Equinox is proud to be the recognized industry leader in Personal Trainer Education.
All Equinox Personal Trainers are required to complete 150 hours of in-house mandatory education to ensure our members receive the most knowledgeable level of service in the industry. This allows our trainers to create exercise programs that are stimulating, challenging and fun.
EFTI personal training courses include anatomy, kinesiology, exercise physiology, post rehab protocols and the proprietary Three Cycle System – a program design approach that emphasizes the need to create exercise progression that stimulates change over time. All classes are taught by Exercise Physiologists, Physical Therapists and Kinesiologists under the supervision of the most respected experts in the field.


In addition to our in-house education program, we offer Equinox Academy in New York City and Los Angeles to aspiring personal trainers. For course details, frequently asked questions, and to enroll in a course, click on Equinox Academy
