Chaise23 strives to alter clients’ minds and bodies through founder Lauren Piskin’s “Reinvention Method.” The method uses chair-like platforms with spring-loaded pedals and bungee cords hung from the ceiling to create lean, toned and defined muscles. The 55-minute classes are high-energy, revolutionary and challenging workouts. The newly renovated group fitness studio opened to the public mid-March.
135 West 20th Street, between Sixth and Seventh Avenues
LA-export Barry’s Bootcamp delivers a boot-camp experience in a nightclub atmosphere: the lights dim, the music blasts and the crowd goes wild. Each 60-minute class combines cardio and strength training, with participants divided into two groups going back and forth between interval running on treadmills and floor work using dumbbells, bands and medicine balls. The drill sergeant – or, instructor – keeps the group on pace and in motion while motivating to push harder and run faster. This class is not for the faint at heart.
