Robert Brace—a celebrity personal trainer who's danced as a soloist for the Metropolitan Opera Ballet—may be from London, but he wanted to create a workout perfect for time-crunched New Yorkers who want to see results. And that’s how NYlean25 was born. Today, he and his team challenge clients with 25-minute workouts that incorporate interval training and constantly changing drills to keep bodies engaged. The instructors also help students maintain good form throughout the workout to ensure each exercise's effectiveness. Additional support, such as meal planning, speeds clients toward goals such as losing weight, becoming more toned, and passing the arm-wrestling portion of job interviews.
The trainers encourage their clients to push themselves and make the most of every minute—but they're not afraid to have a little fun, either. In fact, Robert helped comedian Mark Malkoff achieve six-pack abs in 28 days, and he taught the crew at PIX11 how to get fit even while they wore their nice work clothes, instead of the leather pants and corsets most often seen at the gym.
