“This is a great place to work out, very fun facility too.”
“love shoes because unlike clothes the size never changes, you can eat pizza and they still fit, you can even borrow your skinny friend's shoes (can't do that with jeans!)”
“And it is a great place to meet great people -- the people in the classes are encouraging, enthusiastic and excited to be there.”
“The people in my classes, my fellow Warriors, are incredibly friendly and encouraging and I have felt accepted by them from Day 1.”
“It's huge and pretty awe-inspiring with bright colors, cool Marine Corps stuff and a pretty daunting obstacle course.”
“Girls will love me and I will slow dance with someone soon!”
Amazing workout! Best in NYC..
I have been going to Warrior Fitness Bootcamp consistently now for over 3 years and remain addicted, the workouts are intense and varied and there's a great team spirit in the classes. I have tried classes at all of the different times of the day and all of the trainers are awesome. It works for me as I can never train as hard when working out in a gym or training on my own, the guys push you to your own level and having also had personal training I think this is way better value.
I sometimes take a few weeks (even months) off because of work but I always go back and returning reminds of how good it is, the impact on my overall cardio, weight loss and general state of health is something I haven't found anywhere else. The feeling at the end of one hour at Warrior Fitness is phenomenal and not to mention addictive. I have taken numerous friends along who have been struggling with hitting the gym or trying to run regularly and they've all signed up.
Highly recommend to anyone regardless of your fitness level or just looking for something to mix up your training.
I signed up for the Intro package which was 3 classes @ $60 each. After your intro offer, the prices jump to an outrageous $60 per class. They are mean, uneducated thugs that run the class and if you google the company it is involved in a lawsuit/scandal.
Yes, i worked hard, but I dont even think i did the excercises correctly.
Save your money
The ONLY bootcamp to go to in the city!!.
This is the most complete, intense and BEST workout I have ever done. To provide some perspective, I am a former Division 1 collegiate athlete in my late 20's, so I am well familiar with intense workouts and regimens. I can honestly say that through several months of Warrior Fitness Bootcamp, I am in better shape than I have ever been in! Alex and Ruben provide a non-stop, intense 1 hour session of constant cardio, strengthening and agility workouts that truly push you to your limit. What's also great is that they can customize the workout to your needs. For example, I have a few ailments (ankle, knee) that prevent me from doing certain workouts. Instead, they have me do alternate exercises that work me just as hard, if not harder. What's also great is that the classes consist of people vary across the spectrum. You have people who are avid marathoners working out with people who have never visited a gym before. You have people who do weekly triathalons running with housewives who are just looking to get in shape. It's a great mix of folks!
This place provides a great combination of several things that truly make a service business stand out:
1.) EXCELLENT PRODUCT: the proof is in the workout itself - it's incredible.
2.) OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE: If you're injured, they'll work with you to figure out what best to do, be it changing up your work out, taking some time off to rest (in which case they will NOT penalize you any classes). Also, Alex and Ruben will work with you to figure out the best approach to meet your goals. I recently got married, and they worked with my wife and I to build a meal plan and regimen to maximize our results of getting in killer shape for our big day. Truly excellent customer service!
3.) OVERALL CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE: the facilities are top notch for the workout you do. Also, the camaraderie you build with your fellow Warriors is awesome as I've made several great friends through Warrior!
*BE WARY OF OTHER BOOTCAMPS IN THE CITY!! I am well familiar that a competing boot camp *cough*pure power*cough* actually offers free classes to its customers for posting positive reviews - how cheap and unreliable! Also, the owner of Pure Power was actually outside of Warrior Fitness yesterday trying to poach its customers by offering cheaper package prices for people who would switch over - how truly sad and a sign that their business is floundering (probably for good reason - read their reviews!)!
The only way to see how effective and incredible this workout is, is to try it yourself. I guarantee that you will get whipped into the best shape of your life, while having a great time doing so!
Best Workout in NYC.
I'm a bit of a fitness junkie--you name it, I've tried it. After years of marathons, triathlons, boxing, personal training, other boot camps and even bikram yoga, I can say from experience that NOTHING is as awesome as WFBC. Alex and Ruben push you to your limits every time you come to class and your fellow warriors cheer you on and encourage you to do your absolute best. Every class is different--so your body never gets used to the workout . Also, as a person who works a lot, I appreciate that each class is one hour long, and every second is utilized to the fullest extent.
Since starting WFBC back in February 2011, I've made incredible gains in strength and fitness and as an added bonus have been getting constant compliments on my shoulders and arms. Even my running coach noticed that I can power up hills with much more ease than ever before. WFBC has even solved my one recurring problem with keeping up my fitness levels. Because of work, in the past I have often missed a day or two of workouts, which turned into a week or two...and in then an inevitable decline in fitness. Not with WFBC! I love WFBC so much that since I started going to classes, no matter what else is going on in my life, I never go a week without it. With Ruben and Alex motivating me, I feel accountable for my fitness, and don't want to let them, myself, or my fellow warriors down by missing class. Of course, I'm also addicted and just can't get enough!
Hooked on WFBC.
