Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld likes to stay in good shape. I would suggest that this is a requirement given his busy life and the need to fit into all those swank suits. He currently works out at Equinox near his home in New York City. Yes, our spies have seen Vlad coming and going at Equinox and even working out! Monsieur Restoin-Roitfeld prefers kickboxing and typically wears RVCA gear for his sessions.
Equinox boasts nearly twenty locations throughout Manhattan with the options for exercise that you might expect such as yoga, Pilates, cardio, martial arts, and boxing, all in a hip urban setting. In case you need to pick up a new gym outfit, they also sell designer gym wear including the brands Splendid and Stella McCartney. Equinox has clubs all over the United States as well as one in London and a soon to be opened site in Toronto. They pride themselves on attention to detail and having the most sought after fitness instructors and personal trainers.
Equinox also leads the way in the latest fitness programs. No, these people are not auditioning for the circus, it’s a form of fitness called Jukari Fit to Fly, a joint development by Reebok and Cirque du Soleil. After your workout, you can grab a shower in the Equinox locker room, luxuriously outfitted with Kiehl's products, or enjoy a massage or body treatment at their spa. Of course, all these cutting-edge classes and uber-talented fitness instructors, not to mention the luxurious setting, come at a hefty price — the membership fee of $150 per month.
One wonders if workouts at Equinox helped Vladimir's big sister Julia Restoin-Roitfeld take off all the baby fat after the birth of her daughter, Romy. Our insider has yet to spy Julia sweating on the flying trapeze…
We are also waiting to spot Carine Roitfeld wearing an Adidas tracksuit... For now Vladimir certainly looks sporty chic in his!
