Local cyclist asks for support in 2016 AIDS/LifeCycle

ALC2016-Generic-Orange

I’m preparing for a monumental journey and I couldn’t be more excited! It’s not going to be easy, but it’s likely to be one of the most rewarding weeks I will experience in my life. And I need your help to make it possible.
June 5th - June 11th I will ride my bike 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles to support the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center, in the fight to end HIV/AIDS.
Preparing for this journey will require countless hours of training and preparation. I’ve committed my time to make sure that I’m ready, but I still need to raise a minimum of $3,000 to ride. For that, I’m asking you to support me by donating as generously as you possibly can. To the people who rely on these services to survive, every dollar counts. And every dollar brings me closer to being able to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Thank you for making this event possible for me and for being the support that I need to cross the finish line on June 12th. Let’s make a difference together!

With love and gratitude,
Thomas Moraitis

New York Fitness Indoor Triathlon


The Return of the NYF Indoor Tri!
Are you interested in doing a triathlon? But you are not sure if you can make those long distances. New York Fitness will be putting on an indoor triathlon that will use a different format. 

Instead of having a set distance to travel e.g. 3.1 miles for a run. You will go as far as you can in a set time limit for each leg of the race. What this means; You will start the race doing a 10 minute swim, followed by a 30 minute bike ride (on our S-2 Bikes), ending the race with a 20 minute run (around the gym complex or on our designated treadmills, depending on weather). With brief transition periods in between each race leg. You will then be scored by the distance you travel in these times.

The event will be held on Saturday December 5th, and will be a time slotted event, with the first time slot beginning at 11:00 am and following time slots beginning every 35 minutes. Sign up early to get your ideal time slot.

The cost will be $30 to participate for non-members, or $25 for members, race day signups $30. Proceeds will go to funding Swim Scholarships for graduating seniors. Sign ups will be at New York Fitness. Sign up by November 20th to guarantee yourself a t-shirt!

Prizes will be given to top finishers in each age group. Must be 14 and above to participate.

If you have questions, please email Addison atrpta136@gmail.com.

Did you know?
In the United States and Canada, November is National Beard Month or No Shave Month. Australians have a similar month were they grow a mustache instead of a full beard.
November 2015

Dear Members and Friends of NYF, 
We are getting close to the holiday season! I personally love to eat holiday food and I am sure many of you do as well. My suggestion is to be proactive with those extra calories and find time to make it into the gym for your workout. Not only will it keep you looking good all winter season, it can also help relieve a lot of stress (not that anybody is ever stressed during the holidays). 

Just a reminder we will be closed on Thanksgiving day, but normal hours on Friday.
                                               Joshua Smart, Fitness Manager

P.S. If you are looking for the perfect holiday gift, the front desk has gift certificates for sale.
New Class!
Introducing Chair Pilates!
This new class will follow the basic principles of Pilates, using modifications to make the program accessible to people with balance, stability, or joint issues, as well as other challenges which prevent them from participating in the mat based Pilates classes. Pilates strengthens the core, helps build muscles, provides stretching benefits and enhances one's overall health.

This class will include sitting and standing exercises and will make use of stretch bands, light weights, and small balls. First class to start November 4th.

Wednesdays- 11:00 am to 12:00 pm

Changes to Fit Kids!

Fit Kids is getting more affordable!
Introducing the "Fit Kids Unlimited Card" Starting October 1st we will be changing how we charge for Fit Kids. Similar to how we charge for tanning or membership the Fit Kids Unlimited Card will be a flat rate for a one month ($30). This means you no longer have to count your minutes when you drop off your children, allowing you to come to the gym more often. 

For those of you with multiple children, each additional child will be charged the discounted rate of $10 per child.

If you still don't think you will be able to use the new cards enough, you will still be able to pay by the hour at $5 per child.

All old Fit Kids limitations still apply, including; time limits, and number of children allowed at one time. So, please make a reservation to ensure your child's spot.
