Last week, we noted how smart Cyc Fitness is for partnering up with other fitness facilities (like DavidBartonGym) in order to reduce costs. That's what's allowing them to add ten new locations throughout the country by the end of next year, including its second New York studio at The Row NYC hotel.
It's the brand's first partnership with a hotel, and its 3,000-square-foot studio on the edge of Times Square will feature 50 bikes, a dedicated entrance, and access to locker rooms and showers.
And while hotel guests have the convenience of charging rides to their room bills, that shouldn't discourage uptowners who don't want to make the trek down to Noho from attending. Look out for an opening date in the early months of 2015.
