The folks over at the Equinox on Greenwich Avenue in the West Village are nothing if not vigilant when it comes to keeping their floors nice and clean. A Racked correspondent writes: "Looks like the Equinox on Greenwich Avenue is getting itself some new flooring. I'm not an expert on gym floors, but these tiles seem to be an upgrade from the ones that are currently in use, which will surely make the, er, boys happy. Also, these palates don't fit through the Equinox service entrance, so the maintenance staff is loading them in a few at a time." Very nice. And now, if only exercisers would make a habit of wiping off the machines and...other surfaces after usage.
