The lawsuit was filed Wednesday by members of the newly formed Boutique Fitness Alliance — which represents about 600 group exercise studios in the city — and the New York Fitness Coalition, which comprises about 2,500 combined gyms and fitness studios throughout the state.

Boutique Fitness Alliance President Amanda Freeman and New York Fitness Coalition President and CEO Charlie Cassara say the mayor has
