Some of the coaches are worthwhile, but the studio itself is awful. It's in a small office space, there is no locker or changing room, only a bathroom with a lock that doesn't work.
The studio can't regulate its heat, and I was there a couple of times when it was far too hot. Also there isn't a water fountain, and their bottled water bubbler disappeared during the month I went there.
I, like a lot of other reviewers, left something here during a class and couldn't pick it up because no one ever answers their phone and it's not open for any regular hours.
As far as instruction is concerned, some of the coaches are fine, some refuse to explain the exercises or even demonstrate them. I don't understand the point of telling a class to do a one armed burpee if a) no one in the class is fit enough to do it and b) you're unwilling to even explain what it is. S
Also the instruction was occasionally dangerous, not in a "you might hurt yourself from pushing yourself too hard" way but in a "we're going to run around in a circle with heavy weights in our hands really close to each other and if the person in front of you drops the weight its going to hit you in the head" kind of way.
If you want to push yourself try Exceed, Tone House, or the Fhitting Room. There are plenty of worthwhile studios in NYC to try.
They are also going to try and make you pose for a selfie at the end of the class.
Was hard to get a hang of things as a newbie and I wish there was more focus on form than on speed but it was a challenging fun workout and there’s a real push for team building!
They were super awesome about getting my Groupon redeemed! Absolutely can't wait for my 1st class
Good instructors and classes get a sweat going. Space is very small though. Unlike some of the other groupon's like epic hybrid you have to use all 10 classes in a month, which I didn't realize and went on vacation after using 2. So probably good value if you can get all 10 used in a month.
I've really enjoyed the class and the instructors. I've been sore after each class. My only concern is the cost after the Groupon voucher is over. 300 a month for unlimited 30 min classes is a bit much
Great workout and amazing trainers.
This place is awesome. If you are looking for personalized training in a group then this is the place for you. It was my first day and Coach Will made modifications for me so I did not feel like an outcast. The vibe is positive and there is a lot of encouragement to help you feel accomplished. Thanks Coach Will!
I haven't used it yet. I wanna refund cause they don't pick up or answer their emails.
Merchant and staff of WRKNYC are very professional yet personable. They are warm,welcoming,pleasant and knowledgeable in their craft. I look forward to future classes/workouts!
The place is tight, like a narrow studio apt with no lockers to change?! However, LaVerne who taught the Total Body session was great! I have a few more sessions to go and I look forward to seeing what the other classes are like.
