A groundbreaking new study at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine reveals that Personal Training at Equinox can have a dramatic impact on fitness levels. We’ve known it for years – now it’s official.
The study reports that during a 12-week period, those working with Equinox Personal Training for three sessions per week:
• Increased their lean body mass by 3.3 pounds, while self-trained group saw no change.
• Increased muscle strength by 42% vs. 19% in self-trained group.
• Increased muscle power by 10% vs. 0.1% in self-trained group.
• Increased VO2 Max by 6% vs. a 3% decrease in self-trained group.
We’ve got the numbers to back us up. We’ve got the most committed trainers in the industry. And we’ve got pristine equipment and dedicated spaces for unencumbered functional fitness. Have we got your attention?

We offer all those interested in personal training the opportunity to receive a complimentary Equifit Assessment and guided workout. Administered by our personal training staff, this two-part introduction allows our trainers to connect with you on a personal level, establish your goals and, based on your results, identify where to begin your program.
Our proprietary Three-Cycle System is designed to keep you continuously stimulated. Once you finish 3, you return to Cycle 1 at a more advanced level. No plateaus allowed.
Our trainers complete 150 hours of education at the Equinox Fitness Training Institute (EFTI). Rigorous and world-renowned, it’s unlike anything else in the industry.
In the first study of its kind, UCLA’s Geffen School of Medicine confirmed that three sessions per week for twelve weeks gave Equinox members significant increases in lean body mass, muscle strength & aerobic performance.
We believe in the power of open spaces. They promote free-form training and multi-joint movement that mirrors our three-dimensional, real-life bodies. Equinox is leading the way with this type of ground-based exercise — a dynamic form of movement that’s less likely to lead to injury or boredom. We still love machines, but our future includes more open space in every club. Let us show you how to use it.
If you train at the expense of sleep, science shows you could be causing more harm than good.
