New York City’s 11 best bachelorette party workouts


1/13

305 fitnessWedding season is upon us, and you know what that means. (No, not scheduling extra meditation sessions, but hopefully you’re already all over that.) Bachelorette weekends!

While drinking and dancing are still pretty standard, lots of brides today also want some fitness or yoga to factor into their party plans. It’s a trend that makes total sense given how chock full our social lives are with all kinds of healthy activities.

So, whether you’re a bride-to-be or a maid-of-honor master planner, we rounded up the best workouts around New York City for the occasion. All of them are great for groups and take the fun aspect of fitness very seriously—from dance party classes that will get everyone ready for reception dance floor to workouts that appeal to very type of bride, from barre maven and yogi to jock.

Here are the best places in Manhattan (in no particular order) to celebrate the end of single life by getting really sweaty. No fiancés allowed. —Jamie McKillop
