Having spent countless hours in different NYC fitness studios, we can honestly say that The Class by TT is one of the most unique workouts NYC has to offer. Created by Taryn Toomey, The Class is as much a workout for your mind as it is your body. The Class does not use any props or weights; it’s just you, your mat and the instructor. Sneakers are optional, though we recommend wearing them as there is a fair amount of jumping, squats and other plyometric and calisthenic exercises, which can be hard on the knees and feet – but it’s totally up to you. The Class will push you to your max, with the idea that it is in this moment that whatever you’ve been holding on to will be released. We left the class feeling lighter, stronger and happier than when we arrived.
Within minutes, you are sweating from rounds of jumping jacks, squats, planks, mountain climbers, and burpees. Never fear, each of these exercises starts slow and builds in momentum: just when you think you’re about to give up, the pace slows and you are able to catch your breath in between each one. What we love about the class is that it’s an individual journey, but you feel the power and connection from everyone else in the room. The Class is a place where you can truly be yourself, you can scream, cry, smile, laugh and dance like nobody’s watching. You will lose yourself in the loud music and intensity of the moves. As you cool down, a huge sense of accomplishment and relaxation surrounds you and you realize how much you needed this class.
We cannot get enough of Laura Camilleri! She is warm and inviting, and she instantly puts you at ease, especially if it’s your first time taking The Class. Once the class gets going, all bets are off and you feel that she’s right alongside you, supporting and motivating you. Her teaching style encourages individual expression, but she somehow manages to create a cohesive group. In addition to being a star class instructor, Laura is an amazing yoga teacher. Sign up for the Laura’s class; your soul will smile.
The experience begins when you enter the pristine, tranquil, white studio in Tribeca. Instantly the fight you had on the subway, your overbearing boss, or whatever angst you have been holding on to washes away. The studio is almost completely white and decked out with marble, candles and crystals. Hello, dream space. The studio has lockers, 2 big bathrooms, a warm front desk staff, and a state of the art water fountain – basically everything you need.
