The luxury New York gyms where Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss go to work out


15 November 2018

To meet the demands of its toned A-list residents, New York boasts a wide range of gyms and workout spaces with luxury facilities that would rival a 5 star hotel.

For fitness fanatics who want to guarantee their next boutique workout class is Victoria’s Secret Angel approved, there’s an endless range of inventive classes on offer, from ice cold workouts at Brrrn to sweaty, candlelit hip-hop yoga at Y7.

Depending on your level of energy (let’s face it, we all have days when we’d rather lie down on a yoga mat) you can try out specialised reformer pilates, trampoline bouncing at FitHouse or dance at Sculpt Studios. As you might expect, New York’s luxury workout spaces are pretty beautiful places to hang out in too, with high ceilings, skyline views of New York city, juice bars and state-of-the-art ‘recovery areas’ too.

Unlike restaurants and nightclubs, New York’s most exclusive fitness studios don’t have VIP entrances, so you’ll probably end up bumping into a VS Angel or New York socialite after a spin class – hair up, baseball cap on, gaze firmly planted at the floor.
Scroll through to see the best places to get your sweat on in the city, ranging from modelFIT’s dance cardio classes to Rumble Boxing, which was famously frequented by both Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez (although it’s doubtful both attend at the same time these days). Just make sure you obey international gym etiquette rules by not talking to anyone when they’re in the zone.


A new type of low temperature workout ranging from 45-60 degree Fahrenheit with celebrity clients Hannah Bronfman, Ryan Seacrest, and Eva Chen. The studio is kept at low temperatures coupled with low light to ensure the best workout. Afterwards clients can make their way to their communal infrared sauna to warm up.


The studio on Bowery offers sculpting and dance cardio classes with celebrity clients Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss. The facilities include state of the art pilates equipment.
