Living in Manhattan: Staying fit

Fitness class at the gym

The sheer pace of life in Manhattan demands a fitness regimen of equal intensity. Do you want to grab life by the throat and wring every last moment with breathless energy? Then you’ve come to the right place.

Here are some of the best places to stay fit when living in Manhattan!

305 Fitness
1440 3rd Avenue,
New York, NY 10028

Sadie Kurzban founded 305 Fitness where intense cardio workouts are conducted with a live DJ. While choreography is integral to learning the routines, the workout doesn’t require participants to have studied dance. The steps are guaranteed to burn calories whether you stay on beat or not – up to 700 in an hour!

1 Renwick Street
New York, NY 10013

You can work out in this personal training gym by joining a class, bringing a friend along, or simply one-on-one with your trainer. Workouts are adapted individually and are also paired with a nutritional regimen. Dogpound doesn’t just focus on gym work, it also encourages lifestyle changes.

112 Bowery
New York, NY 10013

P.volve isn’t about exhausting, high-stress workouts. Instead, strength, not bulk, is emphasized. Workouts use natural daily movements and produce results that manifest as tone and definition. Workouts are not routine, with different combinations of movements in each visit. Both muscles and joints benefit from the low-stress approach. Recommended sessions are three to four times a week.

Work Train Fight (WTF)
636 Broadway #204
New York, NY 10012

WTF teaches real boxing, not just “sparring” with a punching bag. Boxing and strength training are taught in 55-minute sessions. In one class you’ll be educated on technique, form, bag and mitt work, and even circuit training. With smaller class sizes, trainers have time to interact with every student.

555 6th Avenue
New York, NY 10011

NYSC Labs subscribes to the Stoked AthletiCORE fitness program. It targets the entire body and is an adaptation of the barre program. Students exercise to become stronger, leaner, and more defined.

Union Square 80, 5th Avenue
New York, NY 10011

This gym offers high-intensity workouts serviced by rowing machines. Workouts target all major muscle groups, including quads, core, biceps, triceps, and hamstrings. Despite the strenuousness of the workout, it is low stress (low impact) on joints. Suggested attendance is three times a week.

Mile High Run Club
NOHO, 28 E 4th Street
New York, NY 10003

This is the only dedicated treadmill workout place in New York City. It’s good for those who enjoy running or want to train hard for professional competitions. The running can also be done with coaching, especially for those who are new to the discipline.

Core Power Yoga
Upper West Side, 2030 Broadway
New York, NY 10023

Featuring intense one-hour yoga classes, the workout improves both health and mental focus. Yoga can improve the cardiovascular system, reduce weight, and tone muscles.

Perhaps the best and worst thing about Manhattan’s gyms is the sheer number you have to choose from. Shortlist your faves based on location and the kind of training program that’s best for you.
