Normally boutique studios focus on one or two fitness genres at most, with sport specialization being a selling point. But this winter, The Movement Fitness will open its doors in New York City as the first boutique fitness studio to offer barre, yoga, and HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) classes under one roof. So it’ll hopefully to stretch the fitness convention while stretching your limbs.
The 3,200-square-foot Flatiron studio is planning on a December or January opening, at 32 West 18th Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. It’s just across from City Bakery and only two doors down from the just-opened cycling studio Swerve Fitness.
The Movement Studio will offer group classes in Vinyasa yoga and its own barre and HIIT methods, which are currently in development. “We’re trying to make it more well-rounded hosting three types of classes,” says co-founder Dana Proman, who’s opening The Movement with her soon-to-be-husband Jordan Canino.
And like the recently opened Studio 360, The Movement will include a charity component, with one dollar per person per class donated to the National Brain Tumor Society. Says Proman, “Our slogan is give back, move forward.” —Lisa Elaine Held
