Five Things Megan Kohan Loves
Want to know where the pros go? We’re asking Best of Boston winners to divulge their five favorite places in Boston. Below, Megan Kohan, the general manager of the Equinox fitness club on Dartmouth Street, shares her picks.
Equinox Dartmouth Street Shop
“The shop offers exclusive and unique pieces that can be worn to and from the club—pieces for a high-performance lifestyle in the gym, behind a desk, or out for leisure. The best part about the shop is you won’t find these pieces all around Boston, so you’ll always get compliments and people asking ‘Where did you get that?’ ”
Equinox, 131 Dartmouth St., Boston, 617-578-8918, equinox.com.
“Located right on the water in the Charlestown Navy Yard, Pier 6 offers one of the best views in the city! It offers a roof deck, a private dining room, and a bar on the water! All the food is full of unique flavor, with my favorite being the lobster roll!”
Pier 6, 1 8th St., Charlestown, 617-337-0054, pier6boston.com.
“Offers some of the best choices for shoes, dresses, jackets, purses, and jewelry! All reasonably priced, especially to pick up designer items. Recommend following on Instagram for all new arrivals.”
Covet, 395 W Broadway, Boston, 617-268-1100, covetboston.com.
Haymakers For Hope
“Haymakers For Hope is one of the most life-changing opportunities I’ve ever been given. My first interaction was supporting an Equinox member and fellow employee. After witnessing this captivating event, co-founder Andrew Myerson convinced me to apply. I trained for four extensive months at Equinox and The Club by George Foreman III to prepare for my three rounds, two minutes boxing match, while raising over $7,000 for breast cancer. I have never worked so hard in my life for a cause that affects so many of our loved ones! I would suggest taking part in this organization any way you can—especially as a boxer!”
The Spa at Equinox Franklin Street and Dartmouth Street
“The newly renovated Spa at Franklin Street offers massages, facials, waxing, and body treatments. I see regularly Beverly Woods at Franklin Street and master therapist James Rosenblum for a deep tissue massage that’s guaranteed to fix any pain while resetting the body. Being a massage therapist myself, these two therapists are the best in the city!”
