the mood to use the building’s amenities, the apartment homes are located to a number of fitness facilities you can check out and enjoy. To learn more about your fitness options, read on.

Glendale Yoga (5-7-Minute Drive)

Classes range from restorative to basic, hatha to bikram. Each instructor works to meet your needs, and each offers something special to ensure you enjoy your yoga experience. Proudly sporting a family feel, Glendale Yoga is a wonderful alternative to Altana Apartment Home’s luxurious yoga room.

Equinox Gym (3-Minute Drive)

Only a short 3-minute drive from Altana, Equinox Gym is the ultimate lavish fitness facility. The shower, locker rooms and gym itself is clean, trainers offer helpful fitness advice, and the staff is friendly (which is especially important if you are pulling yourself out of bed for an early gym session). Equinox takes gym classes to another level by providing not just non-heated traditional exercise classes but heated yoga and spin classes as well. From waking up to working out, enjoy the luxurious lifestyle by ending your workout with Equinox’s eucalyptus infused towels.

Jewel City CrossFit (7-Minute Drive)

Within 7 short minutes from the Altana, you’ll be immersed in an encouraging environment, pushing you to your physical limit at Jewel City Crossfit.

While on Mondays and Thursdays, relax and help heal your muscles from the weeks’ worth of strain by taking part in the complementary yoga for athletes session. Overall, Jewel City CrossFit is the best of both gym and personal training worlds.
