NYSC – Uptown

12/28/2006 Update:

Quick update. They opened early! They’re now calling the members who signed up to advise them to come on down. Unheard of to open before they originally said!

11/17/2006 Overview:
Great news for uptown residents!

The New York Sports Club will be opening just in time to tackle the usual New Years Resolutions. On December 31st, the 14th Street NYSC will finally open. They’re currently accepting pre-opening member sign-ups. Get in there early to get the best VIP rates. The longer you wait, the more you will pay. Call now to inquire about rates. 201-222-5771. You can also sign up online HERE.

nysclogo - NYSC - UptownThe general manager, Jean Anderson, was kind enough to give me a full tour of Hoboken’s most state-of-the-art fitness facility. At approximately 25,000 square feet it’s very open and spacious location with lots of windows. A huge improvement over the cramped basement location downtown. Plasma TV’s with DirecTV, and satellite radio for uninterrupted music to keep things interesting.

Here’s an 14 photo overview:

Free weights- Rubberized so they don’t make that annoying clanking sound.

The Freedom Trainer- Does practically every exercise on earth.

Some recumbant bikes- Apparently with a better posture than other bikes.

Fancy new treadmills- Don’t worry, the balloons will be removed by the time they open.

The usual spinning class- 45 minutes / 600 calories. The pizza will not be surrounded by as much guilt if you take this class regularly.

A nice big group exercise room- Box, step, cardio and more.

Locker rooms- A labyrinth of compact areas. Lockers are wider to accept most gym bags.

A sauna- to sweat the weekends hangovers completely out.

A great “mind & body” room- ambient lighting and a more relaxed “zen” feel to perform pilates on the new reformer machines.

And of course, a kids room with full time qualified caregivers to take care of your children while you workout. The room wasn’t complete yet, but here’s a box of balls which all kids seem to go bonkers for.

As an uptown resident, I’m psyched this place is here. We needed a top-notch gym in this location of town, as an alternative to the YMCA and Supreme Fitness. I’m glad I joined, now I can lose the 20 lbs I gained since starting Hoboken411. Other than the gym, my New Years Resolution should be: “no more bacon”. But that’ll last about 30 days.

FYI, anyone interested in joining a gym, I just found out my company does a corporate rate with NYSC ($21/mo off the listed passport membership prices, varying rates off other types of memberships). No sign-up fee, etc etc. Reduced rate p.t. sessions.

Apparently NYSC does this with many companies, so you might want to look into it.

Unfortunately the nysc.com website has their schedule incorrect. They are open 7 to 7 on weekends, just like Hoboken South. 😥

On that note, I was disappointed to see zero muscle men at NYSC North. When I work out, I like to watch the huge guys that leg press almost 1000 pounds and bench in the 300 range. Heh. If I was being PC I’d say it’s for the inspiration, but it really just gets me smiling like a teenager. 😉 Where do those guys lift? There a a couple at NYSC Hoboken South, but surprisingly less than I thought there would be in Hoboken. I could do with some eye candy…

There are open on weekends from 9-9! Awesome! This is great for me since I’m a night owl. NYSC Hoboken South, Club H and others are open 7-7 on weekends which doesn’t fit my schedule as well.

I’ve actually been tempted to join Supreme because you can get in 24 hours a day, but their lack of a gym in NYC and me not wanted to pay for more than 1 gym membership stops me from doing that.

NYSC: half of you ppl are right they are a scam.i know this for a fact i know someone that works there and he tells me everything that goes on at the gym…they call every person that walks in there to sign up suckers and all they care about is taking your credit card they tell you that to day is the last day for the sale that they only have 5 spots left.THATS EVERY DAY THEY HAVE SPOTS LEFT…so how many spots do they really have?Jean Anderson(general Manager) does not know how to run her gym…she has her consultants running the streets begging ppl to sign up.(really desperate)Leonard Gonzalez (customer care manager)didnt even know when the gym was opening, i talked to him personally and they kept putting me on hold for 1 question to the next. customer care??WHERE??

Did anyone take a look at the schedule, who is able to take a 9:30am spinning class? There should be M,W,F, 6amish class not this stupid 930am crap..
I think they forgot there are actually people without kids on this side of town.. Sometimes I wonder what I was on when I bought a place in this town.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
