I have to hand it to Fhitting Room…they have some of the best client service that I’ve seen from a fitness studio. In my last review of the studio’s 67th street location, I wrote that I enjoyed the class but was underwhelmed. Two of my complaints were the lack of showers and the size of the class, which is not the “personalized” experience that the studio sells on its website. Shortly afterwards, a member of their business development team got in touch with me and offered me a free “Pit” class, which is capped at ten students, at their Flatiron location, which does (thankfully!) have wonderful bathing facilities. While I still maintain that $38 per class is expensive, the Pit class convinced me that it may sometimes be worth paying the price. And if you’re a ClassPass member? Run — don’t walk.
Going into Fhitting Room, I didn’t have many expectations. Reading a lot of fitness publications, I constantly hear about new studios with all of these fun themes and methods (I’m looking at you, Switch Playground and Tone House). Fhitting Room had become one of those names that I heard frequently tossed around, but I didn’t know anything about them, apart from their cool logo. When one of my readers reached out to me about studios she goes to in the city, she specifically called Fhitting Room out — and I knew I had to try it.
