Tone is all about  making positive change in your life. It doesn't matter if you are athletic and experienced at working out or exercising is something new to your lifestyle. There is a place for everybody at Tone.

Pilates is a routine that conditions the body in so many different ways. Pilates can help you to build increased flexibility, strength, endurance and coordination without adding any bulk to your muscles. As an added benefit, Pilates strengthens your "core" (torso) and helps to improve posture. Pilates training utilizes specialized equipment as well as mat exercises to tone the body.

Looking for something challenging that's also a lot of fun? Then you have to look into Tone's Surf at Tone classes. During this amazing class session, you will get a circuit-training style  cardiovascular workout while using a radical new piece of equipment, the Rip Surfer X, which resembles a surfboard!

Tone 2

Tone is conveniently located right on Broadway, in the heart of Astoria. Their second-floor studio is just a couple of blocks from the N and W Broadway train station.


Right now, Tone is offering NEW clients an intro special: two classes for only $100. That's quite a deal, considering that a single session comes in at $80. Jessica also has a variety of packages available, so be sure to check out their website for further details.

Yoga Agora - Astoria

This charming, beautiful studio takes its name from the central meeting place of the ancient Greeks, the agora. By bringing people together for an enlightening, collective experience, an agora can create a sense of community.

Owner and lead instructor Nick  fervently believes that, in turn, community plays an important role in improving our quality of life. Nick's mission is to make the practice of yoga accessible to all. Nick emphasizes his feeling that "no one is good or bad at yoga." It is best to practice yoga at one's own pace.

Hellgate Road Runners - Astoria

You can't walk around any street in Astoria nowadays without running into a runner, if you'll pardon the pun.

Going out for an invigorating run is the workout of choice for many health-minded local residents.
As a form of exercise, running is usually a solitary venture. But it doesn't have to be. For those who might be looking for other Astoria residents who love to run, then you should look into joining up with Hellgate Road Runners.

Hellgate Road Runner 1

Founded by a group of running buddies, Hellgate Road Runners has been a part of our community since February 1996.

Named after the iconic red bridge that runs over the East River and Astoria Park, HRR is certainly no joke. There is some serious running going on here. In fact, this group has been an official member of the Road Runners Club of America since April of the year that the organization was founded.
They are now incorporated by the State of New York with tax-exempt status.

Hellgate Road Runners 1

Hellgate welcomes runners of all ages and abilities. It's all about having fun and doing something good for your body. Newcomers are usually paired up with members who are, more or less, on the same athletic level.
The club also represents the Astoria community in various competitive charity running events throughout the city.

The Hellgate runners maintain a weekly workout schedule. For example, on Mondays at 7:30 PM the group meets at Shore Blvd. right at the bottom of the big open field situated between the Astoria Park swimming pool and Hellgate Bridge.
You'll certainly feel the burn as the run up the 200 meter hill, then continue on for another 75 meters as the ground levels off and finish up going back down the hill on the other side.

Wednesdays are reserved for speed work, which includes a mile warm-up run as well as repetitions of 400m and 800m on the park track. On Saturday mornings, at 9, you can join in on the long distance group run.

Hellgate Road Runners 3

Besides bonding with fellow amateur runners, you can also connect with running coaches and get useful tips to "up" your game.

Memberships for Hellgate Road Runners cost a very reasonable $25. Please go on their website and simply fill out the application form. And the benefits that you obtain really cannot be measured in money. It's a win-win. There are no losers at all when you run with Hellgate.
