Want to look good for summer? It’s not too late. We turned to Dan Daly of Equinox at Columbus Circle to get his insider tips for getting in shape. This former collegiate all-American swimmer is a Tier 4 Coach (psst, that’s the highest level at Equinox!) who helped design the new signature swim program, EQX H2O, which launched here. One of the company’s flagship locations, Equinox at Columbus Circle often tests out the hottest new programs first.
We picked Daly’s brain on the latest trailblazing classes, his innovative approach to fitness, and his secret advice for how to achieve a killer beach bod.
What does being a Tier 4 Coach mean?
I might liken it to the special forces of our company. It’s made up of our most senior trainers and senior staff. Our more elite coaches are able to work together in a collaborative environment to take a holistic approach and help our members achieve their goals.
What is Equinox’s approach to fitness?
MNR, or movement, nutrition, and regeneration. We’re looking at movement, or fitness, as something that’s important for longevity. We’re looking at nutrition and how that drives performance and results. And we’re looking at the concept of regeneration and being able to recover from the training that you’re doing because your training is only as good as your ability to recover.
