I initially joined Fit RxN for the group fitness classes, I found them to be well taught, challenging and and they made an positive impact on my fitness level in a short amount of time.  I continue to take group fitness classes but have also been utilizing personal training sessions with Mr. Ray.  The training sessions have been great , I have learned to push myself, do a few more reps, use a heavier weight etc.. I have found Mr. Ray to be a honest and patient professional.  He has great communication skills -he frequently inquires on how my arthritic knee is feeling and makes thoughtful modifications to ensure no pain to my knee, and focuses on overall strengthening.  It is clear to me that Mr. Ray is well educated and trained in fitness, and is passionate and dedicated to teaching.I have met many neighbors in the group fitness classes, and have made some great friends who also enjoy a challenging workout, supporting each other, motivating music, and a few laughs.

I've been a member since 2013. My main draw has been - and continues to be - the instructors. In my eyes, everyone here here has always been welcoming, encouraging and professional. Last year in April I had shoulder surgery and was given 6-8 months to recover. I enlisted the help of Ray to beat those odds and get me back on track quicker. I started by training privately with him. It wasn't easy. We started at 5:30 in the morning before anyone else was there. From day one Ray meant business; the baby steps felt like giant steps. Thankfully, he has a good amount of humor even at the crack of dawn- so that helped.During our one-on-one sessions Ray focused on re-teaching my body to use my once bad shoulder. This meant starting from scratch. However, within 4 months of surgery I was doing push-ups. A year to the day of my surgery I accomplished my very first hand stand. Although I had the initial ambition, I would not have reached my goals so quickly without the engagement of Ray. He combined tough love with humor and always cheered when I hit a milestone. I have felt empowered and supported by him and his team every step of the way- and can happily say early morning sessions are much easier to bear! More...

I just took my first boxing class with Mr. Ray. Mr. Ray is the definition of tough love. Efter the third set of burpees, I still wanted to make Mr. Ray proud, so I pushed myself and I’m so happy I did. My body, mind and spirit are grateful for the encouragement and the buttkicking. Thanks Mr. Ray and Fit RxN. I will definitely be back. More...

Great place for a solid workout ! If I lived in the neighborhood it would be a solid 5 stars.Pros:- Instructors are engaging, motivating & personable. They make an effort to address you by name and correct form.- Classes are not too crowded - Receptionist is friendly as well, and the place is well kept - I always see someone wiping things down when I come in. Cons:- Location: bit of a trek from the nearest subway stop at 59st Columbus Circle, part of which is uphill - account for commute time accordingly - No showers, though they do have baby wipes to help freshen up- Class times: somewhat limited in terms of evening class offerings (no ~5pm option) and only daytime options on Fridays & weekendsIf you live in the area I definitely recommend that you check it out - come changed, don't bring too much stuff (they provide lockers w/ keys but they are kind of small), and go home to shower afterwards.

I was having some trouble getting back in shape after coming off an injury from when I was doing serious-ish running. I took some classes here from a Groupon deal and it seemed like a good change of pace. I've stayed up with it after the ran out because it was doing such an effective job of shaking me out of my rut. After a few months I feel like I'm back where I was before my injury. A special shout out to Bonnie's classes. She really does a great job changing things up in a well-thought out way. It's always different, but never feels unplanned. More...

First, let me be clear. I am not in the best of shape. I was once near 400 lbs.  After losing close to 100 lbs, I started working out again at FiTRxn.  I had to learn how to move again and build strength. I don't think I could go anywhere else. The staff is super supportive, as are the other people in the classes.  Never have I been made to feel awkward or out of place when I have to modify a move, or take a break.  They cheer me on. I take classes with Mr Ray and Bonnie and have gotten hooked.  I am so much stronger and functional now. I recommend this gym to any level of fitness (or non-fitness).  Give it a try! More...

