Review: The Class by Taryn Toomey

“Feel free to lose your shit!” bellows the instructor over a throaty Decemberist song.

My classmates scream, grunt and shake in response.

“The Class” by Taryn Toomey is a sweaty body weight workout in Tribeca right next to the Four Seasons. The vibe is upscale hipster and the studio looks like someone at Goop designed it. But the beautiful people in the class move as if they’ve caught the Holy Spirit in a mega church.

Free NYC workouts all summer: Sweat Sessions

Having a fitness habit in NYC can be pricey. So when I hear about free opportunities to experience high-end studios, I like to share the wealth. (Exhibit A, Exhibit B).

It’s almost summer time, and who doesn’t want to get outside, get sweaty and pay $0 for a fitness class?

Every Tuesday night from May through August some of the top fitness studios are offering free classes outside in the Meatpacking District through the Sweat Sessions series.

View the full schedule here.
