I really wish I could like this place because it's close by making it extremely convenient. The actual gym is nice and has all the machines necessary for a good workout. The problem is the staff, or I should say, the owner David who is so arrogant and displeasing that he ruins it. He's totally rude and obnoxious and acts like he's doing you a favor by allowing you to use his gym. I also find that some, not all, of the other staff members are not as cordial as can be but I think that comes from having to work under this boss. Linda is ok, but Danielle seems to have an atitude most of the time, but I don't blame her because I couldn't imagine what working for a guy like him would feel like.

However if you're a decent looking woman David will probably be very nice to you so you might have a different perspective because he will bend over backwards to "help" you with your workouts. He actually seems borderline perverted the way he oogles over the women at the gym. Pretty women are the only members he seems to be nice to and "help".

As convenient as the place is for me, I cannot give this man my business. I really wish someone else bought this gym, I'd be first in line to sign up again.

Business Response:

Looking back on this review, I have been back and forth for sometime now if I should dignify this with a response due to the lack of authenticity this review portrays (the false name, email and picture that this person posted). Some time ago the studio came across a discontent member, which the staff and I had tremendously tried to work with to resolve and understand his/her concerns and troubles. Unfortunately, the situation escalated and required us to take the initiative action to have the member leave the studio for the welfare and safety of our clients. Overall receiving feedback and criticism of the studio and the staff through City Search and Yelp, is helpful for us to further enhance the studio’s performance and services for the benefit of our clients. We have been trying for 15 years to create a welcoming and positive environment for our community members. Aiming for perfection is impossible and illusory, however, being authentic and making room for improvement to one-self in everything you do is what I go by.
.

This gym has the advantage of usually being fairly empty. I belong for this reason, and because they happen to have machines that work particularly well with some joint issues I have. \n\nHOWEVER, I wouldn't recommend this place to most sane people. They no longer provide towels, apparently because they don't trust us not to steal them. The people who work here have no interest in the comfort of the guests. Upstairs, where there are some machines and all the weight equipment (plus all the windows!), the people at the front desk now spend their time watching very loud movies on a giant screen over the front desk. If you happen to want to listen to music on headphones while you work out, forget it. You can't escape the gunshots, etc. from the huge TV, and they refuse to turn it down, even if you're alone there with just the person behind the desk. \n\nDownstairs, where most of the exercise machines lurk in a windowless room, there are some TVs on the walls and TVs on the individual machines as well. However, the options on the machines are very limited. For example, for a long time they only had FOX news as an option, along with the E station and ESPN. But since the guy who runs the gym lives for football, he has ESPN tuned to some kind of football-only station most of the year. Don't expect to watch a baseball game you were watching at home. Even if it's the final game of the Word Series, you won't be able to watch it in that gym, and they won't change the channels to accomodate you. If you like tennis, forget that too. The finals of Wimbledom? Better stay home to watch.\n\nThe general idea is that this place is all about the people who run it. The women are neighborhood women who will bit your head off if you even think to complain. \n\nThere's also the issue of membership. They make it very hard to leave the gym, even if you've been a loyal member for many years. I've heard some horror stories from people who've tried to leave and found themselves charged and then subjected to claims from collection agencies. \n\nSo be careful. This place is not about you. It's about them.

I find Elite Fitness Studio to be clean, the staff to be kind, courteous and helpful. The location allows the studio to be a little hideaway in Carroll Gardens/Red Hook. I also think the cardio machines are a good quality and well suited for people with injuries and special needs. I have knee and back injuries from running outside on the pavement for some years. My children love the karate and yoga classes and the childcare is helpful and free with a family membership. The prices are economical and the staff and fellow members make this fitness center a great experience. So do your home work and get all your info from other gyms around and then make Elite Fitness Studio your last stop because you won?t be disappointed

Pros: Friendly staff - Great for Kids, Lots of help if you need it

Cons: Only one studio.

If I could give Elite 0 stars I would. When my wife first inquired about this gym, she was told that new equipment was being installed and that a sauna would be part of that upgrade. It was not. Despite the fact that all of the cardio equipment is located in a windowless, unventilated basement, we joined anyway because the location is very convenient for us. A few months into our memberships, the management ceased providing towel service. Instead they gave all the members one small towel with the name of the gym printed on it and told us it was our responsibility to bring the towel for workouts and launder it ourselves. The first time we laundered one of these towels, the ink used to print the name of the gym on the towel bled into all of our whites, turning our t-shirts and towels permanently pink. When we complained, the staff member we spoke with did not apologize and only said, ""That didn't happen when I washed mine."" When our one-year contract ran out, we informed the gym that we did not wish to renew. Despite verbally telling them this and sending email telling them this, they demanded that we come in and sign a ""non-renewal"" form. When I told them that legally we were not required to do anything special in order to NOT enter a new contract with them, they told us that if we did not come in, they would continue to charge us! True to their word this one time, they did continue to charge us and we asked our credit card provider to stop payment. The gym then reported us to a collection agency called ABC that has continued to harass us for months despite the fact that we have repeatedly complained to Elite and have signed their unnecessary ""non-renewal form."" We will be contacting the state AG's office if this harassment does not cease soon. AVOID THIS GYM. They are liars and frauds.

