Spiked Spin

10 Hanover Square, (732) 903-8515

Boost your physical and mental health at Spiked Spin, where strength, confidence, and self-awareness are celebrated just as much as working out.

Spin instructors double as DJs as they use the energy of the room to craft an upbeat hip-hop playlist that’ll make your ride more bearable – and actually, pretty fun.  

Aqua Studio

78 Franklin Street, (212) 966-6784

This boutique aqua-cycling studio is tucked deep inside a sleek TriBeCa storefront and offers a variety of saltwater spin classes. Set at a calming 84 degrees Fahrenheit, the saltwater pool is lit by candlelight, so you’ll enjoy an atmospheric workout that detoxifies, strengthens, and restores.


21 West 46th Street, (917) 388-3190

Founded by three friends on the principle that exercise fosters community, Swerve Fitness classes mix high-energy spinning with teamwork. They offer private, group, and charity sessions, and they’ll give you your first two classes for 40 dollars.

1658 Third Avenue, (212) 289-1110

Crank’s musically driven spin classes let you decide how much choreography you want in your workout. Try their Exhilarate class for a ride that feels like a dance party, or their Crank Power class for an intense, total-body experience. All classes bring a contagious energy!

Monster Cycle

47 West 20th Street, (212) 691-6660

Dubbed “a nightclub with bikes” by co-owner Michael Macneal, Monster Cycle is part spin studio, part punk art installation. The studio is designed around the color black to put an emphasis on the music videos that play during every class to keep you motivated. Come for the atmosphere, stay for the supportive instructors!

There’s no shortage of spinning studios in New York City, but not all of them care about your mental health. Our list factors in atmosphere in addition to class type and instructor style, so you can reference it when you’re feeling physically or mentally burned out.
