Don't think that David Barton is a cut above New York Sports Clubs or Equinox. It's not. Cons: Snooty and unhelpful staff, unreliably instructors, faulty equipment

Best gym in NYC! 12/29/2009

DavidBartonGym is the only gym I go to. Not only is the staff super friendly and extremely encouraging- I always have clean equipment to workout on (with its own TV to boot!) Not only does DavidBartonGym offer spectacular classes- the trainers are extremely qualified and help push me so that I too can ""look better naked"" ;) Not only is the equipment superior, the amenities luxurious, and the music (think- 6 ft disco ball w/live DJs spinning while you workout!) but the people at David Barton and happy to help. A++ Pros: The amazing ambiance and great workout equipment! Cons: -none! more

STAY AWAY 1/31/2009

Stay away from David Barton. Go anywhere else instead. The climate is negative and impersonal. The trainers complain audibly and regularly about their low pay and the clients are not seen as people and members but as numbers. Pros: Convenience if you happen to live nearby Cons: Lousy atmosphere, non-helpful staff, weak and infrequent classes more

Don't Let Them Have Your Credit Card Info -- Ever!!! 4/3/2008

While the facilities look good and the clients are attractive and trendy, beware of what lurks below the surface. Overcrowded, poorly maintained, lousy water pressure and temperature, run out of towels... all symptoms of mismanagement. But: what matters even more is that they have shady business practices (maybe that is why the a major customer service agency ranks them as ""unsatisfactory""). Constant overcharges on my credit card (not small ones -- like approaching $1000!) with absolutely no effort to make good or resolve the problems despite continuous polite requests. Pros: Trendy and attractive customers Cons: Unethical business practices more

Check any other place out besides David Barton for Pilates! 2/18/2008

One day gyms will actually require their trainers to post their training certificates on the wall so customers can know what they are getting. It is hard to find good Pilates training at a gym when the instructors sit down during the entire lesson. I've been to other gyms before and have sweat during my lesson, all they want to do here is talk. They also can't keep good trainers. The good ones never stay around. Then they try to put you with somebody else and you'd rather be in a dentist's chair. The sales staff is nice to you only when you renew. Next time you go into a gym for Pilates ask them if they have the trainers most up to date certification. I'm finding over my years of experience that there are too many people out there who say they are Pilates instructors when all they took where a weekend or online course and are now teaching what they call Pilates. Also, I've trained with both classical trainers and contemporary or stot trainers. Once you've trained with a classical instructor and actually sweat during your lesson, you'll never train contemporary again.David Barton isn't it for Pilates. You're better off going to a place like Uptown Pilates (which actually has good reviews from Citysearch) even though they have a big window right on Madison which seems intrusive. There is a lot more equipment than what is in the front window. Check any other place out besides David Barton for Pilates! Pros: No lines for equipment... Cons: Do I have to say it again.... more