Pros: Convenient location for Columbia St. Waterfront District

Cons: unventilated dank cardio area, staff lies, fraudulent bill

Staff is wonderful. Pilates reformer workouts are amazing - Ann is the best! David will kick your butt into shape with a smile and you will love every minute! Linda always has a smile and is always there to answer any question you have about the machines.

Non-intimidating environment....great for novices and great weight loss program. Large range of cardio equipment and corresponding classes. Great child care services as well....I can leave my kids and feel secure and comfortable working out while they take tumble-n-roll classes.

As a PS 58 mom I find Elite Fitness Studio a welcomed fix for all of my daily stress. Clean, comfortable, relaxing experience with lots of direction and motivation. From my experiences here I feel compelled to let everyone know that if you are overweight, new to exercise or afraid to get started you will not feel out of place. David also works closely with our neighborhood schools to promote health and wellness to our youth. The studio also offers childcare so mom?s can get a little time in when we would otherwise skip the gym. In closing I am in total support of what is going on at this studio and I welcome all of Carroll Gardens families to come and support a studio that gives back to our community. \r\n\r\nThank you Emma Colageo\r\n\r\n

I've been around the gym circuit for a while and have tried countless gyms in a variety of neighborhoods and price points. And Elite Fitness Studio definitely takes the cake!! It totally lives up to its name.

Elite Fitness Studio is an awesome gym! I go mainly for the cardio and there is an abundance of treadmills and elipticals, etc. This is the cleanest gym I've ever been in, the staff is always making sure things are tidy and there are plenty of spray bottles and towels around for wiping down your machine. On top of being a super clean gym the staff here is also extremely friendly and respectful. I would highly recommend this gym :)

I have been a member for over 6 years and not one complaint! The gym is never crowded and sometimes it feel like your own personal gym, its great. Super clean and attractive and the machines are all top-notch with tv screens etc... And there are always new classes being developed and if you have an idea for a certain type of class they don't yet offer - just say so, they will try to get it started! \nThe staff is great, as are the trainers. I have worked with several different trainers over the course of my membership and they were all great. I am now working with David and he does anything and everything in his power to help me out on my weight-loss journey... Having someone who really cares makes a huge difference.

The ET&F team, led by David Cascia, is wholly focused on making the experience one that not only produces results but makes it fun and collaborative. This is a gym where people of all ages - and I mean youngsters to (no kidding) 80-somethings can be found pressing weights in a friendly atmosphere.\n\nDavid has well over a decade of fitness and training experience, and it shows. He selects cutting-edge equipment and constantly works to bring in new options, and the best results I ever had from a fitness trainer were when I lived in Carroll Gardens and belonged to Elite Training & Fitness.\n\nI still make the trek back there every year or so just to say hi to the guys; it's that kind of place.

I've been to a good handful of gyms over the years and never have I felt more satisfied than at Elite Fitness Studio.\n\nThe facilities offer everything you could ask for in a spotlessly clean environment. David and his staff are friendly, knowledgeable and always available to their customers.\n\nEven more unusual is the true appreciation that this gym's members have for David and his facility. You'll never run into a rude, inconsiderate soul in this place. It's obvious that something is really going right at Elite Fitness Studio, and it comes through in the very apparent relationship of mutual respect between the gym and its members.

This is the only Studio in town that you don't dread to go and work-out in. It is so clean and fresh all the time. It is a little getaway from the rest of the studio's and gym's in the area. This studio has a wonderful staff and amazing coaches. There are lots of places to exercise in Carrol Gardens but none of them have all the bases covered like this one does. It is few and far between when you can get such great quality in so many area's, yoga, pilates,cardio,classes,there are even children's classes and childcare. Columbia street has come a long way.

