There’s never a shortage of places to get your sweat on in NYC — and now, you have these new options.

AKT In Motion
244 E. 84th St., fourth floor, 212-858-0305

Ana Kaiser has worked her magic on Shakira, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kelly Ripa. Her super-swank new studio is the home base for her AKT class, a blend of cardio, strength-training, toning and stretching. Classes boast fun names like AKTease (for beginners) and S&M (90-minute dance intervals). Classes are $35 each.

Studio 360
557 Third Ave., second floor, 212-696-9360

The motto at this Murray Hill cycling and yoga studio is what goes around comes around — literally. Spin your wheels on your bike (or get into downward dog) and $1 per student per class is donated to a charity that the staff chooses each month. We’re psyched to try a combo class: 40 minutes of cycling followed by 20 minutes of yoga designed specifically for bikers. Each class is $27 and includes shoes, your mat, towels and water.

Lyons Den Power Yoga
279 Church St., third floor, no phone number yet

Bethany Lyons, one of the original SoulCycle instructors (meaning she was there before SoulCycle was officially “a thing”), is opening her own power yoga studio in Tribeca next week. She’ll still teach at SoulCycle, but her new studio will offer sweaty (90 degree!) yoga classes that run 60 and 90 minutes.
