Pop Physique

Class + Studio: Pop Physique

Location: Nomad (NYC) + Bowery (NYC)

Other Cities: San Marino (CA), Silverlake (CA)

Length: 60 mins.

Description: Ballet style barre-based class, focusing on isometric, low impact moves on + off the mat and barre. Equipment such as light weights, bands, and ball are used. Class begins with a warmup (full body movements) + arm & core exercises and is followed by a long thigh and glute series, ending with core and a stretch (with stretching segments throughout class, too!)

Sweat Level: 3/10 – Like most barre classes, sweat level here is low.

Tone Level: 7/10 – Very dependent on your teacher and weight level, but there is potential for a solid tone!

Cult Level: 2/10 – Very low cult level. New faces each time.

Sneakers/Props: Barre socks required!

Shower/Locker Situation: No showers, there are digi locks and changing rooms.

Vibe: Very cute studio aesthetic (clean, new equipment and cool +  girly decor). Instructors are nice, but we wouldn’t say they’re next level … they don’t really try to get  to know you here (like they would at Flybarre or Physique 57).

Similar to: Barre Belle (Toronto), ‘Signature’ at Physique 57, Pure Barre, The Bar Method, ‘Barre’ at Exhale.

Extras: On ClassPass (generally #10andUnder). Over the year, they’ve closed quite a few locations down. Many first time deals/specials ($25 first class, $150 first month unlimited) and often found on discount sites like Gilt.

Go Back? We haven’t gone in years. If there was a specific instructor that came highly recommended, we’d go. Otherwise, probably not high on our list.

    This company is super shady!

    Just before Pop Physique closed a bunch of their LA locations, they blasted out email promos advertising $10 classes at all of their locations. They encouraged their customers to buy these promos knowing all of these studios would be closing down ASAP!

    Tons of people bought them only to find out their local studio closed pop a few days after. No refunds. Everyone forced to drive 1hr across town to the only studio in central LA or to just not use them. What a huge waste of money.

    There’s a few articles out about this. Also check out their Yelp page for their Silverlake location— it’s a shitshow.
