Crossfit Gantry Expands Gym Hours in Effort to Help Locals Lose Winter Weight

March 26, 2017 Sponsored Content

The snow may not have melted yet, but a gym in Long Island City wants to help locals melt off some weight to prepare for warmer weather.

Crossfit Gantry, located at 10-19 46th Rd, has taken it upon itself to expand its “Open Floor” hours from Monday to Friday to be available from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, in addition to its regular 4:00 to 5:00 pm time slot.

The “Open Floor” hours allow for members of the CrossFit gym to attend non-coached sessions to use the facility and its equipment at their own leisure.

“Come in and do the programmed WOD (Workout of the Day), make up a WOD you missed during the week, or do your own thing,” reads a Facebook post on the CrossFit Gantry page.

The change is an effort to allow its members to get more hours at the facility, so that they have more opportunities to improve their physique in anticipation of upcoming spring and summer weather.

“It seems like winter is never going to end, but it will, and we want both our new and seasoned members to be able to use our facility as much as possible so they can be ready for trips to the beach again,” said gym owner Jay Hachadoorian.

The gym stocks over 10,000 pounds of bumper plates, dumbbells and kettlebells, as well as three weightlifting platforms.

“We have a 44-foot free standing rogue infinity rig, which is the longest in the New York area, along with 10 squat stations and 26 pull up stations,” Hachadoorian said.

The facility also features six climbing ropes from their 18-foot high ceiling, and has over 2,000 square feet of open floor space.

Those that are interested in membership are encouraged to sign up for Gantry Prep, an introductory 6 week membership designed to teach all the fundamentals of CrossFit and develop a consistent routine before they commit to a monthly membership.

“We are confident that those who have never tried CrossFit or have always been interested will be in good hands,” said Hachadoorian, sharing that CrossFit Gantry is the only CrossFit gym in New York City to have four “Level 3 Certified Trainers” on their coaching staff.

Beginning on April 4th, a new Mobility WOD class will also be available for members to try, and will focus on posture, breathing and maintaining an active range of motion throughout the most difficult workouts. It also teaches members how to prevent and recover from pain and injuries from improper techniques.

It would be wonderful if one of the gyms in the neighborhood offered Mommy & Me cross-fit training classes! I’m sure lots of moms like me would love to meet up and have a workout with our kids too. (Not that we need it!!)

Crossfit is big time – a lot of rah-rah encouragement from your peers. Not really my thing but seems to be effective for a lot of people. Probably 4 or 5 crossfits just in LIC/Astoria.
