This is a Hardcore Gym! 5/15/2012

There are gyms and then there are gyms. This is one of the most hardcore gyms I?ve ever been to. The good news is that?s exactly what I needed to get into shape. The personal trainers are friendly but relentless. They didn?t take no for an answer. They kept pushing and pushing until I got the weight off. Now I can?t seem to stay away. My abs are tighter than they?ve ever been and I have this gym to thank for it. It?s a state of the art facility that has serious trainers available to help you. more

Excellent gym 5/31/2011

No reviews in a long time, so I'll throw in my 2 cents. EDGE is probably the best gym in the five boroughs. Definitely the best in NYC. The people that train here are serious but friendly, and the facilities are great. The staff are very nice, but are often busy training clients. The only issue with EDGE is that the olympic platform doesn't behave like other platforms I've used. Even with bumper plates, a weighted bar comes down with a bang as opposed to a dull thud and a bounce. No big deal, though. I'm thrilled just to have a platform to use around here. If you're looking for a good gym, this is the place. If you are looking for for a spa/health club joint where you can pay your fees and make no progress, look elsewhere. more

the great reviews are true 8/11/2010

i was not looking for a new gym, but a co-worker goes to Edge, and was talking about it non-stop. so i went for a look and also joined. this place is amazing. i have never thought of myself as an athlete, more like someone who works out, but these guys are giving me a different perspective. the owners are helpful and friendly and they are also athletes themselves. so when they get excited about your program, it sort of rubs off. for me, what's really good about that is that it makes the whole experience a lot more fun that when working out is just something that you have to do. added benefit -- cool low-key people who go here. more

Most unfriendliest, unprofessional management anywhere 4/22/2010

The success of the gym is strongly reflected upon by its leadership. When I needed to cancel my membership, the front office staff told me that all I had to do was write a letter stating the reason. When I sent the letter, nobody got back to me, after several attempts to reach the management by email, phone, and voicemail. more

Great gym with actual results 9/15/2009

I've been doing POWERHIT for about three months now and thought it was time to weigh in. First, everything people say here is true. And I have a few things to add. The progress I've made in the past few months has been amazing, way more than ever before. Also, the only thing better than the progress I've made is the potential that I can now see in myself. This really is a life changing thing. The positive impact on my body, as well as my personal and professional lives has been marked. I can't say enough good things about this gym and this program. Honestly Pros: POWERHIT, professional staff, results more

No contest. Best Gym in NYC aka best gym in the WORLD!!! 9/10/2009

I moved to NYC 10 months ago. It took me 9 months & about 15 trial gym memberships to find EXACTLY what I was looking for. I had no idea a gym like this even existed. But low & behold, all of my prayers came true & EDGE shed a ray of light in the concrete jungle. As a former division 1 athlete (Geaux Tigers!) I have no patience for all of these fake gyms with no back bone. So here it is people, the best gym in all the world. Best trainers, best equipment, best of everything, no question. And most importantly, a place where real athletes can thrive. more

City's best gym for those who are serious about fitness 8/30/2009

Edge isn't just your average gym. It is well run with several programmes and classes for all levels of fitness. Safety and fitness are a priority at Edge.Convenient hours. The staff and management are extremely knowledgable and really care about the members of this gym. I have joined several gyms before and lost interest ater a few months. This one is a keeper. Highly recommend it! Pros: Pristine equipment, professional, friendly staff. more

The Last Gym I Will Ever Join 8/28/2009

I have joined more gyms in my life than I care to count and like many people, I paid the monthly fee for absolutely nothing but a feeling of guilt. EDGE will be the last gym I join because they have me as a customer for life! When a coworker first brought me to EDGE, Denis explained that the reason people don't go to gyms once they join is because the ""one free lesson with a trainer"" most gyms offer isn't enough to teach people how to train on their own and keep them coming back. He's right, I always felt intimidated and like I didn't know what I was doing and the lack of individual contact made me feel invisible... so soon I really was invisible. Bally's, NYSC, I've tried them all. Pros: individual attention, small classes, reasonably priced more

Awesome Gym 8/27/2009

I have been going to gyms my entire life and I have never had such a positive experience that I have had at Edge. The trainers are motivating and super informed. All the staff from the owners on down take a great amount of pride in their job and the service they provide. The gym was obviously built by serious lifters as every last detail has been considered. Pros: knowledgable staff, super clean facilities. more

No Regrets..Guaranteed! 8/27/2009

I recently joined EDGE and have no regrets. I have had my share of disappointments with other facilities and felt that I was throwing my money away. I know I am getting an incredible experience at EDGE. The personal attention from management is second to none. Nowhere else have I seen such dedication to members. It is encouraging and inspiring. Pros: Excellent website, great atmoshphere, RESULTS. Cons: None. more

Could be one of the few five-star gyms in the country 8/27/2009

You could be a face in the crowd at New York Sports Club, slowly getting bored until you stop going. Or, perhaps worse, continuing to go and just spin your wheels, not making any progress. Or you could spend your last penny on a Reebok membership, maybe get a chance to play pickup basketball with some minor celebrity. But when you get home, you're just a nobody, ""going to the gym"" to keep up in the r at race. Edge brings out your inner athlete -- you're motivated through the owners' knowledge and the great equipment, provided in a clean, stylish setting. When you get home from a Power Hi t workout, you're somebody. And the next workout, you try to surpass who you were. These reviews are great and they all speak the truth. Don't be scared off if it sounds like too serious a gym for you. Edge is a respectful place where people with pro cards, sport-specific athletes, and absolute beginners mix together and everyone values the same thing -- hard work. No one cares what you can or can't do or lift, as long as YOU care. Pros: nice people; clean; very motivating place; lots of knowledge Cons: none -- maybe having to buy new clothes when you transform more

