On Dec. 12, the franchise opened a new facility at 32-27 Steinway Street in Astoria. Manager Juan Navarrete said since opening, membership has been booming.
“We like to personalize our service,” he said. “It’s not just members coming in and out.”
To that end, Blink Fitness also offers personal trainers.
“Our personal training program has been absolutely amazing,” Navarrete said.
Navarrete said there are about 10 gyms in a 10-block radius they are competing with, but the staff works hard and is dedicated to providing the best service possible for its members.
Acharf Jellal, 19, joined the gym a month ago and said it has been a tremendous experience so far. His friend, Mohammed Moustafa, 18, became a member a week ago and has been there every day.
“They have all the equipment I really need,” Moustafa said.
