Physique 57
With bodies of work including Chrissie Teigen, Kelly Ripa and Norma Kamali, much ink has been spilled about this firm’s ballet barre-based 57-minute workout. Instructors, such as Christina Jensen, lead intervals of cardio, strength training and stretching, all in the name of long, lean muscles. Instead of sneakers, they wear the studio’s own socks with added traction. “For stiletto wearers, grounding your heels is good for the Achilles,” said Jensen.

The Clients:
Physical therapist Morgan Manasse Borsen (who recommends the method to patients) and tech entrepreneur Victoria Meakin have been coming to Physique 57 six times a week since the first studio opened in 2006. There are now seven locations, in such areas as New York, the Hamptons, Scarsdale, N.Y., Los Angeles and Dubai.
