Equinox member Margo Lopez is reaching new heights at her home club.

“I sometimes struggle to slow down," says Group Fitness instructor Matt Ortel. "Strength training shortens muscle fibers, so it’s super important for me to release tension.”
That's why he’s focusing on stretching, yoga, and meditation during Variis's Forward—Together challenge.
How do you release tension? Let us know in the comments. #ItsNotFitnessItsLife
“My style changes just like my moods,” says Equinox member Casey Culver. “Sometimes I want to be loud and noticed, and sometimes I want to blend in with the crowd.”

Winter can’t keep us out of the water.
Swimming in the saltwater pool at Equinox Hotels is an immersive experience. The walls are clad in carved basalt stone to invoke the motion of water, and the chrome ceiling reflects the pool to help backstrokers check their form. #ItsNotFitnessItsLife
There's a science to sexual satisfaction.
For women, one of the most erogenous zones is the forearm. For men, it's the area behind the knees. #ItsNotFitnessItsLife
Our architecture is more than aesthetics. It’s motivation to improve.
“We try to design spaces that inspire you to do something better than you did the day before,” says Aaron Richter, SVP of Design. #ItsNotFitnessItsLife

- Have plants at every meal

It’s #CropTopSzn, even in Chicago.

Refine your lunge like Harrison Mercado, Variis instructor and Tier X Coach at Equinox Summit:
-Step forward, positioning your lead leg at 90 degrees and hovering your back knee.
-Slightly lean forward at the bottom to build tension in your quads and glutes.
-Breathe in through your nose and forcefully exhale as you return to standing.

Tier 2 trainer Jessica Bogdanov and Group Fitness instructor Katherine Menna show off their moves in this week’s Drop. https://bit.ly/3maTOnC
All battle rope moves build strength, but if you do only one, make it the double-arm slam. The shoulder, back, arm, and core muscles have to work harder to produce maximum power through that extended range of motion.
Add at least 2 rounds of 30 seconds on, 60 seconds off to your strength session twice a week. Over time, progress to 60 seconds on, 120 seconds off. #ItsNotFitnessItsLife #EQXInTheWild
What does “tough” mean to you?
“Tough to me means being able to be vulnerable, being able to show that you are human, that you can connect and relate with others, and always allow room for growth in every aspect of life."—Group Fitness and Variis instructor Ceci Perez
