Best Gym


In an era when boutique gyms and outdoor boot camps seem to be sweeping us off our feet, it’s nice to know there’s still one place where we can get a variety of workouts that won’t result in a deflated bank account. New York Health & Racquet Club has come a long way from the days of basic aerobic classes and standard equipment. What makes this gym stand out from the rest is its state-of-the-art facilities, spotless locker rooms, supportive staff, and its innovative ways of staying on top of the game. It has added a slew of workout classes and hired the finest trainers in the city, who are in tune with today’s competitive physical regimens, including cycling, yoga, strength classes, dance, and more. It has reasonably priced packages, an extensive selection of exercise equipment, and hours that fit New Yorkers’ schedules, so you’re not going from gym to gym. 24 East 13th Street, 212-924-4600 (10003); 270 Park Avenue South, 212-245-6917 (10010); 60 West 23rd Street, 212-989-2300 (10010); 132 East 45th Street, 212-986-3100 (10017); 20 East 50th Street, 212-593-1500 (10022); 110 West 56th Street, 212-541-7200 (10019); 1433 York Avenue, 212-737-6666 (10021); 62 Cooper Square, 212-904-0400 (10003); 39 Whitehall Street, 212-269-9800, (10004)
