Much like the climate and the cost of a pickle, Sport Fit facility features vary by location, but all three locations harbor vast vaults of workout equipment and group classes. During your 30 consecutive days of training montage, mold and shape muscles into the clenched face of your favorite World’s Strongest Man with dozens of machines and free weights. Otherwise, stride onto the tennis, racquetball, or basketball court and win back legal ownership of your pancreas from that fast-talking vice president. Those who benefit from cardiovascular camaraderie can buoy spirits and sink flab with group fitness classes such as salsa, karate, functional fitness boot camp, and cycling.

New York Sports Clubs, part of Towns Sports International's network of fitness loci, welcomes exercisers to a number of equipment-stocked facilities to help attain perspiration-soaked fitness goals at a convenient location. Strength-training gear such as circuit machines, free weights, and medicine balls filled with black holes mold muscles into chiseled depictions of physical might. Calories simmer and move to cooler climates after sessions on cardio machines ranging from treadmills and ellipticals to upright and recumbent stationary bicycles. Each club offers a schedule of group classes that draw from more than 100 fitness styles, including Pilates, yoga, and boxing, to keep members from jazzercising without a spotter. Each location thanks exercisers for sweating in its vicinity with special features, such as babysitting, though Passport memberships do not include pool access.
No Excuse Workout is a full-service health and fitness club that provides a motivating and friendly gym atmosphere, as well as up-to-date equipment and classes. At this functional space, gym-goers can run on treadmills, climb up Stair Masters, and lift free weights before punching away stress at the onsite boxing ring. Five personal trainers help clients get customized and tangible results, and there's plenty of free group classes taught in the studio. The teachers help students dance away calories in upbeat Zumba classes, or try circuit training or yoga—there's even a belly dancing class. The gym further demonstrates its ability to accommodate diverse guests with a relaxing onsite sauna, plenty of resistance-training equipment and tanning beds, and a pro shop. Here, patrons can buy exercise equipment and nutritional supplements—which, if bought in large enough quantities, can be lifted just like dumbbells for strength training.
When not hosting the 10th-largest adult hockey league in the United States, The Gardens Ice House opens its three full-size rinks and one mini rink for public skating sessions seven days a week. Upon arrival, revelers visit the rental desk to select hockey or figure skates, or one of each in attempts to perfect the elusive salchow-wall-check combo. A kindly staff of zamboni jockeys keeps the spacious, glass-lined rinks slick and mirroresque. After skating up appetites, speedsters can grab bites to eat and start conversations with a coffee machine at The Gardens’ Ice Breaker Cafe.
