    Well I've organised Rehoboth, next is a gym for New York.

    I'm staying in the Battery Park area (some apartment block near the World Financial Centre/Center).

    I've noticed a lot of NY Sports clubs but there is very little on casual pricing on their website (as usual).

    Does anyone have any comparisons between the NY Sports clubs and say the Golds Gym on 90 Johns St?

    I won't be there for a full week so the $70 week pass is not an option for Golds which is why I don't mind which gym I go to provided the quality is reasonable and the cost is also reasonable (say $15 a casual visit?).

    Requirements
    * good free weights section (nothing brand new and fancy, just usable)
    * cable machines are also good with a core workout area
    * pool optional.
    * Cost about $15 per casual visit, will probably only get through 3 or 4 workouts

    The last time is purchased a day pass from NYSC it was $25. It was on 8th ave and 23rd st. Good luck.

    Its farther away but you might get a better day rate from the YMCA on West 14th btwn 6/7ave. The Y has a pool.
    There is an equinox around Chambers street but my guess is it will be more expensive than the NYSC.

    I was able to call the gym on 90 Johns Street - couldn't quite hear what they called themselves there when they answered, but they quoted $16 for a casual visit which was pretty good. So whether it's Crunch or Gold's I'll check that one out first icon_smile.gif

    Thanks guys.
