The Goldilocks Of Workouts: Top 45 Minute Classes In NYC

Get It. Get Out. Get On With It.


Not too short, not too long, but just right. It’s the goldilocks of workouts and done in 45. The truth is, getting to and from a class is closer to two hours versus one, after showers and travel time. Which, sadly, it is not always doable. Therefore, we’ve created a handy guide to exercise in a flash.

The Well: HEAT
If you, like some of us, have anxiety about workout schedules, this class is genius! A challenging 40-minute total-body circuit built with flexible arrival times that kick-off every 10 minutes — attendees can drop in at any point during the lunchtime session, making this literally THE perfect quick-sesh class. Note: pre-registration is required.

Forward Space: Fire
At 50-minutes (sawrrry, not 45 but had to include because it’s THAT fun) often feels too short. With blasting music (hello, 90s hip-hop!), a dark room, and full adrenaline, you won’t want the workout to end. Sweat is a thing, but nothing a little dry shampoo and t-shirt swap can’t fix to have you on your way.

Lyons Den: Power Yoga
A brief but packed Power Flow practice, set to music (complete with savasana,  is designed for a quick flow when crunched for time. With morning and evening offerings, there's no excuse not to — you’ll be in and out in less than an hour. Keep in mind you will also be super sweaty (like jumping in a pool kinda sweaty), so consider this when scheduling.

Rumble Boxing: All Classes
Intense. Be ready. A 10-round, 45-minute fight session coupled blasting tunes from Drake to Biggie. Open to all levels, prepare to hustle. While you leave sweaty, it's not an unworkable situation. Most locations have showers onsite for a quick rinse to get you back to the rest of your day.

The Ness: Trampoline
Ok, fine, it’s 50 minutes. But if you had to, you could sneak out (don’t tell them we told you!). New to the scene, the workout is a highly effective and engaging bounce plus beat-based trampoline class sure to sculpt that booty.

SoulCycle: All Classes
An oldie but a goodie! With regularly scheduled classes and many locations, this quick hit of furiously pedaling interval-based cycling in the dark to motivating early-2000s jams is sure to get the job done in 45-minutes. Note, sweat will ensue, be prepared.

Real Pilates: All Classes
Most classes are 45-minutes and offered at 3 locations city-wide. A combination of resistance and bodyweight training this class will leave you toned in no time. Bonus, with little to no sweat, you can take this class on your way to anywhere.
