Today I’m joined by Jason LaRose, CEO of Equinox Media.
In this episode, we discuss the SoulCycle at-home bike and Variis by Equinox — the digital platform powering the content and connected fitness experience.
We talk about the role of the instructor, music, community, and programming in producing fitness content.
Then we look ahead to the return of exercising in person, and how Equinox will approach an omnichannel fitness environment.
Let’s get into it
