Fitness Factory Health Club
The staff at Fitness Factory Health Club splits its 18,000-square-foot gym's workouts over three floors, organizing space according to the trifecta of fitness: cardio, performance, and strength. Ensuring that clients first build a foundation for effective fat burning and endurance, Fitness Factory has stocked the first floor with cardio machines, many of which include personal TVs and touch-screen controls. Meanwhile, instructors demonstrate calming poses during candlelight Vinyasa yoga, aerobic hip-hop dance moves during Urban Funk, and whole-body workouts during CrossFit sessions. On the second floor, the windows and mirrored walls are lined with Star Trac and Life Fitness resistance-training machines, allowing patrons to focus on enhancing athletic performance, whether that means catching a football or completing a marathon in just one lateral leap. Then, on the third floor, the health club houses a collection of strength-training equipment that includes free weights, barbells, dumbbells, and squat racks. On this floor, instructors mount stationary bikes in the spin room, where they host a series of intense classes.
Personal trainers are also available not only to ramp up their clients' workouts but also to impart sage-like advice. After workouts, members can stop by the smoothie bar or soothe muscles in the locker rooms' dry saunas before picking up their kids from the supervised playroom.
Although they're spread across three area facilities, the staff at Fitness Factory helps exercisers with a shared dedication to workouts, wellness, and nutrition. Just because their mantra is the same, though, doesn't mean that all locations are the same; each gym has its own amenities and personality. At the Palisades Park location, for instance, members roam an 18,000-square-foot gym divided into three floors organized for everything from solo cardio, strength, and resistance work to group classes including candlelight Vinyasa yoga, CrossFit, and aerobic hip-hop dance sessions. The Rockaway location's Cinema Room treats exercisers to big screen showings of popular movies augmented by a state-of-the-art projection and sound system. Lined with actual ring ropes, the Boxing Room helps members bash out aggression while building muscle and confidence during pugilism-inspired workouts. When they're not busy leading hot yoga or Reformer Pilates classes, trainers at the Edgewater location often take exercises outside, saluting the sun during yoga classes held on a rooftop with panoramic views of the New York's iconic skyline.
In addition to their multifaceted amenities, all three gyms are official Ideal Protein Weight Loss centers, helping clients shed inches and keep them off through intensive nutrition education. They also house personal trainers, who stand ready to ramp up their clients' workouts and impart sage-like advice. After workouts, members can stop by the smoothie bar or soothe muscles in the locker room before picking up their kids from the supervised playrooms.
