Physique57 has finally found its way to Manila and settled in the heart of Bonifacio Global City. The newest barre studio in Metro Manila traces its roots back to The Big Apple. Physique57 aims to sculpt bodies and change lives through challenging barre-based workouts.
Physique57’s workouts use your own body weight to create a resistance. This tones the muscles in your arms, thighs, seat, and abs to the point of fatigue. Afterwards, deep stretching exercises are included to provide relief post-workout. They call this process Interval Overload. Their instructors are trained to execute their signature choreographed routines to upbeat music. Their positive personalities also motivate you to push through the entire workout.
Each session with Physique57 lasts for 57 minutes, hence their name. Every minute maximizes the toning and movement in your arms, abs, thighs, and seat. Their method has inspired many barre-based workout studios in the Philippines and abroad.
Physique57 was established in 2005 by Jennifer Vaughan Maanavi, an Ivy League Wall Street professional. The idea for Physique57 came to her when her favorite fitness studio announced that they were closing its doors. That fitness studio was The Lotte Berk Method. Named after the modern ballet dancer Lotte Berk, the routine incorporates dance and rhythm into a form of exercise. This inspired Physique57’s own Interval Overload. Determined to reinvent the fitness industry, Jennifer teamed up with Tanya Becker to create Physique57. Tanya Becker was a leading Lotte Berk instructor in the US at the time. They soon opened their first studio at 24 W. 57th Street in New York City in 2006. Later on, they opened another branch in the Hamptons and other parts of New York City. They have since opened studios in Los Angeles, Dubai, Bangkok, and Mumbai. This now includes Manila, since they recently opened their branch last July 9.
