Gotham - - The Source: Self -

BAL­LET BEAU­TI­FUL

Strengthen your core like you’re one of Lin­coln Cen­ter’s finest at this bal­let­based class for bal­ance, strength, and el­e­gance. IN­SIDER TIP: Fol­low founder Mary He­len Bow­ers on In­sta­gram (@bal­let­beau­ti­ful) for some pre-ses­sion in­spi­ra­tion. Not only are her moves trans­for­ma­tive, the feed is ar­rest­ingly beau­ti­ful to look at. 98 Greene St.; bal­let­beau­ti­ful.com

FHITTING ROOM

The bou­tique fit­ness stu­dio, which spe­cial­izes in un­der-an-hour, high­in­ten­sity work­outs, has lo­ca­tions on the UES and in Flat­iron. It’s a fast-mov­ing whiplash of a work­out. 31 W. 19th St., 646-850-0469; fhit­tin­groom.com

EX­HALE

This is where fit­ness and spa meet. Our tip for the coolest class to book is a one-on-one ses­sion of Thai yoga. The stretch is sub­tle, but the im­pact is trans­for­ma­tive. 150 Cen­tral Park South, 212-561-7400; ex­halespa.com

SLT

Strengthen, lengthen, tone—that’s the mantra at this line of fit­ness stu­dios across the city. IN­SIDER TIP: Try to get into founder Amanda Free­man’s class. She cre­ated the Pi­lates-based ex­er­cises from her own SLT Me­gaformer Classes, but she mixes it up with Chais­e­fit­ness and yoga. Var­i­ous lo­ca­tions, 212-226-7814; slt­nyc.com

SOULCYCLE

A cross be­tween fit­ness, fash­ion, mu­sic, and cul­ture, Soulcycle has be­come a life­style for many—in ad­di­tion to of­fer­ing some of the best cy­cling classes in the city. IN­SIDER TIP: Be sure to look out for our fa­vorite in­struc­tors—julie D, Jade, and Noah F. Var­i­ous lo­ca­tions; soul-cy­cle.com

STU­DIO B BY BANDIER

In the heart of the Flat­iron District is the go-to store for fit­ness ap­parel—look for lines like Alala or one-off col­labs with the likes of Nike. Nes­tled up­stairs is the gem of the op­er­a­tion: a con­tem­po­rary fit­ness stu­dio that blends mu­sic, fash­ion, and fit­ness. 164 Fifth Ave., 917-408-4617; bandier.com/stu­dio-b

YOGA FOR BAD PEO­PLE

These re­treats are the per­fect way to stretch out while still stay­ing fit. Fol­low @yo­gafor­bad­peo­ple to track the re­treats. Var­i­ous lo­ca­tions; yo­gafor­bad­peo­ple.com
