An intense workout can lead to an endorphin rush. Members of Sky Club Fitness & Spa get this rush—along with a rush from elevation—every time they work out near a window. That's because the gym looks out over the New York City skyline. This epic vista follows them as they step out onto the sky deck to lounge in the sun. On the top floor, windows peek out at the horizon near an Olympic-size saltwater pool. In the lower floors, members work out on rows of cardio machines and free weights—alone, with friends, or under the guidance of a personal trainer. They also forge muscles during group fitness classes that range from cycling to boxing and unpacking heavy boxes. After a tough workout, they gather quietly in the European bath to detox or ease their lactic acid buildup with a massage.

Starfish Aquatic Club doesn't exist within a single building; rather, it connects a network of pools and veteran instructors with students aged 6 months and older for lessons that develop and hone vital swimming skills. Instruction primarily occurs in private lessons for kids or adults, which feature one-on-one in-water instruction doled out in 20- to 30-minute chunks. Instructors also schedule small-group lessons for kids, focusing on general technique progression with no more than four students at once. Their parent-child class gives caregivers the opportunity to splash around with kids, though all other lessons prohibit moms and dads from being in the pool at the same time to avoid distracting the youths with retro swimwear. Typically, full sessions take place once a week for four weeks. Instructors also hold pay-as-you-go lessons for those who only want a couple of days of instruction.

A body that works out will become healthier, but a mind that gets bored will stop taking its body to the gym. Luckily, people find it easy to stay interested in exercise at The Club at Morristown, which houses a range of cardio equipment, weight training machines, fitness classes, and a lap pool that together create innumerable ways to get in shape. The in-house staff of trainers and nutritionists assess each member’s health and lifestyle for free when they first join the gym, helping them set realistic goals and create habits that will help them achieve those goals. And by partaking of the gym’s many classes—such as hip hop dance, spin, boxing, and powerlifting—guests can push through plateaus and prevent the workout boredom that leads to decreased motivation and a higher likelihood of creating a fort with the gym’s magazine subscriptions. For exercise sans electronics, the facility also features a 30-yard sprint track and a functional training area.

Instead of being surrounded by hard cement or concrete, Idlewild Pool re-creates a beach atmosphere with a sandy shore that gradually descends into a community swim space. Beyond a set of ropes, the sandy bottom falls away and the pool begins. For those who don?t want to feel the sand between their toes, a water slide and diving board offer an alternative way to splash in. Certified lifeguards are on duty to ensure a safe environment and swimming lessons can help train paddlers how to propel themselves through the water. Idlewild also provides a venue for picnics, barbecues, and birthday parties.

In three different pools across New Jersey and Pennsylvania, young swimmers are always seen splashing, learning, and reaching swimming goals. That's because they're students of Aquatics Academy, where a 2-to-1 instructor-student ratio gives kids the attention they need to develop strong water skills. The Instructors bring with them 8 to 23 years of teaching experience each, with a special knack for motivating and inspiring. Of course, kids aren't the only ones they're helping brush up on their techniques. Adult swim lessons are also available.
