  1. What's new in this club
  2. Quick update: NYSC filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy today. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/09/14/covid-19-new-york-sports-club-owner-town-sports-files-for-bankruptcy.html If you're anticipating certain locations reopening in the near future, I'd rethink that. Also, if they owe you money, call your credit card company. I believe a chargeback is your only recourse after filing for bankruptcy (but feel free to check my math on that).
  3. Yes: Your NYSC contract (haha) tells you to send a certified letter to the location where you initially signed up. The NY Attorney General requires them to take electronic and phone cancellations: They recommend emailing [email protected] and/or using the Contact Us page on their website. They recommend contacting them electronically even if you sent a letter. I contacted them on all fronts and got an email confirmation of my cancellation yesterday. I also walked by my closed location and noticed the lobby floor was covered in letters assumedly from people cancelling their me
  4. I used to go there, but once they started charging without reopening, i’m definitely going to another gym now. Do you know how to cancel without physically being there?
  5. I'm usually just a lurker, but wanted to encourage anyone with a New York Sports Club membership to check their billing and also check the reopening hours here: https://www.newyorksportsclubs.com/page/nysc-reopening-hours NYSC is scheduled to reopen Sept. 2, but only a handful of gyms in NYC. That hasn't stopped them from charging your account today or, in my case, also trying to charge for March when they were closed. If you considered freezing or canceling your membership, I'd recommend doing it immediately, as they're already charging accounts without any notificatio
  6. Hey I can't do this at home stuff any more--the kettlebell isn't cutting it--I need access to some real weight. Does anyone know of anything going on? Anyone have a home gym I can come use or know of someone doing something on the side? Happy to play it safe and wear a mask and all that, but we all know that it's outrageous that people can go to Target and Old Navy and get drunk on sidewalks but we can't work out.
  7. Hey guys. Big muscle fan here. Looking to befriend any big dudes who like flexing and showing off. Located in Brooklyn. Let me know if interested and I can share pics and contact info.

    Meal prep with pickup (not delivery)

    I think there are several thousand of these in Midtown...
  9. Hi all, Anyone know of a good meal prep service where you can pick up the meals somewhere in midtown instead of having them delivered? Most of the sites are only delivery and packages routinely can't get into my building and go back to the sender. Thank you!

    Midtown East Gyms

    You might also find a good independent that'll take you to MidCity, if crosstown at 42 is easier for you than that southwest diagonal.

    Midtown East Gyms

    Trainers that work for gyms... it's usually a really shit job, so many don't last at the same place for long. I worked briefly for an upscale gym that had a great reputation (until recently), and it was a little slice of hell. Lots of restrictions, and the trainer cut of the session price is often really terrible. Most trainers who are actually any good will work for a gym to get the hang of it, or maybe bounce between two or three, then strike out on their own. Some make it work as gym staff, but they tend to be the exception, not the rule. The gym situation in Manhattan sucks. If anythi
  12. Hi Guys, Anyone know of any good gyms to get huge at in midtown east with a good training staff? My place is OK but I've had 4 trainers in 1 year as the place has a hard time trying to hold on to people and if they change trainers on me again I want to look into other options. (also I think part of the problem is I go to the gym from 6 - 7 AM and some of the trainers hate getting to the gym at 5:45). I was looking on Google and found a few places but looking for something closer to the Kips Bay / Murray Hill area if anything exists. Thanks all!

    Brooklyn guy working on going from skinny to big. It would be cool to connect with fellow new yorkers (mid twenties) doing the same!

    Contest prepping for my 1st show in October. I live in Connecticut but work in NYC. My bodybuilding coach just moved to Texas so I'm looking for a lifting buddy if anyone's interested.

    All You Can Eat?

    Lots of Indian lunch buffets. Clove at Amsterdam/140 is rather good. Some on the UWS as well.

    All You Can Eat?

    I don't but please share if you do!
  20. Random question, but does anyone know of any decently healthy, affordable all-you-can-eat places in the city? It's bulking season!

    Yo, a Brooklyn guy over here. Glad to be representing New York with you dudes! Over the last year I’ve been going to a super convenient YMCA a few blocks from me, and I just recently got back down to fight’n weight so to speak. That was phase 1 for me, and now I’m facing phase 2, where I wanted to get focused on lifting. So far, I’ve just been using weight machines and my personal set of adjustable dumbbells at home. I have made some headway from that, but I know I won’t make real progress until I spend some serious time in my gym’s weight room. Since I’m a total newbie at weig

    Best Gay Gyms in NYC?

    I've seen two guys in the shower together at 125th, and one time a guy tried to give me a BJ (or at least, I think that's what his intention was when he poked his head out of a shower curtain at waist level with an inviting smile). People routinely enter the sauna in pairs. There are plenty of straight guys as well, but there's a LOT of shenanigans there.
