Chelsea Piers in Stamford, CT, will add a 65,000-square-foot facility later this year adjacent to its 400,000-square-foot sports complex.
The members-only facility will be called CP-AC Fitness (Chelsea Piers Athletic Club) geared specifically for adults. According to a Chelsea Piers press release, the facility will feature 25,000 square feet of strength and cardio equipment, a dedicated mind/body center for Pilates Reformer classes, multi-disciplinary and hot yoga, as well as traditional group fitness studios and dedicated space for triathlon and competitive cycling training.
The facility also will have more than 75 weekly fitness classes and programs and a Queenax Bridge studio for suspension, boxing and functional training. Membership includes access to the Olympic-sized pool, hardwood basketball courts, a 1/5-mile indoor tack, indoor turf fields, plus tennis and squash courts, subject to scheduling and/or reservation.
Chelsea Piers said in the press release that the facility will be ready this fall. David Tewksbury, president of Chelsea Piers Connecticut, told the Stamford Advocate that the facility will be open by about Dec. 1. Tewksbury says the new facility will be "the finest fitness facility in the state of Connecticut."
"It also rounds out a lot of what Chelsea Piers can be, which is a home for the whole family," Tewksbury told the newspaper. "We can be the place that people choose to spend their time and lead a healthy lifestyle."
Chelsea Piers Connecticut opened in 2012. The Chelsea Piers Sports and Entertainment Complex in New York opened in 1995.
