4 Gym Classes to Try if You Live in New York City

If you’re looking for a new fitness routine and are a fan of classes, then it might be time to start trying out some of the best fitness classes that New York City has to offer. Lucky for you, we’ve tested many of them and got you covered with some honest reviews of some of NYC’s popular gym classes.

Soul Cycle

Soul Cycle is a great choice if you’re looking to do spin in a fun, supportive, and non-competitive environment. They often have fun-themed rides, which is great for fans of pop sensations like Taylor Swift. The trainers are really high energy and motivational. It is not the most budget-friendly option, however; so if you’re looking for a less expensive option, Cyclebar is also great.


Barry’s is excellent if you’re looking to torch calories and be challenged. It’s a tough workout combining speed intervals on the treadmill followed by weight sessions. This is also on the costlier side, so if you’re looking for a more affordable option, Orange Theory is an option.

Rumble Boxing

Rumble is excellent for core and cardio movements in a high-energy workout environment. The class combines boxing sessions with weight training for the ultimate HIIT and sweat session. 

Mile High Run Club

This boutique gym has a few studios across NYC and offers speed and interval treadmill training and is taught by expert running coaches. This is an excellent option for those training for a race, or just looking to add some cardio to their routines.
