When people ask where some of my favorite fitness studios are, one of my top picks is Uplift Studios.
Uplift Studios is an all-women’s gym. There’s one large group exercise room and a large workout space.
I’ve tried almost every class offered here and I enjoy them and keep returning for different reasons.
My two favorites are the STRENGTH class and the SCULPT class.
The STRENGTH classes make me feel, well, strong! I love that because no one has really complimented me on my strength, which is something I’m proud of. In this class, I feel like I can openly show my strength without anyone judging me. The women in these classes inspire me to become even stronger. STRENGTH is a combination of lifting weights and HIIT training.
I’d describe the SCULPT class as something similar to barre with some HIIT involved. I find myself sweating more than I’d anticipate but I love that. I enjoy a mix of weights and HIIT because it’s definitely a full-body workout.
I tried the POWER class but it wasn’t a huge favorite because of the jumping involved. I just modified, which is always a great option in any class.
At Uplift, I feel like I can exercise in a sports bra and not feel judged. The studio truly lives up to its name of uplifting women.
From the instructors to the front-desk staff, the employees here are SO sweet and helpful and talented. It’s definitely a place where you go and people remember your name/face, which is amazing in New York!
-Locker room (built-in lock)
-Towels (for sweating and for showering)
-Skincare and hair care products, razors, tampons, floss picks…etc
-Weights, resistance bands, mats
-Clothing for purchase
There are probably more amenities that I’m missing that you can find on their site.
I love coming here and I hope you’ll join me for a class or two!
