Since 2010, when Retro Fitness opened its first New York area location in Staten Island, the low-cost fitness center has been making major inroads on the East Coast.
Now boasting six locations within the five boroughs, Retro’s low $19.99-a-month fee has been giving its closest competitor, Planet Fitness, a run for its money.
With a new lease on Avenue Y in Brooklyn signed earlier this month, and a projected 30 locations throughout the five boroughs in the next three years, Jack Terzi, a tenant rep for Retro Fitness and president of the brokerage firm JTRE, reviewed the floor plans of its soon-to-open gym at 1623 Flatbush Avenue with The Commercial Observer and explained why the rapidly expanding company chose to open in the Flatlands section of Brooklyn.
