Argentina?born soccer enthusiast Gustavo Szulansky opened Super Soccer Stars to provide the boroughs with a program that championed the personal development of youngsters rather than solely a skill-based focus. Since its debut in 2000, it's grown throughout the city, helping countless youngsters learn teamwork, boost confidence, and decrease arguments during home games played on the dining-room table. This rapid growth is due in part to the positive values Gustavo instilled from the first class. His coaches are carefully selected for their ability to cultivate a noncompetitive, sensitive approach to learning the game, and they dole out their knowledge in both classes and camps. Super Soccer Star's Kick & Play program features family-friendly classes that help tots 12?24 months old develop pre-soccer skills and physical skill sets simultaneously. During classes, a team of talented and enthusiastic instructors and an athletic duo of puppet friends named Mimi and Pepe buoy budding soccer players with positive reinforcement, individual attention, and the merry clickety-clack of cleated tap dances. Designed with the help of early-childhood specialists, each age-specific class helps players build skills at their own pace with positive reinforcement, individual attention, and engaging original music.

Donna Rubin and Jennifer Lobo have extensive experience in Bikram yoga. Donna, a former Broadway performer, noticed that actors, musicians, and stagehands had little space to stretch and warm up before their performances. In turn, she chose the theater district for her flagship BIkram Yoga studio built in 1998, when Bikram was just gaining in popularity. The first Bikram Yoga NYC location soon blossomed into seven yoga rooms spread across four locations, and all are covered in Flotex anti-microbial flooring. This waterproof flooring protects against germs more effectively than than wood floors or cooties shots. Hygiene is important when practicing Bikram yoga, as the increased temperatures cause participants to work up a healthy sweat. On the flipside, Jennifer has an athletic background, with experience in everything from marathons to soccer and tennis. She also worked as the communications director for IMG—a powerful force in the world of sports marketing. Together, Rubin and Lobo produced the very first Yoga Asana Championship in New York. They continue to do so each year while leading a team of more than 70 certified instructors who host nearly 300 classes each week, making it convenient for clients to fit sessions in to busy schedules.

The spinning wheels of a bicycle take on greater meaning at SoulCycle Union Square. The goal isn’t just a full-body workout or shedding buckets of sweat, but rather to create a “cardio sanctuary” where riders can clear their minds and find inspiration while riding in candlelight. In the Union Square branch of this popular nationwide exercise chain, 57 bikes support up to 13 lessons per day that incorporate core training and upper body work with up to 5-pound weights. However, it’s the community aspect of the workout that has helped make the place one of the hottest trends at the moment. Participation can be a serious financial commitment, and reservations are a must for peak-hour sessions, but there’s certainly no shortage of happy customers willing to pay the price, especially when celebrities like Jake Gyllenhaal clip into the pedals next to you.

In a freshly renovated space that Well+Good called "minimalist … with elbow room," practitioners at Sacred Sounds Yoga pair flowing movements with mindful breathing—all without touching the ground. Aqua-colored aerial silks cradle students in hammock-like embraces as they perform controlled postures, inversions, and straitjacket escapes during Unnata aerial yoga, just one of the many yoga modalities offered at Sacred Sounds. Certified teachers also lead candlelit flow yoga for cancer patients and survivors, and the studio hosts tai chi classes and workshops for tai chi immersion or body detoxes. To stay connected to the community, Sacred Sounds donates a portion of its proceeds to charity.
