Mamaroneck’s The Spa at Equinox Grants Guests Use of the Gym and the Spa
Work out those muscles, then work out the kinks with a deep-tissue massage or several other treatments.
Reward yourself after a workout with a sports massage and facial at Equinox.
Why Go? One, you’re in a gym, meaning that simply by booking a treatment you can enjoy the spa and all of its facilities (steam, exercise machines, classes). Two, you don’t have to be a member to enjoy the spa and its many options. Mostly, though, it’s the bustling everybody’s-here-for-a-reason vibe that makes you feel so comfortable. The pros here know that, after working hard (either at the office or on the treadmill), you deserve to recover just as hard. And that means massage therapists who know the difference between a sports massage, a deep-tissue massage, and a Swedish treatment, and who accommodate your wishes with their expertise. Despite its size—there’s a small reception area and just four treatment rooms—the spa offers a wide range of services, including body polishes and waxing.
Plan Your Day: 8 am: An hour on treadmill or elliptical plus a shower; 9 am: 50-minute ($115) Sports Massage (ideal for pre- or post-workout flexibility, recovery, and restoration); 10 am: 50-minute ($125) Men’s Facial (a deep-cleansing, exfoliating treatment); 11 am: steam shower then back to work—but not before grabbing a house-made smoothie and sandwich from the café.
