When I was in NYC, I visited Uplift studios – a super fun, cosy and quirky fitness studio that opened in Flatiron, NYC a few months ago. As soon as I entered the building, I felt the atmosphere of Uplift. They have a range of gym equipments, classes, personal training sessions AND a bar! What I loved about Uplift studios is the fact that it is a fab fitness studio and social club in one – clients get unlimited wine and cocktails! I read an article featuring a quote from Uplift’s founder, Leanne Shear, “Having wine with a girlfriend is very much a part of a healthy, balanced life.”
I took part in a class called ‘Tighten and Tone’ with the fab instructor, Patricia Whitcas, which was a full body workout using mats, balls and bands. It included a mix of pilates and barre moves, but was super challenging with the BURN. Not to mention, fab and pumping music to go in hand with the burn 🙂
A few other great things I loved at the studio:
-They offer complimentary snacks and drinks!
-The bathrooms are filled with luxe cool bath products such as Malin + Goetz (love!)
-The studio is filled with inspiring quotes, motivational words and sweet notes all round from the mirrors to the walls!
