Elite Gym (782 Coney Island Avenue between Cortelyou and Dorchester Roads), which neighbor Lisa Witler first alerted us to back in February, has finally opened its doors to the public. The space is quite large, so you may never have to worry about getting a spot on one of their ellipticals, benches, or weight training machines.

They’ve got a huge selection of Olympic weights for the experienced athlete or nervous newbie…

There are also plenty of fluffy white towels, lockers for storage, and beverages to keep you hydrated. The gym is open 24 hours, and there is a personal trainer available. Current rates for membership are as follows:

  • $29.99 plus tax per month
  • $149.99 plus tax for six months
  • $299.99 plus tax for 12 months

Those who sign up will receive a free three day trial, and the first 50 members will get a free Elite Gym t-shirt–so if you’ve been looking for a place to feel the burn and our initial post piqued your interest, be sure to stop in or call 347-987-7815 to learn more.

  1. I think there will be. They’re different spaces that cater to slightly different goals (Elite has more weights, DF has more space). And they’re still the only two gyms in the immediate area.
