Mission Statement

Equinox Fitness Training Institute (EFTI) ensures the scientific integrity of all movement, nutrition and regeneration programming behind the Equinox personal training model. We hold ourselves accountable to the principles of the human body and the evolving peer-reviewed research that drives the methods we use to affect it.

Guided by a relentless focus on maximizing the knowledge potential of all Equinox trainers, EFTI's mission is to propel measurable client results through structured and progressive education that inspires breakthrough individualized program design


The Equinox Fitness Training Institute was founded in 1993, two years after our first club opened its doors. Equinox was the first ever fitness company to offer consistent and progressive education as a value add to both the personal trainers and the client alike.

With the goal of providing the best education possible, the curriculum was designed and reviewed by world renowned experts in the fields relating to and progressing our Movement Nutrition Regeneration (MNR) Strategy.

Along with the internal curriculum, EFTI also oversees and coordinates all continuing education for personal trainers company-wide. By bringing in external experts to provide one or two day continuing education workshops and instruction on specialty programming, we consistently advance the timeliness and quality of information delivered to the training staff.


It is our goal to use the highest level of education possible to drive quality programming that leads to client results. With our training backed by a solid foundation of education, we are able to help all individuals in implementing the right behaviors relative to their health and fitness goals and needs.
