Take the January Challenge at Equinox Fitness Clubs

Though the pride associated with having a really small waist size should be inducement enough to get fit in 2012, nothing's more motivating than getting VIP treatment on-the-house. That's why Equinox is offering a Complimentary Three-Day Trial for prospective members, and issuing the January Challenge* to new sign-ups: work out 12 times in 30 days, and get your initiation fee returned.

Take the trial, and relish a 72-hour tasting plate of comp'd amenities, including:

-Cutting-edge equipment that will tone and tighten in infinitely more innovative ways (and possibly places)

-Group fitness classes like ViPR, Barre Burn and Blockbuster Body. The newest program 3Sum is a 500-calorie workout that will leave you feeling equally fulfilled and exhausted, but not at all awkward

-Post-workout bliss in the form of an Equinox locker room with eucalyptus steam rooms, Kiehl's Since 1851 amenities and eco-friendly, cotton towels

-Well-deserved rejuvenation in The Spa @ Equinox with treatments like the Chocolate Facial and the decadent Gold Standard, which uses 24k flakes to make your skin glow – not to mention all the full-body scrubbing, buffing, and primping you never thought you'd be down for until suddenly you were

Members can challenge their routine in a one-on-one session with certified graduates of the Equinox Fitness Training Institute, which does not teach Spandex Logistics, but is the industry leader in personal trainer education. Sign up today for the Complimentary Three-Day Trial at Equinox.com, and finally retire that vibrating barbell to the novelty drawer.
