Health scare: IG-Fit closes on 14th Street

So much for making your 2023 fitness goals any easier. 

The IG-Fit Health Club closed at the end of 2022 at 244 E. 14th St. near Second Avenue.

A sign on the door for IG-Fit members states that the gym lost its leases after a "protracted litigation with our landlord originating from COVID-mandated closure." (There isn't any mention of the closure on the gym's website or Instagram account.)
In a sliver of a silver lining, management apparently struck a deal with GYM NYC at 155 E. Third St. just east of Avenue A for IG-Fit members to "immediately continue your fitness routine." 

And "for those who work or live further north, we also made arrangements with Synergy Fitness" at 1781 Second Ave., which is pretty far north of here at 96th Street.

Gym moves: IG-Fit replaces Synergy on 14th Street

The Synergy Fitness Club at 244 E. 14th St. near Second Avenue has closed (members — was there any warning?) ... and signage is now up for its replacement — IG-Fit.

IG-Fit looks to be offering an array of services, including infrared sauna and cryotherapy. Although they bill themselves as NYC's No. 1 health club, we can't find any web or social-media presence (not even Instagram!) for them. So no word on rates, etc.

Hopefully it will be an upgrade from Synergy. Through the years, several EVG readers noted sketchy practices and unreliable hours of operation at this Synergy branch.

And as seen outside the gym a few years back...
