2020 was the year of working out from home. Since gyms, fitness studios and other rooms filled with heavily-breathing humans became cesspools of disease, many of us opted for our living rooms instead for getting a sweat on. Peloton and spin bikes became all the rage, home gyms were pieced together with dumbbells, resistance bands and yoga mats, and we all made it work. If you’re not ready to return to your favorite boutique fitness studios, not to worry. You’ve got options for getting a great, studio-worthy workout at home. You’ve got Equinox+.
You’ve probably heard of Equinox — they’re a fitness company that owns bougie, expensive gyms across the country famous for their amazing equipment, top-notch facilities and cold eucalyptus towels. After a sweaty workout? Forget about it. They’re divine.
Now, Equinox has partnered with a few other fitness brands and created an app that brings your favorite studio workouts home to you. Equinox+ by Equinox is a fitness membership where you can bike with SoulCycle, box with Rumble, tone with Solidcore and more. These studio workouts used to just be available for people who lived close to a physical studio, but now you can access their top-notch instructors and fitness programming at home on your own time.
You can ride, train, meditate, stretch and more all within the app. They create a cinematic experience that goes beyond what you’re used to seeing on a fitness app, and puts you in the front row every time no matter what you’re streaming in from.
You can complete the cycling classes using your own bike, or you can purchase the SoulCycle at-home bike and pair that with your membership for an even more authentic and elevated experience. The SoulCycle bike is specifically engineered for maximum stability and has a commercial-grade frame for however and whenever you want to move on the bike. It’s got an immersive sound system that’s oriented towards the rider for a surround sound experience, and the high-res touchscreen is sweat-resistant and anti-glare so your viewing experience is as clear as possible.
The app comes with a 7-day free trial when you sign up and is $39.99/month after that.
