Class is 57 minutes long (hence the name-that and their main studio is located on 57th street between 5th and 6th Aves) and set to fun and motivating music. After a short warm up of lifting your knees to your chest while moving your arms to get your heart pumping, we move immediately to arms. Next comes thighs-in my opinion the most excruciating part of class and also the biggest calorie burn.
Speaking of motivation, the instructors at Physique are motivation clad in Lululemon flaunting toned dancer bodies. The studio is immaculate and offers many amenities that have become to be expected of boutique fitness studios such as a stocked locker room with toiletries for your use and free green apples after class! The at-home series is made up of two full length 57 minute dvds, two 30 minute full body classes-one regular and one advanced, one 30 minute abs and arms dvd and one 30 minutes thigh and seat booster dvd.
If you are feeling extra inspired this month, Physique is challenging you to workout six days a week! I ended up sitting in a middle seat in the very back row of the plane but I was thrilled to be able to arrive early and not spend the better part of my day waiting in Chicago O’Hare airport. I’ve taken Physique 57 a couple of time in the past when I’ve been in NYC and absolutely love it, so when my friend Natasha who works in marketing for Physique 57 invited me to take a class, I was all for it! Before I left, I spent some time chatting with the women who work at Physique 57 and since I was visiting from out of town they gave me some information about their online workouts that I thought might interest some of you guys, too!
Now it’s time for me to walk over to Merri’s office and pick her up before we get our evening started!
I will be honest and say NYC totally intimidates me and I definitely feel out of my element when I am here, but I love the hustle and bustle of the city.


I lived on the upper west side for 2 years and 100% second this recommendation- you gotta try their cookies!!
You HAVE to have a NYC bagel (Essabagel or Pick-a-Bagel) or NYC Pizza while you are here… Ice Skating in Bryant Park or Central Park (a lot cheaper than the Rockefeller Rink and just as nice), Bryant Park also has a fun holiday market to shop around (with lots of cute homemade goodies!). Can I take one random class at physique 57 if I’m traveling to New York or do I have to be a member? Everyday I strive to find balance in my life through fitness, healthy eating, occasional indulgences and generally enjoying all life has to offer. I managed to cut my initial three-hour layover time in half and caught an earlier flight to New York City. It’s a barre-based workout that uses small, isolated movements to target your muscles with a goal of increasing flexibility and endurance, while strengthening and sculpting. They offer strength, cardio, prenatal and full body workouts that you may view online for $5 to $10. My friend Ashley is flying in tomorrow morning and we’re planning on grabbing hot chocolate and checking out the tree at Rockefeller Center, but we’ll still have a few hours to kill before everyone else arrives (Ryan gets in tomorrow night!), so if you guys have any recommendations for fun holiday sights we should check out tomorrow, I’d love to hear them!!!
It’s a little hole in the wall place on the upper west side, but you can smell the cookies from a block away. I’m heading to New York this Sunday and I’m looking for options to keep up to date woth my workouts!! Physique 57 sounds awesome, and although I’ve never tried a barre workout before, I am a dancer so I know that slow burn!
They have these huge beautiful ornaments hanging inside the mall- one of my fave Christmas sights in the city (I lived on the Upper West for years, and second the rec for Levain Bakery!).


And it’s funny because whenever I leave ny I feel like the pace is so slow (not complaining!) and I feel out of my element! As far as decorations, check out the store fronts of bergdorf’s, saks and Bloomingdales. I didn’t mind having the afternoon to myself at all since there’s no shortage of things to do in the city! When you pay, you have access to the video for 48 hours and some of the workouts don’t require any equipment at all, so they’re a great option for anyone looking to get in a great workout while they’re traveling. And you guys should check out serendipity 2 and I also recommend city bakery for their hot cocoa specials! So far I’ve managed to entertain myself with lunch, a short walk around the city (carrying luggage around limits my ability to do too much) and an afternoon workout class at Physique 57!
If you get a chance to have a holiday cocktail or even just lunch, go to Rolfs on 3rd and 22nd, they have my favorite Christmas display, in fact I would call it magical. I hope you enjoy little glimpses into my life and have fun trying the sweaty workouts I frequently share and making some of my favorite recipes along the way!
