“Small, clean, friendly, pay-as-you-go fitness location”
“MonQi is an amazing neighborhood gym that reminds me of the bar on Cheers where everybody knows your name.”
“Her seemingly limitless knowledge of posture variations keeps her class routines fresh and just challenging enough.”
“The variety of classes is also unique to a smaller gym; however the fact that it is smaller just means there is more time for the instructor to make sure you are catching on to the routine or doing your squats properly.”
“great place to exercise!”
“The atmosphere and staff are extremeley charming and helpful.”
“I've been going to the big mega-gyms and found that I rarely went even though I paid so much money to join.”
“Norma is a wonderful instructor, always quick with additional suggestions of ways to make a particular pose work better for you.”
Best of the Best.
This gym is the bomb, it's super clean and energetic. I've met the owner of the gym and he's one of the most friendly man i have ever met in my life. He's very intelligent, and helpful. The staff is very friendly and welcoming that makes me want to stay in there as much as i can. Every one that goes to the gym seems very happy and pleasant and i would clearly understand why. This is definitely one of my favorite place in the city. Thank you guys for being awesome and generous!
GYM IS AWESOME!!. This gym is one of the best gyms around in the area. People are nice, as well as the staff. It's always clean and always exceeding other people's expectations. I've read the negative reviews but it clearly seems those people are out of their minds. Everyone is so nice and helpful and I truly can't think of a better place to maintain your fitness lifestyle. I truly recommend this gym to anyone who lives in the area. I've yet seen something negative about this place. Thanks guys for being so helpful and giving a lot to the community!
This is a great, clean and tranquil space to work out. I just signed up 2 months ago (I was a long time, and now ex-member of NYSC) and really appreciate that there's no wait or huge lines for any of the equipment I need even on busy week nights. I prefer using free weights and the treadmills but they have everything you'll need.
Also, the front desk and training staff are super helpful and friendly which makes training here pretty chill and awesome. As for the super negative review from thecactus - it seems like a super bitter ex-employee with a huge ax to grind, retaliated via the internet....a pretty sleazy and gutless move.
M gym has been nothing but an exceptionally professional experience.
come here to seriously work out, not just hang out....
I've been a member of M Gym for over five years...when it was first Monqi Fitness. I'm thrill to see the updated equipment and massive face-lift the place got in the past few years. They keep the gym spotless and cozy. It's a smaller gym vs a gigantic Equinox or LA Sports Club but then again, it's a lot more personal than those other places. The trainers and staff know you by your name. It's not a place for you to show up and look pretty. You go, you sweat and work out, and you leave. End of story. There's no let-me-try-to-upsell-you with expensive smoothies or salads. There's no spa or fancy bodywash and lotion in the showers. It's a place you go be serious and work out. That's what gyms are for.
I've read a couple of the negative reviews that all seemed to appear within a few days of one another. And I felt I needed to step up and defend this place as a long-standing member. I've been training at this gym for over 5 years and often twice a week and I have never once heard anyone on the staff act or speak disrespectfully to each other or to a member. What I do see are the owners run around managing the staff closely to keep the towels stocked, the equipment and floors clean, and be thoughtful to their members. That's a GOOD sign. That's a well-runned gym and a well-staffed gym.
A great gym... Super clean & cozy.
I absolutely love M Gym... The gym has everything one would need for a great workout or training session. Definitely one of the very best boutique gyms in the city and I have been to a lot of them.
The staff is friendly and attractive. They are constantly adding new classes and bringing in new equipment... It is a very well run club... The larger chained gyms could learn a lot from this place. I'm an upper eastsider and a former member of equinox and the sports club la... horriblle, inexperienced trainers at both locations... I found a trainer at M Gym that is just incredible. I'm hooked for life.
great gym and staff. My wife and i are members and love the place. I don't understand the reviews below, a former employee with a grudge perhaps......As far as I am concerned, it is not very complicated. Anyone with a head on their shoulders would figure out that taking group classes has nothing to do with personal trainers or the owner. The customer is always right, but there is no customer involved here. I come, do what i have to and go about my day. It is clean, up to date and people are friendly.
The Customer is Always Right!. I'm surprised to see so many bad reviews, especially based on how much these guys seem to build themselves up. But, I'm gonna have to agree with the negative reviews, unfortunately. I don't know anything about the employees, or how they work or get along with each other, frankly not my business, but what bothers me is how they treat us, the customers. I came here a few times before to take some classes. Personally, I think their attitudes leave much to be desired. The trainer was rude, the front desk person was rude. I felt like I was "bothering" them when I asked questions, and their responses reeked of sarcasm. I think people should not own a client-based business if they do not like working with customers, or if they lack patience to deal with people. Just a thought. On the other hand, a pro is that the equipment was nice and clean. But, who wants to go to a place where your service as a customer feels unappreciated? Not me. Honest opinion, 24 hour fitness on Lex has both nice clean equipment AND great staff! That's where I spend my money now! :-)
Wonderful Gym. I don't know why some people say people here is rude... I have been working out here for about a year and a half, and I have NEVER heard/seen anyone yelling or bullying - in fact, people here is really great.The staff & trainers are nice, bright, and helpful. I like their brand-new equipment and its clean environment. It's a great place to work out!
Great Place to Work!!!.
In response to thecactus012, this clearly is the case of a disgruntled employee who rather than accept the fact she was terminated due to her incompetencies has launched a personal attack on the head trainer of M Gym when finally asked to leave. During her short-term employment, she did not comply with the company’s directives and became very defiant when corrected. She is so vindictive that she has even gone to the extent of having her friends write FALSE reviews to shame the business. The gym and its staff have been falsely represented. HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY. People should not use the Internet as a destructive tool when the problem is themselves!!!
SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! As a female employee who has worked at the gym before she started and still continues to work until this day, I can say that her claims are highly fabricated and do not represent mine nor any other female at the gym. This personal attack is simply a way to cover up her own inefficiencies and personal issues that made it difficult for her to carry out her duties effectively.
M Gym is a great place to work!!! The head trainer is amazing and very helpful as well as other staff and Management. Come and see for yourself!!! :-)
It is a great gym to workout!!!
very happy here.... It makes me sad when I read reviews that are so far from the truth. I have been a member here for while, when it was Monqi. The equipment is awesome and it is so clean and things just seem to be very organized. I think the gentleman that took over the place has been nothing but warm and welcoming. He always says good morning to my husband and I. I have discussed with him my back injury and he gave me some great tips on how to safely use the machines. He actually had one of his trainers stretch me and it was amazing..if only i can afford a trainer. Prices for which are very reasonable for this neighborhood and after the tax season I just might. My husband and I are small business owners ourselves and I know how hard it is to wear so many hats and impossible to make everyone happy. Few words to the MGym.....you guys are a nice place and ignore the negativity!
