     After my first visit to West River Fitness Club it was easy to see why they've gotten such excellent reviews. You feel right at home, so quickly, at this place. There's just a such great bunch of racquetball people here, including Rob A., the club's instructor, who is so generous with good advice to help one's game. I actually ended up staying much longer than I anticipated because I kept being asked to play, either singles or doubles. I was not expecting to be in what literally felt like a racquetball marathon on my first visit! West River Fitness gets 5 stars from me for all it offers in racquetball, plus its high cleanliness standards all around the club, and rates that are very easy on the wallet. I'm a member now, and know I'll be very happy here.

     Visiting West River Fitness Club yesterday turned out to be one of my best experiences since moving to NY. Rob A. was simply great with helping me understand, and approach learning racquetball the right way. The practice games I later played with Bob were extremely enjoyable, and allowed me to work on the basics Rob taught me. It all definitely made me feel I'm on my way to a higher level of play (albeit slowly, but surely). I intend to practice diligently what I learned. I even met a very nice person who will be my regular playing/practice partner on Thurs. nights! Everything about West River Fitness Club speaks of quality, and I'm so glad I took the time to visit. This is an outstanding place!

     I guess I can't help but also get on the West River Fitness bandwagon after my visit. First, it's the closest place near me to play racquetball. Had no problem getting a court with my friend for 7:00 pm this past Wed, after a quick call a few hours earlier. We stayed for over 2 hours, and enjoyed every minute. Rob A., the club's instructor was there, and gave us some excellent advice which we implemented in our games. Everything about the courts and racquetball area is optimal for the most enjoyable play. Surprising how low the walk in court fees are, considering the club's Manhattan location, and the high quality standard this facility maintains. So my bottom line is I was very impressed with West River Fitness, and intend to play much more there.

     After reading the previous reviews, and starving for racquetball play again, I contacted Rob A. at West River Fitness Club. I then grabbed my gear and trotted over there for a peek earlier today. I'm certainly glad I did. It really is a nice club. I got in several singles and doubles games, and just had a very enjoyable time. A bonus was when Rob noticed and corrected some errors in my go-to pinch shots, and they became tighter and more effective. Looks like I'll be playing regularly at West River Fitness...great club, very nice people, and excellent rates.

     I've been a member of West River Fitness for 14 months now. I play racquetball and work out there regularly. I took racquetball lessons previously with Rob A., and he's as good an instructor as they come. My game was always raised after each hour with Rob. Had no problem finding others to play with regularly two evenings a week, when I decided that would be my routine for racquetball. The tournaments, when scheduled, are lots of fun, and very nice prizes are awarded. The general atmosphere around the club is very relaxed and friendly, and I made some good friends at this club. All areas of the club are always very well maintained. I'm a full club member, but other options are also offered. Whichever way, West River Fitness definitely offers some great values for a Manhattan club with racquetball courts. Overall, I've been as happy as could be with having joined :)

     I moved to NY in mid Oct. Finding a convenient place to play racquetball, combined with getting a court at a time I preferred, proved tougher than I expected. Not to mention finding players at my skill level who I could get together with regularly. So I was very pleasantly surprised when I visited West River Fitness earlier this month. Rob A. was able to hook me up with regular playing partners at my level, and I now find myself playing 2-3 evenings a week. I honestly couldn't be happier; I found an excellent, convenient racquetball club, and a great bunch of people/players who share my passion for the game. My thanks to Rob, this NYC RB Group, and all the reviewers. I highly recommend West River Fitness to all racquetball enthusiasts looking for a great place to play in NYC.

     I was persuaded by my 2 friends, who are members of West River Fitness, to take a racquetball lesson with them. None of us had played racquetball before, only a little tennis. Coach Rob A's expertise of the game coupled with his great elucidation, fundamental drill practices, as well as his patience with 3 hyper ladies made the lesson highly enjoyable and productive. We all agreed that we got more than our money's worth, and can't wait to play regularly and progress further. The three of us will be buying our own racquets this coming weekend at Paragon. Thanks Rob! See you soon!!

     I had a great time playing racquetball at West River Fitness this evening. I'm so excited to have found a great place and wonderful people connected to a sport that I have loved for so long. Rob A. was so kind to allow us to use the court and offer helpful instruction. I'm hoping to get my serve back after some practice and am looking forward to playing weekly again.
