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.

While kids gambol through the jungle gym, educators present hands-on learning experiences with actual wildlife, including fire-bellied toads, a bearded dragon, and other small reptiles. Beyond playtime, the center offers an enrichment program designed to prepare children for preschool, as well as summer camp, birthday parties, and private music lessons.
