This place is the worst. Try to find another place. It's cheap but a local park is cheaper and yes much safer. The place is a mess, the bathrooms are scary. There is no customer service, the classes are just sad!

I can't believe this place is still in business!

Pros: it's one of the cheaper places...but then again worst value

Cons: just about everything

.

You get what you paid for with "Absolute Power", low price, poor quality of equipment and abysmal customer service. I tried to join on a Sunday afternoon, after filling the application, the credit card machine could not read my visa card, so my accound was not debited. I was asked to come back the next day, whereupon I was supposed to receive my tag and my picture would have been taken for the database. I never came back, so all this never happened. Surprise, surprise.... more than nine months later, I received a collection letter from "Absolute Power" for a contract that never even came into effect! And to add insult to injury: instead of apologising flatly for their mistake, "Absolute Power" followed up with a phone call, where I was yelled at!! There is no phone number for the management, and not even an address to write too!! I guess "Absolute Power" has not changed a bit since their 2007 attempt to scam 650 customers!! Check this from the Attorney General's website: http://www.ag.ny.gov/media_center/2007/jul/jul3a_07.html

For $30 a month, what more would anyone want. This place is 5 blocks from my house and 1.5blocks from the L train. It's perfect! It has all the equipment I need, including classes that I do not have to pay extra for.
The most important thing is that i am not bothered at this gym. I like to get in and out without to much hassle, and it certainly doesn't burn a whole in my wallet.
Don't bother looking anywhere else, this is the cheapest place in town.

A nice neighborhood gym, affordable and never crowded. I was a member of Crunch before and I vastly prefer this one.

Absolute power is da bomb. Its da best gym if you just want to work out and not deal with any nonsense.
At times da music is too loud but when you only pay $250 for a year what do you expect?
The only negative is the staff. Miguel is the worst. He is really, really bad because his protein shakes are da worst.
There are some fly ladies in the gym as well. Love it when the aerobics door is open.
Anyways, join the gym. Its a good gym when the super hasnt closed it down.

Absolute power is generally a really good gym, especially for the price (which has been upped to $350 a year, but only if you pay it all up front). Cardio machines are top notch, and there is a wide variety of weight machines, free weights, etc. The locker room is pretty crappy, about half the lockers are busted in and the shower looks like it hasn't been cleaned. Ever. Needless to say I've never seen anyone shower there, and people who opt for lockers just bring a lock for while they are there, and take everything home with them (you can't leave anything in a locker overnight). There also aren't many options for stretching because the small aeorobics room is always in use by classes. Other than that it is a comfortable gym with a nice layout. TVs over the treadmills are nice. Most people seem to go there just to lift weights, so cardio machines are never crowded despite looking like they are all new machines.

Bare bones gym, nothing special, but it is pretty cheap. Bad news: Recently plays super loud bad techno music. So loud that it's impossible to listen to your personal music on ipod or walkman. Staff is really rude about turning the music down. It's too bad because we used to really like working out there.

I found an affordable comfortable atmosphere in a gym finally. I recenlty moved from sunset park to the kensington area of Brooklyn so I have experienced working out at two of the 3 locations and feel the same about them both bring an i-pod or walkman as the music is there to dull down the sounds of the banging of the weights. Everyone is respectful and friendly I love the sauna in the kensington location!! And the aerobics instructors like Lissette and Sara really work you out!!! Thanks girls I look and feel great! And thank you Absolute Fitness for an affordable, clean gym.

Absolute Power provides its members fitness in a "cheers" like setting where everyone feels like someone! Their staff is corteous and helpful. Theyre also equipped with enough machines to cater to the 5pm rush hr with no or a possible 1 min wait time for a machine. The gym is clean and has a diverse population and a yearly mbsp of $250 and you cant beat that in brooklyn!!

I have been a member for about a year. I love the diversity of the population and the cheap price most. The downside is the AC/ fans don't really run that high (a probably this time of the year!) and when classes are being held in the only room you can stretch in. I find it a bit misleading to call this place a "ex-con hangout". This is really a no frills neighborhood gym that attracts a very diverse population. Just a great value overall!

Pros: price, lots of weights

Cons: AC/ fans on low, no space to stretch, dated cardio machines

.

Ok, so its nothing special, but you cannot beat the price of a year membership for 250 bucks. Be prepared to bring your headphones unless you enjoy hearing the exact same reggaeton songs over and over and over again. This is a good gym for people who want nothing more than to work out, and get out as quick as possible. It is not a social scene at all, and everyone keeps to themselves for the most part, which I prefer. The locker rooms are a dump, don't expect much of anything else than what you see from the window outside, cause it ain't in here.

Pros: Cheap, Simple

Cons: Ex-Con hangout, Repetitive Music

Nothing fancy, but nobody's going to try to pick you up on the Stairmaster, either. For the basic gym needs, here you go. Treadmills, free weights, bikes, etcetera -- the locker rooms are clean and it's never too crowded. Rates are fairly low, and you can pay by the month if you want.

PROS: location, basic needs
CONS:
