Relentless Fitness Is Moving to a New (Bigger!) Location

And there's a grand-opening party this weekend to celebrate.

Washington Square West personal-training studio Relentless Fitness is moving to new digs this week — from 249 South 10th Street to 722 Chestnut Street — doubling the studio’s size to 3,000 square feet of fitness space. “Our goal is to be the best personal training facility in the city,” says co-owner Roger Dickerman, adding that the new space is a step in that direction. 

Here’s why: The training space will feature five full personal training “modules” that can accommodate up to two clients and one trainer each. The modules are completely self-contained, meaning trainers running simultaneous sessions won’t need to share equipment or get in each other’s way. “We’re eliminating the awkward cross-over that can happen when one trainer needs equipment being used by another trainer, and you just have to sit there and wait your turn,” he says.

The new space will also allow Relentless to expand its kids’ gymnastics program. Half of the 3,000-square-foot space will be allotted for gymnastics, and the higher ceilings will allow for full-size equipment, including bars, a balance beam and more. The team is also doubling to a roster of 30.

If you’ve been a longtime fan of Relentless’s group classes, those aren’t going anywhere, but they are being tweaked just a tad: Instead of big group classes, the studio will offer small group training for between four and eight people to allow for more individual attention.

They’ll also be kicking of a race-training program later this month that will focus on getting you ready for challenging obstacle-style races like the Spartan Race. That program will include a group class each week — in nice weather, you’ll be outdoors in Washington Square — plus recommendations for solo workouts between sessions.

Relentless Fitness will officially move into its new location at 722 Chestnut later this week. On Sunday, from noon to 5 p.m., they’re hosting an open house-style grand opening party, where you can check out the new space, meet the team, and enjoy some food and drinks. The gymnastics team will be showing off their skills in an exhibition at 2:30.
