Soul Cycle’s wellness recipe (one part spinning class, one part dance party, one part therapy session) makes exercise an easy pill to swallow. There are no membership fees, so locals and tourists alike are welcome. You may even spot a celeb – Jake Gyllenhaal is known to take a class from time to time.

First timers get one class at the reduced rate of $20. There are also package deals available if you plan to take multiple classes.
