Gyms?

Hi there,

I'm going to be in NYC for a week in late April and just wanted to know if anyone knew of any gyms where you can just pay as you go per visit without a membership? I would prefer on the upper west side but anywhere in Manhattan would be fine.

Thanks.

Most gyms offer a 2 week trial pass some are free some at very inexpensive. Since you are here for a week this might be more appropriate than a pay as you go contract.

You have your choice of

Bally Fitness

Equinox Fitness Club - http://www.equinoxfitness.com/

New York City Sports Club

http://www.mysportsclubs.com/regions/NYSC.htm

All of these have location finders - just place the zipcode of your accommodation and it will show the closet one.

Check too with your hotel. It may have an arrangement with a nearby gym whereby its guests get a discount not available to other "walk in's".

The Reebok Club is on the UWS and there's also a YMCA on the UWS that might be the easiest for an out of towner to use. Many of the free or low cost trial offers may stipulate that you have to live here (so you could join as a regular member).

If you have a Master Card, this might help

For most trial offers and guest passes you need a NYS ID. Your best bet is to check with your hotel and see if they have a partnership.

Usually, the trial offers for which you pay a small fee (like $22 for a 7 day pass which use to be Bally Fitness offer) will accept any ID for the most part.
