The big boys of fashionable fitness, Equinox and SouldCycle, will be requiring proof of vaccination of all of their New York attendees starting early in September. In an internal survey of its members and employees, Equinox had found that an overwhelming majority of support for its vaccine mandate.


So, no biggie. Sadly, all of SoulCycle's cycles go nowhere, no matter how hard you pedal, so if you just have to sit there and take the abuse if the anti-vaxxers come up on you all, "don't card me vaccine Nazi!"



Equinox acquired a majority stake in SoulCycle back in 2011. Equinox has over a 100 clubs worldwide and 36 in New York City. SoulCycle has 99 locations worldwide and 19 in New York City.


All that will be required by New Yorkers going to either brand's facilities is a one-time proof of vaccination, a paper copy of an immunization card or a digital vaccine card.


Some accomodations will be made, according to Equinox, to those who have medical or religious reasons for not being vaccinated, but it's not quite clear what that means in practice.
