I’ve been a member since 2003. I attend the 125th Street location.
There are two reasons why I’m still there in spite of the rapid deterioration of the club. One, the instructors (TJ and Maki) and the sauna. Until recently, I sauna bathed at least 2x a week at the 125 location. Last week the sauna room was shut down by the department of health.
Not surprised. The lack of on premises management allows ignorant members to get away with wearing street clothes in the sauna room. Frankly, I thought that’s why it was closed down. NOT.
It was closed because management let the City required certification expire. We lost the use of the steam room several years ago without explanation and without a reduction in monthly dues.
Let’s get with it NYSC. Provide adequate management, follow up with the business required certifications and hire adequate staff to run the location.
