City Pulse

By Lauren Torrisi

These random bouts of warm weather we’ve been getting have reminded me of the inevitable. In a few short months, I will be wearing a bikini. Lord only knows this body is not ready to go public. Therefore, on the limited budget I have, I bring you the best deals and steals to keep your abs flat and your thighs thin.

1. The American Health and Fitness Alliance offers 600 passes for free admission to over 150 gyms and classes in NYC. And for only $75, you’re crazy for not taking advantage of this deal. 212.808.0765

2. While those Pilates machines look Greek to me, Real Pilates NYC offers special private lessons for beginners. Get 3 private lessons for $195, and get a toned bod in return. 212.625.0777

3. At the Fitness Collective, $150 gets you 3 personal training sessions, 2 group classes, and 1 nutritional consultation. 3…2…1…skinny!!! 718.499.1849

4. Not feeling very Zen lately? For a mere $30/person, YogaWorks offers unlimited yoga classes for two weeks. No catch just tons of Downward Facing Dog. 212.935.9642.
