Life Health & Fitness - Astoria, NY. Recently, we had the pleasure of visiting with the crew at Life Health & Fitness located at the legendary Kaufman Astoria Studios.
We have been in a lot of Astoria gyms and Life Fitness & Health is totally unique. According to Lisa, one of the Life Fitness Staffers, "Our mission is the internal health and well-being of our members." On the lounge area blackboard, owner Sophocles Tsouros has a great saying: "A healthy body inspires a healthy mind." Soph works out several times per week. A lifelong athlete, Sophocles espouses exercise as the best preventative medicine that you can do for yourself!
All too often, when seeking a gym to call home, Astorians find that some gyms cater only to hardcore muscle fanatics, while so-called "family friendly" fitness centers can lack basic amenities or up-to-date equipment.
Life Fitness is a beautiful, state-of-the-art place where everyone can have fun getting healthy. Lisa told us that they have a very diverse membership - men and women from 18-78. It's all about building a sense of trust and community. Best of all, they are aninsurance-friendly gym, too. Their total body modification program lasts 12 weeks and, believe us, you will not get bored. It includes one-on-one personal training sessions massage therapy, chiropractic care as well as dietary and nutritional counseling. The desk promoters are friendly and knowledgeable.
Life's trainers are all top-notch, including Edwin. A former U.S. Marine, Edwin considers himself to be a motivator and caregiver for his clients and gym members. Never too busy to answer a question, Edwin trains his clients at their pace, moving them along in a comfortable fashion, yet getting the desired results! Try finding that kind of personal attention in one of those commercial box gyms.
Now come inside Life Health & Fitness for a tour. You will find a gym worthy of its motion picture studio complex location. Gym members can read, go on their phone or just relax in a lounge that resembles an upscale, trendy living room. And you might catch one of the trainers, sitting there with their PC, prepping for a client session. Heading past the well-stocked water and juice area, we go over to the gorgeous glass studios. These spacious studios feature classes for cycling, yoga Pilates, kick-boxing, stick-fighting and a SilverSneakers program.
Function, an expert chiropractic office is also on the premises. The workout area is bright, clean and cheerful. You will find all the in-demand weights and treadmill/cardio equipment including hammer strength seated calf and squat excercise machines.
Life Fitness is located in the heart of Astoria at 37-11 35th Avenue, right near the Chicago Uno Grill and P.C. Richard. Their phone number is (718) 349-3494. Owner Sophocles is a big supporter of local charitable endeavors and the gym also offers special rates to firefighters, EMTs, law enforcement, students, teachers, the military and MTA workers.
You've never been inside a gym quite like Life Health & Fitness. As for all of you fellow Astorians with a busy, non-stop schedule, Life Fitness has the hours to suit your lifestyle! The gym is open Monday through Friday from 5 AM until 11 PM. The Saturday and Sunday hours are 7 AM-1 PM.
