When TRX-focused boutique fitness club Equilibrium burst onto London’s fitness scene, we fell crazy in love with suspension training. But that was 2015, and we don’t know about you, but we’re ready to switch things up.
Good news! The minds behind Equilibrium are one step ahead — they’ve launched a flagship studio that promises to take your workout to a whole new level.
Based in Kings Cross, Equilibrium’s studio is a sight to behold. The impressive location has two separate workout areas, a cafe, a juice and smoothie bar, a retail space, shared workspaces, and much more.
But it’s not just the studio that’s gotten an updrade, their signature workout has also received a makeover.
First, each circuit-training session has not one, but two trainers at the helm. One will take you through each carefully-curated exercise while the other checks and corrects your form (that means there’s absolutely no hiding at the back and phoning it in during this class!).
It’s not just the top-notch guidance that makes the EQ class worth checking out, there’s also the epic training equipment. The high-intensity workout combines three of the most efficient pieces of fitness kit known to man—the classic TRX suspension trainer, the TRX Rip Trainer, and the SKILLMILL.
If you’re a sucker for classic TRX suspension ropes, you have to try the TRX Rip Trainer. It features a weight bar to take the burn up a level and really work your core. Then there’s the SKILLMILL. These curved treadmills are self-powered, meaning they only move as fast as you do. And if that sounds like hard work, you’re right, it is. But the endorphin high you’ll feel afterwards will be well worth it.
You won’t just be running in an EQ class, though. In addition to clocking miles, you’ll jump, twist, sprint, plank, and pull your way through the 45-minute sweat session.
And if all that seems a little terrifying, start with a beginners class to get a grip on how things work at Equilibrium, the fitness studio that’s evolving the idea of a traditional workout and daring others to keep up. We’re sure you’ll be hooked in no time.
