Recently, Dancing With The Stars Kym Johnson started her own Fitness studio in Richard Simmons’ former iconic Beverly Hills fitness studio. Below is more from US Weekly….
Sweatin’ to the Oldies no more! Richard Simmons closed the doors of his iconic Beverly Hills fitness studio, Slimmons, after 42 years this past November, but a new tenant is moving in — and you just might recognize her from TV. Dancing With the Stars pro Kym Herjavec (formerly Kym Johnson, the dancer wed season 20 dance partner, Robert Herjavec, in summer 2016) is taking over the space formerly occupied by Simmons and starting her own fitness empire, starting with a studio called The BOD.
Herjavec, 40, who will dance with another ’80s television icon, Mr. T, in the show’s upcoming 24th season, says she first visited Slimmons “years ago” when she brought her mom, who was visiting from Australia, to take one of the fitness guru’s aerobics classes. “His energy [in the class] was just so infectious,” Herjavec tells Us Weekly. “He just radiated positivity.”
Following in Simmons’ high-energy footsteps, Herjavec says that The BOD will offer “really fun” fitness classes including a barre class taught by a former Rockette, a Broadway fitness class where participants will learn routines set to show tunes and dance workout classes that she’ll teach herself. In another nod to the studio’s former tenant, Herjavec will also lead a weekly class set exclusively to ’80s pop music. The dancer explains that she wants to make exercise fun again. “I designed the classes so they target muscles in your arms and legs — and it’s definitely a workout, you will see results, but it’s a great mixture of cardio that instead of just running on a treadmill for 30 minutes, you’re getting it in by dancing.”
Citing Simmons as a “huge inspiration,” Herjavec says, “I want to continue doing the same thing he did. I’ve got a great group of people already on board who are passionate about fitness and health and being positive and really kind, nice people. I wanted to create a group of instructors and trainers who are kind and caring as well. It’s about being able to come to a place where you feel safe and you feel good about yourself being there.”

Maks Chmerkovskiy talked with the Las Vegas Review about choreographing for “Le Reve — The Dream” for the Wynn in Las Vegas. He also chatted about Dancing With The Stars, his health and fitness, and his more dear project of all….his new son and Peta.
Tell me one thing that your fans would be surprised to learn about you.
I’m not a dick; I’m not an *sshole. I’ve kept my life open with fans, not like many famous people do. I appreciate the audience and know that people love watching what we do. I’m responsible with my craft and product. I have a hard time believing that people are fascinated with my life. I’m just a regular dude with a normal, regular family with regular beliefs.
We did the best with what we have. I have strong stances with certain issues, and that can come across as hard-headed. It’s not my personality. I have a job to do. I’m inside my car outside my house right now, and I can see paparazzi staking out our home. Amazing! We’re not that couple; we find it interesting and funny.
You’ve left an indelible mark in Las Vegas with “Le Reve — The Dream” at Wynn Las Vegas. Any plans for more choreography work in the future? What does the future hold for you?
We have plans for Las Vegas in the near future and new opportunities. We had a successful summer tour with Val. Las Vegas is in the talks with my production company. It is in full swing this year, and we have an amazing cast and pool of people who are show-caliber and high-end quality.
I’d like to parlay this into a Hollywood career. I’m passionate about acting and am waiting for the right project. Dancing is obviously going to be at a forefront to live healthy and be happy and young as long as possible. Dancing is the only way I can prove it.
My biggest project is my son and Peta. I fall in love with her more and more every day. It has been an incredible year, and we’re about to open a Las Vegas dance studio, our 10th, at Tivoli Village. I’ve been a Las Vegas semi-resident for eight years, from working at Wynn to spending New Year’s Eve there. The studio has been a long time coming, and we are extremely excited.
Lots more at the Las Vegas Review. I’m loving this interview.
