Body By Simone - ABC
BBS ABC is a dance cardio class sprinkled with arms, back, and core strength exercises.
Fitness clothes + sneakers.
Format is typically: (i) Warm Up, (ii) Dance Cardio for 5 mins, (iii) arms using lightweights and wrist weights for 10 mins (iv) dance cardio for 5 mins, (v) arms using resistance bands for 10 mins, (vi) pure cardio for 5 mins, (vii) arms/back using bands/weights/planks for 10 mins, (viii) core for 7 mins, and (ix) cool down.
If you’re not a dancer (I’m not), don’t worry, the dance cardio portion is less dance and more cardio/jumping. The instructors are super welcoming and emphasize that a dance background is not needed-just keep moving.
The strength portions are challenging, not impossible. You’ll most likely be sore.
The cardio portions are high intensity. You’ll be breathing heavy.
First Timers: N/A.
Returners: $35 per class.
BBS offers packages that reduce the per class price and they also offer unlimited classes per week/month.
BBS has a dance vibe. I felt like I was auditioning for the sequel of “Center Stage”.
Studios themselves are bare boned, but clean.
Lots of mirrors in the studio. Love this, but hated it when I caught a glimpse of myself trying to dance…
Book early on ClassPass to avoid high credit fees.
The Chelsea studios have no windows, so be prepared to be warmer than usual in the summer.
