After a decade of being closed, Blink Fitness re-opened the restored Ridgewood Theatre at 55-27 Myrtle Avenue on November 13.
As Blink worked to restore the former Ridgewood Theatre, it was important to the team to maintain the original design of theatre. The landmarked marquee of the theatre remains, and all Blink Fitness gym members will walk through the famed façade.
“We’re sure that Blink will restore this location to a healthy, happy hub of activity in the neighborhood,” said club manager Freddy Olmedo.
As a part of the Grand Opening celebration, Blink Fitness also donated 50 one-year memberships, worth over $10,000, to the Greater Ridgewood Youth Council, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for youths and families in Queens.
“This incredibly generous gift from Blink allows us to enhance our efforts in this area and creates a partnership that will last a long time,” said council president Bob Monahan.
The newest Blink Fitness facility offers top-of-the-line strength equipment, wide variety of premium cardio machines, and a multi-use space for additional exercises, stretching, and functional training.
Certified personal trainers are available for those members who wish to create a custom workout experience tailored to their personal goals.
