Introducing FITiST, New York’s New Online Fitness Program (Join Here!)
If your goal of whipping yourself into shape for bikini season has fallen by the wayside like so many hours of True Blood, worry not. There’s every reason to get back on track for fall, including the new and excellent fitness site FITiST, which feels like a combination of a personal trainer, a workout buddy, and a nutrition expert rolled into one easy-to-use online buddy.
What’s offered are ten different workout plans curated by a team of fitness and nutrition experts (including sweat guru David Kirsh), who’ve culled from top New York classes, studios, and trainers to bring you a perfect cross-training workout. Choose a plan (the 26.3, the Slim, the New Mom, the Rookie), book classes (the Slim plan, at $500 a month, offers 18 classes: 6 cycle classes, 4 core pilates, 4 performance, and 4 yoga classes), and manage your schedule, all from the FITiST site. FITiST members also have access to last-minute classes at a discounted rate, and can browse tips like how often you need to work out in order to loose weight, and what the four best bike-able destinations are in New York (an LA site is in the works and coming soon in September).
Fitist has a deal for September called September Body. For women ($430) it includes two cycling classes, two pilates/core classes, one personal training session at Aerospace gym, two performance classes, and a one-on-one session with Sharon Richter to hatch an eating plan. Men ($525) get four flight classes, four performance classes, one personal training day at Aerospce, and nutrition counseling. Aerospace, if you have not heard, is the super-sleek, machine-free studio created by celeb trainer Michael Olajide. September, although it might not be bikini season anymore, is for back-to-school beginnings. Or perhaps, back to the grind.
To make things easier, the invite-only site has offered BlackBook readers membership.
