What's Right For Me?


Your personality, skills and objectives are important in matching you with the right personal trainer. Equinox personal trainers range in level from Tier 1 level to master Tier 4 level. A trainer's progress through the Equinox Fitness Training Institute (EFTI) determines trainer level, ensuring increased skills as trainers are promoted.


Work with the Personal Training Manager at your Equinox to match your skills and objectives with the appropriate Personal Trainer. A positive, motivational relationship with your trainer can help forge the kind of working partnership that yields results you'll see and feel.

These trainers can help take your workout to a new level and develop creative programming designed to enhance strength and endurance while also teaching you new skills requiring balance and coordination.
