Urban Fitness Oasis

New York City has so much to offer -- Amazing gyms are no exception.

The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers could be the ultimate super gym.

What's a super gym?

At the Sports Center, there are 100 cardio machines in the 6,000-square-foot cardio training area. Near by, in the fitness studios, you can choose from 140 classes per week. What's more? There is a pool, a big one at that (6-lane, 25-yard), which is a rareity for most NYC gyms. It has everything from rock climbing walls to sundecks to childcare facilities to adventure travel opportunities. Still need more? There is a boxing ring, an indoor sand volleyball court a juice and sushi bar and spa.

You name it, they offer it and if you're like most New Yorkers, living a New York minute, you'll appreciate the one stop gym experience. Watch out though, because like almost everything in NYC, it's pretty expensive: $450 initiation fee; $154 per month. For more information check out The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers Site.

Fit's Tip: Be sure to check out the views. The pools wall to wall windows offer amazing views of the Hudson River and downtown Manhattan. If you're not lucky enough to live in NYC but will be visiting, a guest pass is $50.
