What do current New York Sports Club members have to say about their memberships?
Overall, the group fitness classes didn't get high marks from the New York Sports Club members that I surveyed. One member said that yoga classes in particular were very disappointing. Another member says there are often lines for the cardio equipment at her Upper East Side location, but that "machine cops" do try to keep the lines moving. Note: Several readers have shared their negative experiences with New York Sports Club billing representatives. Two readers reported that they were billed after cancelling their memberships. If you decide to join, be sure to read the fine print and get your cancellation confirmation in writing!
What are the membership fees at the New York Sports Club?
Like most New York City gyms, New York Sports Club does not advertise a standard initiation and monthly membership fee. They will usually provide details on current pricing only if you make an in-person appointment with a membership associate. That's partly because they want to get you into the gym to make it easier to close the deal and partly because New York Sports Club frequently offers special promotions and deals so prices can vary significantly.
