Looking forward to seeing everyone in a few weeks.
I used to be a member at Crunch and they do offer a student discount. It USED to be awesome - like $55/mo with no long term commitment.. but I think they've scaled back on that.
I'm currently a member at Bally's for $20/mo with no long term commitment and it's a National membership. The one I go to is located in the Chelsea/Flatiron area, although I'm pretty sure there's one located in the 50's sort of/kind of near Columbus Circle (it's worth looking into). Not the most amazing facilities (ie. no TVs on the machines, limited amount of classes and one absolutely AWFUL yoga instructor), but for $20 it can't be beat.
For those living in Astoria, check out Planet Fitness. I hear it's dirt cheap and pretty nice.
If you're interested in yoga classes, OM Yoga in the Union Square area has a phenomenal discount for students. $5 classes at select times (7:30am throughout the week with a few additional classes thrown in the mix throughout the day and on weekends). There are lots of other places that offer discounts to students on packages for yoga, but OM's seems the most cost effective to the occasional yogi.
Also, I heard there's a small gym in McMahon hall that students have access to (regardless of if they live there). Anyone else hear that?
