If you’re like us, you’re on a fixed income and are forced to workout at a fluorescent-lit torture chamber inhabited by creatures better left at the Black Lagoon and the fab David Barton Gym on 23rd Street is just a pipe dream.

But now through Saturday, if you enroll with a one-year membership at David Barton, you get the rest of the summer free! No fees or payments until September 1st. Okay, its not really free, but its a good discount and the gym creatures are a little better looking. Just a little.
