Well-ventilated, equipped with Woodway treadmills and taught by elite runners, this is the perfect studio for runners and non-runners alike. It’s a lot of running, but it’s far from boring – think speed and hill intervals at different paces. Expect longer intervals and mid effort endurance work over short sprints, max effort. Short and long distance runners can use this to increase power and work on difference paces. I’m not great at pacing myself when it comes to longer distances, so this was perfect. The playlist and coaching were brilliant, there wasn’t a single moment of boredom or monotony despite it being a running-only class.
The sleek Nomad studio is also very close to Y7 and Anya if you fancy a post-run stretch, or refuel at Madison Square Eats or Eataly. They also have a second studio in NoHo.
