    Met pool is great, but also make sure you check out the free fitness classes here, such as Cardio Sculpt and Intensati. Try a Shape Up NYC class for free, and come back for low-cost fitness! Read more

    Pool dimensions are 75ft x 30ft. That's about 72 lengths for a mile. Or about 44 lengths for a kilometer.

    Get in before 9:10pm, even if the schedule says they'll be open to 9:30pm. You might think you can squeeze in 20 minute of exercise but the staff has a tendency to close early.

    Update: it's $150/yr but the $75/6 month option is avail. You have to be enthusiastic or at least tolerant of circle swimming, but the water's cool. Jump in.

    Membership to this center (and all others) is $150 a year. You’ll get access to the clean and slightly chilly pool. Beware of the mandatory showers, they’re cold too!

  • Darwin P.

    The prices may be going up, but it's still a great deal since you can use any of their facilities in the city with a membership. That being said, the men's locker room can get extremely humid on any h
