The Gym Project

This week I visited the 14th Street Y
344 East 14th Street, New York, NY, 10003 (on First Avenue)
212 780 0800

This small and cosy gym is more of a gym within a local community center, and has nothing to do with luxury. Very few machines for you to exercise and offers on average six exercise classes a day. I did the Lunch Crunch Pilates which was a challenging, intermediate level pilates class.

Score card
Facilities: 5/10. Very basic. Two small exercise studios, small gymnasium with very few machines and average cleanness changing room. Towels are not provided. So get you own towel and lock.

Variety of classes: 7/10. Six to seven classes per day. There is the Body by Baby Pilates and Mommy Baby Yoga for young mommies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Power Sclupt, Pilates, Power Burn, Belly Dance, Cardio Sculpt and Tai Chi amongst them.

Rate of difficulty: 7/10 (for the Lunch Crunch Pilates)
