New YorkHIIT, Barre, Pilates
We know what you are thinking… if I take this class will I a) look like Karlie Kloss or b) take class next to Karlie Kloss? modelFIT has become one of New York’s most popular workouts, so we had to see what all the fuss was about. Located right on Bowery, the studio is up just one flight of stairs, but you feel as though you’ve gone much farther from the busy Bowery street below. The class we tested was Cardio/Sculpt, which was a cardio dance party for the first half and followed by half an hour of sculpting – the perfect combo! Although we didn’t see Karlie, it’s no wonder why New York’s most beautiful people love this workout. We cannot promise you will become a top model, but we can say confidently that you should check out this true full body workout!
We love nothing more than a good dance party and the first part of the workout allowed us to shake it for 30 minutes! Not a big fan of dance classes? Don’t be discouraged, this is not Dancing With the Stars. No routine memorization required, it’s just a simple game of following the leader. After 30 minutes of cardio dancing, the class switches gears to sculpting. We started with a rapid fire round of arms, then moved to legs with added leg weights, and finished the section with core work. From start to finish, we were pretty much drenched in sweat!
Ummm, is Ashley Rosenberg Jenna Dewan Tatum? She is certainly the closest we will get! We had serious envy as she crushed the dance sequence. Even though we looked like absolute fools at times, she was nothing but supportive and helpful. We were thinking that maybe she would go easy on us during the sculpting section – but no such luck! Our legs, arms and abs were screaming! Her workout was challenging, but fun and dynamic.
modelFITt is on the 2nd floor above Bowery – one of NYC’s busiest streets! But once you climb one flight of stairs, you leave the hustle and bustle behind. The studio workout space is one big open room with a front desk. There are also lockers, showers, and products! Water is for sale, which is lucky, because you’re going to need to rehydrate.
