EQXMOMS: A Look Inside Our Equinox Event

It’s hard to find an excuse to skip the gym with an Equinox membership. Over the summer months, I frequented their upper-east and upper-west side locations. Both super luxe, cutting-edge clubs are extraordinary in size, amenities, and quality.  Beginning with their Equifit fitness analysis, to getting my butt-kicked by petite powerhouse trainer Heesun Kim.  All while my kids enjoyed Equinox classes of their own.  Equinox’s commitment to accommodating families while helping children thrive via their For Kids Only Programming is one of the things we love about their wellness model.

When I had the opportunity to co-host an event for NYC influencers  – along with my friend Ellen of Baby Meets City, we couldn’t wait to share our Equinox experiences alongside the sprawling club offering with a solid group of parenting, lifestyle, beauty bloggers, and business owners.

Inside the upper-east-side location, our #EQXMoms event began with a trip to the kids club.  We dropped the kiddos off while the adults toured the multiple rooms designed just for kids.  From a top-notch pre-school to specialized For Kids Only programming, Equinox offers so many great programs for tots and big-kids alike.  My own adored the play clinics specialized tennis lessons, and I loved watching their budding-confidence soar.  During our event, the dedicated kids’ staff lead the children through glittery art crafts, creative play, a kids yoga class and freeze-dance party ending in the kids club disco room. Our pint-size guests had a taste of the caliber of kids programming available at Equinox.  Under the care of upbeat, engaging and enthusiastic staff – the little ones didn’t want their private party to end!

A true treat for the women came in the form of a yoga class lead by our dynamic instructor Patricia Pinto. There’s power in doing something good for yourself while surrounded by strong, supportive females.

Aligned with our wellness theme, we were so excited to send attendees home with membership trials, several great goodies from Equinox and additional brand partners.

Equinox’s fridges stocked with chilled eucalyptus-infused towels on every floor are a true post-workout treat – and we love that Herban Essentials allowed guests to leave with the gift of essential oils.  I have a personal obsession with their pure essential oil towelettes, and always have them tucked in my wallet.  Herban Essentials make essential oils on-the-go simple; without having to deal with the hassle of mixing or carrying actual oils. Event attendees were all able to experience the pure, fresh and purifying towelettes available in essences of orange, lavender, eucalyptus, lemon, and peppermint.

Rodan  + Fields covered skincare with samples of their transformation products with proven results.  We even had a consultant on hand, who has been able to build a thriving career with R+F and leave her corporate job to spend more time with her two young children.

Healthy snacking came in the form of Crispy Green – 100% natural freeze-dried fruit snacks.  Perfect for both kids and adults, since fruit is the only ingredient.  The delicious taste comes from the fruit only, without added sugar, preservatives or artificial ingredients. All seven flavors are delicious!

Lastly, guest were encouraged to continue with their yoga practice, with the gift of yoga mats by active-wear maker Zobha – we’re big fans of their work-out-wear collection that make looking stylish and put-together a breeze.

Equinox | For Kids Only Summer Program NYC

The end of the school year is officially in sight and summer plans are being solidified.  And this week, Equinox Sports clubs, here in NYC, rolled out the red carpet for parents and kids alike with their For Kids Only summer programming at their Upper East Side and Columbus Ave Locations.  I hopped into the designated kiddie section to observe day one – and their flexible kids camp, aligns perfectly with Equinox’s luxe standards.  With multiple cheerful rooms and super-fun programming, little ones (ages 2-6) engage in age-appropriate designated actives throughout three-hours of morning play.

With a five-to-one, kid-to-caregiver ratio (or typically two-to-one if young toddlers are present), parents can rest assured that their little are well-cared for and engaged while adult workouts take place.  Not a member?  No problem.  Equinox offers flexible enrollment options for non-members too.

Contact Equinox on the Upper East Side or Columbus Ave locations to enroll your child, and contact a club near you to learn more about the elevated fitness offerings and ultra-exclusive amenities at Equinox.
