It’s an exciting time to be a part of the fitness scene in Boston.

Where there once were only a few different options to find what you love about working out, there now seem to be a million. Better yet, no neighborhood is left barren—there seems to be a healthy mix of everything from spin to yoga to bootcamp just about everywhere you go in the city. Here at Be Well Boston, we continue to catch wind of brand new concepts gracing our city as well as new locations of old favorites, and we wanted to help you find your new favorite spot.

Below are eight new gyms and fitness studios opening in the new year around Boston. Keep an eye out for them—Boston fitness is about to explode.

CorePower Yoga Back Bay: Yogis who frequent Back Bay and South End can rejoice, as the popular yoga destination is now opening a location right on Boylston St., set to open on January 17. If hot yoga and fast flows are your jam, and you’ve never been before, get a free week of unlimited yoga. If you sign up before it opens, you’ll get 25 percent off an unlimited membership. 399 Boylston St., Boston, 617-752-6745, corepoweryoga.com

Boston Yoga Union: Describing themselves as the “newest old school yoga studio,” this newest addition to the yoga community in Boston is slated to swing its doors open in February right in Back Bay, with three studio rooms, many different class offerings, and an infrared radiant heater for hot yoga. Meet founders Tim Kelleher and Emily Tevald and experience what they’re all about in one of their preview classes at lululemon on Newbury Street every Wednesday night. 1112 Boylston St., Boston, bostonyogaunion.com.  

Rev’d Cycling Copley: Last week, Rev’d announced, via their Instagram, that they will be opening their first location in Boston. Currently they have locations in Dedham, Burlington, and Patriot Place. The details are still in the works, but you can expect another spot to clip in and ride in the Back Bay come summer 2019. revdindoorcycling.com    

Handle Bar North Station: This beloved local spin studio is making another home for itself in the North End. Be on the lookout for it in the coming months. Along with all the things you love about the cycling conglomerate, like killer head bangers and a fun time in the saddle, the new space will be the largest of the four locations. Owner Jess Fracalossi is also hinting at a brand new way to sweat with the Handle Bar team that she’ll announce with the grand opening—might we have an off-the-bike rendition? handlebarcycling.com

BKBX: We’re super excited about this one, as it looks like something straight out of the future. BKBX is Brooklyn Boulders’ entirely new training concept, designed around the goal of preparing your body for any kind of outdoor adventure, whether you’re hitting the slopes or scaling the face of a mountain. Set to open the first week of February, the space will feature a state of the art training room to help you prep for all your outdoor adventures as well as a room designed for recovery that will house a cryotherapy sauna and an infrared sauna. You’ll even be able to rent gear for climbing and book your next adventure in-house with someone on staff. 219 Western Ave., Allston, bkbx.fit

Savin Hill: Coming in May to Dorchester will be a catch-all fitness studio where you can come for yoga, bootcamp, Pilates, Zumba, and even personalized services like nutrition consultation and personal training. Each day, 14 classes will be offered. You can even sign up for massage therapy or energy work for a little #selfcare. 110 Savin Hill, Boston, savinhillfitness.com

Row Republic: First there was Orangetheory, then there was Sweat Fixx, and now it seems every bootcamp and group exercise class is capitalizing on the fact that this city really loves to row. Row Republic, an entirely rowing-based studio, is coming to the North End this year and we’re getting Barry’s Bootcamp vibes. Similar to Barry’s, in which you split your time between the treadmill and strength floor, this workout is split between the rower and the strength floor, offering a complete workout—or shall we say, a completely hard workout. 77 North Washington St., Boston, row-republic.com

Rumble Boxing: A couple months ago, Rumble Boxing shared an Instagram story teasing the prospect of a Boston location. The teaser alone was enough to keep us hooked because of all the hype it’s been getting from dedicated celebs like Selena Gomez and David Beckham—it’s even been described as “the best workout in the Big Apple” by People. The New York City-based boxing class is a fast-paced, 10-round workout incorporating strength training and boxing moves that looks like a complete blast, if you ask us.
