‘F45 Training’ to Open New Hell Square Studio this Weekend
Posted on: May 2nd, 2018 at 5:00 am by Elie
It’s been five months since a posh new training gym began teasing Hell Square. Now, the Australia-based F45 Training is days from debuting at 145 Ludlow Street.
The forthcoming 4,000 square-foot workout space launches this weekend (May 5). This is the second such studio to open in the city, with another seven reportedly in the hopper for 2018.
However, the timing doesn’t seem too great for the global fitness brand, as Equinox is opening a massive 30,000 square-foot gym just up the block in the coming months.
Here’s more about the new location:
Designed by Sport Scientists and Elite Athletes, F45’s unique, team-based, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) consist of 45-minute workouts which include an array of interval stations and feature 31 distinct workout systems. F45’s HIIT training incorporates more than 3,500 fun, functional and efficient exercises, ensuring the highest level of variation for clients, meaning nobody ever does the same workout twice. Members also have access to F45’s latest device, the LionHeart Heart Rate Monitor, which includes cutting technology through which users can track their progress.
F45 Training’s Lower East Side studio is located at 145 Ludlow Street, offers a 4000 square foot facility including workout space, locker room area complete with showers, towels, and luxury products and an outdoor terrace.
Addition of a new commercial tenant could be construed as a watershed moment for this development. As previously reported, 145 Ludlow received its new lease on life in June 2013 when the architecture firm of David Howell purchased the mid-block property for $5.7 million. Its role as vacant lot (and Timeshare Backyard) expired when construction on the dark brick box began shortly thereafter.
Today is a pivotal day in the life of the proposed super-tall towers on the Lower East Side waterfront. The City Planning Commission is holding the final public hearing later this morning on the controversial application for the three new large-scale developments. Members of the public who attend will have a chance to speak (three […]
Much like its centenary sister on East Houston (i.e. Katz’s Deli), Russ & Daughters is expanding into Brooklyn. The famed appetizing business – founded on the Lower East Side in 1914 – is planting a major flag at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Taking up 14,000 square-feet of space in Building 77. It’ll include a production […]
Goa Taco is no longer operational. Indeed, both the Lower East Side lunch spot and the Greenwich Village annex are both closed for good. The original location at 79 Delancey Street is now shuttered with brown paper in the windows. “We decided it makes more sense to close the Delancey Street location after Smorgasburg ended […]
It was a case of shock and burn down at the Extell project site on Cherry Street. A construction worker was electrocuted early yesterday during a work accident 227 Cherry Street, the developer’s so-called affordable tower. The man reportedly sustained second-degree burns about the arms, neck, and head, but was conscious when paramedics arrived. He was later […]
SoHo’s newest office buildings are inching toward the finish line, more than two years after simultaneously breaking ground. Starting with the new 606 Broadway (aka 19 East Houston), it’s been the recipient of glass paneling the last several months. As you can see, most construction materials are removed from the proverbial doorstep, leaving behind a […]
When block associations don’t work together, the residents lose. That’s essentially the narrative behind the Jarmulowsky Bank Hotel and the approval of its liquor license last week. Dozens of residents attended the Community Board 3 SLA subcommittee meeting last Tuesday in opposition to the hotel’s food and beverage plans at 9 Orchard Street. Namely, to […]
The A. Turen Boutique shuttered its Stanton Street store last January after five years at the corner of Allen. This was expected, as tombstone leasing signage – courtesy of Icon Realty Management – has been hanging in the front windows of number 85 for over a year. The signage accompanied a torrent of online listings […]
Seems like a no-brainer question – remember when you could actually buy a pickle at the annual Lower East Side Pickle Festival? Back when the party spanned the single block of Orchard Street between Broome and Grand, in front of Guss’ Pickles. Ever since the business improvement district turned the yearly event into a trendy […]
While Pickle Day seduced the mainstream on Orchard Street yesterday afternoon (i.e. tourists), the mood was much less happy-go-lucky down in Two Bridges. Full sour, indeed. Dozens gathered in a show of solidarity for a so-called “final stand” against the addition of four more supertall towers along the Lower East Side waterfront. Timing of the […]
Mile End Deli on Bond Street is no more. The Brooklyn-based establishment ended service yesterday, concluding more than six years on the Lower East Side. The Jewish-Canadian deli is now down to one location – the Brooklyn original on Hoyt Street. A printout in the window explains how “it was a hard decision to close” […]
