New York Sports Clubs (NYSC), the largest owner and operator of health and fitness clubs in the tri-state area, today announced the opening of its NYSC New Rochelle location in Westchester County. The club is located on the second floor in the new 40 story luxury condominium at Trump Plaza.

NYSC's fitness team has designed and programmed the facility to make members' workouts both enjoyable and efficient. Treadmills, ellipticals and other cardio machines are equipped with individual entertainment systems so that members can enjoy TV or music while they exercise. An extensive group exercise schedule offers a variety of classes in the large main studio, including step, total body conditioning and Boot Camp while three other specialty studios feature cycling, pilates, yoga, and boxing programs.
