Best Guy-Friendly Gym Class

  • Core Fusion Sport

    Exhale, 150 Central Park S., nr. Seventh Ave., and two other locations; 212-249-3000

    Most men associate exercise classes with eighties-style choreography done in full makeup or worse (pelvic tilts!). But this hour of intense core training is like a cardio-sculpt class on steroids. Each exercise engages multiple body parts while simultaneously spiking your heart rate. After a sequence of jumpbacks, squats, and twists—all using a wobbly “core” ball to add intensity—laying on the mat to attack legs and glutes with a resistance band almost feels like a respite.
