Where The Science Of Fitness Meets The Art of Living


Lotus Chi, General Manager of Equinox La Jolla UTC

I’ve been working with Equinox for about five years, starting with a short stint at Equinox Century City in Los Angeles. From there, I built an incredible team at Equinox Sports Club Orange County, then moved to start a brand-new adventure in the San Diego area. La Costa has welcomed us with open arms, and I can’t wait to expand our incredible community of high performers to Equinox La Jolla UTC.

With already over 100 clubs, Equinox is excited to open its second club in the San Diego market. Equinox La Jolla will be built for those who, the brand says, live “out of bounds.”

Powering exceptional lives all over San Diego county, Equinox La Jolla UTC will include dedicated Group Fitness, Cycling, and Barre studios, plus a Yoga Studio set up for Hot Yoga. All classes are unlimited and complimentary to members.

The club will also be equipped with one of the largest Playgrounds in the brand’s portfolio—an outdoor training space where members can work out in the fresh air. With industry-leading Personal Training, a café by Earth Bar, a full-service Spa, and The Shop where members can purchase all their training apparel, Equinox La Jolla will be poised to become the premier fitness club in San Diego county.

Science-Based Personal Training

”Working with my trainer is the highlight of my week,” says Lotus. “Knowing that my program is made for me and catered toward the results that I want.”

Considered Design

“There’s a sense of calmness and connection to nature that members will feel throughout the club,” says the architecture team behind the club, “which is reflective of a community that so often communes with the natural world.”
