Peek inside the city's most exclusive gym, driven by tech and NYC fitness celebs.

Despite the wealth of high-end, state-of-the-art wellness and fitness facilities in our health-minded city, it’s still shockingly difficult to find everything you want and need in one space. You hit one spot for pre-workout fuel, run to an exercise class elsewhere, get your cryotherapy fix in another neighborhood, and shower at home. Enter Performix House: a shiny new gym that rolls it all into one luxurious package.

The DNA of this exclusive, invite-only health club comes from the eponymous technology-driven brand of vitamins and dietary supplements that help you get the most out of your workouts. At the House, energy- and recovery-boosting Performix drinks are on tap in slushie form, along with a selection of delicious protein bars and protein-infused chocolate bark that you don’t need to feel guilty about. Tech features are weaved throughout the sleek space, including a 3D-imaging machine that breaks down your body composition and—hello, influencers!—a creative studio that offers photographers and videographers to capture you crushing your workout. Not to mention an infrared sauna, cryotherapy, massage therapy and physiotherapy.

First-tier memberships at Performix House require clients to book one-on-one personal training sessions. Luckily, the fitness pros here are the best of the best, recruited from cult-followed spots like Rumble and Tone House. And if you’re lucky enough to score a membership, you’ll be in good company: Few are accepted into the club, and those who are take health seriously, including Martha Hunt and Devon Windsor. Call it the perfect mix. 80 Fifth Ave., 646-553-6153,
