Finally, after over a year of waiting and wondering what is going on behind the brown paper, and what to do with your membership…. Blink Fitness – Valley Stream is finally opening its doors to the public.
I tried to gain access to the building for a few photos of the new facility before the opening, but was told by their PR firm that they weren’t able to do so. Darn! So I just showed up and was welcomed by the friendly, and very attractive staff. Can’t blame a girl for being bold!
Blink Fitness, the premium-quality, value-based fitness club will be hosting a grand opening celebration on Saturday, March 12th at 10:00 a.m. opening their 42nd club, located in Valley Stream on Sunrise Highway and Rockaway Avenue between McDonald’s and Entemmans. Oh, the pressure.
The facility is large, colorful, and has plenty of selling points which I’m sure will please most.
There us absolutely no childcare onsite. I looked. Nada. That would have definitely been a selling point. If you need childcare, this isn’t the gym for you.
Opening Day attendees will have the chance to receive Blink Fitness branded gear, and one lucky winner will be given a one-year membership to the new gym. Yay!
Blink Fitness will be donating 50 one-year memberships, worth over $10,000, to Building Homes for Heroes, an organization strongly committed to rebuilding lives and supporting the brave men and women who were injured while serving the country during the time of the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan.
In addition, Valley Stream Mayor Edwin A. Fare will be in attendance to present a ceremonial citation to Blink Fitness.
Will I be there? I can’t say for sure because I like to sleep in when I can on Saturday’s….but I encourage you to attend.
VSMomTip: There is metered street parking nearby and a Village lot located on 4th Street. You will need a parking permit because the lot is definitely patrolled regularly. You can also have your car valet parked if you choose which is also on 4th Street.
