We're Here For Good. It's been the signature phrase of New York City's YMCA since early 2008, and it describes the Y's commitment to building the foundation of-and strengthening-ourcommunities, through nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving communityhealth and well-being for their spirit, mind and body.
TOPshape Health & Fitness was founded by sisters Crystal and Aphrodite Varellas. The girls believe that fitness is not necessarily about how you look on the outside, but building strength on the inside and the mental freedom you receive from working with good people. The girls want to build a strong loving team, that genuinely cares about helping others. Their philosophy is to help people live life in QUALITY.
They began this journey to spread positivity with their mother Harriet Varellas who was diagnosed with stage 3-lung cancer in 2011. After losing their hero and warrior to this disease in 2013, the girls knew that their mission in life was to spread awareness of the importance of health.
TOPshape is dedicated in loving memory of their mother, Harriet Varellas.

Family oriented business, but hard working at what we do! Call for evaluation, and work outs by appointment only.
What is in a class?
Classes are only an hour long, consisting of weight-training, calisthenics, rowing, and running. A certified coach teaches how to perform each exercise properly so you can get the most results, and stay injury-free. You'll be training with a group of up to 8 people.
Is this for everyone?
Yes! Our members range from 56 year-old mothers that haven't exercised in years, to 18 year-old athletes. Though everyone gets the same workout, your exercises will differ based on your level of experience. For example: If you have never touched a bar before, you will be working with a white plastic PVC pipe.
What are the benefits of working out here?
Our workouts vary day to day, so you will never be tired of the same routine, and challenge your body to improve in areas you never trained. Unlike regular gyms, we dedicate our resources to helping you achieve your goals, from teaching you, motivating you, and tracking progress throughout our program. You're basically "renting" a personal trainer (don't worry, you get our gym too).
