Want to work out at a good gym in New York City but don't know where to go? For those who don't have a gym membership that works in the Big Apple, a new service called Fit Daypass sells one-day passes to New York City gyms starting at $9.95 a day.
The deal: You won't find big-name chains on the Fit Daypass roster, but you will find a selection of a dozen good gyms in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Many of the better sites cost more than the rock-bottom $9.95 pass. Some of the picks:
--$9.95 pass to work out at Otom Gym in Brooklyn, which is spacious and open until midnight.
--$24.95 pass at the U.S. Athletic Training Center, a fitness and a sports physical therapy facility with 8,500 square feet of weights and machines.
--$34.95 pass to the Sports Center at Chelsea Piers, which Fitness magazine picked as one of the best U.S. gyms. A boxing ring, volleyball court, rock-climbing wall, basketball courts and swimming pool are what's inside -- and might be a nice addition to your vacation.
When: The deal is good indefinitely.
Details: The convenience of buying a day pass allows you to use some of the city's top gyms without having to be a member or listen to a membership pitch. Passes are sold on the company's website, which includes photographs, a map showing where the gyms are, and what workout options are available at each site.
For those who are serious about keeping fit while they're on the road, this is a nice way to change up the scenery and the workout.
