The start of something big.

Physique 57 was one of the first barre-based, boutique fitness studios to pop up in New York City in 2006. It was born from Jennifer and Tanya’s shared love of the original barre class, The Lotte Berk Method. With a deep understanding of how barre workouts can strengthen, lengthen and tone with incredibly fast results, they designed their signature 57-minute workout.

The Physique 57 approach helped jumpstart a global boutique fitness phenomenon, becoming a fast favorite of wellness enthusiasts like Kelly Ripa and Sarah Jessica Parker. Just months after opening, even the waitlists had waitlists.

Spreading self-love worldwide.

In 2013, Physique 57 led the barre sensation overseas, opening its first studio in Dubai. It has since expanded around the world, with multiple locations across the U.S., Dubai, Bangkok, Mumbai and Manila. To help clients bring fitness into their home and daily lives, the method was released as a DVD workout series in 2009 and eventually converted into fresh, online workout challenges. Clients can access classes live or on demand wherever they are.

Today, Jennifer and Tanya continue to develop the brand around an entire wellness mindset. Physique 57 is now more than a workout regimen. It’s a lifestyle, built around frequent, highly effective exercise, body positivity and an ever-growing community of support.

“Falling in love with yourself first doesn’t make you vain or selfish. It makes you indestructible.”
