Commandment #7: Thou shalt get a gym membership and run in Central Park

New Yorkers are workout-obsessed. Whether you feel like blissing out in yoga (zen-style), taking the 30/60/90 class at Equinox (warrior-style) or just running in Central Park, one thing is for sure: you will not escape the workout frenzy taking over all New Yorkers.

In NY, fitness is a religion. Your place of worship is the gym.

Equinox, David Barton, NY Health & Racquet Club, Chelsea Piers … the list is extensive and you can be sure there is something for everyone. Choosing your gym in NY is a big deal, a kind of “tell me where you exercise and I’ll tell you who you are”. And with the plethora of classes offered, the choice quickly becomes tricky.

So why choosing? What if we told you that for $99 per month you could get unlimited access to more than 500 fitness classes in New York. The Spotify of workouts. This is what ClassPass offers with its flat-rate subscription that allows you to easily mix up your workouts – say, boxing one day, aerial yoga the next. A little bit of CrossFit, Krav Maga, Cycling and even, for the more daring, Barry’s Boot Camp (voted one of the hardest workouts in NY).
