After a long hiatus, I rejoined Equinox this year because frankly they are taking over LA and have the nicest facilities in town. I cabbed it to Equinox MDR, had them hold my skis and luggage at the front desk LOL and was thankful to have a place to shower and do my makeup. I do think that Yogaworks has Equinox beat in terms of yoga offerings, but the overall variety and quality of Equinox classes is unparalleled, especially for those who want to continuously switch up their routines. If you have muscle soreness and want an easy workout and self-love session that will relieve tightness in hamstrings and hips, then this is the class for you. Slow-moving and relaxing. I tend to think barre classes will be relaxing and easy, but this one was straight up bootcamp. This was a morning class and not quite what I expected for a barre class as it lacked traditional barre-type exercises. It was mixed levels with a lot of older people and there was way too much cardio and jumping jacks. Would not do this one again. Let me start by saying this is an am Friday morning class, and I was not prepared.
From Equinox to SoulCycle to Peloton, here's who's winning spinning.

Instead, many turned to Peloton , the at-home cycling company, for their fitness fix. Last year, Ms. Clark said. There are many other converts out there. Peloton is seeing record growth, with revenues up 66 percent compared to last year during its fiscal third quarter that ended March
As a SoulCycle enthusiast, I thought my destiny was set but one day, after walking past rival studio Peloton Cycle, curiosity caught this cat and I stepped in. My spin cycle started and I decided to try out seven more classes. The biggest complaint about spinning I hear from friends who try it, other than the pace and effort required, is that the dance moves in some classes are impossible to follow. With that in mind, alongside the level of difficulty and pace, plus ambience, here are the nine top studios compared, with a personal best and worst. Illuminated with neon and black lights, this class packs the most energy and excitement. Picture the instructor pounding on drums that will feel like your heart pumping out of your chest. Hudoba also teaches classes here, and with a strong following, he knows students by name and will encourage them throughout the ride.
