The center’s musical gymnastics center, basketball court, yoga workshop, and full size gym with innovative equipment enable it to house for athletic events that other sports clubs just cannot. The USA SAMBO Open Championship, an assembly of the world’s masters of Sambo and Judo, had participants from twelve diverse countries, and recognized the World Champion of the sport. In a community outreach endeavor, politicians from Brooklyn and the Bronx contested in the Johnny Ray Memorial Pro Wall Ball Tournament, an event used as a stage for the local leaders to speak about the significance of public health and youth enablement. MatchPoint NYC offers adolescents and adult swimming lessons in its Junior Olympic pool and Kids Aquatic Center, a favorite program of native residents. Attendees range from toddlers to hopeful Olympians, and led by coach Konstantin Petrov, Dmitry Druzhinsky believes they are in good hands, “Konstantin presently has a Level 4 Certificate from the American Swimming Coaching Association, putting him in the top five percentile of all coaches in the nation.” The earlier Olympic Bronze medalist brings over thirty years of experience on the local, national, and global scale.
Dmitry Druzhinsky, co-founder of the affluent health and fitness complex MatchPoint NYC, appreciates the productive consequence philanthropic actions can have on a society in need of support. By associating with local charities and public welfare plans, the entrepreneur gives essential backing to schools, hospitals, and at-risk youth. Druzhinsky says that by giving his expendable time, services, and resources, a large number of lives across New York City can be upgraded.
Dmitry Druzhinsky accepted an ambitious project back in 2012: a $20 million endeavor to develop New York’s best health and fitness destination. It has been a strenuous negotiation process with the city, but a coveted three-acre parcel in Coney Island was obtained, and plans to develop the largest fitness center in Brooklyn, at 120,000 sq. ft., were drawn and undertaken. When construction finished in 2014, MatchPoint NYC immediately raised the standard and expectations for rec centers throughout the city, becoming the desired venue for families, professional athletes, and high-end charity functions. The center’s unparalleled, upmarket amenities allow for an expansive offering of activities, league sports and group classes that similar rec centers simply cannot make room for, while the professional and highly trained staff of certified professionals, personal trainers and nutrition experts inspire, push and support members in improving their overall happiness.
