Fitness at the Moxy (8)

Brand new boutique hotel on the block, Moxy Times Square, has added to its’ coolness factor by offering complimentary fitness classes to hotel guests and NY locals alike. Not only that, but they’ve made sure to offer only the most cutting edge classes to make their classes the coveted place to be at 7:30 AM on Fridays!

#SWEATatMoxy takes place on the hotel’s rooftop terrace, Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge, a space operated by Nightlife connoisseurs, the TAO Group, on the largest all-season hotel rooftop in NYC. The space is breathtaking and offers panoramic views of Manhattan. You almost feel like you’re on the Empire State Building, Sleepless in Seattle eat your heart out!

The program, run by the hotel’s Culture Director, taps into the “it” city workout of the moment. That workout kicks off with modelFIT for October, which I was fortunate enough to preview before everyone else. The class targets small, stabilizing muscle groups time and time again until your body is at the utmost fatigue. In November, the program will continue with box + flow, an intense combination of boxing and power flow. The class focuses on energy, breath, movement and music to create balance. Each month a different studio will be introduced to keep the workouts fresh and relevant.

According to Mitchell Hochberg, President of Lightstone, Moxy Times Square’s developer,“#SWEATatMoxy complements the hotel’s ‘play on’ spirit. While the rooftop may provide for chaos in the PM, #SWEATatMoxy will offer guests and locals an oasis in the AM.”

If there was ever such an incentive to get up at the crack of dawn on a Friday, doing a chic workout on a rooftop is it. Get ready to detox to retox and I’m sure I’ll see you there!
