Sure, Equinox has state-of-the-art fitness equipment and a packed roster of cutting-edge classes, but thats not what manages to propel members out of bed on subzero mornings. Rather, its the workout clubs super-luxe details and extras the Zen-inspired locker rooms, the $400 hair dryers. Its also easy to delay heading back out into the cold post-workout, too, with Lululemon yoga wear in the shop, bronzing services at the in-house spa, and mango smoothies at the clubs restaurant, an outpost of local favorite B.Good.
