NEW YORK — Fitness guru David Barton is opening a massive new gym this Wednesday in Hell’s Kitchen neighbordhood of Manhattan called TMPL.
Located at 355 W. 49th St., TMPL builds off Barton’s passion for exercise and atmosphere, with groundbreaking metabolic discoveries and medical technology pumping even more vitality into the already booming environment.
Housed in the heart of Manhattan’s iconic Hell’s Kitchen, the spacious TMPL features striking architecture designed by National Design Award winner William Sofield. With soaring 25-foot ceilings supported by illuminated linear columns and over 40,000 square feet of state-of-the-art equipment, TMPL will be New York’s newest modern-day escape. TMPL is scheduled to open March 23, 2016, with pre-enrollment at special founding member rates available now.
At the core of TMPL is hard-wired science. Barton has assembled an elite team, composed of top doctors, nutritionists, biochemists and physiologists, to analyze and provide members with their unique DDP: Dynamic Digital Profile. Personal DDP will pinpoint the exercise and diet needed to achieve each individual’s ultimate physical outcome. Whether the goal is to unleash the abdominals or tackle a triathlon, TMPL members will have access to the metabolic science necessary to drastically change their body.
“The future is everywhere: phones, cars, the way we socialize, how we date,” said Barton, founder and CEO of TMPL. “Our world is smarter, faster, ultra high-tech and revolutionary and it’s all happening at lightning speed. In creating TMPL, I envision a gym that operates at that velocity, with that level of wind in its sails.”
Barton’s ultra-detailed approach to training his team includes exercises in sketching live models so trainers truly grasp clients’ bodies and goals. In addition to this attention to service, TMPL will offer the aforementioned body intelligence assessment, personal training and nutritional expertise. TMPL amenities include a 25-meter saltwater pool with dedicated aqua classes, 20 tons of free weights, digitally programmed equipment, virtual reality cycle studio with immersive 30-foot video wall, steam room and sauna.
