Equinox is not just a gym, it’s a lifestyle. The fitness space sets itself apart from others in New York City by developing a brand that promotes health, fitness and lifestyle. A unique concept, just like Michael Macneal’s “Monster Cycle.” When one walks into a Spinning class there are only a few things to expect: music, a bike, and an instructor telling you to keep pedaling. Now, imagine walking into an Equinox Spin class and there’s a projector in back of your instructor that’s playing the latest Lady Gaga music videos. One might call the “Monster Cycle” a cardio clubhouse. Dubbed the Spinning “Messiah” by the New York Post, Michael Macneal takes his Spin classes to the next level by incorporating music video set-list classes to his routine. Arguably, the most fun workout class you will ever experience. The various up and coming music videos on the projector suck its audience in. Macneal plays a various mix of upbeat music videos that sure gets the crowd going. He also plays personal mixes of whatever music he's feeling at the moment. It’s like being at a live concert while pedaling! Michael Macneal sat down to talk with Joonbug about his concept and how wonderful it is to work at Equinox.
