Spotlight Install: Manny Cantor Fitness | New York, NY

The secret of Manhattan’s lower east side is out: It’s Manny Cantor Fitness, a 7,000 square foot, light-filled gym featuring the latest equipment, personal training, group exercise classes and much more.

Key to Manny Cantor’s success—apart from the gorgeous city views and full child care services—is Gym Source, who proudly outfitted this neighborhood community center with almost 40 pieces of equipment before the center opened its doors February, 2014.

“Helping Manny Cantor open its doors as a state-of-the-art fitness center in one of New York’s most celebrated neighborhoods is a huge thrill,” says Marty Weinbaum, commercial sales representative at Gym Source and project leader for the delivery and installation of the fitness equipment now there.

Among the machines installed by Marty and the Gym Source team were Matrix 7Xe treadmills, Octane elliptical trainers, Schwinn AC/Sport spin bikes, and an entire line of Cybex strength training equipment. The team also installed a Cybex Bravo functional trainer, Jacobs Ladder, Stairmaster Stepmill and Hoist CF 2179 3-way Olympic bench.

“The Gym Source team delivered and installed an array of premium cardio, strength-training and functional fitness equipment,” Marty explains. “Over the course of 5 days, we transformed an empty space into the place to bring the family and get fit on the lower east side.”

Now a central gathering spot for the community, Manny Cantor Fitness—in partnership with MediFit, a fitness and wellness consulting firm that designs and manages corporate and community fitness centers throughout the United States—offers 30 exercise classes, personal training services, and classes for children and families.
