Chaise-ing Our Dreams: City Fun With Healthy Bunhead

My friend Jordan, Healthy Bunhead, invited me to her friend Anna's test out class at Chaise Fitness. It was a good combo of pilates, dance, and strength training. Chaise was started  by a former NYCB dancer and her former competitive figure skater mother. The studio was in the building I used to live in during college and I hadn't been back in that area since I graduated. During class we used this adjustable chair, overhead bungees, and a ball. It didn't seem as if we were doing anything too crazy, but my arms and abs were shaking. I really liked that it felt like I was getting a good workout and sweating but at the same time we didn't hold anything too too long. I can't wait to feel my obliques tomorrow. That's a muscle I've always wanted to work on and surely if I kept this up I would have Victoria's Secret abs. I was a little sweaty in that post-workout pic, but that's how you know it was a good workout. 

After class, we walked the UES and got some fruity goodness from Juice Gen. Jordan is a friend I need to hang out with way more. The girl loves to take class, discuss dancer things, and is always up for a spontaneous photo shoot. Today was a good day.
