We're already almost a week into 2018, but if your healthy January plan has been somewhat slow to launch, here’s a little boost: Some of our favorite NYC workout spots are making it easier to commit by slashing prices, offering prizes or even showing up directly at your place. (And we won’t tell anyone if your “year” starts tomorrow.)
Commit to the rowing studio (located in Union Square and on the Upper East Side) with its bronze (four classes), silver (eight classes) or gold (unlimited) monthly memberships during the month of January, and receive 18 percent off your first month with code 18OFF. Memberships require an initial commitment of three months—but as erg devotees will tell you, the low-impact full-body workout might make a lifelong rower out of you.
While not technically a New Year’s deal, if you’ve got a flexible schedule, check out the cycling house’s "Ridin’ 9 to 5" package, which offers five rides at $100 for a 45-minute weekday session at 9:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. or 5 p.m. at any of its four Manhattan locations. (And you thought sweatpants were the best perk of working from home.)
Exceed Physical Culture
Stock up on classes with 18 percent off the functional-fitness studio’s 10-, 20- and 30-class packages with promo code NY18. Redeem online or in person at its Upper East Side or Tribeca locations…then get ready to do some burpees and box jumps.
Head to the barre with Pop Physique’s “New Year New Butt” (heh) deal, which runs $129 for six classes (usually $32 each). Classes expire 90 days from first use at either studio (NoMad and Bowery), but we bet you’ll be too into the glute-toning effects to let that happen.
Look, we all know working out “for your health” isn’t exactly the most enticing of motivations. So for those of us who need extra incentive, every ten rides at one of Swerve’s soon-to-be three Manhattan locations will automatically earn you rewards like credits at the smoothie bar, extra rides or branded swag.
Not exactly keen on the idea of trekking through the snow in search of bicycle crunches? The positivity-charged women's-only fitness studio just introduced at-home personal training with an initial session of only $100.
The inclusive, affordable gym chain wants you to throw out your resolutions. No, that doesn't mean throwing your Nikes in the trash—it means getting rid of unrealistic expectations and instead focusing on attainable goals that make you feel great. To celebrate, Blink's throwing a party at its Bryant Park location on Monday, January 8, where you can enter to win free personal training sessions or swag.
Or hey, forget the studios entirely and save 45 percent off an annual plan with Aaptiv, the cult-fave app that features audio workouts by certified trainers for running, strength training and even meditation. After an initial 30-day free trial, the following months cost only $8.33, a fraction of what you’d pay for a private session. Worried you’ll get bored? Over 30 new workouts are added each week.
