The best way to navigate NYC's fancy fitness scene on the cheap? Intro deals! And just in time for the official start of summer, three of our favorite local gyms have opened (or are about to open) in three new neighborhoods: Pure Barre in Greenpoint, Flex Studios in Noho, and Cyc in Hell's Kitchen. And as with any new kid on the block, they're looking to get you in the door—here's what they're offering in exchange:
The Union Square boutique gym just debuted its Noho location yesterday, and there's great news if you've never tried it before: With the New Client Special, you'll get a month's worth of unlimited classes (think TRX, barre, Pilates, and combo classes) for $250, compared to the usual price of $339.62. Get started here.
You'll have to wait until it opens next Monday, June 29th, but Cyc's new Hell's Kitchen Studio is currently offering a few flavors of pre-launch discounts, including five rides with two bonus sessions ($130), ten rides with four bonus sessions ($240), and 20 rides for eight bonus sessions ($430), as well as an unlimited monthly program for $268—sign up here.
The secret's out: Pure Barre is everywhere—and as of tomorrow, it'll be in Greenpoint, too. The nationwide chain is opening up a studio just north of its Williamsburg location, and to celebrate, they're offering a whole month's worth of unlimited barre classes for just $99 (a huge discount from the usual price of $295). But hurry, since you might only have until tomorrow to take advantage—purchase here.
