    The Open House will allow attendees to get a tour of the multiple upgrades completed this summer in the 14th Street Y fitness facilities. In 2016, the fitness center was completely renovated and now features a full circuit of Cybex equipment, new floors, and freshly painted walls. This summer, additional upgrades included new saunas in both locker rooms and a major renovation to the shower areas. As always at the end of summer, yearly maintenance is performed on both the pool and the basketball gymnasium to ensure that everything is in top shape for members. Through partnerships with other community centers in downtown Manhattan, the 14th Street Y also provides alternative locations for their members to use while they close their facilities for renovations in an effort to provide work out options so members can continue their routines. The fitness center offers a complete Cybex Prestige training circuit, a full array of Cardio equipment, as well as a fully stocked free weight section that includes a Max Rack and a Power Cage.

    “We are always looking for new opportunities to improve our facilities for our growing community and this past summer was no different. Refreshing the 14th Street Y with upgrades, including brand new saunas, helps to provide a positive and full experience for our members,” said Jordan Brackett, Associate Executive Director, Operations and Business Strategy, 14th Street Y. “We are now fully up and running and excited to share the beautiful renovations with our community.”

    “Our focus has been to enhance the member experience in all areas of the 14th Street Y and we will continue to make enhancements throughout the months and years ahead. We are a community where everyone is welcome and we want to provide a warm and comfortable environment for all our guests to enjoy now and always” said Shira Koch Epstein, Executive Director, 14th Street Y.
