As a person who goes to the gym every day, I have to say the gym is pretty good. True it is rather pricey and perhaps there are other gyms you can go to but you will usually have to deal with a crowd. I usually go to the one located at 57th Street and no matter how crowded you will always find equipment to work out in. In terms of canceling, actually several years ago I developed a bulging disc and I had joined for 15 months and was given my moneys back. Would recommend it over NY Sports Club or 24 hour Fitness. The only one I would say that has better amenities is Equinox.

I love this club. I belonged to the new club on Park Ave. It was beautiful and the classes were awesome. I had to move unexpectedly and they cancelled my membership for me with no problems. A friend of mine is still a member and she loves it as well. She had a pregnancy issue and the corporate office couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Thumbs up NYHRC! I've read these other reviews and I don't see it. It wasn't my experience or anyone I know. Probably competitors.

DO NOT JOIN HERE! Once they have you, they treat you horribly!!!! Once you realize that, it is VERY VERY VERY difficult to cancel membership. Highly advise against this club.

I was in NY for the summer and joined because of a recommendation from a friend. I was more or less satisfied with the facilities and the helpfulness of the staff. I joined in early June with the knowledge that I would be leaving the city at the end of August. I let the sales person know this and he simply responded, "just cancel a month ahead of time". The last week of July I inquired about cancelling and was told I had to mail in my request and could not do it in person. After reviewing the cancellation sheet, I was alarmed to discover that you not only had to cancel a month ahead of time but had to cancel a month ahead of your last billing date, which in my case had already passed. When I emailed their corporate office about the fact that I wouldn't even be in the city to use this membership I was basically told to jump in a lake. When I explained that the sales person hadn't mentioned their policy, the gentleman I was emailing with told me they "expected all our members to thoroughly read their contract", despite the fact their sales person had lead me to believe that it wasn;t necessary. So NYHRC will nickel and dime you for a few bucks, not caring that they might lose your business forever.

23rd street is my gym. There is alot of great staff, the place is clean and anyone who pays attention will recognize some sincere effort toward clientele; EXCEPTING Hillary and Brian who unfortunately seem confident of some superiority on their part and prove themselves both chilly and useless. Attitude both cliquish, isolated, and ultimately cowardly that stinks of inexperienced youthful arrogance. Their personal punk rocking and heartless urban rap stereo system blasting at 6 A.M and get your heaping plate of attitude if you mention that you cannot even hear your bloody iPod. These two suck bigtime. Typifying the low end of the worst of NYC...arrogant stupid youth. And TRY to find an avenue on the corporate level to register a complaint!

I've been a member for 3 summers. LOVED going to the 57th street pool, until yesterday (broken glass incident).
I think they have been very fair in their pricing structure, and the little perks like the yacht rides are great.
Yes, you have to give them a certified letter in advance when you quit, but that's not a big deal. They just stop billing you until you want to rejoin. No big thing.
I plan on joining every summer, I think it's wonderful to play in their sunny pool, then go for a ride on their yacht. Yes,
there's a cover charge for the yacht, but it's reasonable and there is a free buffet (with FABULOUS desserts!)

Pros: Very clean, friendly staff

Cons: At times it can be a little crowded

.

I can't speak to the price as I get a special rate here from my employer. I find the staff very friendly, particularly the locker room attendants. The equipment at the Whitehall location is very good, but perhaps not as good as some of the other locations. I enjoy the pool, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room; great ways to relax after a workout. Overall, my only complaint is that they don't have an outpost in Brooklyn where I live.

My company entered into a contract with NYHRC after the Crunch next door went bankrupt and shut down (without ever ONCE alerting any of us that it was happening, btw). Overall, I don't really like it.

Whitehall: This is the gym that is closest to my office, and it's not that close. The locker rooms are crowded and there are maybe three benches in there? Four? Four bathrooms - always clean. The woman in charge, Soco, is on top of things. Always really friendly and hands you a towel, too! The showers are creepy, and the doors on many are SEE THROUGH. When did that become okay? That weirds me out and I prefer to shower at home. The managers seem really douchey. I went to the gym with a coworker once and when we were outside, he said one of the managers was staring at my backside the whole time. Classy. At 6pm it is usually pretty crowded on the cardio floor, but I've never had to wait very long to get an elliptical. The bikes there don't seem to all function properly. The people who seem to frequent this place are over 30 and higher class, which makes me feel uncomfortable being a 25-yr old indie chick from Bushwick. The music HORRIBLE. 99% of the time the music deters me from working out and make me want to quit my exercise and go home. It's horrible. Completely old boring and unmotivational. The whole place is really bland. I'm used to Crunch, with colors and LIFE AND YOUTH. I've only taken a Pilates class here at lunch time. When the 60 yr old guys were doing better than I was, I stopped coming. The studio was too full to be comfortable anyway. The weight room upstairs is not usually crowded and I've had to wait for a machine maybe once, and it was the leg press. Not a lot of room to stand around and do weighted bars though. The area on the cardio floor for floor workouts is a great size; lots of space and plenty of mats. Personal trainers are SO VERY PUSHY. I have been offered free sessions in the hopes that I would sign up. They were great sessions! I haven't signed up... yet. I would when I have cash, though. I hurt for a week the last time. The pool is four lanes with a little practice area on the side and isn't usually that crowded after work. You might have to wait a bit sometimes, but I've never been put off. I sit in the hot tub for a few minutes and warm up. The swimmers are mostly regulars. Overall the gym is okay, but I definitely miss Crunch and all of their super fun classes!

