Pilates meets pirouettes for this Workout Wednesday at New York Health and Racquet Club’s Pilates Inside Out class! When it comes to ab flattening workouts, Pilates is typically your best bet, but we had no idea how effective the more mainstream moves could be when combined with ballet and barre techniques! After testing out New York Health and Racquet Club’s new Pilates Inside Out class, we can tell you first-hand that this is a tummy tightening experience you don’t want to miss. While the class begins and ends with restorative stretches, you’re pushed to your limit as you hold grueling positions in quick succession. Taught by professional dancer, Nathan Kosla, Pilates Inside Out incorporates vigorous core strengthening and extreme toning techniques – trust us, this is not an understatement! Although the pilates/ballet/barre class is low-impact, your muscles will shake and spasm within the first five minutes. This workout is ideal if you want to sculpt your arms, abs, legs and glutes – all of which seriously feel the burn for the duration of the 45 minute sweat session. The breakthrough fitness class promises to build a strong, athletic body in no time, and there’s an extra incentive to get into tip-top shape at NYHRC. Appropriately dubbed the 50 in 90 challenge, for the duration of the year NYHRC will be sponsoring special events, coordinating fabulous workouts and much more – all in an effort to inspire you to keep hitting the gym.
