The Fitness Guru opened their new gym at 215 Water Street (between Bridge and Jay Streets) on June 6, 2013. The 8,000 square foot gym includes two levels with areas for weights and various workout equipment, men and women’s shower and locker rooms, pilates area, and a huge spinning studio called Bike Brooklyn. The lower level includes a 360 degree monkey bar, barre, weights, and other equipment. The main level includes the workout equipment, locker rooms, pilates, weights, and a terraced Brooklyn Bike studio. Michael Feigin, the founder of The Fitness Guru (TFG), told us that he is interested in creating an accessible community space for members and unlike other gyms, avoids the revolving door membership of regular box gyms. TFG has boot camp, spin, barre, and other classes, and will be adding more. For schedule and info, go to fitnessgurunyc.com.

The Fitness Guru announced the lease of an 8,000 square foot commercial space in Dumbo (215 Water Street, aka 50 Bridge Street) for the creation of a brand new, cutting edge health and fitness center. The studio, developed in partnership with Bike Brooklyn, will offer the burgeoning Dumbo neighborhood group fitness classes, Bike Brooklyn’s branded style of indoor cycling, personal training, and Pilates. It will also include physical therapy and will integrate the very best and latest in fitness technology. In addition to serving the fitness needs of the Dumbo/Vinegar Hill community, The Fitness Guru (formerly at 77 Front Street in Dumbo, and is now occupied by The Lab) will work with local Brooklyn vendors to provide members with nutritious dietary options. The fitness center is scheduled to open sometime early 2013.

Brownstoner first mentioned the lease. The transaction was represented by Chris Havens, Director of Commercial Property at Aptsandlofts.com. Chris said about the new studio partnership with Bike Brooklyn, “The Bike Brooklyn lease fitness facility will be an amenities game changer for Dumbo”.
