Fitness Center

Shrink or Grow. Whatever your goals are, we’re here to help you reach them.

Our Fitness Center has been a staple in Brooklyn’s fitness scene for several generations, dating back to the original building in 1982. And now, fresh off of a $300,000 facility renovation and a rebranding, it would be fitting to say that we’ve grown up together. Center Strong is here to continue paving the way of a strong and healthy lifestyle for our members

Though the atmosphere here is warm and inviting, the room’s latest redesign has matured to focus entirely around one thing: results. Visit us to work on your own or work with a trainer and get the body you deserve.
