Finding the time to crush it at your day job and maintain a healthy social life isn’t easy. Squeeze in some workouts, healthy eating, and a good amount of zzz’s each night, and you’re pretty much asking the impossible. One NYC club is making it their mission to create a safe space where busy people can go to unwind. The facility, called Nap York, is ironically stationed in the city that never sleeps. Here, you’ll find wellness-minded amenities including a meditation work lounge, an in-house “focus floor,” and — our personal favorite — napping pods. If this sounds like everything you’ve been looking for in a health club, scroll down to see how you can start attending this genius spot to your daily routine.


Nap York’s goal was to create a place where busy New Yorkers could go to refresh both mind and body during their busy days. You’ll see this in carefully thought-out features like the innovative cafe, where iPads and a 30-foot conveyer belt deliver nutritious meals and juices to hungry guests. The health club’s lounge offers the same on-point vibes with egg chairs and meditation pillows to make catching up on work emails *so* much more enjoyable. Throw in a crackling fireplace and you’ve got a space that’s worth working away from the office for.

If cracking down on a project is a priority, then head up to the focus floor. For $9 per half hour, you can reserve a desk and spend the day reclining in a leather office chair complete with a complementary standing desk. Then, over lunch, you can catch a class in the club’s in-house studio. For a $20 fee, choose from options like a 60-minute Vinyasa yoga session or a 30-minute guided meditation. All those oms and downward dogs will leave you ready to tackle the second half of your day.

Of course, we’re saving the best feature for last: the eco-friendly nap pods. For $10 per half hour, you can recline on an Airweave mattress and pillow under a twinkling canopy of stars. Whether you’re sleeping off yesterday’s late night, or are just looking for a nice quiet place to relax, these one-of-a-kind sleepers are just what you need to take a power nap and recharge and refuel for the week ahead.

The good news is that Nap York offers pay-per-use pricing, or memberships, to take advantage of their space. And for out-of-towners, they provide a la carte amenities like luggage storing, steam services, and a (casual) Tesla shuttle service to nearby airports. Head on over to their website to learn how you can sign-up to start getting your (much-needed) R&R.
