Jillian Michaels BodyShred Class at Crunch Gym

Living in the big apple there are tonnnns of new fitness classes everyday. If you love fitness (and have a lot of money) you can pretty much find any sort of class you are looking for. Which is one of the reasons it would be reallllllly hard for me to leave :).

My latest adventures found me at the brand new Crunch Gym on 66th street and third on the upper east side. It’s super close to the trains (which is a HUGE plus).

For the first time ever I was taking a Jillian Michaels 30 minutes shred class live an in person. I’ve taken the class at home and it’s been brutal so I was mentally prepared to do some WORK! It would be followed by an appropriately named “Ass and Abs”.

The facility was gorgeous. It had several floors with all of your favorite equipment including the lockers which already have the key in locks on them. This is literally my favorite thing in the world because I am not a fan of carrying lockers around. (Gyms around the world, can we all just get on the same page?! NO MORE LOCKS).

I may or may not be exaggerating when I say that these 30 minutes were SO HARD. The movements are done in 10 second intervals and before you know it you are doing another bodyweight exercise. From burpees, to high knees, it is a fun HIIT type of workout that will literally keep you on your toes the entire time.

The following Ass and Abs class also consisted of cardio but we did a ton of floor exercises as well including lots of floor bridges and crunches. Both classes were fabulous and I totally plan on taking them again!

The Crunch 66th Street location as well as the other Crunch locations are the best gyms in NYC, so if you are looking for a good one–check it out!

p.s. I’ll be back on Monday as I am heading out to Florida solo for a few days…enjoy your weekend!

ahhh does it make me OLD if I say my FAVE FEATURE OF A GREAT GYM is just clean? 🙂 Super clean. And nice showers 🙂
outside of that so much of it is about the instructors and the people and the community they both create.
I love me some Jillan as well.

I remember loving the Crunch fitness videos when I was in college (how old do I feel now?). Going to a class in person sounds awesome. Hope you had a great time in Florida! It must be nice to escape all the crazy weather we’ve been having on the East Coast this winter!

I used to do Jillian Michaels 30 days to shreds workout, and it was killer, I can only imagine how rough this class was Nellie. I’m sure I would be heaving and panting on the ground begging for the pain to subside. When I worked at a gym, I made sure to go to every abdominal class they offered. My abs are killer; they are just hidden under a small layer of fat lol
