Barre fitness classes have become increasingly popular, providing low-impact, high-intensity workouts that lengthen and strengthen muscles. And if you’ve ever taken a barre class, you know that it is far from easy – despite how graceful and elegant it appears to be. Physique 57, located at 104 Hudson Street Suite 4 in Hoboken, opened this past March and we (+ our muscles) couldn’t be more excited. Read on to learn more about Physique 57 and the exclusive membership deal for HG readers.
All About Physique 57
The Physique 57 brand was founded by Tanya Becker and Jennifer Maanavi in 2005. Being the first barre-based fitness class to pop up in NYC, the team ran with the idea and jump-started a global business. Over the years, the duo has opened numerous studios all over the world, from Dubai to the newly opened location in Hoboken.
The Physique 57 method stands on its own in a unique fitness category. It revolves around a concept called “interval overload” that works muscles to the point of fatigue before stretching them, allowing clients to achieve visible results, fast. It incorporates rigorous interval training and creative choreography.
For Lily Borak, the owner of the Hoboken location, it was love at first class when she took her first Physique 57 class over seven years ago. She opened her own studio to allow the community to experience the same joy and passion she gets from this amazing and unique method.
“In terms of instructor quality, class intensity, music, and results, I found the Physique 57 method to be the most effective and fun, ” Lily shared with The Hoboken Girl. “When the company started franchising, I saw the perfect opportunity to bring this wonderful workout to Hoboken, where I hope many others will share my passion.”
Lily was excited to bring her love of Physique 57 to the Hoboken community. Already, the group barre fitness classes and private training sessions at the studio are incredibly popular among those looking for a challenging – and fun – workout.
The Hoboken Studio
The Hoboken studio prioritizes helping members achieve their own fitness goals and establishing a strong community of members who support one another. Each class is unique and is tailored to the individual.
Lily is especially proud of her instructors, who go through hundreds of hours of full-time training before they can teach a class at Physique 57. Each instructor is given the freedom to put their own spin on their classes as they choreograph each class and curate their own playlist. Instructors are given the freedom to structure the class as they see fit, so it always feels fresh (and keeps your muscles guessing). Physique 57 instructors are very hands-on, if you’re comfortable with it, and provide personalized adjustments that focus on proper body alignment.
Physique 57 prides itself on providing workouts that build lean muscles and sculpt your body from head to toe. This type of exercise, in turn, increases your metabolic rate, allowing you to burn calories all day.
But a workout at this studio isn’t just about getting your sweat on. Proper body alignment is an essential part of your Physique 57 workout and the instructors at this studio obsess over this important factor.
“The amount of individualized attention and adjustments offered to clients during class is unparalleled,” boasts Borak. “With great emphasis on music, the instructors are given the creative freedom to create their own playlists and choreograph their own movements that work with the music to provide as much originality and individuality as possible.”
