[VIDEO] Here's What it Takes to Become a Equinox Instructor in New York City

New York Magazine's Vulture has a great video series called "The Deep End" in which producer Mady Mills finds out out how hard it is to make it in New York City by trying various careers she has no experience with whatsoever. In this recent video from the series, watch as she learns what it takes to become a fitness instructor at an Equinox gym.

What does it take to make it as a fitness instructor in New York? I have no idea. Exercise is something I partake in out of necessity not enjoyment, and I’m more uncoordinated than most. Regardless, I decided to find out. So I tried to become a boxing instructor at Equinox, one of the most prestigious gyms in New York. It wasn’t pretty.
