Top 10 Buildings With Best Gyms

Long gone are the days where the inside, outshines the outside. These high-rises may look unaffordable from the outside, but they hold within them untold luxuries specifically aimed to attract those who, oddly enough, would be hard-pressed to spend their days indoors. Here ye, here ye, all you gymrats and aspiring athletes for New York’s finest rentals, 'sporting' their swankiest pools and the city's best gyms!

#1 - The Encore, 175 West 60th Street

The Ecnore's 50-foot, glass-tiled, lap-pool encased in floor-to-ceiling windows, inviting residents to stay in shape while taking-in spectacular views of the Hudson. The 15-foot oval whirlpool spa, its state-of-the-art fitness center (complete with male and female lockers/ dressing rooms), and its themed, indoor playrooms --should also motivate residents, young and small, to stay active.


#2 - The Olivia, 315 West 33rd Street

Originally known as the Pennmark, The Olivia, boasts a swanky fitness center that sprawls over several floors. It holds a yoga and meditation studio on the seventh floor, a fitness center and a landscaped sundeck with ample sunlight and tanning areas.

In addition to a state-of-the-art workout space on the premise, the 41-story high-rise offers over 50,000 square feet of outdoor amenities for fitness-lovers of any kind. There are two tennis courts, a beach volleyball court, a sunroof for sunbathing, a children's playroom and an onsite dog-run.




#5 - 15 Central Park West

It isn’t surprising that Fifteen Central Park West attracts so many celebrities. The indoor fitness club motto promises meticulously conceived spaces dedicated to the "work and pleasure" of the residents.
