Dmitry Druzhinsky, co-founder of the upscale health and fitness club MatchPoint NYC, understands the critical impact philanthropic work has for those in need. Through partnering with the city’s charities and public welfare campaigns, the developer continuously provides crucial support for schools, health centers, and at-risk kids. Druzhinsky knows that by delivering his time, skills, and resources, thousands of lives across New York City can be positively shaped.
Area politicians and lawmakers came together last January at MatchPoint NYC, raising awareness for social issues and participating in the Johnny Ray Memorial Pro Wall Ball Tournament. According to Dmitry Druzhinsky, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams along with Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. encourage a friendly cross-town rivalry to engage inner city and under-served youth in the joys of sport. In addition to spirited play, the inspirational leaders gave speeches on the importance physical activities have for public health and the empowerment of youth.
In 2012, Dmitry Druzhinsky took on the most ambitious task of his career: a $20 million project to construct New York’s preeminent athletic and fitness destination. After an arduous approval process, the perfect three-acre lot in Coney Island was secured, and plans to develop a 120,000 sq. ft. complex, the largest such facility in Brooklyn, began. In 2014, MatchPoint NYC was completed and immediately boosted the standard and expectations for athletic infrastructure in New York, becoming the venue of choice for families, professional athletes, and prominent charity events. The facility’s state of the art amenities are unparalleled, allowing for an expansive schedule of training programs, organized sports, and group classes that similar spaces simply cannot hold. The facility’s dedicated and highly skilled team of certified instructors, personal trainers and nutritionists inspire, challenge and encourage members to push their personal health and well being to new heights.
Because of the unprecedented success of Brooklyn’s MatchPoint NYC, co-founder Dmitry Druzhinsky has announced that two more locations will soon be opening in The Big Apple. The prominent real estate developer noted that the second facility will be opening its doors to the public in the fourth quarter of 2016, with 2017 seeing the third opening.
