Have 50 minutes to spare? Then head over to boutique Lagree-style fitness studio Form50 in Astoria, Queens to turn your workout routine on its head. We should note: this is not your average Pilates experience.
Designed by Sebastien Lagree, the studio uses the patented Megaformer—basically a Pilates Reformer but with pulleys, weights, grasps, and glides—to sculpt and tone every muscle you’ve got. But the Megaformer is only the half of it.
Form50 combines this butt-busting machine with the low-impact, high-intensity Lagree method workout to create one heart-pumping, adrenaline-fueled sweat session.
There’s a reason celebrities and A-listers (like Rihanna) can’t get enough of this high-energy full-body workout. And at Form50, they mix in cardio, strength, and mobility training (plus some bumpin’ tunes), to create an experience you won’t find at any other studio in the neighborhood.
But don’t worry if you’re still trying to figure out your pike from your plank. With only nine machines, Form50’s trainers provide a more personalized group workout, coaching you through the motions and constant tension to work your muscles to fatigue.
Form50 first-timer? Take FORM50 ESSENTIALS to get a handle on the basics before going full-throttle with TOTAL BODY.
For all you early birds, you can check out Form50 on 31st St. first thing at 6:30am on weekdays. But if you’d rather hit the snooze button (we get it), they’ve got plenty of other options to fit your schedule.
So, grab those grippy socks and get ready to reform your fitness at Form50.
