Forget Hamilton—the hottest thing on New York City’s West 46th Street is about to be a cycling studio. Swerve Fitness, the city’s first team-inspired cycling studio, is expanding—and we mean really expanding.
The studio is opening a second Manhattan location this spring, and it’s going to be massive. Situated just south of Rockefeller Center at 21 West 46th Street (between Fifth and Sixth Avenues), it’s perfect for Midtown workers looking to dash out for a sweaty lunch break. The new 6,000-square-foot flagship will be double the size of its original Flatiron studio, with a 60-bike studio and amenities galore.
“Over the past two years we’ve been focused on creating a space that fosters relationships and is centered around accomplishing fitness goals and having fun,” says Eric Posner, co-founder of Swerve Fitness. “This has resonated with our riders, our community has grown, and we’re excited to open a space twice the size to welcome new riders.”
It’s not just the bikes that will be expanding their footprint; there’s also a 1,500-square-foot private women’s lounge with six showers (meaning you’re less likely to be late to work because you were waiting for an open stall), while the men’s room will have five. Plus, you can get your post-ride drink at the smoothie and coffee bar.
So basically you’ve got more space to sweat, shower, and sip your smoothie. Now that’s certainly worth a standing ovation. —Alison Feller
