Harbor Fitness rocks.
I've been going for 10 years.
I use one of the trainers every five weeks to create a new routine. I do the routine for four weeks and then the trainer gives me another new routine and so on. You can get a half hour training session for $39 and it's cheaper than using a trainer every week if you have the dedication to follow the trainer's routine on your own.
The gym is clean and bright and the music is good on the sound system.
The staff are professional and courteous and remember you by name.
Do not be intimidated by the other regular gym goers. I exercised on and off over the years. I started to work out like a madwoman when I turned 45. It's possible to be fitter at 49 than you were at 22.
I credit the trainer at the gym with getting me into shape.
It's a great gym the best one I've ever been a member of. I'm glad I joined. The motto is right-on:
It's the best part of the day every day.
Brooklyns Gym – I've been a member of Harbor since I moved to Bay Ridge about 6 years ago. The staff and clientele are very friendly and welcoming. I've made many friends here.
The facility offers a wide range of strength and cardio equipment as well as group fitness and personal training services. I've utilized the personal training services in the past and found the trainers to be very professional and helpful in helping me reach my fitness goals.
I absolutely love the group fitness programs. I typically attend approx 6 classes per week. They offer a wide variety of classes from spin, boot camp, sculpting, and fight club to Pilates and yoga. The instructors all kick butt and you never walk out feeling as if you didn't work out to your max.
They offer babysitting services for those looking to sneak in a workout without having to hire or find a sitter.
There is also free towel service, women/men's locker rooms with daily lockers and shower facilities. There is someone constantly cleaning too which is nice because I tend to get grossed out easily. It's not an issue at all the Harbor clubs.
The membership fees are reasonable considering you get towel service and do not pay extra to attend group fitness.
What's not to like? – Right off the bat, the only thing that I don't like is that the rubber-matting by the squat rack is a bit wonky so if you are a big deadlifter,you'll be a bit miffed when the barbell rolls on the floor. Other than that, this place rocks. Awesome lockerrooms with a sauna, steam room, towels and showers. Great staff, great shakes and the place is always clean. Membership is a bit steep, but you get your money's worth. The "spa" features of this spot aren't necessary for an athlete, but I can't help but spoil myself by relaxing in the steam room or doing a half-hour deep tissue therapy on the yoga mats. Superb place. BEWARE:if you don't like Top 40 music, bring an i-pod.
Brooklyn's Best! – If you're looking for a friendly, congenial neighborhood health and fitness club, you cannot do better than to sign up with Harbor Fitness. With very reasonable membership rates, a caring staff, and superb workout equipment, this is simply the best value for the money you will find. I have been a member at the Bay Ridge facility for one year now and my experiences with the Club and its personnel have been nothing short of exemplary. As a local neighborhood business with strong roots in the community, Harbor Fitness prides itself on treating the customer with respect, dignity and consideration at all times. You're not just a "number" - you're treated as somebody whose patronage is valued and appreciated. That's what makes it stand out and stand apart from a national chain. It's small enough to provide individual attention to the customer and to address any concerns or questions that may arise while at the same time being of sufficient size to ensure a wide-ranging diversity of equipment apparatus to work out with. The best of both worlds. When you come here, you feel like you're part of a family. That's a good feeling. My landlady's son is a member and he recommended it to me last year when I told him I was looking to join a health club. He recommended it without reservation and told me that he really enjoys going there. That sounded like a ringing endorsement to me and I went to the Club, liked what I saw and the way I was treated, and signed up on the spot. And- you won't have to take out a second mortgage to afford a membership here as you might with some other places. The rates here are very affordable as befits a neighborhood business. You won't have to break the bank to come here. They're open morning, noon and night and you can go as often as you want. There are no restrictions on how many visits you're allowed during the month. No one is going to tell you that you've used up your monthly allotment. A personal issue arose recently in which I reached out to Lisa, who is one of the Managers at the Club, to elicit her advice and possible help. She was very gracious to me and displayed an understanding of my concern and a willingness to try and be of assistance. The question I had was resolved the very same day in a favorable manner. She told me that the Club wanted me to be happy as a member and was willing to resolve the issue in my favor. I was most grateful to Lisa and the Club for treating me with such respect and consideration. It really made a difference and has left me with a very warm feeling inside. It feels good to be cared about and appreciated and if that's an important consideration for you in deciding on a health and fitness club, you need to look no further than Harbor Fitness.
