4 NYC Workouts I Want to Try

It’s that time.  Time to start to think about getting in shape for summer.  Sundress motivation is never lost on me.

I often find the best motivation to be trying something new.  Here are some workout classes that I’m hoping to try this spring…

CITY ROW

I’ve always enjoyed some time spent on the erg and I’m definitely intrigued by a rowing workout in class format.  From the website: “Alternating between interval rowing and mat work, our signature 50-minute class combines high-interval sweat with low-resistance burn to scorch up to 600 calories in one session.” Price: $32/class.

FLEX STUDIOS

For a while I thought Pilates ProWorks had closed and I was sad.  However, it looks like it has just been rebranded and made some changes.  Flex’s class line up looks great. I definitely want to try the Flex Barre and Flex TRX–I also think the studio is gorgeous! From the website: “The Barre Class that Will Make You Sweat. An intense calorie-burning, workout with an emphasis on conditioning the thighs, seat & hamstrings to make you stronger, increase your muscle tone and change your body. Set to the hottest soundtrack in the city.” Price: $38/class

EXCEED

My good pal MeriG told me about Exceed and I’ve been meaning to check it for a while! While I don’t get to the UES very often, sometimes it’s worth the trek! Here’s what Exceed says about Exceed: “Exceed is the Ultimate Full Body Workout. Combining metabolic, strength, cardio, and interval training, the EXCEED workout will drive and inspire you to get fit, stay fit, and be
at your best every day.”  Price: $32/class

STUDIO 360

I’ve always thought that balancing spinning with yoga or pilates would be the ultimate workout combo, Studio 360 does just that with their signature series class which includes a 40 minute cycle and 20 minutes of yoga–very high on my list of workouts to try! From the website: Signature Series. “This class will make your life even more awesome. Join us for a 40 minute indoor ride. The journey continues in the next room for a 20 minute Yoga series to integrate that energy from your cycling cardio, lengthen your muscles and strengthen your core. Yup, all that and more!” Price: $27/class

In other news, I hoping rumors that a beloved UES/UWS workout studio will make its triumphant return to the downtown area are true. :)

If ya’ll have studio or workout recommendations, send them my way!
