Chelsea Piers Fitness is noted for being one of Manhattan's most spacious and best-equipped gyms, set within the Chelsea Piers' massive recreation-and-entertainment center. Here's everything you need to know to determine if Chelsea Piers Fitness is the right gym for you:

Where Is the Chelsea Piers Fitness Located?

Chelsea Piers Fitness is located at Pier 60 in the Chelsea Piers complex, at 23rd Street and the Hudson River (in the Chelsea neighborhood). Unfortunately, with just one location in the somewhat remote Hudson River Park, Chelsea Piers Fitness can be inconvenient if you don't live or work in the area. However, many members are willing to make the trek from other neighborhoods for all of the cool perks. In April 2018, a new downtown Brooklyn location will be opening. Visit the website for details and to sign up for the newsletter for updates.

What Kind of Facilities Can I Expect at Chelsea Piers Fitness?

The gym is filled to the gills with 20,000 square feet of cardio, circuit, and strength training equipment. Members get access to a 25-yard pool, indoor running track, boxing ring, rock-climbing wall, indoor basketball and sand volleyball courts, aerobics and spinning studios, outdoor sun decks, a spa, and more. 

What Kind of Fitness Classes Are Scheduled at Chelsea Piers Fitness?

Members can opt to partake in more than 150 scheduled group exercise classes per week, including yoga, pilates, boxing, barre, swimming, and more.

What Are the Pros of Chelsea Piers Fitness?

  • Spacious workout facilities
  • Cool and unique workout options like rock climbing, indoor volleyball, and more
  • Proximity to other Chelsea Piers facilities like the Sky Rink indoor ice-skating rink, the golf club, and the batting cages

What Are the Cons of Chelsea Piers Fitness?

  • Just one location
  • Not easily accessible by subway
  • High monthly membership fees

What Are the Membership Fees at Chelsea Piers Fitness?

Naturally, all of these perks will cost you when it comes to your membership fee. Like most New York City gyms, Chelsea Piers Fitness 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 and partly because Chelsea Piers Fitness frequently offers special promotions and deals so prices can vary significantly.

How Can I Contact Chelsea Piers Fitness?

Check out their website, call (212-336-6000), or better yet, visit the location for a free, in-person tour.
