According to the American Psychological Association: Monitor on Psychology, you are 10x more likely to accomplish a goal, such as losing weight, if you make it a New Year's resolution.

Believe it or not, but you should since it’s true, losing weight is my top New Years resolution. While I’m not fat, I’m on my way there (#sadface) so it’s time for some action. Assisting me in my journey are, in order of importance, 1.) my friends, who are doing it with me and 2.) David Barton Gym in Astor Place!

My gym selection blossomed from attending their sick holiday bash in December, which raised money and collected toys for Toys for Tots while doling out killer cocktails for the huge (and mostly gay but 100% fabulous) crowd. Our gift bag was an astounding complimentary one-month membership, which included a FREE personal trainer session to kick-start our form plus full access to their jam-packed fitness class roster. Most gym trials only last three days, and some come across generous with a week, but let me tell you, this free month along with my motivated girl pack sold it to me.

It’s been less than week, but I’m absolutely taken with the gym. While it owns the reputation of being like a club, I find it appealing since it makes me respect the space I’m in. It’s fascinating to look around and surprising that every nook boasts a wonderful new detail you may have never noticed before. And having an in-house DJ in the evening kicks ass.

But enough of my bragging and here’s the real point: even though you missed their party in December, you can reap the benefits and make your New Years Resolution come true, because David Barton Gym in Astor Place has agreed to offer NYCRD readers the same COMPED one month membership!

All you have to do to redeem this exclusive offer is email Smokey,, and mention you saw this offer on NYCRD. But act fast, because this exclusive offer is only available for one week! You must email and meet with Smokey by January 19. And don’t worry – his sales pitch is basically just showing you the beautiful gym, because the space sells itself.

Yes, I love you too. See you at the gym.

P.S. If you enroll in January there's a $0 signing fee!
