History

The first Equinox Fitness location opened in Manhattan's Upper West Side on September 23, 1991. In 2006, Related Companies purchased the Equinox Fitness from North Castle Partners and J.W. Childs Associates. The original owner was the Errico family. In 2008, Equinox brought Pure Yoga to the United States from Hong Kong, which it operates separately. The two brands do not cross promote each other.

2016 Ad campaign controversy

In early 2016, the company got mixed reviews for images used in their latest advertising campaign.
