Dmitry Druzhinsky began the most ambitious project of his career in 2012: a $20 million process to develop New York’s most elaborate health and fitness destination. After a strenuous negotiation process, a coveted three-acre plot of land in Coney Island was obtained, and plans to develop the largest complex of its kind in Brooklyn, at 120,000 sq. ft., were drawn. Upon conclusion of development in 2014, MatchPoint NYC successfully raised the standard and expectations for recreational centers throughout the Big Apple, becoming the desired workout space for families, professional athletes, and high-end philanthropic events. The center’s unparalleled, luxurious facilities allow for an expansive collection of training programs, league sports and group classes that similar rec centers simply cannot accommodate, while its professional and highly trained staff of certified instructors, personal trainers and nutrition expers inspire, challenge and support members in improving their overall health and wellness.
