Metro Fitness East is BORN!

Go Back

I am VERY excited to share this announcement today with BOTH our downtown Metro community AND our NEW Fayetteville Club community.
Many of you have heard that we were close to an agreement with the Landlords of the Former "Koinonia Athletic Club" or "Fitness Forum" or as most of us still refer "Track & Racket Club." 
Well, yesterday we made it final by signing a 5 year lease, this Tuesday December 15th, Metro Fitness EAST will officially take over operations at 6800 East Genesee St. Fayetteville NY! 

Fayetteville/East Members: We will be setting up memberships to begin on January 1st. You will be greeted, starting Tuesday in the lower lobby with instructions for setting up your membership with us. If you would like a few days to review our membership options you may continue to use the East Club after completing a general "guest" waiver. Our membership options will be available to you from Tuesday on for your review and consideration.

East Club Hours: For the remainder of December, (12/15 - 31) the general Club hours will be Monday - Friday 4:30am - 10pm, Saturday 7am - 8pm and Sunday 7am - 6pm.  We will be closed at Both Clubs on Christmas and New Years Day, and will post "limited" hours for Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. 

Downtown Club Members: If you live on the East side and would like the opportunity to use the East Club please email me, 

East Club Members: We will not be offering child care for the month of December but we are looking into a limited offering starting January 2nd from  9am - noon, Monday - Friday. We are working out the details with our insurance company as this is a NEW offering for us.  

East Club Renovations: I'm not going to list the entire scope of repairs and facility improvements but if you have specific concerns you may email me. I will tell you the list is extensive and the improvements will be noticed! I will also tell you that we will be building a NEW reception/member service station in the lower lobby as you come in and we are converting the upstairs reception area into our personal trainer station. Here is where you will go if you'd like to discuss our personal training services or ask questions about your training program & goals. This is also where you will find information about ALL of our programs, like Metro42, a 6 week body transformation class, pilates reformer training, seminars, pack training, member socials, any program or event will be posted here. 

Group Fitness Classes: Our group fitness manager has been communicating with the instructors at the Fayetteville Club. We will have a class schedule set by Tuesday for December and are working on January's schedule. 

Website/Facebook: We will be updating our Website & Facebook page next week to add information about our East location. This is also where you will find our most recent group fitness schedule, trainer & instructor profiles, club announcements etc..So if you are on Facebook, please find Metro and like us. Copy and paste this like to our page,

FREE Class Pass: If you noticed in the header it says, FREE CLASS PASS," These are available to both clubs and on our website for you to forward to your friends. You may also ask for one at either Club. The group fitness offerings will be a little different at the two clubs and we want your help to promote them. If you have friends who have left the Fayetteville Club over the past couple years this is a great way to reintroduce them to us. We are also running a Holiday punch card SPECIAL, 10 classes for $10! The only catch is the card expires mid January. The offer is limited to purchasing one for yourself and one for a friend. Details at both Clubs. 

East Communication: We will not have an official phone number until Tuesday afternoon as Verizon is scheduled to install phone, Internet, and cable. So if you need anything before, please contact us at our downtown club or email me. 

Equipment Repairs: Monday all torn pads on the gym equipment are being reupholstered, later in the week our friends at Syracuse Fitness will begin to service and repair all of the cardio equipment. The following week all spin bikes are scheduled to be serviced. 

Please be patient with us as all of these facility and equipment repairs are made and we build and train our team.
