Global high-performance lifestyle leader Equinox has opened Equinox Bishopsgate, an unmatched fitness offering in the City of London. The club was designed by our firm’s London studio and features five stories of unparalleled programming, luxury amenities and masterful aesthetics, marking the third opening in the capital, joining Equinox Kensington and E by Equinox St James’s—the latter of which was also designed by the firm.
Equinox is internationally recognized as an arbiter of luxury, grounded by substance and elevated in style. The club’s design point-of-view has been realized by the Equinox Design Team in partnership with our firm, where we served as the executive architect on the project. The club extends across 32,000 square feet of modern infrastructure with a unique light-filled façade. Every detail ensures the backdrop to the member experience is inspired across all five stories.
The group fitness studios will offer unlimited classes hosted by the capital’s most elite instructors, including signature workouts only available at Equinox. The Pursuit, an immersive and tech-driven cycling class that uses leaderboard gaming to ignite competition and InnerHeat, Equinox’s first signature heated yoga class. The revolutionary Precision Run will up-level the City’s treadmill offering like never before with its expertly crafted run-method. In addition, Equinox Bishopsgate will introduce Tier X, London’s most advanced personal training and lifestyle management program, which includes nutrition and sleep coaching.
“The breakthrough club will offer the high-performance London community experience like no other,” says Judy Turchin, Equinox’s Chief Operating Officer. “Centrally positioned within the City, Equinox Bishopsgate will deliver a holistic lifestyle experience without limits, helping our members to realize their full potential in all that they do – both inside and outside the club. London is a key growth market for Equinox, our commitment to the city is unwavering, we aim to have ten fitness clubs in the next five years, spanning over a quarter of a million square feet of prime real estate.”
Equinox Bishopsgate is a space for members to turn ambition into results. Every touchpoint is designed to push and reward the City’s high performers who live and breathe city life while providing respite and regeneration through carefully curated spa services. The Spa at Equinox is a dedicated recharge temple for body and mind, a place for powering down to power further.
Furthermore, members have exclusive access to the Equinox café, a place to refuel and connect set on the impressive mezzanine, and The Shop, which carries coveted and curated athleisure apparel by luxury brands.
