Does Equinox have childcare?

Busy parents have no time to spare. Personally, balancing my kids, work, family and everything else—finding time for fitness is incredibly hard. 

My secret? A gym that offers childcare. It's the ultimate parent hack to free up time for yourself, plus give your little one some socialization and engagement.

What about Equinox?

You got it. Equinox does offer childcare, at 38% of their locations.  We appreciate their dedication to busy parents—squeezing in a workout becomes much easier.

Got it. Which locations have childcare?

We're tracking 106 of their locations throughout the country. Exactly 40 of them have childcare.

What can I expect from Equinox's childcare offering?

Info is really light. We're searching through their web pages and social, but Equinox doesn't clearly describe or define their offerings.

That doesn't mean the childcare service is bad, it just means we don't have a lot of info online. Here's what we do see:

  • Separate open/close times for childcare vs the gym hours.
  • Dedicated kids attendant. Of course, they need to go through their own state/county approved requirements.
  • Age-appropriate toys

We'll continue to look/call and reach out to the Equinox team, and definitely update this page soon.

Is childcare free at Equinox?

Unclear on this as well. While you'll need to be a member to check your child in—of course—we're not seeing any pricing or membership guidelines for Equinox.

Quite disappointing, in my opinion. For a luxury, upscale brand, one would expect a higher level of detail and description—especially for an amenity as important as childcare. 

Why childcare or daycare makes sense for busy parents

  • It's convenient! On-site babysitting facilities means parents can reliably get their exercise done without fear or worry of their kids wellbeing. It becomes an actual one-stop for the day to make sure you don't miss a workout.
  • It's safe! Daycare facilities require certain health and safety standards, usually mandated by the county or city. This often means at least CPR certification, along with other safety protocols.
  • Provides Interaction: Many babysitting/daycare services at gyms focus on engaging playtime activities—giving your kids a stimulating environment where they may play games and with other kids.
  • It's flexible: We like when the childcare hours are clear and easily found. This makes planning our workout both flexible and reliable. Parents, you know how it is to juggle schedules—especially around nap time!
  • It gives great Peace of Mind: Happy kid = clear mind = great workout. All is intertwined. Knowing that your child is entertained and well-supervised gives you great peace of mind. Your mind is then clear to help give your body a great workout!

Wrapping it up

Alright parents, good news if you're considering Equinox. Yes, they do have childcare, at 40 of their locations. No, we don't have pricing or other details :(

Still, they're definitely worth consideration if you're looking for an upscale, luxury fitness provider.
