Leading a healthier lifestyle seems to be the trend of the summer, and an Astoria business is confident that it will last.
Simply Fit Astoria has enjoyed almost six years of success and Simply Cycle Astoria has been up and running for three. Now the studios under the same owner will be merging and expanding into full 4,000-square-foot, brand-new studio.
The specific date of the grand opening has not been finalized yet, but it is expected to be around mid-September. The new and improved studio will be located at 37-20 Astoria Boulevard South, right next to the current location of Simply Fit Astoria.
The facility will house separate rooms for fitness and cycling, private rooms for group and personal training, as well as lockers, showers and more.
In addition, Simply Fit will be expanding its class schedule and updating its packages. The team will be adding more morning classes to accommodate those who are looking to work out before their day begins. The new packages will offer combo packs to provide an array of both fitness and cycling classes. Pricing for these will be revealed closer to the opening.
Once the opening date has been decided, there will be a grand opening party to celebrate the new studio. The party will offer free sample classes that will be open to the public. There will also be giveaways and live music, and guests can meet all of the Simply Fit instructors and staff.
Simply Fit Astoria was established in 2010 by owner Lisa Eskenazi. Beginning in a small, 1,200-square-foot studio, the team moved after a year due to consistently packed and sold-out classes. Simply Fit moved to its current 1,800-square-foot studio in 2011 to accommodate the growing demand and influx of new members. In 2013, Simply Cycle opened.
