UNION SQUARE — A CrossFit gym will launch in September in the basement of Union Square's new Reebok store, the store announced.
Reebok FitHub opened on the ground floor of 1 Union Square West last week, but the gym — with 5,000 square feet of workout space, locker rooms and 10 showers — is still in the works, said Jay Adams, the gym’s general manager.
“CrossFit gyms are pretty much bare bones,” Adams said. “The build-out of the gym is not that much. There’s basically just the flooring and racks for the weights."
The gym is already taking online registrations for its CrossFit classes — a workout that combines aerobic exercise, gymnastics and Olympic weightlifting. A three-month membership costs $250 per month, a 6-month membership is $225 per month, and an entire year runs $200 per month.
Members of the gym will receive 15 percent off purchases in the Reebok store upstairs, Adams said.
"The guys [at Rhinoco] operate the most successful gyms in the world," Adams said. "The head of training for Union Square [Annie Thorisdottir] is a two-time CrossFit champion. You're not going to find that anywhere else in the city."
