Radan Sturm says he can transform your body in 30 days. His Liftonic studio offers small-group, focused weight training that combines dumbbells, balance, and core moves. Each bench is fronted by its own TV screen so you can follow along with the instructor while working towards 100 percent muscle fatigue. If that sounds too intense, Liftonic also offers LT101, which lays the groundwork with weight-training fundamentals.




TS Fitness

328 East 61st St.

212-755-3481

With its small class size (eight people max) and super attentive instructors (often owner Naom Tamir himself), TS Fitness is an oasis in the sweat world, giving you room to be your best self, literally and figuratively. Tamir believes in the power of education and the mantra #TogetherStronger. Devotees use words like “phenomenal” and “gamechanger.” Before and after photos back it up!




Refine Method

117 West 72nd St.

If you've ever dreamed of crafting a ballet body, Refine Method founder Brynn Putnam says “back away from the barre.” Instead, the former ballerina says you need to “train like an athlete.” Refine Method was born of Putnam's journey to find better solutions for her clients when she realized that traditional barre workouts weren't cutting it. The result is a combo that mixes circuit training with cardio. With three locations and an app for easy scheduling you'll be in prima form in no time.
