From Our Editors

21 years ago, Ellie Herman worked as a professional dancer and choreographer, running her own company in San Francisco. She loved her work, but she had bills to pay. So, naturally, she took on a side job; she became the professional wrestler known as "Ruth Less." As soon as she began tossing fellow wrestlers around, she incurred a serious knee injury that threatened to end both of her careers. Luckily for her, the nearby St. Francis Hospital of Dance Medicine offered surgery-free rehabilitation through Pilates. Ellie did the workouts for months, and returned to her company an even better dancer than she'd been before her injuries. Later, as a masters student at NYU, Pilates once again helped her recover from hip pain. She discovered an ability to innovate within the bounds of Pilates, and resolved to become a teacher.

She opened the aptly named Ellie Herman Studio, where she continues to teach today. True to her inspiration, she uses Pilates as a basis on which to innovate better forms of corrective movement. So far, she's written nine books on the subject. She invented her own piece of equipment, the Pilates Springboard, which compresses the size and cost of the more traditional Pilates wall unit. She also developed a blend of Pilates and gait training, to help people stave of injury by becoming conscious of the way they move their legs in every day life, which helps to prevent things such as rolling ankles or randomly kicking strangers.

New York City Gym And Fitness Center Guide

Living in New York City means city-dwellers have the high life at their fingertips almost 24/7. Sometimes, though, living it up can take a real toll, and weight loss can be hard when one lives down the street from five top-notch restaurants. That's why New York City gyms are so important; the city has some of the best places for New York City fitness.

At New York City Pilates, getting fit is never boring. This trendy full-body workout has scores of devotees in the five boroughs. Uptown Pilates, multiple Citysearch winner for best Pilates in the city, is a second-floor studio for the serious student. The instructors are among the most experienced in the state, and they help clients create a personalized Pilates experience that helps them push their individual boundaries.

For those who want to take charge of their own workout, a traditional NYC gym is a great place to lift weights, ride stationary bikes, and get fit. Locals have been going wild for NYC Crunch, a full-service gym with multiple locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn. In addition to the standard free weights, machines, treadmills, and pull-up bars, Crunch offers a number of high-intensity classes. Try one of their unique trainer-led sessions, like pogo stick or hula-hoop workouts.

Sometimes, one just needs to cool down and find their center. New York City's yoga studios are some of the best in the world. One of the most popular yoga classes is located right in the center of beautiful Central Park. Private sessions occur there throughout the week, but daily public sessions are led by Open Air Yoga throughout the week. Balance and strengthen the body and mind with a group of dozens at NYC's most famous oasis.

There's no one right way to meet fitness goals in NYC. Whether it’s relieving stress with yoga or pumping iron, find a favorite method and stick with it!
