Lucille's Story

Lucille as a child

Lucille Roberts believed women deserved an affordable and comfortable environment where they could exercise, lose weight, and have fun doing it. After discovering her love for aerobics classes, Lucille became an instructor and her classes were so popular that she opened her own gym.

She began with one location in 1969 across the street from Macy’s Herald Square, and today, Lucille Roberts has nearly 50 locations in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

Lucille’s work has made this gym one of the top 10 chains in the country, and we are ranked #1 in value by fitness magazines every year.

The goal was simple: provide strong, sexy and confident women with a place they can call their own. Half a million women will tell you that goal has been accomplished!
