Megan Roup’s The Sculpt Society just launched at Equinox this August, but it’s actually been around for a few months. The first class to be produced wide-scale out of Project by Equinox, it provides a mix of dance cardio and Jane Fonda-esque sculpting (including the ankle weights!) for a full body burn. Seriously, though — I felt this one everywhere.
If you read my review of Equinox’s True Barre, you’ll know that I’ve finally come around to Barre. Despite how painful the workout can be, it’s difficult to argue with the challenge it poses. Pop Physique, with its beautiful aesthetic and “J’adore barre” t-shirts, became my next stop. Their newly opened Chateau on the Upper East Side conveniently offered a free class this past week to those who signed up, and of course I jumped right on it! What I got was a full hour of a tough, full-body workout that left me exhausted (in a good way) hours later.
