Equinox is the preeminent luxury fitness company in the U.S. today. Committed to offering a full service wellness experience to maximize life, Equinox offers a totally integrated approach to fitness.

Blink Fitness is part of the suite of Equinox Holdings Inc. including Equinox and Pure Yoga. Blink Fitness is a brand new look at the gym. Blink offers a super friendly, clean, motivating gym experience all for $15/month; whether you're new to fitness or looking for a fresh alternative, our upbeat environment and friendly, expert approach will encourage you to stay on track.

Within the fitness industry, a niche sector, budget fitness, has recently emerged and is well-positioned for continued rapid growth. A recent confluence of macro trends in both the economic and wellness environments has led to high consumer demand in the budget fitness space. Based on these trends, Blink was created to fill the need for a value-driven, highly scalable, branded gym experience that will simplify the gym experience to better service those already engaged in working out and also attract people new to fitness.
Conceived with a vision to give consumers an inexpensive, fast, and convenient workout alternative to traditional "big box" health clubs, Blink offers an innovative fitness alternative based on a low-cost development and operating strategy.

In 2010, Blink opened its first three locations in New York's Noho neighborhood, Yonkers and Paramus, NJ. The facility prototype is 15,000 square feet and includes cardio and strength equipment, unique design by David Rockwell, integrated technology and self-service retail programs. The current growth plan calls for adding an additional 25+ clubs over the next 12-18 months. By creating a branded, quality, professionally-operated and low-cost gym experience, Blink will quickly establish a distinct market position through competitive differentiation and a highly scalable business model.
