While CrossFit is no longer the hottest fad on the fitness scene, it remains one of the most strenuous, sweat-inducing regimens you can find. CrossFit Valkyrie is one of the county’s best, with top-notch trainers and a central location in Elmsford. CrossFit Mount Kisco, Eastchester’s NorthEast Crossfit, and CrossFit Port Chester are also great boxes to snag a truly intense workout. And while they have expanded beyond their affiliate titles, White Plains’ Westchester Fit and Pleasantville’s Immortal Fitness (above) are also superb group-fitness locations.

With a location in Scarsdale’s Golden Horseshoe Shopping Center, Barry’s Bootcamp (above) is one of the trendiest places to get an exhausting workout in a safe and supportive atmosphere right now. Perhaps a step down from CrossFit in terms of sheer intensity, Barry’s combination of HIIT cardio interspersed with bouts of strength training makes for one truly effective fitness methodology.
