Another fitness app? Well, technically, yes. But Equinox+ is sort of in a league of its own—and if you’re familiar with the Equinox roster of offerings, you’ll understand why. The app offers a single price for an all-access pass to the fitness giant’s signature brands: SoulCycle, Rumble, Pure Yoga, and more. Plus, if you were a pre-COVID Equinox gym devotee, you’ll love that you can once again take its (challenging!) studio classes with the same all-star instructor lineup: MetCon, Precision Running, Stacked!—it’s all there. The app is pricier than most, and you’ll obviously need equipment for some of it (like a bike for SoulCycle), but the library is extensive and always growing. I love the variety of classes at my fingertips, plus having meditation and mindfulness options for cool-downs and even for sleep. It’s basically a one-stop shop for all your athletic needs, and it’s made my workouts seamless and kept them fresh. —Amy Eisinger, digital director, as previously mentioned in SELF
I was recently offered a free trial of Equinox’s revamped workout app and am really enjoying it so far. It offers live classes (which I haven’t tried yet) and on-demand ones. There’s a ton of content, from SoulCycle to strength training, but it’s easy to narrow down by equipment, length, body focus, instructor, and workout style. My favorite classes so far are the [solidcore] ones, which are low-impact resistance training workouts using body weight, gliders (which I don’t own, so I use a pair of slippery socks), and hand weights. Unsurprisingly, the classes focus a lot on your core, often in addition to other muscle groups too. The moves are sneaky hard and the time under tension is killer—usually my muscles are shaking by the end, which I freaking love. —Carolyn Todd, senior health writer
The Equinox+ App costs $40 per month.
