Looking to get your 2016 off to a healthier start? Boost your energy and get prepared for the New Year with a trip to one of these fitness focused locales.

An urban escape. 

It’s easy to be a glutton in New York City, where there’s a bar or amazing restaurant on every corner. But you’ll also find some of the best urban health escapes in the world, such as TriBeCa’s Aire Ancient Baths, a soaring, candlelit subterranean spa that makes you forget all about the Manhattan bustle. 

The bath and yoga treatment package includes a 30-minute vinyasa session and dips in three pools—from cold to steaming hot—which are meant to improve circulation (212-274-3777; treatments from $75).

Bootcamp for the stars.

It may be one of the fashion crowd’s favorite vacation spots, but Tulum, Mexico (an hour-and-a-half drive south of Cancún’s airport), is also home to a tough-as-nails fitness retreat. 

Amansala’s Bikini Bootcamp offers a daily regimen of cardio circuit training, ab workouts, yoga, and salsa or African dance classes—all on the beach or in open-air studios next to the aquamarine sea. There are also bike rides to explore the Mayan ­ruins (; weeklong boot camp from $1,875 per person, all-inclusive).
