Another New York fitness studio opened its doors this past weekend, and this one is like a permanent girls’ night out—no men and lots of wine.
Their two-room studio on 23rd Street feels especially spring-like, with deep green walls and a huge, sun-welcoming window. If you sit on a stool at the bar (which doubles as the front desk), your feet will graze fake grass.
And now that Uplift has an official home, they’ll be offering much more than their signature “Raise the Bar” workouts, like Pilates Movement Fusion, W0rkit Circuit, and 30-minute express toning classes.
I took a Power Vinyasa class with yogi-boxer Amanda Rose Walsh at the Grand Opening, and the class had my muscles shaking like jello.
