Long Island City's Z NYC Hotel is launching a series of fitness classes this summer on its 5,000-square-foot rooftop lounge, which offers impressive panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline.

The boutique luxury hotel, at 11-01 43rd Ave., is partnering with fitness group Total Wellness 365 to offer $15 sunrise fitness classes four mornings a week, and $15 yoga sessions on Saturdays.

"Z Roof at the Z NYC Hotel has become a popular meeting spot for residents, hotel guests and travelers to Long Island City since opening in July 2011," Lisa Gneo, director of sales and marketing, said in a statement.

"Our newest partnership with Total Wellness 365 will provide guests with yet another opportunity to enjoy the hotel’s rooftop while staying fit on the road."

Customers can also sign up for a Swedish or deep tissue massage after their workout for $95 an hour.

Fitness classes start June 1 and will take place at 6:30 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and 7:15 a.m. on Saturdays, while yoga will be offered on Saturdays at 8:15 a.m.

The hotel's rooftop bar, Z Roof, officials opens for the summer June 1, and will host a series of parties every weekend called Skyline Saturdays.
