Wellness Clubs Are Taking Over NYC

The Big Apple is taking a bite out of AI-powered wellness experiences in lavish, members-only clubs

High-earning New Yorkers are expected to look increasingly well-rested, full of vitality and overall centered this summer as wellness brand Continuum opens its flagship location in New York City’s Greenwich Village, adding to the health and wellness landscape of the Big Apple.

Opening its doors in May, Continuum Club has a waitlist for those hoping to receive its white glove service and hyper-personalized offerings, including one-on-one personal training sessions, massages, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, Himalayan salt saunas, cold plunge treatments, spacious workout zone and lounge areas. 

The “intentionally exclusive” club was leased through September 2032, occupying a 25,000 square-foot space that was once home to David Barton Gym and, most recently, Peloton’s Tread Studio, according to The Real Deal. 

Behind Continuum is its CEO and president Jeff Halevy, a former fitness tech entrepreneur and NBC’s “The Today Show” health correspondent.

AI-Infused Wellness

Unlike other luxury wellness clubs, the members-only Continuum is infusing advanced technology within its space, leveraging what Halevy says are “the most comprehensive physiological data sets, deep learning, and an expert team providing vertically integrated services” to deliver “ideal total wellness.”

Continuum Club clients receive a “bespoke wellness prescription” that the wellness company says is curated by its expert personnel and biometrically informed AI, which will adapt and adjust its recommendations over time. 

“Our club in Greenwich Village was meticulously curated to both house the leading technology and services in the wellness space and to do so in a cohesive, intentional, luxury environment,” said Continuum’s Chief Revenue Officer Tom Wingert, a former marketing executive from Lululemon. “We’ve brought an extraordinary team of NYC-based artisans together to create a sanctuary in the heart of the city that celebrates the heritage of the neighborhood and deeply incorporates nature in a way that encourages serenity amidst busy city life. The space is truly one of one.”

Although Continuum plans to expand its physical presence by establishing new clubs, the luxury brand will roll out its AI-driven wellness app beyond its club locations so users can experience biometric analysis and personalized prescriptions wherever they are.

The post-pandemic era certainly has resulted in a wellness boom in NYC. While Continuum plans to serve the Greenwich Village elite, Remedy Place, a social wellness club, opened in the Flatiron neighborhood in 2022.

Founded by Dr. Jonathan Leary, the “temptation and toxin-free” environment offers functional medicine, chiropractic movement, acupuncture, cupping, ice baths, infrared saunas and vitamin IV drips with an emphasis on socialization. Remedy Place also offers three different membership tiers, ranging from $350/month to $2,250/month, each offering guest passes. The wellness club also has a location in West Hollywood, California.

Also located in Flatiron is The Well, offering quarterly memberships for access to its social wellness experience that includes massage and skin health services, vitamin therapy, yoga and movement, Chinese medicine and acupuncture, vibrational energy healing and health coaching. Private events can also be booked at The Well, for corporate outings or a staycation. The Well also recently broke ground on The Well Bay Harbor Island, a wellness-focused condo and office space in Miami that rivals luxury residential concepts like Life Time Living.

While The Remedy Place and The Well offer club-level memberships, non-members can also experience a luxurious wellness session by booking a service of their choice, or head to one of NYC’s many communal bathhouses that have become all the rage.
