Where/How Can I Get A One-Week Guest Pass to Reebok NYC?. I already have one pass but I need another so that my fiancee can try the gym out with me...anyone know where I can get one for August?
Agree with other negative reviews.
I joined the club after reading rave reviews. 75% of the initiation fee was waved through a promo so it was compelling for me to try. I am deeply disappointed with the gym. The classes are good and numerous, but they are not excellent. I agree with the reviewer who said that the showers are old and filthy. Accommodating and friendly staff? I have yet to see that. Snobbish yoga instructors who help only those they want to. The yoga is done extremely fast regardless of who can catch up. This is NOT the way to do yoga. I learned all types of yoga for one year in India, and the key is to do it slowly and give time to do each pose correctly for maximum impact. I was shocked to see how fast one yoga instructor was with poses - not good at all.
I got two sessions with a private instructor. They made it seem like they looked at my profile and matched me with the right instructor. I think the instructor they assigned to me did not have as many clients because he was new to NY, and so I was another potential client. The guy would not stop talking about how he trained beautiful people in Hollywood and so would train me to fitness. I barely did any workout with him.
When you spend $$$$ you expect convenience. Nothing is convenient about the gym. The big bucks are for the classes which you can find in any other gym. The lockers are tiny, and if you want to leave anything permanently, you have to pay $800 per year for a VERY tiny locker. Honestly I expected them to provide permanent lockers at least so that you don't have to carry a big bag around.
The $$$$ I spent are not worth it, but I am locked in due to the high initiation fee. I hope to get my money's worth by working out everyday. Unless you are living in the area, I highly suggest taking your money elsewhere.
The worst yoga program in Manhattan. I joined this place exclusively for its yoga program and the new mind-body studio. Unfortunately, after being a member for one year, I decided to cancel my membership due to the poorly managed yoga program. It is clear that only certain instructors are being favored and they only listen to certain type of members. The classes have no spiritual element and most classes are taught by instructors who only care about how beautiful they look doing the poses and don't even bother correcting the people in class. When I spoke to the yoga program coordinator, all she had to say was that I probably was in the wrong place, that Reebok is a health club and not a yoga studio. She is probably right - don't join if what you are looking for are high-quality yoga classes!
Don't let the smiles fool you - the club is old and filthy!. I have been a guest at this club multiple times and after my recent last visit I found out it is nothing like what it used to be several years ago! Yes, they still greet you with a smile every time, but that doesn't make up for the fact that the facility is falling apart - you can tell by the poor condition of the equipment used in the classes (I took a step class and almost fell because the steps are worn out and don't stay put on the floor anymore!) The bathrooms look and smell like those in a bad-neighborhood public high school - splashed with water all over the sink, un-flushed, stinky toilets and no toilet paper. At well over $200/month and the outrageous $1000+ initiation fee, you expect the "five-star" service they claim to provide, yet, what you get is well below what you expect. It's a shame that what used be the best club in NYC has now turned into an old, filthy club that is poorly maintained and falling apart, but the price remains just as expensive. If you are thinking about joining, I suggest you shop around other clubs first - there are newer, cleaner clubs in the surrounding areas that don't charge as much and provide a real first-quality service and facility.
best customer service.
I just want everyone who likes 5 star service to know that it still exists on the Upper West Side. I just moved from Florida and have recently joined the Reebok Sports Club in NY. It is AMAZING! From the greeting smiles to the personal attention, I find that each visit is like a little hotel stay!
The club is so abuzz with life, and there's never a wait for machines and equipment. I love that!! Also, I think there's like 100 exercise classes to choose from!
The best part of the club to me is that by the end of my first week there, staff members were calling me by my first name. I think that speaks volumes for this place...
Remarkable Reebok. I joined Reebok since i have some friends there, and heard all about the new Mind Body and Yoga Center. The club is beautiful and the machines and trainers are great, but the Center is amazing. The classes are challenging and the staff there are just so warm, friendly and accomodating. There are not enough great things i can say, its not just a gym it really is like a 5 star hotel
5 Star Hospitality. I just completed a week trial membership extended to me by Lori Crosby at Reebok and was blown away. Very spacious and the facility exceeded my expectations, i never had to wait for a machine and it was cleaner than any other place I've been to. The hospitality the staff extended to me was very impressive, because of this alone i highly recommend Reebok Sports Club/NY...it's the reason i will be joining.
Beautiful facility!. I recently got to work out at this club after not being here for a few years. There have been several changes since I was last here such as the Mind Body Studios and new machines/carpeting, etc. The Mind Body Studios are definitely a great addition to this beautiful gym where you feel like you're vacationing rather than working out. If you don't like to sweat, this is the place for you as you can people watch for hours or sit at the cafe. And if you do like to sweat, then there are tons of options. Great classes (of every kind) and all machines one might expect. Fabulous group exercise instructors and private trainers (if you'd rather be on your own). I took yoga and a spin class. Awesome! I can't wait to go back!
Beautiful facility with excellent trainers. I've been a member at several top gyms in Manhattan. Reebok Sports is by far my favorite. Working out with their trainers put me in the best shape of my life and the facility is a always a pleasure to go to at the end of a long day. I'm pretty picky and this is one of the only public spaces I would ever shower in. The pool is also a major boon and I've used it frequently. I highly recommend.
One of the very best health clubs in NY.
The Reebok Sports Club NY is still one of the best health clubs in the city. I joined recently, and despite some of the negative reviews (which, if you pay close attention, appear to have been written by the same person), I found the place met and even exceeded my expectations.
This is the most pleasant place in which I have worked out in quite a while. There are wide open spaces, large windows with views of the city and the staff keeps everything clean and tidy. The equipment is new and in excellent condition, group activities are numerous and varied, and the management has clearly set high standards in selecting only the best personal trainers.
The locker rooms are spacious and clean and, more important, there is enough equipment to insure no wait even during peak hours and on the weekend.
