louise gassman soulcycle spin review

Where: SoulCycle , 350 Amsterdam Avenue, New York, NY

Sad ---> Happy.

I was super relaxed when I got back from my vacay. For once, I didn't have the desire to attack phantom pimples on my face, or chow on the insides of my cheeks from work-related anxiety. I was happily boozing-cruising through life. But then my dog had to be hospitalized... and there is nothing in life I care about more than my little furball, so it was just bad. I was despondent. I canceled a few days worth of classes. When pup was finally back home and I felt I could skip out for 50 min, I snuck out to a local Soul class, and it hit the spot....  [More]

Abs of Steele

Every now and then, you gotta take a step back. I've been doing a ton of Crossfit and megaformer lately. My muscles are constantly sore and I've thought of kidnapping a professional masseuse to live with me. Point is, I forgot what normal Pilates was (since megaformer is "Pilates on crack") so it was time to sign up for a class. Damn, this class was not a piece of cake. ...  [More]

shaun jenkins tone house core focus review

Where: Tone House, 20 East 17th Street, 2nd floor, New York, NY

I am a house. Tone me.

I ate a hippo in Mexico. Yea, I did 100 box jumps per day in 100 degree temp (done outdoors on the ledge of an infinity pool and got mad stares from ladies with fake jugs and what is it about real titties that has gone out of style on the west coast?!), but still felt like my mid-section needed a beating. And, despite returning to my abode at 2AM and smelling like airplane gas and baby vom, I booked the following morning 8:30AM class at Tone House. Because I deserved a good can of whoop-ass. Come morning, I was wondering why on earth I did this to myself. But for the love of fitness, I got my truck over to Shaun....  [More]

erin thompson mark fisher fitness class review

Where: Mark Fisher Fitness, 411 West 39th Street, New York, NY

Not your average MFF ho

Mark Fisher Fitness is a firecracker, ain't no shame in that. I've come to expect the unexpected in this studio - instructors who find every which way to make the equipment appear phallic, gyrations just cuz, skin everywhere, and an extra large helping of the cuss-pancake. So, while this class was definitely not disappointing, I was kind of surprised to find it missing a bit of the MFF sparkle I've come to love....  [More]

brandon renert evf performance review

Where: EVF Performance Columbus Circle, 555 West 59th Street, New York, NY

Just what I needed

I have not vacationed since 2010 (except for a few jaunts with the parentals down to Florida, where I spent my days at Ellen's Ultimate, South Florida's best mother fuckin' fitness studio word up). Getting away for a hot minute, therefore, is about as worthy of my excitement as finding out the splurge hair blower on Folica just went 30% off (booyah!). But, a trip abroad without a fitness plan in place was also causing a bit of anxiety for me. To get a head start, I booked Brandon's EVF class, looking for something hard. And...damn yo. It was hard....  [More]
