The PROJECT trainer on finding humor in fitness, the best Destiny’s Child remix, 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 Patrick McGrath.
McGrath grew up in Albany where his family celebrated both creativity and healthy living. It was that influence that ultimately led him to New York City to turn his passion for fitness into his career. “I believe it’s important to laugh while you train, especially during the hardest parts,” says McGrath, who teaches Sculpt & Strength at PROJECT. The certified personal trainer and influencer has over 10K followers on Instagram and has been featured in outlets ranging from Vogue to New York Magazine.
