Former Equinox trainers open a boutique gym in Soho


A trio of trainers created a sports-inspired, boutique fitness facility for privates and small-group classes to "bring out your inner athlete."

Soho Strength LabSoho’s newest workout spot, Soho Strength Lab, opened its doors this summer, and the athletic boutique fitness facility is almost finished decking out its sports-inspired training space and setting up a full schedule of small group classes.

The Mulberry Street gym was founded by three former athletes and seriously highly-credentialed, experienced trainers—Andrew Speer, Albert Matheny, and Ryan Hopkins. Speer recently worked alongside Shaun T. on his Asylum series, and was also a contestant in Racked’s Hottest Trainer search. (Just sayin’.) Matheny is also an RD and the founder of Source Organic Whey, and Hopkins competes in Olympic weightlifting. All three trained at Equinox Soho before, making it easy for clients to follow them just a few blocks south.

Soho Strength LabInside the space, an astroturf strip extends across one wall of the two-story space, and power-props like sleds, battling ropes, and kettlebells abound.

Personal training and small-group classes (that max out at 10 people) will focus on what they call “multi-planar athletic movements and strength training.” Translation: “We don’t want to make you sweat for no reason,” says Speer. “We want to make you stronger, fitter, and feel good, and teach you what your body is capable of. We like bringing out the inner athletes in people.”

Evidence that it’s working? W Magazine’s fashion director recently credited workouts at Soho Strength Lab with helping him to get through Fashion Week without a meltdown. —Lisa Elaine Held