I take Fit Rxn through ClassPass and I am hooked. The studio is very welcoming and inviting, and I know feel like I am part of a Fit Rxn family. My favorite instructors are Bonnie and Shane. Both are different in how they approach classes, but are challenging in their own way. Bonnie often focuses on strength on the TRX bands, and she separates the class into exercises with the TRX bands, and a solid core workout.Shane is a BEAST. His classes are conditioning focused, which I personally find extremely difficult. But, he is there to support, and is constantly encouraging to push his students to their limit. His classes are antithesis of the word "basic." I always leave his class feeling that I had the best work out (in addition to being very sore). I absolutely recommend Shane and Bonnie! More...

Better than any other gym in NYC, because you won't find the same trainers anywhere else. Classes are small enough that you get enough personal attention to better/perfect your form or push you just a little harder than you would push yourself. Trainers and classes are always full of energy and super fun that it makes consistently working out THAT much easier!

I took the cardio TRX mash up with Bonnie. It was a great workout! The instructor asked if anyone was new and was happy to help. The facilities are clean but don't offer a locker/changing room (not a big deal as long as you come prepared.) I used a ClassPass for this studio so the price was reasonable and they haven't been bombarding with solicitations. The location is kind of off the beaten track but worth the effort! More...

To say I like FIT RxN would be a lie.  Actually ... I love to hate it bc it kicks my ass EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. and that, I L-O-V-E!  During the 20+ years I've lived in NYC I've boxed at gyms, downward dogged at yoga studios, cycled at clubs, trained in CP, biked the river and never have I more thoroughly enjoyed a workout as much as I do with Mr. Ray at FIT RxN!  Have you met this incredible man?  Well, you need to. Unlimited energy.  Endless knowledge of health and fitness. Tough love, Unmatched kindness and warmth.  Somehow he exudes all the caring of a life long best friend while simultaneously mastering THE best workout ever!!  Each and every staff member at FIT RxN is more incredible than the next.  Mr. Ray has rounded up an awesome team of individuals who motivate you to show up week after week and make you feel welcomed into their #fitfamily from the moment you walk through the door.  These classes are no joke, but no matter your fitness level you will be successful and leave wanting more.  My two favorite classes are TRX MASH UP and CoreRxN-TRX, Sandbells, Mat-work.  No matter how hard a workout moment is, Mr. Ray believes in me and that makes me believe more in myself. No matter your size, shape or attitude - bring it!  Mr. Ray and FIT RxN has got you covered! More...

At first I was a bit surprised that the instructor didn't start the class asking "who's new?" and this was probably because I was nervous that I wouldn't be great at this. I realized afterwards that it didn't matter who was new or not. I did the TRX class and it was small enough where everyone got individual attention, everyone was expected to do their best and push themselves (beginner or not). I loved this! I'll definitely be back soon. :) More...

Amazing workouts and phenomenally talented instructors who take your health and progress seriously.  Yes, FIT RxN delivers a boutique fitness experience like a lot of people enjoy - the classes are small, studio is gorgeous, music is well-selected - but the best part of going to a class at FIT RxN is the knowledge and professionalism of the instructors.  As someone who had surgery for breast cancer years ago, I have been hesitant to go to boutique classes, which are often focused on pushing beyond what is truly safe or effective on an individual level.  I immediately felt comfortable and safe that the instructors at FIT RxN would challenge me in a safe manner at my level.  My husband and I both loved our classes - challenging, unique, awesome.  (If you take a look at the instructor bios, you'll see that Mr. Ray has specialized cancer exercise training - if you're someone who has had surgery and worries about finding an instructor who understands post-surgical changes, look no further - Mr. Ray is your man!)Sadly, we moved away from NYC and this studio is the one that I will miss most.  Don't wait - get to FIT RxN today!

Let me just say, WOW. Now THAT is a workout. I took my first class yesterday - FIT HIIT with Jeff - and I seriously am still feeling accomplished this morning. It was challenging but kept you moving and switching up workouts enough that the 45 minutes seriously just flew by. It's a pretty no-nonsense class...I definitely wouldn't call it the most "fun" class I've ever taken, but it gets the job done. I also think it would probably get more fun as you get over the learning curve. I definitely struggled with form on some of the exercises, and Jeff was really good at correcting me and making sure I kept utilizing those corrections.I also really appreciated that the class was so small. Only six on a Monday afternoon! Jeff mentioned that his Wednesday FIT HIIT class is usually bigger, so I might stick to Mondays, because even with six I sometimes felt like I was tripping over people when transitioning between workouts - not sure how many more people I could have dealt with! But again, might change as you get used to the space.Overall, expect an incredibly hard class, but one that will make you feel like you really worked afterwards. Jeff is really encouraging and genuinely seems like a nice guy. He also had his dog in the studio, which as a dog person I really enjoyed! But of course, if you're not into dogs, might be something to be aware of before you come. Definitely going to be back! More...

