Bikram Yoga NYC
Workouts don’t get much sweatier than this sequence of postures, which is lauded for reducing stress, improving flexibility and promoting weight loss. If you can stand the high temperatures—Bikram takes place in a studio heated to around 105 degrees—consider purchasing a ten-class pack ($180) from this chain, the first of its kind in Manhattan. You’ll get more practice—and perspiration—for your buck, as snagging ten at once saves you $70 overall, and the classes are redeemable for three months from the date of your first class. • Visit bikramyoganyc.com for details.

There’s a reason high-caliber boot camps can be so expensive: Led by some of the city’s most skilled (and ripped) personal trainers, Work Fitness quickly whips participants into shape with a combination of boxing and kickboxing. Twenty classes ($500) is a sizable investment, but snatching them up together will save you a bundle—sessions are normally $32, so purchasing in bulk keeps an extra $140 in your wallet. • 646-524-7177, worktrainfight.com

Pop culture clearly has a case of dance fever, judging by shows like Bunheads, So You Think You Can Dance and America’s Best Dance Crew. Imitate those hot-steppers at this institution, which offers sessions for all levels in genres such as hip-hop, ballet and tap. Invest in a ten-class card ($150–$160), which saves you about $30—classes are normally $18—and you’ll be perfecting your pliés (or popping and locking) in no time. • 212-582-9304, broadwaydancecenter.com
- 322 W 45th St, (between Eighth and Ninth Aves)
Michiyo Art Studio
Owned by photographer turned watercolor master Michiyo Fukushima, Tribeca’s Michiyo Art Studio has garnered considerable buzz for its dedicated, personalized approach to art instruction. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro looking for additional practice, Fukushima and her associates will guide you toward your artistic goals. The seven-class deal ($230) saves you $85 on courses such as drawing for beginners and the popular BYOB watercolor session. • 646-494-2781, michiyoart.com

QQ Nail Salon and Spa
Manis may not be the priciest of spa services—especially at this chainlet, where one typically goes for $10—but the cost of maintaining your digits can add up over time. If you pony up for ten treatments at once ($80), you’ll save $20. With four Manhattan locations and a plethora of OPI and Essie polishes to choose from, the salon will keep your nails looking like a million bucks without making you spend nearly that much. • Visit qqnailspa.com for details.
