We kicked off the Equinox Club in the Hamptons. Drawing on the energy of the Full Moon in Virgo, we tapped into the practice of astrology and its positive self-care themes. As participants participated in personalized HIIT training led by Equinox trainers, they were invited to connect and reflect on their personal goals which were reinforced through group meditation.
Expanding on the importance of balance between mind and body and its contribution to overall well-being, we decided to explore the practice of yoga. By inviting Platinum Card®️ members to the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles (MOCA), guests enjoyed exclusive access to the museum and a personalized yoga class. Here, among dynamic works of art, participants understood the value of an inquisitive approach to life, whether expressing themselves or trying a new yoga technique.

While on the West Coast, we caught up with author, activist and entrepreneur Vishen Lakhiani, who illuminated the power of protest in Malibu with Los Angeles’ exclusive Five Sense Collective. After a healing sound bath, guests received insight from Vishen himself on how to unlock their best life using his famous 6-phase meditation method. After a practice based on gratitude, love and compassion, participants came away with a new appreciation for mental fitness and the central role we all play in our own successes.
Testing the drive and determination of the participants, we staged a packed day at the USTA’s Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, the largest tennis arena in the world. Taking control of the stadium for the day, guests were put through a series of drills and matches by Equinox coaches. Our host ? None other than Linsday Davenport, professional tennis player and member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Although known for her many successes, Davenport shared pearls of wisdom for attendees, particularly on the importance of learning from the good and the bad noting, “Losing can pay off more if you learn from it. »
Of course, we can’t talk about the high-performance life without highlighting the importance of nutrition – and we’ve found that pairing foods with your fitness routine can be viewed in the same way as how you pair food with your wine. Giving attendees hands-on experience with our theory, we invited Platinum Card®️ members to Peju Winery in Napa Valley, California. Guests spent the day joining a workout led by Equinox, taking an exclusive winery tour and enjoying a farm-to-table meal by Peju’s private chef. Experiencing a heightened understanding of the role of diet and fitness, participants were eager to continue their nutritional wellness journey with this new goal.
Back in New York, we gave guests a taste of how to up their fitness game with the hottest new workout, The Cut. Training 1,100 feet above Manhattan at SUMMIT One Vanderbilt, an immersive, multi-sensory experience atop Midtown Manhattan’s tallest skyscraper, participants joined The Cut, the dynamic boxing-inspired class from Equinox. As the first-ever workout class took place in this space, the class made participants sweat while watching the sun rise above the Manhattan skyline and left inspiration to change their routines from fitness.
