Not photos from fitness studios, but from residential buildings Not photos from fitness studios, but from residential buildings
Barely a week into the new year, resolutions to get in shape or take up a new activity are still going strong (no pun intended). City gyms typically see a spike at this time of year, and New York is full of specialty studios catering to any number of sports and hobbies. However, certain people don’t need to leave home to take advantage of this, making it a little easier to keep their resolutions. Not only do these buildings offer gyms with cardio and strength equipment, but they also include sports courts to take things to the next level.

Below, see a selection of the most state-of-the-art active amenities in New York City buildings. Additionally, if you’re not comfortable working out in front of your neighbors, we offer a selection of listings with flexible floor plans that allow for home gyms.

555-West-22nd-Street-01 Pilates room (Related Companies, Olson Kundig and RAMSA via M18)
As activities like yoga and Pilates have increased in popularity, residential developers have started to include separate movement studios in their fitness centers to accommodate mat-based workouts. However, The Cortland takes this to the next level by offering a dedicated Pilates studio with reformers and specialty equipment that allows for more involved sessions.

Basketball Court
378-West-End-Avenue-01 Basketball court (Compass)
All common spaces at 378 West End Avenue include copper alloy door handles and advanced air filtration systems, the better to cut down on germs and make residents feel more comfortable gathering. Among them is an indoor half basketball court that allows residents to up their game regardless of the weather.

Tennis Court
30-Front-Street-01 Tennis court (Sotheby's International Realty)
Sail-shaped tower Olympia makes a dramatic skyline statement in DUMBO, and the apartments and amenities are positioned to make the most of spectacular views. Among them is a private outdoor tennis court, the highest of its kind in New York and directly overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge. To further up one's game, the building also offers a state-of-the-art gym by Gronk Fitness.

Squash Court
138-Willoughby-Street-01 Squash court (Evan Joseph)
All over New York, a number of luxury buildings have incorporated squash courts into their amenity packages. Brooklyn Point takes that one step further with a court designed by InteractiveSQUASH, which tracks every move, offers real-time coaching, and allows players to log their progress in an app.

252-South-Street-01 Bowling alley (Evan Joseph)
Throughout New York, condos and rentals alike have added bowling lanes to their amenity packages. These allow groups to line up and get a game in without leaving home. However, the two-lane bowling alley at One Manhattan Square encourages a stronger spirit of competition.

Rock Climbing
60-Riverside-Boulevard-01 Rock climbing wall (Compass)
Before the Waterline Club at Waterline Square was completed, The Aldyn set new standards for the Far West Side with its extensive amenity package. This includes a 38-foot-high rock climbing wall in the La Palestra-curated fitness center.

53-West-53rd-Street-01 Sports simulator (DBOX)
Traditional golf simulators offer the ability to play the world's most famous golf courses without leaving home. However, the aboutGOLF simulator at 53W53 goes even further to up one's game by offering three-dimensional objects within the game that affect play. Also, if one doesn't feel like golfing today, it offers a number of add-ons that can be played with additional equipment.
