Box Your Way to Fitness This Year in Midtown West

There are two types of New Year’s resolutions: First, there are the overly ambitious or hastily made ones that last about two weeks. Then, there are the deeper ones — the ones that really stick, dramatically changing your life. A resolution to improve your physical fitness can definitely be one of the latter — if you can find a way to stay motivated and engaged.

Living at 555TEN luxury rentals gives you easy access to an approach to fitness that is as body strengthening as it is mentally empowering. TITLE Boxing Club is the game-changing studio that can bring some fire and ferocity to your weekly workout. The edgy excitement of boxing can help you avoid the boredom of an ordinary fitness regimen, and the discipline of the sport can give you a fine awareness of how you move and use your body.

TITLE is one of the best of the studios born in the wave of boxing popularity that has swept health-conscious New Yorkers. It was listed by Time Out New York as one of New York’s 20 best gyms and health clubs, and the quality and comprehensiveness of the workout is a big reason why it is so popular. The other major draw is the people who turn up at the club. There’s something about gathering your aggression and setting it free in healthy ways that is transformative, but doing it in a room filled with other physically and mentally inspired people takes the experience to a much higher level.

The sport’s popularity as a fitness activity is booming. You can find videos of the likes of Gigi Hadid demonstrating her boxing workout at Vogue.com, and read interviews with A-listers like Hailey Baldwin singing the praises of this newly fashionable workout. Baldwin told Elle magazine, “I’ve been boxing for the last three years. It reminds me of dance in how coordinated it is. I was in the best shape I’ve ever been.”

When you come for your first class at TITLE Midtown West, the deeply passionate and engaged instructors will show you how to wrap your hands and get settled into your space with a punching bag. Hitting the bag, as Baldwin says, is like dance in its demand for grace, agility, and rhythm. At TITLE, boxing is not simply a contact sport, but a reckoning with your own limits and ambitions. And your skills will develop as dedicated teachers like Edwin Ocasio and Wayne Phillips lead you through warm-ups and show you how to throw punches naturally yet forcefully.

Make TITLE Midtown West the go-to workout spot in your new life at your no fee rental at 555TEN. The teachers at TITLE will help you discover for yourself what Muhammad Ali meant when he said, “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.”

 

This Just In

New York is an ever-changing city. From fashions to food trends, the storyline of Manhattan is always moving forward at a rapid clip. Some of this action is subtle, but much of it can be seen by just taking a look around. Hell’s Kitchen, once home to old, low-rise walk-up buildings, has become the epicenter for contemporary luxury living. Just look at the Midtown West apartments of 555TEN — located in a 56-story tower and offering all of the modern conveniences you could ever want. Amenities like state-of-the-art appliances, 24-hour doormen, a pool, and even a bowling alley are there for your comfort and enjoyment.

The neighborhood itself is having no trouble keeping pace with its dramatic transformation. This year, be on the lookout for a bevy of new restaurants, shops, and activities in Midtown West. Yes, the good old standbys will always be there, but you’ll be excited to know about the significant changes coming to your favorite part of town.

Restaurants
Ryan Sutton, chief food critic for EATER, summed up Hell’s Kitchen’s culinary reputation very accurately, calling it a “solid testing ground for new ideas.” Reflecting the area’s penchant for innovation — and thanks to the opening of Hudson Yards — notable changes are coming to the food scene in this part of town. This year, names like Thomas Keller, David Chang, and José Andrés all have new restaurants landing in the neighborhood. Andrés is even opening up an Eataly-style food market for Spanish food.

Entertainment
One of the best parts of living in a Midtown West apartment is your proximity to some of the world’s greatest entertainment. Broadway is literally a 10-minute walk from your home at 555TEN, and it’s a good thing, too. Several theatrical events are opening this year that you’ll want to see, including “Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus,” starring Nathan Lane and Andrea Martin, and “Hillary and Clinton,” a play about the Clintons with Tony and Emmy winners Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow in the title roles. Not only that, but 2019 is expected to mark the opening of The Shed, a massive multi-use entertainment venue with an impressive retractable roof — and situated right off the High Line — that promises to bring the best and brightest across all art forms.

Shopping
Midtown West is set to become one of NYC’s hottest shopping destinations as many big brands locate themselves along the Hudson. While NYC is a mecca for world-class shopping — think: the glamour of Fifth Avenue, the cutting-edge boutiques of the East Village, and the hip vibe of the West Village — New Yorkers have lamented the fact that there wasn’t a Neiman Marcus in the city … until now. Other big names in fashion are heading for the area: Shoe designer Stuart Weitzman, Cartier, and Kiehl’s are making to move west. And the best part is that it’s all just a quick eight blocks south of 555TEN.

This Winter, Warm Up on the Roof

Rooftop gardens, bars, and lounges are wonderful, there’s no doubt about it. But how many of them can you enjoy all year round? The answer, if you’re wondering, is very, very few. And of those that remain open all year, most aren’t designed to be truly enjoyed during the colder months — they just remain open in case any intrepid tenants want to brave the weather. At the Midtown West apartments at 555TEN, however, the rooftop club and bar are just as enjoyable in the middle of winter as they are in the summer or spring. In fact, nearly all of the building’s amenities were thoughtfully designed to be fully functional throughout the entire year.

But before we get to the roof, we need to mention the fitness center. This is not just a room with some weights and treadmills, this is a full-on, attended gym. You’ll find a private studio for yoga, aerobics, and weight-training classes, as well as a number of Peloton bikes for live, interactive spin classes, and a Nexersys high-intensity boxing game. All of this in addition to the indoor saltwater lap pool. So, if you’re looking to stay fit through the winter season, you won’t even need to leave the building.

Now, if you’re in the market for something a bit more relaxing, say, a cozy wind-down after a long day, that’s where the rooftop club and bar come in. You can head up there with a glass of wine, or perhaps a decadent hot chocolate from local gems Jacque Torres or Godiva, and either relax around the fireplace inside the club, or head outside and still enjoy the warmth from the roaring flames. The indoor/outdoor fireplace keeps the roof area accessible and warm. Imagine taking in the first snow of the season from the top of a building in Midtown Manhattan — and imagine being warm while doing so.

The views from 56 stories up extend for miles over the glimmering and occasionally snow-covered cityscape, making the rooftop a truly serene, unrivaled enclave during the winter months.

While many Midtown West apartments tend to cater toward the warmer seasons, 555TEN crafted its amenities to be enjoyed all year round. You and your fellow residents in the 555TEN luxury rentals have a stunning, private rooftop bar bathed in the glow of firelight, as well as a high-end fitness center, a bowling alley, an arcade, and much more. We wonder why anyone would ever leave.

The Biggest Amenities of 2019

When it comes to luxury homes in New York City, the difference between two buildings often comes down to which offers the more enticing package of amenities, and Real Estate Weekly recently ran a feature highlighting the most exciting residential features of the new year. For example, residents of the NYC luxury rentals at 555TEN will have access to a game room that combines new favorites and old classics to create a nostalgic take on a classic amenity. Residents will love the collection of iconic arcade games, including Pac-Man and pinball, as well as a full-size two-lane bowling alley where they can practice their form or just let off some steam by filling a few frames.

What you need to know about living and renting in NYC with a pit bull

When it comes to owning particular dog breeds (like pit bulls), some luxury buildings take a more open-minded and holistic approach than others. At 555TEN’s Midtown rentals, professionals provide evaluations and services to ensure that their four-legged residents have as comfortable an experience as the two-legged variety. 555TEN features pet services by the renowned Throw Me A Bone, who are available to help residents with everything from dog sitting and walking to training and grooming, all without leaving their building.
