FIT FOR FALL
Imagine a jump rope class without the high-impact or the whiplash. If you want truly toned arms, Air-Ropes TW is the workout for you. Smart Workout, located in Midtown on 40th street between Park and Lexington, offers an escape from the factory-like experience of the typical NYC gym. Founded by Elaine Platt in 2007, Smart Workout makes offers classes limited to six participants creates a warm, at-home atmosphere - and you can guarantee that everyone will know your name.
Come September, Smart Workout is featuring its brand new class, Air Ropes TW. The "TW" is a double entendre for Total Workout and Trompoline-Wave. Platt wanted to make a class that was more than just an arm workout, but also a combination of cardio, balance, upper and lower body. The workout usesthe air ropes to makeyour arms burn like no other, a trampoline to maximize cardio impact and increase agility, and Wave, a C-shaped stepperto incorporate balance and cardio into the already arm-intensive workout. Platt asserts that the 60-minute class is a one-stop shop for every fitness need, "it targets cardio, balance, alignment, toning, this class addresses it all. If you did nothing but this class, you wouldn't need to do another thing."
