Chelsea Piers Fitness Swims (Runs, and Spins!) Laps Around Other Gyms

With all the new development coming to Downtown Brooklyn, the folks behind Chelsea Piers Fitness saw a demand for a state-of-the-art, luxury gym that could feel like a home away from home. We talked to Member Services Director Allison Schaffer about the extensive offerings at this 52,000 square foot fitness mecca — including, but not limited to, its own Fresh & Co. restaurant, a co-working space, and self-securing lockers.

How is Chelsea Piers Fitness different from other gyms?

We have the only 75-foot lap pool in Brooklyn that is adults-only. (And we offer childcare!) We also host events to help members get to know each other: Monthly trivia nights, healthy eating seminars, networking meet-ups.

Your most popular classes?

While the schedule changes every few weeks, members love Breakaway (a spin class), Amped (High Intensity Interval Training on turf),  and both Hot Yoga and Hot Pilates. Because our trainers can work elsewhere, people follow them here, and become members.

…all you need is a spa!

Spa services open in mid-March! Expect massages, recovery boots, and sauna and steam rooms in the locker rooms. Towels and robes included.
