During all 365 days of the year, Fusion Fitness Clubs buzzes with patrons sweating in fitness classes, burning fat on cardio machines, and building muscle on weight-training equipment. As 35 treadmills, ellipticals, and Arc trainers whirr, muscles fortify with free weights and weight-training machinery. The dedicated trainers lead spinning sessions upon the seats of Schwinn Evolution bikes, and heart-thumping Latin-inspired music kick-starts aerobic dance moves in Zumba classes. Boot camps sculpt physiques with a rotating lineup of body-toning routines, and yoga classes lead bodies through poses to increase strength, flexibility, and the ability to impersonate a Celtic knot.
A private women's section hosts ladies-only workouts, so gals can further secretly discuss their plot to take over the world as they break a sweat. During one-on-one personal training sessions, certified trainers tailor curricula to best suit each client's goals, after gauging health and fitness levels in an initial complimentary assessment and thumb-wrestling match. After slashing calories solo or in group classes, patrons can refuel at the smoothie bar with natural snacks and sips.
An uncomplicated layout of exposed brick, open windows, and exercise equipment sends a clear message: Soma Health Clubs doesn't want to pigeonhole its members. Instead, the gym encourages visitors to work out however they'd like. The group class curriculum speaks to this flexibility, with sessions that range from high-intensity kickboxing to Zumba classes. Rooms located away from the main gym floor are also highly specialized: there's a stationary bicycle room and a beautiful sauna where you can drag your treadmill for an especially sweaty jog. Additionally, the staff at Soma Health Clubs is fluent in Spanish and English.
Inside The Transform Fitness and Training, a strip of artificial turf runs a six-legged metal frame, hung with punching bags, suspensions harnesses, and ropes. Around this construction stand racks of free weights, medicine balls, and kettlebells. It's the equipment of a gym where the specialty is not specializing. The trainers offer a variety of classes using their brand new space, from pure bodywork such as yoga and Pilates to advanced, equipment-heavy circuit training in boot and glute camps.
At Dahn Yoga's Bronx location, yogis practice mind-body exercises and focused meditation pioneered by founder Ilchi Lee. Before each hour-long class, patient instructors guide students through preliminary warm-ups, including body tapping to trigger blood flow and an abdominal press that kneads out stomach tension and tilts full-abdomen tattoos of flaming pinball machines. Students can gently loosen sinews and build mobility through joint rotations and meridian stretches, and learn martial-arts-esque moves meant to increase awareness. Deep breathing postures aim to engender tranquility, while brain wave vibration exercises meld meditation techniques with rhythmic motion for a more serene cool-down. All classes take place on provided mats in a spacious studio suffused with golden tones, with walls covered in tapestries showing craggy peaks striking eerily perfect mountain poses.
