It's amazing how a good workout can positively impact your mood, motivate you to continue working out, and lead to a stronger and healthier you. With Uplift just a short distance from our Stuyvesant Town apartments, there's no excuse not to get into a workout routine at this women's only fitness studio.

At Uplift there are five signature group classes, which includes Endurance, Sculpt, Strength, Power, and Uplift Express. The Endurance class is a 55 minute class that focuses on cardio, challenging your endurance, and combining a strength training circuit with plyometrics. The Sculpt class is also a 55 minute class and combines strength training and yoga, bringing you a high intensity class that is low impact. The Strength class is all about working your muscles, utilizing your own body, dumbbells, and resistance bands, while also adding high intensity interval training. The Power class is 45 minutes long and is a high intensity class incorporating explosive movement followed by active recovery. Light props, dumbbells, and resistance bands are utilized during this class. The Uplift Express class combines elements of the Endurance, Sculpt, Strength, and Power classes, and focuses on sculpting, improving endurance, and building strength. 

At Uplift, there is also an outdoor class that meets at 6:00 p.m. and is an hour long. This class combines jogging, speedwork, strength training circuits, and plyometrics. This class is perfect for those of you who have some running experience, though pace is not important.    There's also a Friday night Happy Hour class, which is ideal for those of you who want to combine fitness with an active social life. Following the class, you'll get a free glass of wine, giving you the perfect opportunity to meet the other women in your class and catch up with your workout friends.    Pricing varies based on packages.
