The Gym Project

This week I visited the May Center for Health, Fitness and Sport
(visit I finally had the chance to visit this amazing and well-known center, not only for its sports facilities but also for its lectures and events. The center is conveniently located in Upper East Side. I tried the Pilates with the band and the ball class, which I enjoyed thoroughly.

Score card

Facilities: 8/10

The women’s changing room is on the fifth floor where you can get a free towel but you need your own lock for the locker room. The shower room is spacious and clean with plenty of soap and shampoo. There is also a cosy cafe on the same floor.

Variety of classes: 10/10

Plenty of classes to choose from: Pilates and yoga, to cardio detox, power strength, and spinning but also latin low impact class, move and groove and numerous classes in the pool as for example, aquacise and splash dance!

Rate of difficulty: 8/10

The pilates with the band and the ball isn’t really for pilates beginners but you can give it a go even if you are one! The ball helps you align your body and the band to better master the pilates postures by gaining flexibility. Nice, slow but with significant results especially on the stomach and thighs. Try it!
