ChaiseFitness Private Studio, New York City
Created by mother-daughter duo Lauren and Rachel Piskin, ChaiseFitness Private Studio blends properties of Pilates, ballet and aerobics for an effective, full-body workout. The concepts behind this New York City–based lifestyle studio are derived from Lauren’s past experience as a competitive figure skater and Rachel’s previous career as a professional ballerina. Their studio embraces the “Reinvention Method,” an innovative chair-based approach that incorporates an overhead bungee system to activate core muscles. Students exhaust muscles through repetitive movements, blasting calories while improving flexibility, balance and coordination. By fusing the sculpting power of Pilates with cardio exercise, the Piskins’ core-based workout will deliver a leaner, more toned body no matter the season. ChaiseFitness Private Studio is currently available on Gilt City.
