The Nofar Method
For those who are looking for a creative and fun take on Pilates classes, you’ll want to check out the Nofar Method studio on West 18th.

New York, NY 10011
Forward Space is self-described as a “euphoric hybrid of movement that is equal parts cardio dance, athletic training and moving meditation.” If that doesn’t pique your interest, what will? The space is dimly lit and calming and the semi-darkness gives a sense of privacy for those who don’t like to be on display while they move. The intensive cardio and strength training workouts will get you in great shape for 2022 and leave you feeling both physically and mentally renewed and ready to tackle the day!

Equinox Printing House
The Equinox Printing House takes the concept of a gym to the next level. The sprawling space, spread out over several floors, offers a plethora of cardio and strength machines, props, personal training, and a loaded schedule of classes that run the gamut from yoga to boot camp. While you’re there, try out the luxury Zen Suite for a little mental clarity and load up on the heavenly Kiehel’s products in the locker room. But one of the main perks of membership is the beautiful rooftop pool (while maybe less tantalizing in January, it’s still worth popping up to the deck to take in the skyline views).