I've really enjoyed and recommend Fit Rxn. The classes feel different to others I've been to. For a start, they're not too large - usually between 4-9 people for the TRX and kettlebell classes I have gone to. I always feel like I have learned a lot and can transfer that into my regular workout at my usual gym, where I now work a lot harder as a result. Whilst the classes are a reasonable price it's not practical for me to use this place as my only exercise option so it's important to learn enough to apply elsewhere. I've found the classes super challenging but not too aggressive or over-the-top or any of the usual complaints from gym classes. It's more like the best of both worlds between classes and PT. I have particularly enjoyed the Saturday kettlebell classes where I feel like I'm really learning a lot. The place is very clean, modern and the instructors are friendly and try to give it a personal touch. More...

Came here on classpass.  I have had a few instructors now and have really enjoyed my classes in the TRX mashup class.  TRX uses ropes and bodyweight for all of your workouts.  They are the yellow and black suspension ropes you see in the gym.  I bet you look at those things and think "wow what a whimp.  how is that even a workout?" when you see someone using those things. Well once in a class you will probably start to sweat, then ache, then cry and you will never talk crap again.Even with a large group they will rotate you between trx and floor work.  It is super impressive that the instructors can motivate two different groups doing two different exercises at the same time.  It is truly multitasking at its best.  This keeps everyone constantly moving.  Only this is you are asked to share a sweaty mat and suspension rope with someone else.  Ewwy. Every TRX workout I have done has kicked my ass.  They also have a spin studio here and offer a 30/30 Spin and TRX class in which you spin for 30 and TRX for 30. Maybe it was just the class I took but it wasnt my favorite as I hate spinning without spin shoes (I wasn't prepared) and by the time I was building up my sweat on the spin bike, I already had to switch. TRX Mashup though ... top notch! Do that one.On a final note, they do not have showers but they do provide you with lockers that have their own locks. JD, Ray, and Lauren are great instructors that I have used. More...

If you haven't tried a class at FIt RxN yet, you're missing out! Get on that as soon as possible. My experience is based solely on Jeff's 7am TRX Mashup on Wednesdays, but if there wasn't a 3 class/month limit on Class Pass I'd be back here way more often than that. Every class I've taken has been different and pushed me to my limits. Jeff is the best trainer I've worked with (and I've taken A LOT of classes). He's not going to accept anything less than your best, but he's also going to make sure you're doing things the right way (this is where the ball gets dropped sometimes in other studios). From what I can tell, he's in good company at FIT RxN where the trainer standards are high. I've heard plenty of other people talk about how great all the classes are so whatever works for your schedule, do it! Also the space is great, clean, and two nice showers! More...

JD's TRX Class is one of the most challenging and motivating fitness classes I've taken in a long while.  I was hesitant about it going in because I have just fully recovered from a labrum tear after 4 months of intensive physical therapy.  Since I was basically unable to do full body workouts for 4 months, I am also in the worst shape of my life and unsure of my limits.When I met JD, one of the first things he told me was that he would help me modify and keep that shoulder safe and he definitely delivered.  He checked in on me during each exercise and make sure that I wasn't over exerting the shoulder.  Yet, he didn't take it easy on me either.  I felt motivated and challenged, but safe.  I never felt discouraged or embarrassed if I couldn't complete a movement and JD helped me modify to my fitness ability.The class itself is super difficult and definitely left my full body sore for DAYS.  I would definitely recommend classes at FIT RxN and with JD.  Certainly will be back for more as I continue to heal and want to challenge myself.
