The chic catharsis workout that’s sweeping New York City

TarynToomey_TheClass_workoutWhat is The Class?

Ever since we discovered The Class, a workout created by Taryn Toomey—whom we dubbed “downtown Manhattan’s fitness phenom”—New York women have been flocking to Tribeca to book their spot (often next to a supermodel), and reporting back to their friends, “You just have to take it.”

But because it’s a genre-breaker—part boot camp, part alignment training, part therapy (not joking)—The Class defies convention. It also eludes those fitness pictures that pop into your brain and tell you just what kind of workout is going to be responsible for all your sweat.

This video, where the fit and fashionable train with Toomey, should help with that.

Check out her ethos and the method behind the white-hot mat workout that is The Class. And tell us if you’ve tried it (or want to) in the Comments, below!
