I just came back from a JUMPIN Zumba class at the NEW Lucille Roberts location (55-05 Myrtle Ave. btw St. Nicholas and Madison St.) The upgraded facility is a huge incentive to accomplish my 2014 get buff and fit into my cute jean skirt again… challenge!
The space looks modern and clean and the layout is great. You walk up one flight of stairs to the second level for entry and check-in. The treadmills, bikes and elliptical machines are the first thing you see. You can get your cardio workout in and people-watch – the machines overlook Myrtle Ave! The free weights and weight machines are just behind the cardio area. Bright white walls and mirrors reflect the light everywhere, making the space feel quite big. Large TV screens line the perimeter of the whole space.
The third floor is my favorite. This is the aerobics area where you can take Zumba, Body Box BootCamp, Butt and Gut class (ha!) and many others. The workout floor is spacious and it’s constructed with rubber fitness flooring material. No more carpet! Whoo-hoo! They must have a new music system too, because the Zumba tracks sounded better than I remember.
The vibe at the new Lucille Roberts is energetic all around! If you’re interested in signing up, you can check it out by picking up free guest passes at the main desk. Hope to see you there!
