What You'll Get
|_Jump to: Reviews||New York’s Strongest Mayors_|
Fulfill that New Year’s resolution you’ve been putting off with a taste of the longest-operating gym in the country. Today’s Groupon kicks your sedentary lifestyle behind: $29 gets you a one-month unlimited membership to either of Mid City Gym’s locations: 42nd Street or 49th Street.
Mid City gives you access to an abundance of strength, cardio, and cassette-to-cd transfer equipment. With tons of cardio machines, you’ll never have to wait for the elliptical or fight for the Stair Master—a pestering problem plaguing tons of overcrowded New York gyms. The resistance and weight-training equipment at Mid City is top notch: they’ve got a bevy of machines from brands like StarTrac and HardKore and loads of free weight: kettlebells, dumbbells, barbells, and sleigh bells. And the audio conversion equipment is consistently rated good to very good.
At a Mid City gym, the spirit of health and self-improvement will motivate even the potatoiest couch potato to hit the treadmill and pump some iron. Grab a second Groupon and bring a friend—you’ll be more inclined to hit the elliptical, give the bench a shot, or convert your collection of audio cassettes to a digital format when you’ve got a workout buddy.
Yelpers give Mid City Gyms four stars and Citysearchers give it three: > * The gym has good hours (until 11 on weekdays), fine range of equipment, and hasn’t been so crowded yet that I couldn’t do what I wanted to. – Kirill S., Yelp > * Very excellent no-frills gym… typically come here to work on the many different weight machines…Cardio here is pretty easy too, though you may want to bring an iPod – David G., Yelp > * Staff is fun, great hours, great personal trainning…I love the atmosphere especially and I bump into Leo DiCaprio or Hulk Holgan… – bonitao, Citysearch
New York's Strongest Mayors
Running New York is a tough job; you’ve got to be strong mentally, emotionally, and most importantly, physically. Here are some of the strongest mayors in New York history:
- Thomas Willett: In 1665, NYC’s first mayor dragged a monster truck down a city block with his teeth.
- Jacob Radcliff: Set a world record in 1815 by bench pressing sixteen horses stacked on top of each other.
- Robert A. Van Wyck: In 1899, Van Wyck picked up Long Island and moved it to its current location.
- Spider-Man: Beat up numerous petty thugs over a 40-year career despite never fully grieving over his deceased uncle.
- Michael Bloomberg: Jumped off the Chrysler Building and sustained no injuries.
