Tone Deaf Companies - Equinox

While other gyms are closing, Equinox hasn't said a thing on line or in social media about how they’re addressing the coronavirus. I’ve received no emails from them outlining their plans, how they’re cleaning more, or what their staff is doing in the gyms.

Their website is promoting money for referrals - “spread the love!”

They couldn’t be handling this any worse.

I haven't received any e-mails yet from New York Sports Club (which also has clubs in Boston, and D.C.).

I finally got an email from Equinox. They’re cutting the size of their group classes by half meaning only 20 can attend a class with a 40 person capacity.

So you only have a 50% chance of contracting the coronavirus. Unless you stretch on one of their mats and then you’re back to 100%.

I've received at least three emails from my Equinox in SF in the last couple of weeks about how they're doubling down on disinfectant, etc. Today's email noted the reduction in class sizes.

Equinox definitely didn't handle this very well. Gyms in the city of Los Angeles closed their locations a little earlier, but that meant Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and West Hollywood had to remain open (not sure if other ones remained open) a little longer. Official closing date for West Hollywood was afternoon on Monday March 16th. Last time we received any information from the company was on the app the day after, no email at least for me.

A member in Bethesda, MD tested positive & there were rumors of one of the NYC locations that was also affected, but I'm unsure which one. As far as I know, there was a notice sent to members at that specific location, but if that member had All Access/Destination/Executive status, that meant they could have gained access to ANY location besides that particular one.

Memberships are in Freeze status at no additional charge (normally $30 or so per month) but I know some people who want to cancel right now, but their messages/emails are not being addressed.

Sadly, a lot of employees who weren't paid a lot in the first place are seeing a reduction in pay, or they are being furloughed altogether. They consider those who are 'vital to reopening' the business as those who are still on the payroll, even at their 75%. However, the most crucial department (maintenance) is on furlough. Those poor employees worked their asses off near the end from what we saw. I guess this is the blue collar/white collar Equinox way of thinking.

Then again, Equinox never had their priorities right in the first place.

Equinox handled it better than 24 Hour Fitness did!

I posted this on another thread:

Anyone receive the email from the CEO earlier today? It goes over the new rules for when they reopen.

If half the amenities are not available to us, then we should pay half our membership.

by Anonymousreply 605/08/2020

Or members should be able to choose to continue having their memberships frozen until all amenities are available.

Anyone from Texas go to the re-opening?

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
