Tania and I have decided to sign up to a local brand spanking new gym called Blink Fitness. Blink Fitness is owned by equinox and is much more affordable ($15 or $20 a month as compared to Equinox’s $150+ monthly membership). The gym is located conveniently on Roosevelt Avenue and 78th Street. Their hours of operation are also very accommodating:

Monday – 5:00am to 11:00pm
Tuesday – 5:00am to 11:00pm
Wednesday – 5:00am to 11:00pm
Thursday – 5:00am to 11:00pm
Friday – 5:00am to 10:00pm
Saturday – 7:00am to 7:00pm
Sunday – 7:00am to 7:00pm

We went in today to pick up our key ring card and were informed that the gym opens on September 19th (A week and a half away). The staff seemed very friendly and most of all the gym was very modern.

Everything was new, organized and clean. The locker rooms were spotless, each treadmill was in operation, there were stair steppers, squat racks, concept 2 rowers and many other essential equipment as well. The gym also seemed very spacious. Though the space was not 100% ready, it did seem like it was more focused towards cardio training rather than weight lifting. There as only one squat rack, one smith machine, and one leg press. Meanwhile there were about 20+ treadmills, 20+ ellipticals and another 20+ cycling machines. There is a section dedicated to stretching, medicine ball training and usage of resistance bands. Of course the gym does lack some needed essentials (sauna, steam room, refreshments, towels etc), but for the price and great appearance I would rate it a solid 9/10.
