Equinox celebrates its 25th Anniversary today and all month long! This past Tuesday clubs all over the country held special classes and parties in honor of this milestone, including all four Chicago clubs – Gold Coast, Highland Park, Loop and Lincoln Park.
I attended METCON25 at Lincoln Park with the (always inspiring) Tanya Duggar. Her energy always motivates me top get through her challenging classes! This particular class was specially developed for the 25th Anniversary – a newer version of their signature METCON class with five high intensity rounds of quintuple metabolic conditioning and a challenging grand finale. I was drenched in sweat afterward, but ready to enjoy the party at the club! Guests were offered snacks, catered bites, Tito’s cocktails and special deals, like 25% off when you spent $250 at The Shop at Equinox. Their workout apparel is as cutting edge as their fitness classes.
Meanwhile our editors Alia and Taneisha were at Equinox Gold Coast enjoying Karim Tonsy’s “Birthday Beats” a special name for his Dance! class which is a hoot, and a fantastic workout too!
Happy 25th Anniversary to Equinox! I have worked out at some of the best clubs in Chicago in the last 25 years, and I mean it when I say Equinox is my favorite! Here’s to 25 more!
