3 (more!) fitness studios opening in Manhattan this November

New York PilatesMany of the 13 fitness studios we told you were coming to New York City this fall have officially opened—from Row House in Chelsea to AKT in Motion in Nomad—but guess what?

In the two months since we did our forecasting, even more new players have emerged.

And these three November newcomers are all pretty damn exciting, proving that Pilates really is here to stay, and that small bootcamp brands with devoted followers can find permanent homes (despite the horror that is the Manhattan real estate market).

Instead of mourning Drill Fitness’ recent closing, try sweating at one of these shiny spots this month. —Lisa Elaine Held

New York Pilates founder Heather Andersen takes her modern, NYU student-approved approach to the storied discipline to Soho, with a second location that’s twice the size of her Washington Square Park location.

The sun-drenched loft space is gorgeous thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, white brick walls, and exposed beams. Two workout rooms have high-tech studio lighting, DJ-created playlists, and a crazy packed schedule.

“We understand New Yorkers’ complicated schedules and offer 55 minute classes every half hour from 7:00 a.m. till 9:30 p.m.—up to 25 Reformer classes per day,” Andersen says. “More than any other Pilates studio in NYC.”

It’s a big deal and a great sign when a celebrity Pilates guru like Alycea Ungaro opens a second studio. The Pilates pioneer’s pretty new space can accommodate more of the city’s fitness (and Pilates) obsessed. The bright, airy feel from white-washed brick, light wood, and plants serves to spotlight the equipment—from Cadillac and Reformers to tower stations and chairs. Many of which should be on your to-do list.

Like at her Tribeca flagship, the studio offers private sessions as well as a variety of group classes, like reformer, SpringTone, and a combo platter class that uses the tower, mat, and props and got me sweaty (and even a little sore) in no time.

“It’s been a long time coming, and I think it’s just the right time,” says Prince Brathwaite, of his first Trooper Fitness studio, which will open later this month in the former Pablo Fitness space.

Brathwaite is a motivation master who’s built a crazy loyal following offering his bootcamp and strength-training classes in parks and rented spaces around the city over the last few years.

His permanent home will include two workout rooms—one for hard-core strength work (i.e. barbells), and one for sports conditioning/bootcamp classes, with features like a turf lane, monkey bars, sleds, and ropes. Now he’ll be able to expand the number of classes he offers and implement more individualized programs for people working towards specific goals—and yes, there will be showers.

If Pilates and bootcamps aren’t your style, perhaps you’d prefer treadmill running in the Flatiron or tucking and pulsing at the barre in the Financial District?
