Best of New York 2007 • Health & Self

Best Prenatal Workout

  • Physique 57

    24 W. 57th St., Ste. 805, 212-399-0570

    When you’re pregnant, you want to get the benefits of the workout you love, but you can and should do only about half of your usual exercise. Physique 57’s Tanya Becker and Megan Hicks devised a pregnant-women-only class ($33 per class) where students (pending written permission from their doctor) get a modified version of the ballet-based core-strengthening work developed by the now-defunct Lotte Berk studio. Ab exercises normally done with your back against the wall are instead performed by leaning against a specially designed wedge for support, for example. Moms who return within six months of their delivery get a 20 percent discount on a pack of twenty classes.
