A forerunner of the boutique workout class, SoulCycle is a must for those getting started on the NYC workout scene. Its cult following isn't unwarranted: funky tap-backs and ab work make it feel like way more than just a spinning class. While instructors have varying styles - music ranges from hip-hop beats to disco tunes - each of the 45-minute sessions encourage riders to push past their mental as well as physical limits. The Kiehl's and Drunk Elephant products in the bathrooms here also make getting ready after a morning workout all the more appealing.