A Healthy Obsession...for HArbor =O) – EMPATHY FOR A MEMBER!!!
A gym with CLASS.
A style with a dash of fun, Jazzy ZeN enviroment.

I'm LOVING HARBOR on Bay Ridge.
I love You ALL VERY much Not more than MY HuBBy BOBBY!!!!!
FOR ALL NoN MEMBER switch and COME TO HARBOR FITNESS. I PROMISE you will get your Memberships WORTH!!!!
Great new look!! – I have been a member at Harbor for a few years and the service has always been outstanding. The classes are so much fun and I get such a terrific workout. And aside from all that they went ahead and fully renovated the entire club!! All I can say is WOW... Now the place is twice the size with a private spin studio and even more classes! I think everyone should experience the best gym in Brooklyn and Harbor is definetley the best and more. Even when I'm not there working out I find myself going there just to get their shakes and snacks. All around, Harbor Fitness is the best :-)
Greatest Gym In BKLYN – Harbor Fitness THE BEST gym I have ever belonged to. It's like a huge family. When you enter the gym you are greeted with the sweetest staff, who are always there to brighten up your day.
The classes are great! Spin has to be my favorite.
Lisa, the manger is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. She is always super friendly and nice. Most importantly, she is always willing to go that extra mile for every one of Harbors members. The customer Service here is by far the best! Lisa is one of the main reasons that I am still a member of Harbor Fitness.
I have been a member of a few different gyms throughout the years. But by far Harbor has to be #1.
In Response to Bad Front Service and Paid Parking – I must say I'm shocked to read a review like below. I was a member for a long time and know Lisa, and everyone else for at least 10 years. They are nothing but respectful, professional, and nice. When signing the contract does anyone read the fine print? I did not have problems cancelling my contract when I moved. I find that people that had problems in the past with cancellations usually didn't read the fine print. It's a shame how a great gym can get a bad rap because people just sign without looking.
Bad Front Service and Paid Parking – Sign in- service was excellent, everything went quick.
They have multiple classes, Yoga, Pilates and lots of muscle building and strength improving opportunities.
When I attended morning classes it was fine. After my schedule changed I only could go to evening classes- overcrowded, lack of equipment, not enough room on the floor. It started to bother me since I was unable to exercise.
Parking always difficult, or you can park in the Parking, but you have to pay for it. Since I'm paying for gym, parking should be free, not only discounted.
Then I canceled my membership- and here it begins. Unprofessional and rude service all over! Ive been dealing with them till now- even my membership is canceled, they keep charging me. they probably didn't cancel it properly and my info is still there, every month I keep being charged and have to call for a refund. Every time they say the same story- the ruled of canceling my membership- and dont listen to what I have to say. What a mess. I keep reaching the manager;'s office for a week and nobody ever called me back. Finally I got a refund and here it goes again another month.
The girl- Lisa- the manager of the Bay Rodge location- has negative attitude and got upset about my complaint. (why am I being charged and the I have to deal with those girls, and each one of them asks me whats my problem- cant they put it together?)
Well, good luck when you cancel.
Anyway - I think they are overpriced for the service they have and overcrowded classes they provide.
great gym! – best gym in the area (and probably in entire brooklyn!) I've been a member for 2+ yrs and still very satisfied. Their hours work with my schedule, although 24/7 applies to Mon-Thurs only. Still, more convenient than any other gym! the locker room has all you need after a workout and a shower- from towels, shampoo, etc. to qu-tips, hairspray, deodorant, etc. My only suggestion for them is to place the "butt machine" into a corner, to avoid stares (yes, some men are there mostly to socialize and stare, which i guess is unavoidable in any co-ed gym). Staff are friendly and the classes are great.
