And it’s spectacular.
The club comes equipped with a strength room, cycle studio, chill-out lounge, spa, a juice bar, and locker rooms stocked with Kiehls. Equinox will also be offering a ton of different studio classes, including yoga, pilates, bootcamp, and boxing. I don’t know about you girls but this is music to my ears after paying a silly amount of money for Harbour Club in Chelsea (which I think is just a little too run down to be asking the kind of membership fees that they do) and before debating going back to the not-so-great Virgin Active on Fulham Road.
I sat down with a member of the Equinox team before they opened their doors last week, and here are a few tidbits that you won’t get from their website:
- Addicted to SoulCyle? It’s not coming to Equinox. At least not yet. Equinox bought the rights to the amazing spinning classes, but it won’t be arriving in the London gym for some time. But they do have studio spin classes with bikes that measure wattage, RPM, lap times and distance!
- As you know I’m a major Barrecore addict, but Equinox will also be adding their take on the popular ballet fitness method. I’m very much looking forward to checking out “Barre Burn.” Watch this space for a review…
- The crèche for your minis is not included. It never is anywhere, but I thought I would at least ask. It cost £7 for two hours, but there is a lot of interactive play with your little ones!
- Frequent traveler? Equinox is going to be creating some fab memberships for you ladies that go back and forth between the States and London. That way you don’t have to give up your New York membership, and can work out when you’re here in London.
Join ASAP as they are still offering memberships without the initiation cost!