It can get very hot and very stuffy, making it difficult to exercise. This is especially a problem when there are men working out. The smell of sweat can be nauseating. A window or some ventilation system would be helpful. \r\n2. There are many patrons that do not wipe down the equipment. Please be sure to wipe both before and after to ensure that you don't end up with a disease or pass something on to others\r\n3. I would like a wider variety of classes. \r\n\r\nOverall, I would recommend this gym to others

What can I say I love having Elite on Columbia and Union. This is were the quality is when it comes to health and wellness. This studio has everything you need. Not just Pilates not just Cardio not just Yoga not just Kids classes, it?s all right here. Professional staff that you won?t find anywhere else I promise you. Great child programming and childcare. Did I mention super clean, the studio has been open for 4 years and it looks like it just opened last week.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

Pros: Your one of the family not a SS# or bar code #

Just read all the reviews there is not one negative word. Try to find another place in Carroll Gardens with that track record, people only write reviews if the establishment they are writing about is fabulous they will not write anything if the place is bad unless it?s really bad. Lots of value and people who care everyone knows your name. None of the Big Gym nonsense. Low key just what us woman love O and there is childcare. Did I mention how good the instructors are Anne, Linda, Josie the list goes on.

Pros: Thumbs up across the board

I have been going to Elite Fitness Studio on Columbia & Union St for over 3 years now and I Love it. My whole family comes here and there is something for us all. David Cascia is a Great owner who cares for his members. He is willing to work with our special needs to insure our wellbeing. We have all been to other gyms/studios but i have never felt the warmth & family atmosphere that we all get here with this staff. People who know David have been loyal to his work the rest of you should come & find out why.

Pros: Great People, No teenagers, Good for people with weight problems.

.

Everyone who has an overweight loved one needs to see how this studio can help. You will not feel lost here, this is the right place for people who need help and dont know where to go. Woman & children will be most comfortable at this studio. The coaches are kind and understanding, not trying to hurt you. I think Elite has just what the health and wellness gods ordered for carroll gardens / red hook. (Childcare & Kiddie Classes)

Pros: Great place to learn,

.

This studio is just what we over weight and out of shape people need. The staff is ready to help at any time. I have not seen an exercise facility where you can go and not feel out of place. There is a positive energy that helps you get motivated. They offer weight management consulting and all kinds of individual programs to help you make improvements in your level of health and well being. They start young offering classes for the children and end with a large senior population. There are NO teenagers running around and there are no undesirable people to deal with.

Pros: They care about there members

.

As an overweight female, I feel extremely comfortable at this studio. The staff is knowledgeable, supportive and always available to answer questions. My fellow members are friendly and polite. I especially like that there are no ?muscle heads? grunting and hogging the machines. The cardio room is awesome. Each machine is linked to TV and Satellite Radio. They offer a wide range of classes like Pilates Mat and Reformer classes, Yoga and Urban Rebounding. The entire studio, from the machines to the bathrooms, is impeccably clean. I also think it?s really accommodating that they offer childcare and exercise classes for children.

Columbia street has a bunch of little studio's and places to take yoga and pilates classes. None of them come close to Elite Fitness Studio. If you are just a run of the mill person who just wants to say that they exercise go some where else. If you want to learn how to make your life better thru exercise this is the place. They will teach you and help you with the many problems that us everyday people have to deal with when it comes to changing our eating and over all health. This studio changes peoples lives. PS Emily is the best of the best ask around!!!!!!!!!!!!

A much needed addition to red hook/carroll gardens. There are only good things to say about what goes on at this facility. The staff is by far the best around and I have been around. This studio is a unique place with a unique concept. I am glad to be a part of the E.F.S. experience.

The trainers will take special care of you to help you work out during your pregnancy, and there is an on-site child care facility once the baby is 4 months. All child care workers are certified in infant and child CPR. No steroid musle-heads here, this is where the rest of us work out. The staff is very helpful in giving you great exercises to help on areas you may have injured and/or need special care. I am now addicted to the Pilates Reformer (plenty of Reformers always available). If Pilates is for you they have it all.

First of all, it's great to be able to take the kids to take a karate or fit play class and use that time to take a walk on the treadmill. It gives me comfort to know that their childcare staff have a CPR certification for children/infant. No other studio or gym in the area, that I inquired, has qualified staff to watch the kids. The equipment is well maintained, the facility is always sanitized, and the environment is not intimidating for women. You should take advantage of their 14 trial membership and take classes to get to know the instructors. This was also helpful to me since I enjoy group classes! What more can I say, I'm very pleased.\r\n

I've been a member for several years. The staff is very friendly and they know me by name. I particularly enjoy the pilates one-on-one sessions on the reformer and the mat classes. Though I often use the weights, this is the first gym where I feel comfortable and not intimidated by others. It's a great place for women and they even have classes for children. Great neighborhood place to work out!

David Cascia has done an incredible job of creating a community gym that has everything the neighborhood needs. The space is meticulously clean and well maintained. All of the equipment is new and the classes are wonderful. I would give this GYM an A++!! It doesn't have any weakness that I can think of.... and it's much cleaner than the other nasty gyms in the area - especially that one on Court and Union.\r\n
