This is an old post because I haven’t been to the gym. I have gone 75 times but have 100 more to go. It’s not September and that means I have to go 25 times a month.
I somehow convinced my husband to decrease the total amount to 150. I now have to go 75 more times. It’s the middle of September. Wish me luck!!!
What changed? Well, I just don’t want to wake up super early for no reason anymore. Getting to the office at 7am was great when I was super busy but my workload has decreased and I find myself finishing my day’s work too early. I can leave at 3pm however I feel bad when everyone is still hanging around.
Next week is a new week and my co-worker is signing up for Equinox. We plan on going to cycling together on Mondays and Tuesdays after work so I have no excuse.
I can go to the gym by 7am but it’s still too crowded for me. I like working out with senior citizens.
I love the Beverly Hills location mostly for their showers. Oh and the proximity to the office of course, but that’s not really equitable.
Out of all the Equinoxes I’ve experienced, the BH location has the largest showers. The time that I go only attracts senior citizens so I’m so good with that. I’m so particular that I started to wake up even earlier than when I first started so I can park right in front. I don’t like parking in the garage because it’s hassle. I go early enough where the street parking laws aren’t enforced. I like to go from door to door essentially.
The staff is wonderful in the mornings, Shayma is great. I now have gone too many times that she knows me by my name which I like. It’s always nice to be greeted with my name.
The locker rooms are spacious, however there aren’t any tall lockers like Newport and Westwood (only two I can think of that has it, oh and maybe a NY location). Westwood has a sitting area, and the locker room is MUCH larger, but the showers are tiny like Newport and Huntington.
I remember when I first joined Equinox in 2009/2010 ish. I remember times in my life by the boyfriends I’ve had or what job I was working. I was riding my GSXR600 to Irvine for work and decided to get a membership in Newport. I first went to Sports Club in Irvine, but it was too expensive for me at the time, so I opted for the $135/month trap with Equinox. I’ve been a member ever since and couple years after joining, I upped my membership to All Access, still no access to Century City and more recently the Sports Club takeovers.
Now I pay… well just up until last month, I paid $208. They’ve increased $5 every year. I just recently got a letter in the mail and they are upping my dues $10. So now I’ll be paying $218 for April and until they decide to raise the price again.
