Aug. 3, 2017 By Jason Cohen

Powerhouse Gym, which has been in the health club industry for more than 40 years, is coming to Long Island City.

The gym will be opening at 30-30 Northern Boulevard, having signed a 10-year, 10,500-square-foot lease.

Powerhouse Gym is an international company that operates in 39 states and 17 countries. The new club will be its first in Long Island City and fourth in New York City.

According to its website, “it is not uncommon to see an A-list celebrity training at Powerhouse Gym, including such stars as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Cameron Diaz, John Travolta, Jerome “The Bus” Bettis, Alex Rodriguez, Mike Tyson and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.”

“Powerhouse Gym choosing to sign a 10-year lease in Long Island City demonstrates a strong commitment to the community and is a great sign for the neighborhood’s future,” said Peter Kosteas of Alma Realty, which owns the building.

“The demand for this type of retail shows that Long Island City is attracting a healthy living residential population to go along with the growing office space market.”

“Not uncommon to see A-list celebrities”….wonder if this is where Franz and Hanz workout?


Do any of those “A: List celebrities mentioned live in LIC ? I think not. They obviously could afford the million dollar condos though. Maybe J-Lo will buy a place in LIC. (lol)
