Hello from New York! Margo here, and I have been out and about all over Gotham looking at the newest gyms, hottest instructors and the latest classes on behalf of Fit Bottomed Girls and wanted to pass along a few of my personal favorites. Whether you’re a sociable New Yorker looking for a glass of vino after a tough boxing workout or a cardio gal looking for a “bouncing” fix at lunchtime—check out my latest round up of the hottest classes to try in the city that never sleeps!
4 New York Fitness Classes Worth Checking Out
1. UPLIFT Studios. UPLIFT Studios is the creation of three busy career women (Leanne Shear, Helena Wolin and Katie Currie) who were seeking an environment devoted to not only getting physically fit but also to bringing more social activity into their lives. UPLIFT is famous for its “Workout & Wine” classes that combine heavy cardio and weights capped off with a nice glass of wine—cheers!
At UPLIFT Studios, the space combines a traditional workout studio along with a coffee bar, wi-fi and a devoted time to socialize after the workout is over to foster relationships that go beyond the usual gym atmosphere. The whole point is to feel connected to fellow members and know that you are working out and making time for yourself among friends.
What to expect: One night you might find expert trainer Amanda Rose Walsh offering a boxing class and the next a “Cardio & Cocktails” class to get you ready for the weekend. The whole point is that everyone who takes classes at UPLIFT understands the full meaning of getting healthy inside and out.
What you’ll need: Just bring your workout gear and come ready to get a great sweat going while making some new friends along the way.
Where to find it: At 24 West 23rd Street on the second floor.
