The family-run Astoria Sports Complex offers batting cages and indoor soccer, and has one of the largest fitness centers around. The facility got its start more than 30 years ago, when owner Steve Poliseno converted an abandoned ice house, purchased at auction, into the gigantic sports complex it is today. The most recent addition to the facility is a gigantic, Olympic-sized swimming pool, where kids can take lessons and prepare to be the Model U.N. delegate from Atlantis.
There are six essential ingredients that compose each of Complete Body's fitness programs: strength, cardio, flexibility, meditation, nutrition, and rest. Founder Alex Reznik is the mind behind this philosophy. In 1995, he founded the company believing that, if given the opportunity, most people would seek to better their health. Soon thereafter, he was proven right by both rising membership numbers and favorable media attention, including articles in Time Out New York and the New York Times.
Complete Body has now expanded to three locations. At each club, experts adhere to Mr. Reznik's principles, blending Eastern and Western techniques during classes such as yoga, boot camps, and kickboxing. Complete Body also hosts cross-training classes, which are designed to burn fat, build strength, and improve flexibility by focusing on six elements: strength, cardio, flexibility, meditation, nutrition, and rest. Among the state-of-the-art equipment and fitness technologies that help members reach their fitness goals, independent trainers utilize the facility with their clients. At onsite spas, massage therapists work tense muscles and aestheticians refresh skin with facials. Physical therapists can help to rehabilitate clients following injuries, calling upon various training methods in their arsenal.
Racquetball pros, take note: the New York Health and Racquet Club has two regulation-sized racquetball courts—hard to find in the middle of the city. That’s not nearly all that NYHRC has to offer, though. It’s conveniently located for those in midtown, so stop by during your lunch breaks or after work to take advantage of the huge six-floor space that is well-stocked with all sorts of weights, cardio, and strength-training equipment. The 52-foot saltwater swimming pool is excellent for the middle of the city and there are even special kids’ swim hours. Try out the intense jets in the whirlpool after a long exercise session—if the great classes and facilities don’t convince you to keep coming, the jets surely will.
One of the largest public recreation centers in the city, this place has all of your favorites to help you have fun and keep in shape. In the mood for swimming?

Fitness rooms, a game room, a dance studio and even a computer resource center are available to keep you occupied throughout the day. Classes ranging from gymnastics to yoga and even basic computer skills can help you improve a range of skills during your visit. Annual membership is extremely affordable, so give this rec center a try.
