What: I’m a regular at Chaise23—it’s a 55-minute cardio and sculpting class done in their “fitness chair” using bungee cords hung from the ceiling. It sounds a bit crazy, but there’s a bit of a ballet and Pilates feel to it, and for me, it all just means a great workout.
Where: Chaise 23 studio is located in Gramercy. And they just opened a location in East Hampton.
Who: The best part of this studio is that all of the teachers are equally amazing! So far I've tried classes taught by Maria Carofano, Sarah Taylor, Criscia Richardson, and Catherine Scanlon.
Gear: No matter the work out, my attire generally remains the same. I stick to black workout leggings and an oversized, comfortable T-shirt or tank top. And as always, the most important accessory is a great pair of shoes. These Brooks are my favorites: light enough to climb all over the "chair" but also has enough support for jumping around too.
