The best gym I have ever been to 6/4/2010

I have belonged to five different gyms in Manhattan, Brooklyn & Queens, including the higher-end Health and Racquet Club, and also NYSC, and I think Evolution is the best of all of them. The atmosphere is great. It is diverse, men and women, old and young. It is not meat-markety or a pick-up scene. As a woman I am totally comfortable working out there. There are also some senior citizen members there, and I like that they are comfortable at Evolution, too. Everyone who works there is really nice and helpful. Once they learn your name, they'll remember it and use it, which is a nice personal touch. I feel like I'm at home when I'm there. Totally happy and comfortable and no drama. Also, I have worked out early mornings and after work, and I've never had a problem with overcrowding. Occasionally, all the ellipticals will be taken, but that is rare. It's not dog-eat-dog to get the machines. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is also spotless. The staff is cleaning all the time... cleaning the classroom, the locker room, wiping down the machines, vacuuming, it's great. The classes are also really awesome. Some of the instructors have cultish followings, and with good reason! I have been a member of Evolution since July 2007, just after they opened, and dread the day when I leave Astoria and will have to go to some other inferior gym! Pros: great instructors, great hours, spotless, diverse members, more

Good Gym 5/11/2010

I enjoy the long hours Evolution Provides Pros: Hours more

Great gym 5/11/2010

Great gym! Great price! Love the vibe in the gym! I joined 8mths ago and was a little disappointed with the old GM, he always had an attitude! Now after they fired him, the gym has alot better vibe, best of luck! Btw! Love the new colors more

Great Atmosphere! Clean and friendly, GREAT GYM!!! 4/29/2010

I've loved this gym from the moment I walked in! The most important thing for me in a gym is feeling comfortable enough to work out there. I'll admit I was a bit sceptical at first because it is a more high-end looking gym but to my very pleasant surprise not only was it affordable but I felt comfortable and right at home from the start! more

Under New Managment 4/26/2010

This Gym was always Great but now with a NEW General Manager it is even Better. The staff is always smiling and ready to help you. This is a high end Gym at a Astoria Price , Just LOVE It. Pros: Friendly more

ABSOLUTELY THE BEST GYM IN ASTORIA 12/19/2009

I am a female member for 2 years and I must say that every day that I go there the staff, trainers, and especially the owner Anthony, makes me feel special and treats me with such respect. The members are truly nice and respectable towards everyone. Pros: Great Staff, Nice Machines, Great Hours Cons: No pool more

Great Health Club 12/15/2009

One of the best health clubs I have ever been a member of. There clean and friendly and best of all open 24 hours which fits my schedule perfect. I highly recommend Evolution Sports Club. Pros: Open 24 Hours more

good gym but crooks 11/14/2009

My extremely low rating is based on the service I have received after leaving the gym. The gym is good - low-key, never crowded, good classes. BUT.... Shortly after paying a 12 month membership in full, I unexpectedly moved out of the area. To cancel membership, I followed their explicit instructions, including proving that I had moved more than 25 miles from the gym. It took FIVE MONTHS to finally get my refund, and that was only after I got my lawyer involved. Prior to that, I had made easily more than 10 phone calls to them to no avail. A lot of excuses were made as to the hold up. Like I said, it was finally resolved, but I think it took a lawyer for them to take action. So if you're on your own, good luck. Pros: never crowded; good group classes Cons: extremely unprofessional in refunding my money more

Hassel Free Membership 9/10/2009

I first signed up for a month to month membership because I have had some bad experiences with other health clubs in New York. I liked Evolution so much after 3 months I just switched my membership to a yearly plan. No pressure when you walk through the door, always a smile from the staff and no personal trainers hounding your every move. I highly recommend Evolution Sports Club. Pros: Hours & Classes more

Good luck getting back money you are owed! 8/31/2009

My experience with this gym and with Anthony M., the owner, should make everyone think twice about joining--or renewing their membership. Cons: Owner appears responsive until it's time to pay more

Happy New Member 5/18/2009

As a long time member of NYSC I was really worried about changing. I lowered my monthly rate from $80 per month to $39 per month and have a gym thats open 24 hours. Its clean, they offer towels and have good classes. Pros: Great Price & Hours more

Hospitality 1/28/2009

I'm new to New York and searched for a new gym for about 3 weeks before I found evolution, I've never been a gym person in fact I've always hated the gym but I promised myself for the new year I would start taking care of myself. Evolution is a great mix of classes, equipment and hours. Its very clean (a sticking point with me) and there staff is very friendly and helpful. I signed up with no sign up fee... Pros: Hours and Price Cons: One Location more

Home away from Home 12/15/2008

Before joining Evolution Sports Club I was never a member of a health club so at first I was a little skeptical about being a member and seeing any type of results. Well 40lbs later any reservations I might have had have answered. Just the atmosphere alone makes me want to keep going not to mention there hours. There open 24 hours and when ever I get the urge I just go, never thought I would find myself working out at 2am. I have been working out with a personal trainer and he really has changed my mindset towards diet and exercise. They have really nice locker room & juice bar ?which is also open 24 hours? and offered me a great rate. I recommend Evolution to any first time gym people like myself, they make you feel right at home! Pros: Great hours and its really clean Cons: Please play more ""ROCK"" more

Great Hours 11/3/2008

The Simple fact that there open 24 hours attracted me to the club. It?s always clean and they have really good equipment. I take a few classes a week and really enjoy there boot camp classes and spin classes. Management is helpful and the staff is warm and friendly. I highly recommend evolution sports club. Pros: Open 24 hours more

Best Facilities, Best Hours, Best Price, Best Staff-Hands Down!!! 9/12/2008

After Reading what a few disgruntled people said about this Club I can only laugh at them. Evolution Sports Club has only been around since April 2007, and I have been a member since May 2007. This place is my second home and I cannot get enough of it. First let me start off with the price-$54.99/month, that is amazing!!! This is half of the monthly costs for Clubs located throughout the city and Evolution has THE BEST EQUIPMENT available today. I honestly say that the monthly price is the best value for ANYTHING in New York City. Pros: EVERYTHING!!! Cons: None that come to mind more

Best gym in Astoria 9/11/2008

I've been a member of several gyms in Astoria, for example BQE, the Rock, Club Fitness to name a few, and Evolution is by far the best. The dues are fair and the equipment is of high quality and always clean. If I ever had any questions or problems, Anthony is always there to answer and solve them. I would definitely reccommend this gym with a helpful staff and excellent trainers. I have no idea why anybody would go anywhere else. Pros: great staff...great price...great place Cons: summer class schedule more

Flexable gym membership 7/14/2008

There open 24 hours which makes it very flexable for me. With law school and a full time job it does not leave much room for working out. Its nice to know I can go to the gym anytime. My monthly dues are less then I was paying at crunch and I have a much better club. Everything is on one open floor and they have very nice locker rooms. My thing is cardio and they have no sign up sheets. Pros: Flexable hours Cons: Wish they had classes after 10pm more

A Great Club at a Great Price 7/14/2008

Honestly I dont know what this last reviewer is talking about?? There monthly dues are not even $65 or $75 per month. My monthly dues have been have been $54 per month since I started over a year ago. There open 24 hours, have great classes and a great staff. The locker rooms are very clean and have top of the line equipment. I highly recomend the club both for price and amenities... Pros: OPEN 24 HOURS Cons: NO POOL YET more
