Avenue A's New York Sports Club now with ellipticals and monthly deals

Just taking our weekly look at the incoming New York Sports Club at 28 Avenue A between East Second Street and East Third Street…

The gym equipment has arrived … as well as a $19.95 monthly deal (no contract!) …

Oh, if this helps, then we'll use the long, lean gym-friendly arrows to point out the ellipticals…

Meanwhile, the facility is open for tours… per the NYSC website:

That "deal" is total BS. There is a huge fee to join. And their crappy signs are littering the neighborhood. Throw them out if you see them.

Ugh, so ugly. And that was such a charming building...

I stopped in and they said they are opening on March 2nd. There is a $50 annual fee and $19.95/$199 sign up or $29.95/$119 sign up or $39.95/$49 sign up.

That works out to between $40-$50 a month plus you can bring a guest any time. They have classes, towels, locker rooms (no steam or sauna). The space is nice and bright in the daytime.

At least it's inexpensive for the neighborhood. I'm not sure what would have been a better fit for that space but yes the signage is really ugly compared to what was there.

$19.95 with a $199 sign-up fee. Etc.

The strange things about their pricing scheme is that the first option ($19.95) is the cheapest. I don't know why anyone would choose either of the other two options.

I have no feelings about their signage, just as I had no feelings about what was there before.

Does anyone know what their hours will be?

Hours from what I was told
5:30a-11p M-F, 8a-8p S-Su

And if the above pricing was not clear:
There is a $50 annual fee every year regardless

$19.95 monthly with a one time $199 sign up fee
$29.95 monthly with a one time $119 sign up fee
$39.95 monthly with a one time $49 sign up fee

It's a month to month contract.
Also $12.95 fee for a day pass to use their other facilities.

Thanks, Anon!

I think the Dolphin gym on E 4th St by 2nd Ave is open 24h Monday through Saturday evening (and is cheaper), so this NYSC compares very poorly. But thanks for sharing the info.

7:25am - The other two pricing plans are there for the poor. The poor only have a small amount of money to spend upfront, so it's best to screw them over in the long run.

One advantage over Dolphin is that there are a whole bunch of NYSCs in Manhattan, while Dolphin has just the one. I presume membership at the Ave A NYSC gets you entree to all the others.

It's too warm and humid to work out in. Hated it

If it works for you go ahead. BTW, it's a know fact, if you do any type of contract, buyer beware. There is tons of members blogs about what was done to them. I.E. Impossible to cancel membership, double billing, collection agency, etc.