The Last Gym You Will Ever Join! 8/27/2009

I live in Hell's Kitchen and I make the trip all the way to the UES just to go to this gym because there is NOTHING else like it in the city, and believe me, I've looked! Pros: Clean, Great equipment, Fun people more

Powerhit is proof positive this gym takes fitness seriously! 8/27/2009

I've been in gyms for about 18 years now, all over the world and for a variety of sports, and none compare to the Edge in terms of its commitment to excellence and focus on results. Edge offers ""Powerhit"" -- a training program provided to any member interested and willing to commit -- which I've never seen another gym do. Imagine, you're getting a weekly training program from a top trainer, free of charge! And this program even includes ""fun"" things called ""Minis"", which are competitive and short fitness tests where you can challenge yourself to be stronger, faster, better ... I say ""fun"" because they're usually pretty painful, but always worth the pain! :) Another plus for me is that the gym is never crowded, and the crowd that IS there is very inspiring. People take their training seriously! All in all, I would recommend Edge to anyone who wants a REAL gym -- a top-notch facility, fantastic trainers, and holistic commitment to training and health. Pros: Powerhit training program, fantastic equipment Cons: None! more

Pristine UES Training Gym 8/27/2009

Edge gym is just is immaculately clean and very well maintained. Powerhit is a personal training program that is guaranteed to kick your butt on every level imaginable. It is by far and away the best workout ever. And, there are bikes, treadmills, and weights galore that you can do on your own if you aren't into the one-on-one training. Pros: Powerhit! Cons: Powerhit! more

Finally, real results! 8/27/2009

EDGE is where you come when you want to step it up and start seeing real change in your body. As a former dancer, I wanted to find a way to stay sculpted and in top shape. The PowerHit program at EDGE was my answer. I have been at EDGE for over a year now. I've dropped ten pounds while doing the PowerHit program, overhauled my diet with the help and advice of one of the owners, and have made a bunch of friends in the process. I am now in better shape than I have ever been, and all my friends ask about how I have managed to make such noticeable change in my body. I always tell them: EDGE. Another notable about this gym: both co-owners go out of their way to make members feel welcome, often greeting them by name. You're never just a random face in the crowd or a dollar sign. Can you say that about your gym? Pros: Individual attention, not the same old sweatmill more

The best Gym in NYC 8/27/2009

I joined Edge shortly after they opened three years ago. I am 45 years old and hadn't worked out in over fifteen years. Denis was amazing and put me on a program that has literaly changed my life. When I first started there I couldn't even run on the treadmill- walking only for me! Three years later I have completed three marathons and finished my first Triathlon last weekend finishing fourth in my age group! These guys are amazing, the price is right and you owe it to yourself to come in and take a tour. You will not be disappointed! Pros: Facility, Shake Bar, Trainers and staff more

BEST GYM 8/26/2009

I am on the USA men?s basketball team for 2009 Summer Deaflympics. In New York City, I was trying to find the best gym in which has great trainers. I was highly recommended to the Edge gym for committed athletics and others else. I came to the gym to see a friendly trainer. The trainer seriously got what I need help. I had been working out with the trainer for two months. Now, I am in the top shape. I absolutely pumped for all basketball games in the Deaflympics event. I truly thanked to the trainer so much. Pros: Clean Space, Neat Gym, Great equipment, Deaf-friendly staffs more

It's great for serious athletes and deaf clients! 8/24/2009

I am a former NCAA Div. I deaf shot-putter and currently a deaflympian. I have been to Edge since summer 2007. I am glad that I made a right decision to choose this gym. It is hard to find a gym like Edge in New York City. Edge offers a sport-specific program for serious athletes regarding its philosophy. Its trainers ensure safety that they would assist you to do proper techniques of lifting and exercises. If you have any question for them about exercises, they would be pleased to help you. Edge trainers, staffs, and clients are friendly that they will be greeting you when you come into the gyms. Edge is also great for deaf clients since its staffs and trainers are willing to communicate with deaf clients in different ways such as a gesture or writing down. In addition, some of them like to learn sign language to speak with deaf clients. Edge has provided a closed caption on plasma TV as well. Edge?s overall environment, which is great, keeps me motivated to lift weights. I have been improving my strength and explosiveness from Edge?s program. I shall continue to train there. Pros: Smoothie Bar, Neat Gym, Deaf-friendly Staffs more

They pay Attn! 7/25/2008

Great trainers at Edge! They pay attention to what you say you need help on, provide great consultation and it actually suits your needs as opposed to some packaged workout that some people use for EVERYBODY when we all have different bodies and problem areas. I'm throughly satisfied with Edge! Yay! more

Hands down best gym in the city 5/1/2008

I have been training for 5 years and for the last 2 at EDGE. If you are serious about getting results whether it be improving your fitness, strength, or just interested in being healthy this is the place for you. The best part of the gym is the friendly, non-intimidating atmosphere. The equipment is top-notch, brand new, and clean. The locker room and showers are immaculate. And there is never a wait for the cardio equipment but I am afraid that after writing this review this relatively undiscovered gem on the upper east side might get a little more crowded. Pros: great atmosphere. almost guaranteed to get results if you join. Cons: only one location in the city. more
