Last week I went to the newcomer on the fitness block, Body by Simone, to try out the newly hyped up gym and see what it’s all about. In the past few years, I have become increasingly obsessed with a select few, very select few to be exact, programs and thought I’d give this a try and check it out.
The studio – Located in West Chelsea – 606 West 26th Street – is very urban, clean and surprisingly spacious. There are showers, a dressing room and little sitting area that’s nice while waiting. There are two studios for classes and both seem to have ample space as the classes are yet to fill up – but rest assured ladies, swimsuit season is upon us so I’d book your classes now.
The classes – I took the Hips, Thighs and Butt class as well as the Dance Cardio, they were engaging, challenging and judging by the sweat scale, a very solid workout. The mat class which concentrates on your legs and butt is fantastic and as I know from experience, these moves can make the difference and give you the cutest bum you’ll ever see! The Dance Cardio was a mix between exactly that, dance cardio, with arms and abs. It’s a wonderful all around workout and really covers a lot in the hour long class. Rachel was the instructor and she was Australian, energetic and very sweet!
The hanging art in the studio is Simone. After seeing her body, you’ll likely try and stay for the rest of the entire day and not run out to get a cheeseburger. Her body is absolutely insane and I can’t wait to take her class this weekend –
So do yourself a favor and book a class before they fill up!
