Finding a Gym

If you are anything like me, one of the first things I wanted to organise when I arrived is gym membership.  I love keeping fit and exercising, but also thought it would be a great way to meet people and start getting in touch with the local community.

There is no shortage of gyms to choose from in the city.  They are mostly chains, some national and some local, and each gym will have a different atmosphere and clientele depending on where they are located within the city. 

I had a look at quite a few gyms before settling on 'Club H Fitness'.  They have four locations across New York City and they offer group classes, spinning, personal training, a spa and cafe.  I originally joined their 34th Street location which I loved, but since we moved I now go to the 55th Street gym.  It is still a great gym but not quite as nice as the 34th Street location.  Everyone is very friendly though and offer a good range of classes, although I do miss the Zumba class that was on offer in the day 34th Street.  Compared to some of the other gyms it is reasonably priced and they have lots of January deals on at the moment.

Now is a great time to join a gym as they are offering some really good January deals on memberships.  Here are links to some of the gyms in the area:

As you see there are lots to choose from, and this is only a selection of what is on offer.  Have a look around your local neighbourhood to find the best gym for you and let me know how you get on!
