Health, yeah! The landmark 512-room TWA Hotel, opening on May 15, 2019, will feature a 10,000-square-foot fitness center.
The Wright Fit — designer of more than 140 premium health clubs worldwide and operator of 20 facilities in New York City, including 15 Central Park West, 432 Park Avenue, 220 Central Park South and 150 Charles Street — will manage the 10,000-square-foot fitness center. CEO Jay Wright, a leading strength and conditioning specialist and celebrity trainer, designed the cutting-edge gym with his team.
Eero Saarinen, the prolific designer of the 1962 former TWA terminal under restoration by MCR/MORSE Development as the TWA Hotel, once described his building as “a place of movement.” It’s even more true today: Quadruple the size of the world’s biggest hotel gyms, the TWA Hotel’s progressive, functional performance-based fitness center will offer TWF’s signature mix of futuristic and best-of-the-past equipment, including strength-trainers (sandbags, kettlebells, TRX) and conditioning machines (rowers, treadmills, ellipticals).
Offering day passes and monthly membership, the fitness center is free for TWA Hotel guests and open 24/7. You can strike a pose in the yoga studio, secure a personal trainer — or just show up for one of the heart-pumping cycling sessions on the packed schedule of classes.
Afterward, cool down with nutritious, rejuvenating snacks and juices at the on-site galley. Need to catch a flight? No sweat. Freshen up in the locker rooms outfitted with up to eight showers and fully-stocked, salon-style vanities (think hairdryers and custom TWA Hotel grooming products).
The TWA Hotel, JFK Airport’s only on-airport hotel, will feature:
• Six restaurants, including The Paris Café, and eight bars, including The Sunken Lounge
• An Intelligentsia coffeebar and coffee carts throughout the hotel grounds
• High-end retail outlets
• 50,000 square feet of event space, including a 15,000-square-foot ballroom
• A rooftop pool and observation deck
• A Lockheed Constellation “Connie” L-1649A transformed into a cocktail lounge
