Equinox Bishopsgate: the City of London's new elite fitness club

Equinox, the luxury global fitness brand, is opening an elite club in the City this winter. Equinox Bishopsgate will be a five-story fitness club bringing an all-new high performance home to London’s financial district

Equinox is known for its unparalleled blend of elevated luxury and science-backed programming. Founded in New York City in 1991, the company was built on the notion that fitness can empower a life well-lived and foster a strong community of high performance individuals.

Nearly 30 years later, Equinox operates 100 full-service clubs globally across major cities including New York, LA, Miami and San Francisco as well as London, Toronto and Vancouver, featuring bespoke design in an unparalleled luxury environment. And now, it’s setting up shop in the City.

Equinox Bishopsgate will feature five floors of state-of-the-art fitness equipment, stunning design, and unparalleled amenities. Expect an unmatched fitness experience designed to push and reward the City’s high performers.

As a member, you’ll benefit from science-fuelled personal training (including lifestyle, sleep and nutrition coaching), as well as unlimited group fitness classes.

There’s a dedicated yoga and barre studio; a private pilates studio; a cycling studio, featuring the Pursuit® [see below]; luxurious locker and steam rooms; and a café and members’ lounge. The Shop at Equinox features a coveted collection of activewear brands. Spa services include facial and regenerative massages to help with your recovery. And there are even chilled eucalyptus towels on every floor to refresh you during and after your workout.

THE PURSUIT

An immersive cycling experience like no other, The Pursuit uses groundbreaking in-studio gaming and data visualisation to drive competition and inspire peak performance. Face the dark in two distinct rides where projections of your progress will push you and your teammates to compete and connect with the communal power of the room.

The Pursuit uses data from bike power meters to upload graphics, games and leader boards which are displayed throughout the class. These boards display top rider metrics to fuel competition and ignite rider accountability. The class incorporates team, partner and one-on-one challenges, expect enhanced sound systems and digital projections to power your ride.

The Pursuit Burn is a series of precisely timed HIIT intervals designed for maximum calorific expenditure during and after class, focusing on maximum wattage. While the Pursuit Build incorporates varying hill stages designed to increase strength and endurance, optimized caloric expenditure and performance, focusing on average wattage.

Grounded in the core tenets of movement, nutrition and regeneration – and backed by a Health Advisory Board of industry-leading experts across these disciplines – Equinox offers a holistic fitness approach like no other.
