Equinox Announces Entry Into Vancouver Market

Brand's First West Coast Club to Complement Active Lifestyle Needs of Vibrant Community

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - July 13, 2016) - Equinox -- the high performance lifestyle leader -- today announced its forthcoming entrance into Vancouver, BC, with the opening of a pre-sale location at 1131 Robson Street on July 18, 2016. The club opening in late 2016 will mark the brand's third location in Canada and first on the West Coast of the country. Conceived to complement the unique lifestyle needs of this active community, Equinox has combined the latest in programming with visionary design for an extraordinary fitness haven centrally located on West Georgia Street in downtown Vancouver.

"Equinox has found its match in Vancouver, where vibrant city culture meets high performance living -- both indoors and out -- and we're excited to offer a new community hub within this market," said John Klein, Senior Vice President, Real Estate for Equinox. "Energized by the naturally stunning setting of the city and its surrounding landscape, Equinox Vancouver is part of our continued growth in Canada and internationally."

Centrally situated in Vancouver's downtown core, and steps from its luxury shopping district, the club will offer industry-leading personal training and innovative group fitness along with a spa, juice and food bar for pre- and post-workout meals. The club will incorporate elements of the Pacific Northwest into its space by combining bleached walnut woods and concrete floors with reflective metallics to capture both modern urbanity and pristine nature.

"Vancouver is full of inspirational settings, and we were careful to incorporate the city's rich architectural heritage and neighbouring green space, Stanley Park, into the design," said Aaron Richter, Vice President of Design. "The resulting space greets members with ample natural light, as well as a monumental 25' high atrium, lounge and fireplace. We envisioned a grand home away from home that makes committing to Equinox a stylish, year round event."

Equinox Vancouver will offer expansive training options that include six different studios including The Pursuit by Equinox cycling, yoga, Pilates and a dedicated barre studio.

Equinox will also offer a dedicated lounge space for gathering, meetings and work, luxury locker room amenities, pre- and post-training nutrition in a cafe, and regeneration programming in their studios and Spa to create an unparalleled lifestyle destination.

Equinox charter members in Vancouver will have the opportunity to participate in outdoor classes leading up to the club's opening. For additional information, please visit: www.equinox.com/westgeorgiast
