On Thursday, November 21st, THE GYM of Armonk will be “spreading the thanks” by hosting a day of special offerings, guest instructors and new class showcases, all designed to show appreciation for the loyal members that keep THE GYM growing year after year.
With special membership options available and all guests admitted free of charge all day, members are invited to bring a friend to learn more about THE GYM. Breakfast and coffee will be served in the morning hours (between 8 and 11am) and lite fare along with wine and beer will be available in the evening (between 6-9pm). DJCATCH1 will be spinning the tunes on the fitness floor as well as in some of our group fitness classes throughout the day as well.
An exciting and exclusive Zumba Master Class with Oscar Gonzalez, International Master Fitness Instructor, will be open to members and non-members alike at 9:30am. This renowned instructor is best known for combining his party-producing skills along with his love of Broadway musicals, concerts and music videos to create a fun, high energy and unique Zumba experience.

He is well known in Manhattan and the Hamptons as the “Trainer to the Stars”, training such personalities as Supermodel Christy Brinkley, Warner Brothers Executive Producer, Mike Tadross, Writer and Cosmopolitan Editorial Director, John Searles, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts Executive Director, Mara Manus, FOX News Channel host and contributor, Dr. Georgia Witkin.
“It’s going to be a day for the record books!” said Jamie Nicastri, General Manager at THE GYM. “We are honored to have Oscar Gonzalez teaching a very special Zumba Master Class, and we can’t wait to showcase our new offerings to our members and their guests!”
