This is a fantastic gym. I joined recently and the equipment is new and there are a LOT of weight machines AND free weights AND Cardio Machines. The staff is courteous and helpful. There are many classes like Zumba, Pilates, Yoga, Spinning and more AND they are free with the membership! They also have BOXING classes! I got a trainer that helped me lose weight and since he's a proffesional boxer, I am also learing to box from a pro!! I am thankful I did not spend a lot more at other gyms that are over-crowded and over-priced.

Gym isn't in good condition, equipment is old, seen drips with buckets, it's cheap so I guess if you can't afford anything else it will work.

Staff are pushy, but no rude. Kept pestering my girlfriend and her friends to buy personal training sessions, EVERY TIME they went.

But the worst thing is, when I moved and tried to cancel my membership they had ridiculous procedure to cancel membership. I did what they asked and they are still charging me 4 months later. The guy that handles the cancellation is never there, always excuses and no one there. Still trying to cancel it via my bank. HORRIBLE situation.

Reading some of the reviews, I had to add my two cents... I'm a woman, and I've never had any problems at Synergy (I joined 4 months ago). Not only have I not been pressured by a single personal trainer, I haven't gotten any phone calls and I haven't been leered at or felt sexually harassed by any of the members, ever. At first I was worried, because my boyfriend joined before me and, going with him, I knew it was a male dominated gym. There was no reason to worry, because I've never had a single problem. No one has ever bothered me about getting off a cardio machine, or been annoyed when I do abs on a weighlifting bench (which I do at least 2-3 times a week).

Besides that, it has all the machines I need and apparently it's getting newer machines some time soon. It has a bunch of classes (although it would be nice if there were some in the early morning), lots of weights, and a very relaxed atmosphere. I just wasn't going to continue spending $80/month at NYSC when Synergy has everything I need for less than half the price.

Get one of the guest passes and try it for yourself before making a decision.

It is a decent gym that works best for those who want to just work out and get pumped up. It is not a classy gym but not bad either. The membership fee is almost $40, these guys appear to be cost leaders in their category. The employees and manager aren't rude just doing things in their own way, do not forget that tough workouts require an appropriate arrangement and culture, the music there really pushes you to work out. I see different people most of the times, it is an alright place if you have the street smart!

I AM a member of synergy for the last 3 years i am very happy here the staff is always friendly helpful the knowledgeable. I recently had a little girl so i was out for a while. I went back to the gym last month the gym look fantastic. The have all new machines all new cardio updated their spinning room with all new bikes and lighting. I was approached by one of their trainers Enrique so i decided to work with him since after the babe got a bit out of shape i already lost 10 pound feel way better than before and planning to continue with him for our next goal of getting back to 110 lbs (that is my collage weight) Enrique is doing a great job no wonder their trainers are always busy. I highly recommend this gym to anyone that wants to be healthy they are open 24 hours have towel service and their staff is always friendly and polite.

This gym is the best gym for the money in this neighborhood .Their equipment is new, their staff is friendly and they seem very knowledgeable. Open 24 hours and for $40 a month is definitely the best value in astoria.

this gym is perfect for the money. The staff is friendly always helpful and their trainers seem to be very knowledgeable and always busy. They have more than 50 classes a week from yoga pilates boxing belly dance and their instructors seem pretty helpful and friendly. I AM very happy at synergy and recommend this gym to everyone and especially to someone that want to save $$$ and still enjoy the benefits of exercise. Great value

the gym is nice they have all new equipment and the staff is friendly AND ALWAYS helpful. I am not quite sure what the other reviewers are experiencing but me and my girlfriend we have been members for two years at synergy and we are more than happy.they are open 24hours , Their instructors are great and their classes are better that nysc which i was a member before. Club fitness is closer to me and went to take a look at their club since they are closer. Club fitness is expensive and it does not worth double the money of synergy No wonder is always empty. Before you join any other gym make sure you look at synergy FITNESS.

I agree w/some of the criticisms -- staff is too pushy for renewals and it's a male-dominated gym. BUT, it's less than half the price of New York Sports club and they have all the equpiment you would ever need to work out, plus TVs so you can watch whatever you want while treadmilling.

I have been a member of Synergy since June of this year and was pleased with this gym since day one. It's clean, affordable, offers great classes with great instructors and the staff is friendly and down-to-earth. The location is also great. You feel comfortable at Synergy and that is just an added bonus.

