East Coast Fitness’s 20,000 square feet house separate rooms for martial arts, spinning, group workouts, massages, and general exercise. On the main floor, strength-training machines, cardio machines, and free weights occupy separate areas, with additional room sectioned off for stability ball exercise and a herd of eight punching bags. Certified trainers and instructors also lead more than 15 classes that range from spinning and Pilates to yoga, kickboxing, agility training, and Zumba. In the lobby, a juice bar refreshes hungry athletes and a separate room offers free childcare.
World Gym maintains its 35-year legacy of body-sculpting know-how at its various globe-spanning locations, jump-starting workout routines with cardio equipment, free weights, and more than 50 weekly exercise classes. Taught by certified trainers, classes at this 34,000 square foot facility include yoga, spin, and Zumba to name a few. After running, jumping, lifting, or stretching, exercisers can retire to saunas that vaporize stress with misty heat. A colorful, carpeted childcare center entertains youngsters as parents submit backs to certified massage therapists who wrestle tension out of muscles, and plenty of on-site parking is available.
CKO’s trainers boil their philosophy down to three words: Be, Do, Have. Those trainers all found their passion for pounding the stuffing out of heavy bags at the gym itself before rising through its ranks to teach there. The approach they fell in love with favors fitness training over combat, and pits students against the weightiest bags around to simulate a boxing match with a rhino.
Light streams into the second-story windows of NYC Fitness, illuminating hardworking exercisers as they pound away on cardio machines or lift weights in the sprawling gym. Meanwhile, expert instructors lead clients of all fitness levels through a slate of classes, including spinning, Pilates, and Zumba.
David Ross first found his tiny hands inside boxing gloves at the tender young age of eight, but punching was not the only thing he learned with them on. He also learned perseverance and self-discipline, lessons which he passes on to his students of all ages through New York San Da Kickboxing. Drawing on his multiple black belts in Korean, Japanese, Thai, and Chinese fighting styles, he teaches striking and grappling arts from around the world. The most intense class he offers prepares competitors for mixed martial arts tournaments, blending Ross’s – and his other instructors’ – many fighting styles into one devastating cocktail of techniques.
