Two studios for maximum sweat – New York (Nomad) and their latest addition, Brooklyn (Williamsburg). The new studio used to be a bar, so the place is ridiculously cool and decorated – plenty of photo ops. The staff and instructors are lovely and will make sure you have a good time. Fleur was great.
The workout itself was a combination of bodyweight drills, partner work and bag work. Not much technique involved, and I felt that the intensity could have been higher – it felt a little style over substance. That said, the class I did might have been an exception, so I would still give their Ring class a try next time, hopefully with more luck.
