Owner Nick Delury is one of Westchester Boxing Club’s top trainers and for good reason. He spent part of his 18-year boxing career training under Maurice “Kid Sharkey” Sposato, a seasoned coach that transformed Delury into a pummeling machine. Delury and his staff trainers, including a former non-athlete who flourished into a boxing guru with Nick’s help, preside over a circuit-style boxing gym where they cater to athletes who want to work out like pros without ever actually entering the ring. Open 24 hours a day, the gym allows patrons to move at their own pace with a trainer at their elbow or riding on their backs for an extra challenge. The instructors also lead group fitness classes and kids’ MMA classes, in addition to individual sparring sessions.
Lady America Westchester caters to the unique fitness needs of women. Certified trainers lead diverse, upbeat group classes that transform the body through punishing ab workouts, lightening-quick kickboxing jabs, and agile Zumba dance moves, each designed to produce visible results for ladies of all fitness levels. Personal training sessions can provide more nuanced plan for sculpting, toning, and burning calories, and instructors also offer classes in hip-hop and belly dancing. The spacious facility also offers a gleaming sea of stationary bikes, pin-select weight training gear, and free weights, along with childcare services and complimentary nutrition seminars.
The staff at Pure Fitness Club believe that part of improving the body is educating the mind. This is evident at their onsite school for personal trainers, but also in their trainers' willingness to discuss the nuances of fitness and wellness with their clients. Staff nutritionists help gym members create individually tailored meal plans that dovetail with clients' fitness regimens, whether the goal is to lose weight, build muscle, or train for a particular sport.
