Printing House Fitness + Squash Club  

Printing House Fitness + Squash Club
421 Hudson St., at Leroy St. 212-243-7600, ext. 1

There’s never a note of piped-in music (unless you’re in class), and a trance-inducing whir of elliptical machines fills the air on the penthouse cardio floors. In warmer months, rooftop abs and yoga classes make full use of the sundeck—but who’s to say you can’t just skip working out to lay out by the rooftop pool?
