Years ago, I found a new community at New York Underground Fitness and still continue to be inspired to stay healthy and fit just by knowing Eric and watching his personal habits.
Eric is not only a top notch personal trainer, he is also extremely knowledgeable about nutrition.
Eric helps his clients feel at ease as he guides them down the path to a healthier and fitter lifestyle.
Eric has helped me to achieve goals and to stay fit even during a pandemic. Since Covid we have continued to flourish with virtual training via Zoom.
Thank you Eric for continuing to inspire and help me reach my goals!

Eric is very passionate and knowledgeable at what he does. Since the covid shutdown, workouts have transitioned from in person to virtual and although I miss NY Underground Fitness’s vibe so much, Eric has made sure to bring all the same encouragement through the screen. Thank you for the positive vibes!

Prior to working with Eric, I was never satisfied with personal trainers. Having major injuries with both of my knees and suffering from osteoarthritis, trainers were usually instructing me in general strength and flexibility methods. It usually ended up in pain with additional injuries. Eric actually listened to me and monitored how I reacted to different workout methods. He worked up a plan specifically for me and it did wonders. I'm 59, fit and feeling no pain! Thanks Eric!!! More...

Eric is not only an extremely knowledgeable trainer, but he truly cares about the best interests of his clients. He finds ways to push you while catering to your specific needs and abilities. On top of that, he is very personable and welcoming. His gym has everything you could need to train paired with a friendly environment. Hands down my best experience with any gym or trainers I have seen and I would recommend to anyone seeking to improve their physical and mental well-being. More...

Eric is very professional and extremely personable. He is incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of fitness - diet, weight training regiments, the mental side of exercise and conditioning, etc. - and he motivates everyone around him to improve his/her overall health in a highly positive environment. He’s also very flexible and adaptable - we transitioned to virtual when I moved out of New York City and didn’t skip a beat. More...

Eric is by far the best personal trainer you could work with. He’s attentive to your wants and needs and doesn’t force you into doing anything that you’re not comfortable doing. I think sometimes trainers can get so focused on the latest fad and forget that every client has a different mindset or outlook on what they want to achieve. Eric knows how to meet this and will help you get to where you want to be without imposing a difficult way to achieve your goals. He also understands how to address workout plans for various body types and nutrition. If you want your health to be in good hands, Eric is your man. Not only is he knowledgeable about how to get you in the best shape, but he’s also very thoughtful and caring. I couldn’t have asked for a better trainer and friend. More...

I never enjoyed working out. The most I used to do was go on the treadmill at Planet Fitness and maybe grab one of their free pizzas afterwards. This is all before finding Eric as my personal trainer at Underground Fitness. I started to love breaking a sweat and challenging myself to meet new fitness goals. Especially during stressful days, working out with Eric actually lifted my energy level and decreased my stress level! I can't thank him enough for being an amazing trainer who changed my lifestyle into a healthy one as well as a friend who I can rely on to push me and encourage me at the same time. It also was pretty cool that on my wedding day, guests came up to me and commented on how good my arms looked. I'd recommend this place to anyone and everyone! More...

I had a phenomenal experience working with Eric Slayton at New York Underground Fitness. Eric is passionate about training and puts all his effort into ensuring his clients are reaching their goals. Eric is hands down, the best trainer out there! He would constantly check in with me and made sure that I was happy with my results. His training is intense, but he doesn’t overwork you. He explains that some of our limitations are mental and we have to push through to reach our goals. Not only has Eric helped me reach my physical goals, but has changed my mindset on life in general! It was a pleasure working with Eric and I know that all his clients can say the same. More...

By far, Eric is THE BEST trainer I have ever used~ Eric trained me over 22 years ago for my wedding when I lived in NYC - results were amazing. I now live in CA, and he trains me 2x a week virtually & coaches me daily "on demand" with nutrition and workouts. Results are incredible. I feel so motivated and many people have commented on the changes. Not only is he effective, he LISTENS, tailors each move to make sure I don't hurt myself, he CARES, has a great sense of humor and is COMMITTED to keeping me on track, even when I don't feel like it. The "on demand" aspect has been a game changer. (What I mean by "on demand" is that it's Eric responding to me live time, not a bot or a canned response). I can text him throughout the day about nutrition choices, and he has NEVER told me I can't eat the things I like - he deals with reality so I don't need to stick to an unrealistic diet. He texts me daily on the days I don't train to tell me what to do for my workouts and he includes stretches specific to what I need. Honestly, I don't typically write reviews, but in this case, I wanted to b/c of how satisfied I am. I'm so grateful for him and how passionate he is. It feels like a true team and he won't let me give up on reaching my goals. More...

This gym is an absolutely GEM in the heart of NYC. I'm beyond thrilled to have discovered it through a PT client. Great for trainers and workout buffs alike, with ALL the necessary equipment for dynamic workouts (free weights, cardio machines, strength machines, cables, bands, ropes, mats, balls, etc. ) for an actually affordable price!! It's almost too good to be true!! More...

Diamond in the rough - Excellent clean gym with everything you need to get in and get out. That includes bench, heavy free weights, squat rack, Stairmaster and more. As a frequent traveler to NYC, this was a tremendous find and I will be back. Thanks for everything. More...

Great little gem of a gym (see what I did there?). Owner is a genuinely nice guy. Great for lifters looking for a short-term gym for some squats, deadlifts, and benching (only one cage and one bench--with safeties--though).
