200712gymwburg.jpgWhile Williamsburg may have a lot to offer in the way of bars, restaurants and luxury condos...it's been lacking in one area: gyms. It looks like soon enough the void will be filled, enter Soma Health Club.

A call inquiring about fees has not been returned yet, but expect to pay more than you would at the Metropolitan Pool & Fitness Center. Housed in an old theater located at 107 South 6th Street here's what we do know so far about the "full-service luxury health club":

  • 16,000 square feet of loft-style floor space
  • State-of-the-art spin room
  • Private yoga room
  • Atrium stretch room
  • Sauna and steam rooms

We walked by and the construction fence is now down, with tons of promo encouraging "early registration" in the windows (they've also been flyering cars all around the neighborhood). Soma is poised to open in January 2008 -- just in time for those New Year's resolutions!
