Aviator Sports and Recreation, the new mega-sports complex in Brooklyn, has announced the official opening of its state-of-the-art Performance & Fitness Center, featuring a world class design, expert trainers, innovative classes and high-tech, cutting edge equipment and machines.

From a mid-fielder on a high school soccer team or a future Olympian to a busy mom who wants to catch a workout while the kids play nearby, Aviator Sports Performance & Fitness Center offers an array of fitness opportunities to suit everyone. Annual membership is $600, and to celebrate the grand opening, the initiation fee has been waived.

The 15,000-square-foot gym, located within the 170,000-square-foot Aviator complex, also offers two rare perks: free towel service and free, plentiful parking just outside its doors. Private massage rooms, pro style locker areas, a sports bar with HD plasma TVs as well as a member lounge, Performance Café filled with healthy fare, and day-care services are on site as well. The entire Aviator Sports and Recreation facility - from the indoor ice rinks, gymnastics center and basketball courts to its outdoor football and soccer fields - can be integrated into any fitness program.

Such versatility allows for numerous training methodologies for a variety of sports and activities.

Aviator's Sports Performance & Fitness Center also includes an adult group fitness studio, which features a state-of-the-art wood suspension floor, and offers a range of innovative classes such as Yoga, Pilates, Body Conditioning and Sculpting, Step and Boot Camp.

"Whether you are a body builder or just trying to lose a few pounds, the Aviator fitness center has the equipment and expert staff to help you realize your fitness goals."

Personal trainers are on site and ready to create a individual program. All personal trainers are nationally certified by the widely respected and internationally recognized CSCS as Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists and/or the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).

All new members receive a complimentary fitness evaluation; the results from the one-hour testing session are compared and categorized based upon age, frame size, gender and weight. This data is used to determine limiting factors as well as targeted goals.
