The PROJECT trainer on her NYC-inspired workout, infrared saunas, and more.
Whether it’s a side hustle or some other creative pursuit, every high performer needs a passion—and a project. That’s the idea behind the new PROJECT by Equinox. It’s a “creative space for fitness rebels” in downtown Manhattan where breakthrough fitness talent creates innovative workouts ranging from The Sculpt Society (a total-body cardio workout that incorporates light weights and sliders) to The Ultimate Runner’s Workout (drills and unilateral exercises to improve speed, agility, and balance). Over the next six weeks, Furthermore is introducing you to six of PROJECT’s top trainers that are challenging you to move differently. This week we’re featuring Megan Roup.
Megan Roup’s relationship with fitness began with dance. The Santa Barbara native moved to New York City in 2006 to attend the Tisch dance program at NYU. Then, she went on to dance professionally for the Brooklyn Nets. It was through dancing, she says, that she realized the importance of a healthy and strong body, leading her to incorporate fitness into her daily routine and ultimately to become a trainer. Her class at PROJECT, The Sculpt Society,is a full-body workout that she says “is as challenging as it is fun and empowering”.
