With all of these workout options, don't neglect your body’s need to stretch. Stop by Bryant Park and join a Tuesday morning or Thursday evening yoga session between May 19th and September 22nd. Presented by Athleta, these complementary outdoor classes are the perfect way to prepare your mind for a big day, or wind down after a stressful one. As a bonus, Athleta also provides yoga mats for you, so you don’t have to drag yours around all day or (shudder) bring it on the subway. Learn more here.
If you can't trust yourself to walk in and out of a store without buying something, we highly recommend exercising all caution when visiting Studio B at Bandier. But if you can walk past a pair of the most beautiful spandex you've ever seen and shrug, then Bandier's newly opened, spacious workout studio could, and should, soon be graced with your sweat. The studio, located in Bandier’s flagship Flatiron store, can fit up to 75 class-goers, and invites fitness instructors to host their own classes in the space. Most workouts will cost you, but the studio has also become a popular hotspot for free popup fitness classes -- so keep your eyes peeled for freebies, because you'll want to RSVP fast. Book at class at Studio B here.
