I was so excited when Physique 57 finally joined ClassPass! I signed up for a Beginner class and then a Mixed class the next day, and I must say that the Beginner class was not that much easier compared to Mixed! Both teachers I had were good, though Lyndsey was extra attentive to new clients and very sweet. The facility was nicely kept, and they have a beautiful locker room and shower area. The actual studios and equipment however, seemed a bit dated compared to more modern barre studios like Pop Physique. I think in terms of being fresh, modern and energetic, I prefer Pop Physique a little more.
The workout, however, was tough! A lot of the moves were different from other barre classes, which I appreciated and I found the classes especially challenging. Barre thighs were tougher than normal, and overall, it was a great workout. Though for me, it’s probably a once in a while studio since I have a ton of barre studios close to home (Pop Physique and Pure Barre are all within 2 miles of me). But if you’re looking for a barre studio with a shower (which is rare), Physique 57 will be a game changer!
