First, Buy a Sweatband

New heated workouts that make Bik­ram look boring.

  • Hot Figure 4

  • Pure Yoga

    203 E. 86th St., nr. Third Ave.; 212-360-1888; $25 per class

    Pure Yoga’s Figure 4 class was already one of the hardest of the ballet-bar bunch. Now they’re upping it, teaching in a 105-degree room.

  • Hot Pilates

  • Crunch

    113 Fourth Ave., at 12th St.; 212-533-0001; from $80 for monthly membership

    Though it strays from the classic mat Pilates form, this hourlong midsection-focused class taught in a 100-degree room will likely leave your face red for an hour and your abs sore for days.

  • Hot Gravity Surfing

  • David Barton

    215 W. 23rd St., nr. Seventh Ave.; 212-414-2022; monthly member­ship from $128

    This Vinyasa-style class taught in a 100-degree room incorporates the inversion-heavy sequences that flex the same muscles as you would while hanging ten.

  • Band ReDesign

  • Tracy Anderson

    24 Hubert St., nr. Greenwich St., third fl.; 212-965-1408; membership rates upon request

    The full-body workout incorporates resistance bands and an 86-degree room to instantly warm up those less-worked muscles.
