If “I can’t get to the gym…” sounds like a valid excuse for not exercising, think again: Those words don’t hold water here, because inSHAPE’s trainers meet clients at work, at home, and pretty much anywhere else. Avid runner and personal trainer Jill Redfern opened her studio in 1997 and has been tailoring workouts to fit client’s schedules ever since. Although Pilates is her main focus, fitness regimens incorporate Bosu balls, Central Park circuit training (just a half-block away), and pre- and-postnatal workouts. Clients who do visit the studio find a white, airy room (one client at a time), sparse equipment, and hardwood floors. The feel is not unlike a dance rehearsal space, and the buff mommies coming and going seem well on their way to sculpting ballerina bodies. The studio also offers “bridal training” (nutrition and exercise to facilitate a lower-stress wedding day), dietary counseling, and deep-tissue and Thai massage.
