A large fitness center with international locations has opened its doors along Northern Boulevard.

Powerhouse Gym opened on April 9 in a 10,000 square foot space at the Apple building, the eight-story building located at 30-30 Northern Blvd.

The gym offers a cardio and weights area with standard fitness equipment including treadmills, strength-training machines, stationary bicycles, weight plates, dumbbells, and bars, and elliptical machines.

The gym also has private group training programs, and a juice bar serving protein smoothies and health foods.

The Long Island City location, the fourth Powerhouse Gym in New York City, is open 24 hours a day.

The Powerhouse Gym brand has operated for nearly 45 years, and has locations in 39 states and 17 different country.

Alma Realty Corporation, the owners of the building, says the gym signed a 10-year lease with them, signaling Long Island City’s growing pull. News of the gym’s opening was first announced last summer.

“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,” Alma Realty said.
