Kara Schlotthauer

It’s not hard to break a sweat in the heat of the summer, but you can work one up even quicker in the hottest gyms in NYC! Luxury doesn’t take a backseat even in the fitness world with a membership to one (or all!) of these high-end establishments to keep you in your best shape.

Performix House

 A membership to this gym is as tough to snag as the workout you’re sure to get once inside. Only a handful of applicants are handed access to Performix’s amenities after a process of an online application and a phone interview with members of the team in order to keep members focused on a “performance-driven lifestyle.” A monthly fee of $900 grants exclusive rights to an array of unlimited amenities, including keys to the House, infrared cryotherapy and sauna experiences and Performix supplements. Upon acceptance into the House, one of twenty-five top trainers are assigned to help guide members to achieve their fitness goals.

Equinox is available to high-class members almost anywhere in the city. Spread out at 36 uniquely designed New York locations, the club offers services to boost your performance to the next level. A main incentive for membership here is the unlimited access to group fitness classes, included in the monthly membership fee. While taking advantage of the top of the line fitness equipment, drop the kids off at the Kids Club for up to two hours. Aside from the fitness amenities, an Equinox membership will put you on the list for seasonal exclusive events.
