Though the majority of Manhattan department stores and boutiques are closed today, chain gyms appear to be running business as usual. Not to be outdone by SoulCycle—who sent out an email this morning announcing additional classes—Equinox and Blink Fitness will also remain open today and tomorrow.
The Equinox homepage reads: "Yes, we're open. All of our clubs are keeping normal hours. We're here for you." Meanwhile, a staffer over at Blink in Noho informed us they'll be open until 11pm tonight, with plans to reopen at 5am tomorrow morning. However, as an email from one of Equinox's general managers cautions, use your judgement when deciding if an afternoon sweat session is worth the journey through hell and high water to get there.
