Anyone can drop $35 for a single class at one of the city's fancy boutique gyms. But now, there's an even better way to induce Instagram envy among the fashion-slash-fitness set: Work out at the super-secret, invite-only 45 Grand.

WWD reports that since April, a select few fashion editors and "social media mavens" have been plucked from the front row of SoulCycle and invited to take Tuesday and Thursday yoga, barre, HIIT and Nike + Run Club jogs at 45 Grand, a Nike Training Center named for its Soho address.

Though the only evidence of its existence remains on Twitter and Instagram, there are plenty of clues that give away just how fancy this gym is. First, each guest's locker is personalized with a digital screen bearing their name:

And the mirrors are practically begging to be selfied:

Oh, and Karlie Kloss shows up there sometimes:

Not that you'll ever have to worry about all that, however, because 45 Grand is By Appointment Only, as its signage so clearly displays:
