Bayside residents will soon have a new place where they can achieve their fitness goals.

Orangetheory Fitness is preparing to open up a new location at 41-19 Bell Blvd. The site was previously home to Lucille Roberts, an all-women’s gym that closed in May 2016.

The fitness center is projected to open up in September or October of this year, according to operations manager Garrett Ball. Classes will be offered from 5 a.m. until 9 p.m. and led by skilled coaches.

Orangetheory Fitness is known for offering intensive 60-minute workout sessions that combine cardiovascular and strength training. The chain’s fitness technique, known as the “Orange Effect,” incorporates endurance, strength and power training on equipment including treadmills, rowing machines and free weights.



Prior to its opening, Orangetheory will offer special membership rates. Those interested in learning more can call 347-382-9099 for more information.

In addition to the closing of Lucille Roberts, Bayside residents found themselves at another loss after the Bell Plaza Sports Club, located at 45-58 Bell Blvd., shuttered its doors in June 2016. The powerhouse provided three floors of fitness with more than 40 group activity classes per week for three decades.

Orangetheory Fitness is also slated to open up a location in Astoria at 31-57 31st St., according to its website.
