Table of Contents

So, perhaps you are still on the fence about whether to join Equinox and commit to a full membership, which leads you to wonder whether you can join the gym for only one month.

However, Equinox does not offer a singular-month option in their membership plans.

Let’s dive into what Equinox does offer while comparing their prices/services to other gyms so you can make the best physical and financial decisions.

How Much Is A Membership At Equinox?

Monthly Membership

One Club Access

All Clubs Access

Initiation Fee



Monthly Fee






In total, to join the gym at the lowest, it would cost $268, and if you want to only join for a month, you must cancel before the next payment is due.

You can choose between one club access, meaning your membership is only valid at the club you signed up at, or you can select all club access that enables your membership to be valid at every Equinox gym.

Initiation Fee

Both options have a $100 initiation fee and a $0 cancellation fee which is always a nice added touch that gives you the freedom to cancel your membership anytime. 

This fee is reasonable as it lets the public know this is a high-end gym when joining. Especially as they have an excellent range of equipment, classes, and amenities like a steam room, swimming pools, and even a jacuzzi.
