One of my absolute favorite workouts in New York is a Physique 57 class.
I first tried Physique last year and fell in love. The class moves really quickly, and before you know it, you’re almost done and doing the cool-down. My wallet is thankful that the studio is not right around the corner from me, or I would go a lot more than I do.

They could have given us any instructor, but we got to take a class from Tanya Becker, the founder. She had twins just a few months ago but still looks amazing.
I’ve taken Physique a handful of times, but this was the hardest class I’d ever taken there. I don’t remember the class as being slow, but I certainly don’t remember all the intervals we did this time. Meghann and I had run 5 miles in the morning and my legs were exhausted, so they started quivering quickly.
Oh, and Tanya and I had the same shirt on. I got mine hemmed because I had a short torso.
For a girl who moved to the city overweight, working a boring job and not knowing anyone four years ago, I had to pinch myself that I was getting to take a private class with a bunch of other bloggers with the founders of one of the hot fitness studios.
Great, you say. I don’t live in New York, and I can’t do this fancypants class you talk about.
