The fitness world has no shortage of hybrid group classes, many with iffy discipline pairings and an all-to familiar feel. So it’s exciting when one comes along that proves as surprising as it is effective. Zenergy—the first signature class at the Reebok Sports Club/NY and the Sports Club/LA on the Upper East Side—is a highly energizing mashup of yoga and strength training with a focus on recovery. Sequences of traditional yoga poses increase flexibility and interweave with athletic movements like lunges; functional movements and plyometric work build strength and power. Restorative poses make for highly beneficial recovery periods, and each session closes with a round of meditation that brings a body (and mind) back to balance. 160 Columbus Ave., 212-362- 6800; 330 E. 61st St., 212-355-5100; thesportsclubla.com
