Class + studio: atTAin Definition @ Tracy Anderson Method
Location: UES, Tribeca (NYC)
Other cities: Hamptons, LA, Madrid, London (coming soon!)
Length: 50 mins
Description: Mix of cardio + sculpting. Use props & lots of repetition on each move. Sculpting moves are dance inspired (def takes practice). Teachers do not speak throughout the class + do not assist you, have to follow along.
Sweat level: 10/10 – Room is heated and you will sweat in places you didn’t think possible
Tone level: 8/10 – Incredibly toning if you’re experienced, might be harder to feel it if you have trouble keeping up with the moves.
Cult level: 10/10 – Sorry, but true! Lol, most people who come here are members (+ a lot come 2x a day!!) It’s not really meant for a-la-carte class goers.
Sneakers/props: Sneakers and maybe 10 bottles of water.
Shower/locker situation: Gorgeous! One of the best parts of coming here is getting ready after. Lots of showers and space to get ready.
Vibe: It can definitely come across as pretentious (esp. If you’re not a member) but it’s so luxe you’ll definitely feel extensive just being there.
Similar to: Body By Simone (Simone used to work at Tracy!)
Extras: Know when member classes vs. non-member classes are. atTAin is the best one for your first time. The smoothie bar is awesome!
Go back? Used to go a lot, but for $45 a class, it’s not always worth it for us (considering there’s little help from instructor) + hard to follow along when you don’t go often.
