Blink Fitness opens Astoria Location: Membership Costs $15 per month


Jan 3, 2014 By Michael Florio

For all those people looking to get in shape in 2014—a new low-cost gym opened in Astoria last month.

Blink Fitness, which touts its discount pricing, modern equipment and cleanliness, opened up a facility at 32-27 Steinway Street on Dec. 12.

For straphangers, the location is close to the Steinway Street subway station. Meanwhile, for drivers, the club offers its members free parking at an adjacent lot.

“When choosing the Astoria community to open up a Blink Fitness, we saw an excellent match,” said Erin Dabe, the marketing manager of the Astoria location. Local residents appreciate both “value and affordability,” she added.

The club offers two membership options.

The first, known as the gray package, offers members access just to the Steinway Street location.  However, it costs a mere $15-per-month.

The second option, called the blue package, provides members with access to all 25 Blink locations, with the exception of the NoHo branch.  This package is $20-per-month.

Both packages provide a one-time free personal training session.

Blink, according to its website, provides “top of the line equipment, including cardio machines with built-in TV’s and clean and comfortable locker rooms.”
