Iron & Silk Personal Fitness
155 E 3rd St, New York, NY 10009
When my fiance proposed I realized our very happy year together had resulted in an extra 10-15 lbs on top of the 10 lbs I was already overweight. I wanted to join a gym with personal attention, that is small and where I wouldn't feel embarrassed to be overweight/out of shape. Iron and silk was the perfect choice. The husband-wife owners and all the staff (elite personal trainers) know every client's name and goals at the gym. The training sessions are amazing (and really hard) and when I come into the gym on my own the trainers still come over and tell me what to do to maximize my workout. The gym is very small but there is never a wait for machines. The other people who work out there are serious about fitness but also friendly. The classes are very small (max 6 people, but sometimes it's just me) so it feels like a personal training session as well. The price is not cheap, but it's about the same as David Barton, with the personal attention that no other gym can offer.
