When getting ready to travel out to New York City this year I was more excited then usual for my workouts because with my class pass membership I knew I would also be able to use it in the city. What does this mean? Well it meant I would get to try a ton of new studios for free! So then the question would be which ones to try? My trip this go around was 7 days in the city, some days of pure work mixed with some days of vacation. On my workdays I had to stick to my hotel due to early morning meetings and lets be honest, freezing cold temperatures that were not welcoming to walk at 6:00 am. However once Wednesday came around and I was officially done with meetings the workout fun began! So what does a week of working out in NYC look like for me?
Sunday: 7 mile Treadmill Run at Ink 48 hotel Gym, NYC
Monday: 6 mile Treadmill Run at Ink 48 hotel Gym, NYC
Tuesday: 6 mile Treadmill Run at Ink 48 hotel Gym, NYC
Wednesday: 5 Mile Treadmill Run at at Ink 48 hotel Gym, NYC and 60 minute Rowing Class at Row House at W 59th St
Thursday: 45 minute Spin Class at Flywheel Sports followed by a 1 hour Fly Barre Class in the Flatiron District
Friday: 45 minute Spin Class at Peloton at W 23rd Street
Saturday: The Monster Cycle + Studio in Soho on Lafayette Street
Sunday: 5 mile Treadmill Run at the local YMCA in Bed-Sty, Brooklyn
Monday: 45 minute Spin Class at BRKlyn Cycle in Brooklyn
In general I ended up doing more cardio then I would usually, but in a city that has so many amazing spinning studios how could I not. One of my biggest issues with the San Francisco workout scene is our lack of innovative and unique studios, especially when it comes to cardio like spinning. As for the studios I tried I actually ended up really liking all of them, obviously some more then others. My top picks of the week though would be #1 Peloton, #2 Flywheel (as always), and #3 The Monster Cycle + Studio. I plan on going into detail on each place in my next post, so check back if you are looking for more details on the places!
