You can’t beat up your ex at Crunch, but you can kick the crud out of his photo.

These studios’ special workouts will help you grow closer to your sweetie — or show that menacing Cupid who’s boss.

New York Sports Clubs
Master trainer Love — yes, that’s her real name — is behind the new “Tough Love: Bars, Bands & Blindfolds Bootcamp” happening all this month. It’s a dynamic mix of high-intensity intervals, partner relays, blindfolded plyometrics and moves with bands and blindfolds, meant to mimic “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Bring your other half or show up single and ready to sweat with a sexy stranger. Best news: It’s free whether or not you’re a member. Thursdays, 5:15 p.m., NYSC 59th Street & Park Avenue

Crunch
Take out all your aggression at Crunch’s “Ex-Factor” boxing and kickboxing class  Bring a photo of your former flame — the pros will tape it on a mitt and pair you with another resentful romantic so you can get kicking and pounding. It’s a free class, so members can bring friends. Members, sign up online (www.crunch .com); nonmembers, come early to sign up at the front desk. Feb. 14, 7 p.m., Crunch 59th St.

SoulCycle
On Feb. 14, the E. 63rd St. studio is offering blow-outs from Fix Beauty Bar to Soulsters in the 10:30 a.m. class to get them looking hot for the night ahead. There are also couples date-night rides in the Scarsdale, Roslyn and Greenwich studios, and sad cyclists can get their mojo back at the Feb. 14 NoHo studio’s Achy Breaky Heart ride. Sign-ups for all of these classes begin Monday at noon at www.soul-cycle.com — get there right at noon, because spots fill up fast.

Body & Pole
Body & Pole teaches the seductive art of pole dancing, plus a whole lot more: Take this Saturday’s Burlesque Booty class, taught by burlesque performer Peekaboo Pointe, for example. She’ll lead you through a routine for your derriere in a 90-minute class that’s equal parts workout and fun. It’s $25, call 212-334-6900 to sign up.
