Quiz: Which DC Luxury Gym Should You Try?

If you’re looking for a luxury gym, you’ve got two good options: Vida or Equinox. But which is the best fit for you?

Boutique gyms are big: More studios are opening to offer just one or two types of exercise, be it indoor cycling or barre. But for those who can’t stomach dropping $30 on one hourlong class, two full-service gym chains, Vida Fitness and Equinox, give you the luxe experience of a boutique with a membership that features a lot more than one kind of workout. Because both are known for their superstar trainers, fleets of exercise machines, and five-star amenities, you might struggle to decide between the two. Take our quiz to find out whether you’re #TeamVida or #TeamEquinox.
