Whether you’re only in town for a New York minute and looking to squeeze in a sweat sesh or live in the Big Apple and are in search of ways to give your fitness routine a spring refresh, the 10 studios below are the latest ones to join the city’s ever-expanding boutique fitness bubble.

Within this new class of exercise spots, you’ll find some of the hottest and coolest (literally) workouts in the world. Chill out with a cold HIIT class at Brrrn—no doubt you’ll feel it for days afterward. See what all the buzz is about at Shock Therapy, which uses electricity to super-charge its classes. Or, opt to turn up the heat at Y7—the hip-hop hot yoga studio is increasing its reach across the city this year. And if you’ve been hitting the gym hard all winter long, spots like ReCOVER and Nap York, which focus on giving your fatigued body some much-needed TLC, have got you.

Here’s everything you need to know about the buzziest studios to open in NYC so far in 2018.

Hit House

It’s easier than ever to try the model favorite workout Muay Thai boxing now that Hit House has opened in SoHo. And you don’t have to be a pro to put on a pair of gloves, either. The studio promises that the kickboxing-cum-martial arts concept will be taught for people at all levels. But if you do happen to be a trained cage fighter, Hit House will have a class for you, too.

2 Spring St., New York, NY 10012,
