karen lord pilates movement gym review

Where: Karen Lord Pilates Movement, 137 Duane St, new york, NY

Gorgeous Studio, Nasty Management

This review is bound to bring up a bit of controversy. In fairness, credit will be given where credit is due. And that is to the stunning studio and to the instructors who know what they are doing. But an emerging studio in NYC needs to draw in a new client base with carrots - not sticks. And that is where Karen Lord Pilates and I part ways....  [More]

pablo fitness gym rateyourburn review

Where: Pablo Fitness, 226 E 54th Street, New York, NY

Much to be Desired, but Has Potential

Once upon a time, I was enticed by a Gilt City deal that seemed almost too good to be true. Five nyc spin classes for $45. Rapunzel is about to let her hair DOWN. GCity to the rescue, saving Pumps from fitness-induced credit card debt (PS, how awesome would it be if there were a fitness credit card that gave bonus classes for our fitness spending? Wait I guess that's called FITiST) Anyway, the gods were smiling down upon me, I thought....  [More]

flywheel tribeca logo gym review

Where: Flywheel Sports, 415 Greenwich Street, New York, NY

Doin' It Right Downtown

I make it no secret that I am a big fan of the Fly. It’s been great to see them spread Fly Fever around the world (they have 25 locations across the country and one international location in Dubai) but it’s been a hot minute since they opened a new studio in NYC….and downtown at that. I scrambled to get over to their new TriBeCa location ASAP and I was not disappointed!...  [More]

epic hybrid training center rating

Where: Epic Hybrid Training Center, 230 East 53rd Street, New York, NY

Almost epic!

There is one reason why I was eager to try out Epic. That reason: YOU. That's right, you. I have been reading your reviews. I have been admiring your admiration and feeding off of your passion. Basically, I want whatever you have. And what you have is Epic....  [More]

atmananda yoga sequence gym review

Where: Atmananda Yoga Sequence, 67 Irving Place, 2nd Floor, New York, New York, NY

Friendly Feel, Could Use a Fresh Coat of Paint

Yoga studios are like bunny rabbits - they just keep multiplying and I can’t keep track of them all...not the best analogy, but you get the picture. When Atmananda popped up on Gilt City, I had never heard of them before. But I get weird with online shopping so I was soon in possession of a ten-pack (of classes... not abs, boohoo). Different than the other 352 yoga studios near Union Square, Atmananda is a very special kind of bird. ...  [More]
