If p-sets and midterms stress you out, let out that extra steam through boxing or kickboxing! Title is a great gym that offers classes daily. Also, your first class is free, so definitely an incentive to try out!

If you have a class pass, take advantage of FlyWheel! Similar to SoulCycle, this cycling class will work your quads. Also, they have a personal performance tracker that lets you compare your performance to the rest of the class.

AIR- Aerial Fitness
Flying yoga is now a huge trend! If you're looking for something completely out of the box, AIR is where you should go. It'll challenge you to push your bodies in different forms and stretch you out to your fullest potential.

If you want to go with a group of friends, I would recommend rock climbing. Although it's an individual workout, you can challenge your friends on the same course, encourage them on the way up, and go back to childhood while still pushing your body.
Address: 100 S Morgan St
Hopefully this guide gave you some new ideas and definitely check out Class Pass that will give you access to fitness facilities across the city!
