The price for an individual class at some of the city's hottest boutique fitness studios is typically around the mid-$30s. For example, a session at Brooklyn Bodyburn is $33, SoulCycle is $34, and the Fhitting Room is $35. A few, however, are inching closer and closer to the $40 mark.

Right now, an indoor rowing class at Brooklyn Crew is one of the most expensive at $38. Flex Studios, which offers Pilates, barre, and TRX, just got on that level. An email sent around to clients informs: "While we've operated for more than two years without a price increase, in order to continue to offer you the same experience you've come to expect, we'll be slightly increasing our prices."

And even the cheapie gyms aren't safe: Blink in Noho just upped its monthly price to $25, from $20.
