Really nice little gym that fills the hole left by the departure of the NYSC on Broadway. As you might be able to guess from the name, this spot is very much a GYM. Don’t expect a lot of classes or personal trainers prowling the floor. If you’re inexperienced in the gym, there are other options for you. But if you’re just looking for a place to lift, this is a really solid option.
– Three power lifting cages, lots of dbs and kbs (db’s are in kilos for some reason)
– Machines, battle ropes, heavy bag, hex bar deadlift – they have a lot of stuff
– Doesn’t get too crowded
– towels and showers
– fast wifi (no cell service)
– very reasonably priced with no-hassle month to month membership
My first CRF class with Rodrick this morning. He has terrific energy and rhythm that keeps you going mentally when you are physically drained. Bring a lock as the lockers in the change room are old school.
It’s a small gym, but it’s a solid and very clean gym. There’s enough equipment presuming it doesn’t get overly packed to do just about everything with the exception of cross fit training perhaps.
I think this gym caters more to people who cross train (seriously and consistently) between anything along the lines of bodybuilding, power-lifting, yoga, cardio and overall functional training.
Located right by SoHo and with a comparable monthly rate to other solid NYC gyms, it’s a great deal bar over-crowdedness.
Like a number of reviewers have already noted, the gym is small but it’s clean, well stocked with plenty of equipment, and (in the few months I’ve been a member) never too packed. There’s a dedicated deadlifting station, three power racks, plenty of dumbbells (the heavier ones are in KGs for some reason?), and a small studio for cardio/HIIT workouts or classes.
There’s no cell reception, which for me is a plus as it keeps me focused, but the wifi is quick.
Overall the gym is a great value for the price and way cheaper than some alternatives in the area. I switched from Equinox after being a member there for 5 years and don’t regret it at all. The only reason it loses a star is because it’s a bit of a pain to remember to bring a lock for the lockers.I constantly forget and end up toting some things around the gym with me.
“Highly recommended gym. Good value for money, and the trainers are serious! Been with the same trainer for years and last year we moved to this gym in Soho and its been such an improvement, great location, new equipment and fresh!“
