Northern Westchester is home to countless fitness facilities and gyms. There are sleek brands with a network of locations like Pure Barre and Club Pilates, small private studios like Pilates Pound Ridge, boutique offerings like Corelab in Armonk and newcomer Plank Katonah, and on and on and on.
With the colder months upon us, many will take their outdoor workouts indoors, and are in the market for a fitness facility. Yet with so many options, how do you choose? Convenience is always a factor in where you workout – location is a big deal. Yet with so many category-specific options, it makes sense to consider your goals and match them with a place that aligns in its offerings.
Don’t forget to take your pre- and post-workout routine into account. If you need a shower and a locker room for an outfit change, then a traditional gym with a wide range of programming may be your best bet. It’s also a great option for those who need drop-off childcare while they exercise.
Culture is another major consideration. Does your fitness home feel friendly and inclusive? Does your fitness family set you up for success? A welcoming fitness squad is the best support system. So whether you’re newly into fitness or a seasoned workout enthusiast, there’s no doubt you’ll discover your perfect place among our dynamic fitness community.
