Fifth & 10th

Let there be ever more gyms & fitness studios? A new gym will have its Grand Opening on November 4th. This one, Beast Fitness Evolved, is aiming for a cooler vibe than the area norm.

Park Slope Patch got the details back in May:

A new gym coming to Fifth Avenue in Park Slope will offer high-intensity classes set to DJ music and surrounded by works from local artists...
... "We're really harping on the Brooklyn aspect," said (owner Nik) Barricelli, who was born in Park Slope. "We're going to have a lot of pop culture icons born and raised in Brooklyn on the walls. A lot of local artists. I want to use local DJs as well. We want to keep it very Brooklyn."

The Beast website describes the the gym as Brooklyn's "first home-grown boutique fitness center in the heart of Park Slope," "sewn into the fabric" of the community.  There's a clothing & accessories online store, and a promo video, some of which is shot in the Slope, around GAP and the Fourth subway station. No membership prices listed on the site as yet - you'll have to "join the pack."
