“I’m an ‘a la carte” type of fitness enthusiast, trying many different types of classes and studios. I regularly return to The Workout Factory NYC especially for Alex’s classes (though all are good) because I get results but also because the instructors attention to correct form is superior to so many other classes I’ve experienced. I can’t tell you how much bad form I notice out there with instructors who don’t bother to correct you.”

The Workout Factory is my happy place! Approaching my 2- year anniversary, I’ve been to A LOT of gyms in the city and I can easily say this is the best gym I’ve ever belonged to. I’m stronger and in better shape than I’ve even been. I ALWAYS leave drenched in sweat, feeling accomplished and much happier.
The coaches are exceptional at what they do. Their passion for delivering new and exciting workouts each session makes you want to come back! They care about the people in class, aren’t just going through the motions, and want to see you grow and improve. I’m challenged in every session. Love that i can spin AND do TRX, bootcamp and row classes.
Beyond kickass workouts, the community here is unlike any other gym and is what truly differentiates this place from any other gym for me. The staff is like a family and welcomes you with open arms into their community. They make it fun from summer parties, pop up healthy food tastings and friendly competitions to win cool prizes based on going to different classes. I’m not the kind of person who joins a gym to make friends but I couldn’t help it here. We all push and encourage each other and i look forward to seeing people and now spending time with them inside and outside of the the gym.
Can’t recommend enough!!!!

I only started focusing on fitness and exercising regularly around August 2018 with ClassPass. I tried dozens of studios and tried a variety of classes across Sunnyside / Astoria / Long Island City – and while most experiences were fairly positive; I didn’t find a studio I wanted to go to exclusively.
I finally got to Workout Factory late December 2018 and took my first class – Dean was awesome, super friendly and gave great instructions and made me feel welcome. I then discovered Workout Factory also had Spin classes and I was excited to see one studio had both. I noticed I was favoring Workout Factory much more than other studios, and I kept running out of credits so I signed up for an unlimited plan. I went from 3-4 classes a week, to daily classes, to double-class days (and sometimes, often, more).
Just last week I got a notice I’m up to 350 classes! I’m sure I’ve taken each trainer dozens of times and made a bunch of friends with other members. The only bad part – I’m missing out on so much TV.
I have been a member of workout factory since 2015. I first fell in love with the TRX based classes and then became an enthusiast of all the classes offered. The instructors are thoughtful about the exercises and class size to make sure each student gets the attention they need. I even stayed with WF through week 39 of my pregnancy.