23rd St: I've only used the pool here and it was crazy crowded. The lifeguard has a time limit set for you and will tell you when you need to vamoose. Very stressful. I didn't enjoy it. The gym is big though, and you can get lost in the locker room. They run out of towels a lot, it seems. The bathrooms are crazy modern, with automatic lights in each glass-doored stall. Showers, not modern at all. It was pretty crowded overall.

21st St: I only come here for the Cuerpaso class on Wednesdays - this is the best class! So much fun, latin-dance and soccer-inspired workout that really burns. The locker rooms here are small and lovely - I wish I had their showers at home! Very clean. They seem to take pride in this one. Not very crowded. My class had about 12 people. Only one guy.

The 56th Street location stole my bicycle lock. I returned from Labor Day weekend to find a sign posted over the rack outside saying they will clip locks left overnight, and my lock was gone, leaving me standing there foolishly in the middle of midtown with a bicycle and no lock.

I have been a member of the NYHRC, and have been leaving my lock there overnight, since 2004. I commute to midtown by bicycle, and shower at the gym.

When I reported the theft, the manager on duty simply shrugged and said, "We are not responsible for locks." It is one thing to disavow responsibility for locks; it is another thing to clip them.

I am now canceling my membership. Be forewarned: it is an arduous and expensive process. You cannot cancel in person; you must send a registered, certified letter to headquarters 30 days before your next "collection date." The $350 annual locker fee I just paid is non-refundable.

Between the non-refundable locker fee, the lost bike lock, and the useless extra month, I'm out more than $600 to the New York Health and Racquet Club. I cannot recommend joining them. There are plenty of other gyms in the area.

I agree with everyone who says this place is a total scam. Good luck trying to quit this gym. They make it virtually impossible. They make you pick up a form at a club and then you have to send it certified mail and then they still charge you. Every other decent club lets you quit with no problems. The owners of this pit are greedy and have no morals or scruples. Instead of running good gyms, they just try to milk any sucker they can find. Also the personal trainers are relentless in pushing personal training sessions. Save yourself a lot of aggravation and join New York Sports, Crunch or Equinox where quitting is not ridiculously impossible,

I agree with prior reviewer, they charge you over $1,200.00 for what you can get at Crunch for much less, the elevator is out so you have to walk up 5 flights of stairs they had a ladies room on the 5th floor that was removed so now you have to share with men, they always have sports on the televisions when they know that a lot of the members want to watch the news. Bathrooms are dirty and they can never keep anyone decent at front desk. Totally disgusted not renewing my membership. Stay away!

Please learn from my mistakes and read the fine print carefully. Even "pay as you go" members are billed monthly until they go to the gym, fill out a cancellation form and MAIL it back! You can't even hand it to them, and this all has to be done within 30 days of cancellation or you will be billed again. So by the time i found out that I was billed for february, it was impossible for me to cancel in time for March! The consultant even looked me in the eyes and told me that my credit card would not be charged anything! Buyer beware!

Before joining, read the ripoff report below. It describes the patently abusive cancellation policy at NYHRC, which forces members (even "No Commitment" month-to-month members) to pick up a cancellation form in person and send a REGISTERED LETTER 30 days ahead of their next billing period in order to cancel.

In my opinion this gym is really great for the price and the amenities. I have to say that I'm pretty surprised that anyone would say that this gym isn't clean, this gym is clean, the showers are always working, and there's always machines available no matter how crowded it gets. It very seldom gets crowded anyway, but again this gym has a lot to offer. I would recommend indefinitely.

Here's my opinion:

The General Manager at the Whitehall location is arrogant, and every time I've approached him about a concern, he's been rude and obnxious.

Be careful of the rotund salesman who sits in the first office: he's very slick and a smooth talker. Question him strongly about what you're signing up for: he doesn't like people signing up month to month-- (I guess his commission is a lot lower), so make sure you understand that anything else constitutes a long-term contract. Right now I'm looking into whether or not he pulled a bait and switch when I signed up.

Facilities are dirty and crowded, and good luck trying to get help on the floor or at the front desk. Trainers seem more interested in hooking up with someone than helping people get in shape.

I regret strongly signing up for this gym: You can find better facilities and customer service elsewhere.

The gym is not always that clean and the locker rooms are getting a little run down. It is super, crazy crowded after work. It is a mental work out trying to find a locker or a shower that works. The pool at 23rd St is shorter than advertised. The front desk staff at the Chelsea location is nice but the managers are power tripping master of the universe wannabes. Not worth it.

This gym is very coveniently located next to my work and they have really good facilities. I usually play racquet ball here a few times a week and always get the allotted time slot that signed up for. The only thing I dislike is the super expensive membership fees they charge. I'd only go here if your company was sponsoring part of the fees.

New York health and racquet club is an upscale place to workout if you can afford their pricey membership fees. Though they have some great workout equipment and classes, not to mention the obvious racquet ball courts, you really can find what they have at any other gym in the city, but at a better price.
