Equinox South Beach
520 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL, 33139
Equinox isn’t an exclusively gay gym (in Miami or elsewhere), but it’s certainly a place that LGBT folk feel comfortable and safe in. Among its core values is the celebration of diversity and mutual respect, which are definitely values that we should all live by!
Equinox memberships cost a bit more than the usual – it’s at least $186 a month to access just the South Beach club, $215 to access all Florida clubs, and $285 to access all locations across the US. But Equinox is a luxury gym after all – for the facilities, classes, and overall experience, the price tag just might be worth it for you.
Open from 6am to 9pm on weekdays, except Friday when it closes at 8pm. Open on weekends from 8am to 7pm. Call (305) 673-1172 for inquiries.