As a former member of Equinox I was quite surprised at the quality of my local club in Astoria, Synergy Fitness. First of all Synergy was the only club I could find open last Christmas and after trying it out for the day I became a member. They have very good state of the art weight machines and a very extensive cardio area. Also it is 24 hours and you can always get on the machines. The classes which include spinning and boxing equal and sometimes exceed the quality of my previous club and they are free with membership I love the organic juicebar. The best part is that I lost 20 pounds working with a personal trainer and the training is much less than at Equinox and my results were actually much better. Paying more money does not guarantee you better results!

I joined Synergy when it opened and it has proved itself to be the best quality gym for the money in Astoria. I checked out Club Fitness down the street and when I asked for a discount because it is too expensive for me they told me that they would only charge me $1000 for the year. Well if that is a discount I'd rather stay at Synergy who has all new equipment, organic juicebar and is 24 hours and more than half the price. They also gave me the rest of the year free when I renewed this week. Synergy is very strict about people swiping in and the members are quality people of all ethnicities and I am proud of that. Millionaire Rock Star David Bowie is a Synergy member because he used to get harrased by people from a competing "name" club as well as castmembers of such TV shows as The Sopranos. Want to tell them that Synergy is unsuitable?

Synergy was the first fitness clubs to open in our neighborhood seven years ago and the only one that lasted. It's not a corporate atmosphere, just a bunch of regular guys with a sense of humor that are comitted to Fitness. If you want to pay a hundred dollars a month under contract or a thousand a year go somewhere else, But if you want real experienced trainers like Petros with hundreds of satisfied clients with results from weight loss to boxing expertise go to Synergy. Plus there is a new organic juice bar and the owners have made the place leak-proof and they did not have a drop of water during the last rainstorm that closed down The City subways. Ellopia Press had a recent article about Synergy called "Bringing Fitness to Astoria." It talks about about a diverse member group and large female presence, free yoga, boxing and other classes and a 30 day money back-guarantee which no other gym offers. The article is posted in the lobby. The new staff and the renovations are great so check it out again before you spend a lot on a new gym without the history or experience.

I like this gym, I like the equipment and the staff is nice, like the other reviewer said they are not rude people. But yes, they can be overly persistent. The thing I don't like, is how they (not all of them) assume that because you are coming to a gym, that as a guy, you automatically want to get big and muscular, and that as a girl, you want to get slim or look like one of those girls on the fitness magazines. Some guys want to have some muscle and not be a meathead like some members/trainers, some of them want to be able to walk right and know how to carry their weight and not be bulky. And maybe some girls don't want to be too thin, although, the majority of girls who come here do go for the classes and do want to lose weight. However, that's not all of the girls. And a true certified trainer should know that not everyone is meant to look like that anyway - some girls look sickly if they are totally slim. This gym is very nice all in all, if they just weren't so aggressive about that stuff, they'd be 100 x's better.

The gym is nice. They have the best value in the whole neighbourhood by far. The staff is friendly but at the same time very pushy when it come to personal trainning. All their trainers are always busy and it seems they are doing a good job.Their equipment is new and it seemd that they are always working for the best of the place. I used to be a member of this gym 5 years ago and when i decided to rejoin a gym i was really suprised when i went to take a look. They have builded a 2nd floor with all cardio they have open areas at the back for boxing ad sppinning it seems that they are doing great. I highly suggest everyone to take a look at this gym. Its cheap and they offer everything that any other big gym offers. GREAT DEAL

Since they renovated the gym and brought new equipment it is much better than before. All equipment are brand new and clean. The price is very reasonable compared to other gyms in the area, and often you can get good deals.

I joined this fitness club because its membership was available for 50% off at the time with coupon but other than the price I paid - there was nothing particularly special about this fitness club other than the fact that it was open 24 hours a day and they had free child care too, which is a alwyas plus for those who need it.

I was a member of this gym for years. Great service, accurate billing, and they renovated in 2005. The machines are new and someone is always available to assist you. The locker rooms have two showers and are always clean. This is the best 24 hour gym for good prices in the area. Forget about the "national chains" that want to charge $80 a month. Try this gym, it is also two blocks from a juice bar and health food store!

PROS: Good prices
CONS: Gets crowded after work
