Think about this, you’ve got a new job that requires you to move to New York City. Summer is around the corner, which means everyone and their grandmother are getting ready to show off their summer bodies. You’ll need to find an apartment that allows you to enjoy the warmer weather and keep up with your active lifestyle. Luckily for you, you’re moving to a city that has beautiful parks, gyms on basically every city block, and apartment buildings with state-of-the-art gyms included as amenities.
X Marks the Spot
We all know searching for your future home is a very important decision, so when you factor in your active lifestyle that search can become even more stressful.
Simplify your search by letting your Triplemint agent know that you need a gym in your future apartment building. “Start by looking for a building with a doorman, that pretty much guarantees your building will have a gym in the building,” recommends Josh Juneau.
So Much Room For Activities

There are places in New York City that offer you gyms well worth the money you’ll be spending on rent. From tennis courts to Olympic-sized pools or yoga and meditation rooms, there’s a range of fitness amentities offered across NYC’s luxury apartment buildings.
Some boast gyms designed for those focused on strength training, while others offer a full spa experience with saunas and steam rooms to sweat out all those NY toxins. One building even offers a rock climbing wall for those not content to stay on the ground.
Pump It Up
Finding the perfect gym is like finding the perfect apartment. You have to make sure the price is right and that the other gym members (aka your neighbors) are friendly and nice. You want an apartment that meets all the standards you’re looking for, and the same goes for the gym you want to sign up for.
If you’re strictly looking for an apartment with a gym in the building, make sure you ask about the gym’s hours. The gym’s opening hours and variety of equipment are things to keep in mind when choosing your apartment. If the gym closes early or barely has any equipment to get a solid workout in, then you may have to start looking for locals gyms in the area.
On the Hunt
Zeroing in on the Upper West Side for your apartment hunt may be the best idea if you want to run, bike, or rollerblade outdoors.
With Central Park and Riverside Park right by you, you’ll be able to work up a nice sweat before or after work or on the weekends when the weather is good. Grab your bike and enjoy the gorgeous tree-filled scenery of Central Park or the stunning waterfront views from Riverside Park.
If you want to stay downtown and close to the Financial District, you have the luxury of being next to Battery Park and Elevated Acre, or a short run to the famous Brooklyn Bridge.