WFBC delivers the most efficient and tough workout out there. I am a mom with a child under 2 and I can’t spend 2.5 hours at the gym, which is what I would need to get results. In one hour, you can get the workout that you need and the results will speak for themselves. I have always worked out and belonged to a gym, but Ruben and Alex took me to the next level. You could never sustain the level of intensity on your own – Alex and Ruben do not let you cheat yourself and guide you through the process. The workouts are always different and challenging, I have been a member for the past 10 months and I can say first hand that WFBC delivers on their promise and it is like nothing else out there. I could never do monkey bars as a child and I can do them now – As a matter of fact I never thought I could do most of the exercises including the obstacle course. You will jump over hurdles, walls, climb a rope and amaze yourself each day with how quickly you can do it each time. You REALLY have to come to more than 3 classes to experience what boot camp is all about – WFBC is NOT GLORIFIED CIRCUIT TRAINING. It is also more affordable than personal training and 1000 times more effective.
In addition to getting lean, you will get ridiculously strong while having fun. The classes are the right size and the other warriors are awesome and extremely supportive – you will meet GREAT people. Ruben and Alex motivate everyone to do their best. WFBC is a big part of my life, I love starting the morning with a HIGH dose of adrenaline - I am hooked. After class, I am always ready to TAKE ON the challenges of the day (and life) with a smile.
Fantastic Marketing - Glorified Circuit Training.
After reading all of the positive reviews Warrior Fitness has received and watching all the publicity on local and national television, I had to try this place out (I signed up for the three class introductory package for $60).
Simply put, I was highly disappointed... here are my three simple reasons as to why I felt this way:
1) glorified circuit training... although I think this is a great form of exercise and I understand it's helpful to receive motivation while training, the exercises performed are quite simple and well capable of being performed by oneself (i.e., running up stairs in an old NYC building, running around a track, pushups, sit-ups, along with an obstacle course)...
2) price... although an introductory package for three classes only costs $60, a three month membership skyrockets to around $1500... to me, that's a lot of money considering the style of exercises and the facilities that are used (i.e. a loft that is cooled by fans and the aforementioned rudimentary equipment)...
3) zero focus on exercise form/details... I know the class is setup in small groups (say, 10 per instructor) and that as a result, the instructor is capable of remembering your name... however, I was disappointed at how little attention there was to form in each individual performing his/her various exercises... to me this is important because if one is not using the right form, that person has the potential to injure him/herself, while that person also won't truly workout the intended muscles...
I think the founders have setup a fabulous business that must carry high margins, while the marketing techniques are ingenious - who doesn't want to become a "warrior" and supposedly train with Marines who understand Parris Island.
However, a true "warrior" is not only brave, but is also experienced in performing his/her homework on what he/she is signing-up and paying for.
Be a Warrior!.
When I first showed up at Warrior Fitness Boot Camp in November 2009, I didn't know what to expect. I was a 52 year-old male who had kept in reasonably good shape for most of his life (or at least I thought I had). But I had no idea how much harder I could challenge myself until I started with Alex and Ruben at Warrior Fitness Boot Camp. Those first few weeks were really tough, probably the toughest physical challenge I can remember putting myself through. But after 15 months of regular attendance at boot camp, I can say that my fitness level is probably as high as it has been in the past 20 years (and this from someone who has regularly exercised his whole life). Every day is still very tough, but the experience has been life-changing for me. The mutual support that we all get from our fellow Warriors (we encourage each other all the time), and the feeling of accomplishment after completing another difficult set or after a hard hour of training is unequaled. With me and at my age, it's all about finishing the exercise and never quitting, not about how fast or hard I can do it (although, I'm not going to lie, sometimes I do get caught up in that). If you are someone who wants to physically challenge yourself in a way that gets way beyond anything you've ever put yourself through and reap incredible psychological and physical rewards from it, become a Warrior!
You will shed those pounds!!!. No matter how hard you try not to work hard enough, this boot camp place will show you your limits. This is that place that will either make or break you. If you have weight you want to get rid of, head to the Warrior. If you're after a more healthy lifestyle, this is it!
Unique Workout. Ok, I’m a workout freak. I have done almost every class/workout in NYC. So I wasn’t scared going into this place. But the moment I walked in everything changed. I walked into a little hallway that was filled with all their media plaques. Then I walked into the main space which was huge and nothing like I’ve seen before. There was music pumping over the air waves, people running, counting and jumping over walls. I was thinking about walking out but then one of the instructors saw the look on my face, he came over and gave me a few words of encouragement and sent me off to the waiting areas. We warmed up then started to stretch. We started with jumping jacks and before I knew it I was like OMG, this is hard, and how will I finish this class. As the class progressed I wanted to stop but the instructors and people in the class kept motivating me. Before I realized it the class was over. The obstacle course was hard and I couldn’t do a few things but that’s ok. I’m going back to get over that damn wall. This place was just awesome!
Phenomenal workout. Warrior fitness bootcamp has really changed my life. I am using muscles I have never used before; it is an hour workout that equals 3 hours in the gym, everyone is courteous and friendly and truly you will get the best trainers, Justin, Alex and Ruben. This is the only workout that has kept me motivated.
