A New Gym on Canal Street

Dogpound2 courtesy Hugh JackmanDogPound, which counts actor Hugh Jackman as one of its training clients, has signed a lease for a state-of-the-art gym,” reports the Commercial Observer. “The high-intensity fitness company leased 4,000 square feet on the ground floor at 511 Canal Street at the corner of Renwick Street.” That’s where GL Lites On was, and the Jackman reference is actually somewhat relevant, as this appears to be an extension of the early-morning workouts that he and his friends do (as seen below) at the DogPound’s West Village space.

  1. I’m slightly disappointed DogPound has nothing to do with puppies for us doggy deprived New Yorkers. Looks great though!

  2. I was hoping for a gym where I could bring my dog… that would make me go more often!

  3. im hoping for some powerlifting platforms and some mobility work as I like to do heavy lifts and Olympic meet prep. It’ll be interesting to see if it’s just another place with a bunch of equipment.
