Barre-Tique Fitness, Port Jefferson

Forget downward-facing dog on your yoga matt for a day. Instead stretch in the air with an aerial silk at Barre-Tique Fitness. This fitness spot is known for helping clients get a dancers’ body with its core-infused classes, but it’s cranking it up a notch with Levi-Tique aerial barre. While floating in the silks, which resemble hammocks, clients will strengthen their cores and perfect balance as they master poses mid-air. And of course, there will still be plenty of bepliés, relevés, tucks & pulses. You’ll leave feeling “de-stressed,” “refreshed” and maybe like an acrobat. Go

Sky Zone Trampoline Park, Deer Park

Jump into shape at this indoor trampoline park. In the midst of feeling like a kid again, burning up to 1,000 calories an hour is possible with the SkyFit workout. And take fun to another level when Sky Zone turns into a glow in the dark dance party with laser, music and blacklight on Friday nights from 7-11pm. Go

Dream Dance Fitness, East Meadow

Build some upper body strength while pole dancing at Dream Dance Fitness.

It’s all about defying gravity with several different classes at this yoga spot.
