If it wasn't for Equinox, I probably wouldn't be in the gym everyday.  I love everything about it from the smell, the people, the staff, the locker room, the equipment, the towels, to the inspiring instructors!  It's hard to find amazing classes that are worth the 45 minutes, but Darryl Gaines has a high energy spin class that will get you hooked and Angel Alicea's Boot Camp class is not for the weak!  They really know how to whip your booty into shape!  The cost is pretty steep at $180/month or $6/day if makes you feel better but "It's Not Fitness.  It's Life." and well worth it!!!
