Just because you’re on the road doesn’t mean you should leave your workout routine behind. There are plenty of ways to stay fit while you’re staying in NYC. Here’s where to exercise while you’re staying in Tribeca.
You’re sure to recognize the name of this gym giant that has taken the fitness world by storm, and when you stay at the Duane Street Hotel you can experience it first hand. Guests enjoy a complimentary pass to Equinox’s Tribeca location, so get sweaty with some of the city’s favorite classes like pilates and yoga.

If you want to workout like a New Yorker, check out The Dogpound—a no nonsense gym on the border of Hudson Square and Tribeca with a cult-like following. While it isn’t cheap (group classes start at $42 and a private hour-long session with the owner will set you back a cool $500) it has a reputation for having some of the best trainers and training regimens in the city.
The Dogpound. 1 Renwick St, New York, NY. (646) 620-6533
Only a couple blocks from the Duane Street Hotel, Hudson River Park is the place to go if you like to workout outdoors. If running is your thing, the park’s path stretches northward all the way to the George Washington Bridge.

A unique combination of Crossfit and yoga makes The Class the place to go when you’re in need of a sweat. You’ll go from poses to push-ups to planks and beyond during the hour-long cardio and soul stimulating session. The Class is known to have a celebrity following—so don’t be surprised to see Naomi Watts on the mat next to you.
