"Tough, but doable." That's how ACE- and AFAA-certified trainer Tara Faye described her teaching style to GoRecess Playground in July 2012, nearly two months after becoming the sole owner of PNT Fitness. There, she and her staff lead high intensity and high energy classes such as Insane Kickbox Camp, Sweat Shop, and A Vicious Cycle, which uses Schwinn stationary bikes. For more communal workouts, they also host a monthly Workout & Wine class that allows exercisers to hang out with their classmates and bench-press barrels of wine after class, a feature that got the class a shout out as one of CBS New York's 6 Best Fitness Classes for a New Year's Resolution. And although PNT Fitness' group classes have received most of the press, the studio also offers personal training that includes nutrition counseling, toning, and agility training as part of a personalized training program.

Heavy bags the size of tree trunks hang from the ceiling of Urban Jungle’s indoor workout room. Along with the pull-up bars that stretch across the space like steely vines, they do the gym’s name justice and make for an effective—if sometimes grueling—workout. Brick walls and a spray-painted logo also contribute to the gym’s urban aesthetic, though students hardly have time to reflect on the decor as they advance through a series of pushups, dips, and pull-ups. The team of trainers designs each fitness program with functional muscle movements in mind, and each of their three-week boot-camp challenges draws on up to 1,000 of those dynamic motions to make every aspect of urban life easier, from sprinting after cabs to lifting them over traffic jams.

Trainers also prepare bodies for self-defense with martial-arts classes that extract the practical fitness elements from weapon- or hand-based fighting disciplines. Three different methods of the Atienza Family System—a Filipino martial art—teach students how to deal with multiple attackers, and cardio-kickboxing classes draw on the principles of muay thai kickboxing to strike fear into calories.

From the outside, it's a humble former school?but step through the century-old structure's doors, and you'll find an always-changing exhibition spotlighting some of today's leading creators of visual art. MoMA PS1 is among the oldest and largest nonprofit contemporary art institutions in the United States, and it's been championing the newest works, artists, genres, and pronunciations of "gouache" since its founding in 1971.

While a shifting kaleidoscope of paintings, photographs, films, and sculptures fills the halls, a few pieces have found a more permanent home at the museum. Visitors can stop by to see works such as A bit of matter and a little bit more, which Lawrence Weiner painted on the doors at PS1's first exhibition; William Kentridge's Stair Procession, which has been waiting for the elevator since 2000; and In the Woods by Ernesto Caivano, an immersive landscape created from paint and paper.

Reflecting the diverse scope and scale of science itself, the exhibits at the New York Hall of Science range from massive NASA rockets to holographic depictions of the infinitesimal atom. Originally built for the 1964 World's Fair to showcase technological advancements, the center has since transformed into an interactive museum and leading innovator in exhibit technology and educational programming that, since 1986, has seen more than 7 million visitors. Today, more than 450 interactive exhibits, along with 3D movies and live daily demonstrations, invite visitors of all ages to explore the world by watching living microbes thrive and evolve in a miniscule zoo, discovering the powerful mathematics hidden in everyday objects, and testing their understanding of physics and Plutonian trash talk in the science playground, along with the mini-golf course inspired by the cosmos. The youngest visitors can also enjoy a developmentally-appropriate science education of their own in Preschool Place.

K2 Boxing Club's professional and IBF-rated trainers condition their students for healthy lifestyles and help them develop skills for bouts in the squared circle. They help hone fitness or sparring skills during one-on-one training sessions and group fitness classes, including their boot-camp sessions that merge interval and strength training. During fight-based fitness, guests can either jog while arguing with each other about Plato or participate in MMA classes that dive into the grappling strategies used by UFC fighters. The onsite boxing ring hosts sparring matches, during which any student can improve his or her skills against a real opponent rather than shadow boxers or borrowed art-museum sculptures. But it's not just about the physical skills students learn—the club's friendly family atmosphere aims to shoo away the intimidation factor from classes.
