While you’re hunting Black Friday deals on airfare, electronics, homewares and more, know that the holiday is also an opportunity to get a head start on your New Year’s fitness goals. From now through Black Friday, NYC gyms and studios are offering complimentary months, discounts on joiner’s fees and deals on membership packages. As the days get shorter and darker, now’s the time to nip your seasonal affective disorder in the bud — and snap out of your tryptophan and booze-induced Thanksgiving stupor — by getting your sweat on. Here’s what's on offer in NYC.
Now through November 30, you can join any Blink Fitness for only $5, with the rest of the year free. Note that the offer is only valid for green and blue memberships, which typically go for $25 and $20 a month, respectively, and give members access to multiple gym locations as well as deals at Modell’s.
ClassPass, the fitness membership that gives you access to a variety of classes and studio locations every month, has a pretty good joiner incentive this Black Friday. Between 11/24 and 11/27, using the codes BLKFRI17 or CYBERCP to get one month free if you sign up for three, five and 10 class monthly plans.
Get 25 percent off new membership if you join the popular gym, which combines training equipment with a bevy of group fitness classes, from now through Nov. 30.
Join any YMCA location for free during Tuesdays in November. There are two left: Tuesday, Nov. 21, and next Tuesday, Nov. 28. You also get a free day pass, so if you try out the gym on a Tuesday you can decide after your workout if you’re ready to commit.
If you’re serious about bikram yoga — enough to make a year commitment — you can get a discount on 365 days of classes at Manhattan studio Bode NYC. Sign up now through Black Friday and for a year of unlimited classes for $1,595. That comes out to $133/month, $42 off their $175/monthly unlimited membership.
Body Space Fitness, a boutique gym near Union Square offering personal training and bootcamp style group fitness classes, has a few deals available now through Friday, Nov. 24. If you purchase 10 classes, get three free, or buy 20, and get eight free. Current members will receive a free month of classes if they complete early renewal on their membership, while new members can sign up for a 30 Day VIP Kickstart Membership, which includes unlimited group classes, one training session a week, and a fitness “strategy” session.
