Ron Zalko Fitness & Yoga in Kitsilano has hosted a more than their fair share of celebrities over the years.
It started with Jane Fonda in the 1980s. Since then, the facility has hosted Faye Dunaway, Ryan Reynolds, Zac Efron, Linda Carter (aka Wonder Woman), Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Biel, Seal, Jessica Alba, Diahann Carroll, Hugh Jackman, the Rock, Sylvester Stallone, and Kim Cattrall. But perhaps the most exciting icon to date is Lady Gaga.
As reported by the Straight, on May 26, Lady Gaga dropped by for a workout lasting an hour and 10 minutes with other members of the club. And she even signed her name on the wall.
“She was terrific and down to earth,” Zalko told the Georgia Straight. “She kissed me on the cheek.”
He also said that she cracked many jokes and sang along with the music as she exercised. Zalko and his wife Kathleen collected cellphones from the other patrons to ensure no unauthorized photographs were taken.
Zalko said that Lady Gaga was accompanied by two security guards and they came into his facility through a private entrance.
Once she arrived, she asked if exercise bikes could be moved into the studio, where she participated in a spinning class created for her.
