New York, NY – April 13, 2023 – The Fit Guide (TFG) has launched its international rating system for fitness clubs, gyms, and studios in New York City and Physique 57 has been named one of the top 5 clubs.

Unlike the long-established and respected rating systems for restaurants and hotels, there has been no such global authority for the fitness industry until now. TFG’s comprehensive and independent evaluations cover over 250 objective standards created in collaboration with leading hospitality and fitness industry experts.

The evaluation process covers all aspects of a truly premium fitness experience, including reception service, group class experience, facilities, technology, and online presence. Out of the fifty clubs evaluated in New York, only five achieved the highest accolade, The Fit Guide 5-Star Award, which highlights an exceptional overall experience. Physique 57 Soho was among these industry-leading clubs.

Matt Lavender, Co-founder of TFG and CEO of the hospitality consultancy, Enlites, said, “I’m excited to bring quality assurance concepts that have proven so successful in the world of hospitality to the premium fitness industry. One of our primary goals was to create a professional, thorough and objective evaluation process, and we’re proud to say that we have achieved just that.”

Physique 57 was born from Jennifer Maanavi and Tanya Becker’s shared love of the original barre class. With a deep understanding of how barre workouts can strengthen and sculpt bodies with incredibly fast results, they designed their signature 57-minute workout.

The workout method is a next-level barre experience, incorporating rigorous interval training and creative choreography. Dynamic, world-class trainers deliver this heart-pumping, body-sculpting program, proven to supercharge.

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. Since its inception, the company has developed a lifestyle brand that represents service, quality, expertise, innovation, attention to detail, market leadership, and results.

“Being one of only a few NYC fitness studios to receive The Fit Guide 5-Star Award for exceptional overall experience is a tremendous honor. Jack and Matt set extremely high standards for the industry, and we achieved excellence for nearly every metric. The Fit Guide will be a vital resource for fitness consumers and studio owners alike. I’m thrilled that after 17 years, Physique 57 continues to set the “barre” high for delivering barre fitness with a laser focus on high-volume hospitality”, stated Maanavi.

You can either visit their NY area studios located in Soho, Brooklyn, and Hoboken or explore their national and international locations as well as their other digital offerings.
