Two weeks ago, I was invited by Physique 57 to join them in a special blogger/journalist class and meet & greet with CO-founder Jennifer Maanavi to celebrate their Beverly Hills location’s 2nd birthday! Being obsessed with Barre workouts, I RSVP-ed faster than you can say kale.
Physique 57 celebrity clients include: Demi Moore, Parker Posey, Lisa Rinna, Denise Richards, Lydia Hearst, and Kelly Ripa.
“Physique 57 is an innovative workout program that combines isometric exercises and orthopedic stretches to systematically lengthen and sculpt your muscles and create a beautiful, lean body. Their process is similar to interval training, but they’ve taken that concept to the next level to make it even more effective.
Physique 57’s interval sets use your body’s own weight as resistance, and through dynamic exercises, your muscles are targeted and overloaded to the point of fatigue, then stretched for relief. They call this groundbreaking process Interval Overload which includes muscle-defining arm exercises, intense thigh and seat sequences, waist-chiseling ab moves and fluid stretches.” – Physique57.com
The benefits of the Physique 57 technique include:
- A sculpted physique
- Strong core muscles
- Cardiovascular health
- Long and lean muscles
- Lifted seat
- Strength and endurance
- Improved body alignment
- Increased bone density
I was so excited for my class that I had my outfit picked out the night before. I decided on my black Lululemon Wunder Unders, signature “EAT MORE RABBIT FOOD” DIY tank, black American Apparel leg warmers, and black socks. I was quite proud of this little getup!
I arrived early to the adorable brick corner location in Beverly Hills just steps from Rodeo Drive. The studio has a private parking lot with free validated parking for students (a rarity in LA), which gave me an ear-to-ear smile! I walked up to the front door thinking that the cute corner building would consist of one cozy studio, but boy was I wrong! Don’t judge a book by its cover, or should I say, don’t just a barre studio by it’s front door. I opened the door to a gorgeous naturally lit, exposed brick sanctuary filled with trendy chic workout clothes and Physique 57 décor.
I walked down the staircase and was greeted by a super smiley and very friendly staff member named Janet. She helped me and the other girls sign in and gave us an adorable pair of Physique 57 grippy socks and a huge water bottle. After everyone arrived, we threw on our cute new socks and headed down a long hallway to our studio. The floor to ceiling mirror-lined room was filled with mats, mini exercise balls, weights, and resistance bands. We were introduced to our instructor Sarah who is a professional dancer, certified Vinyasa Flow Yoga teacher, 2 time Marathon finisher, and holistic health coach. What does she not do?! Sarah asked each of us if we had any injuries or complications and gave modifications for a few people in the class that had knee and wrist issues. The personal awareness to students was a change from most group exercise classes where there is no individual attention.
The 57 minute workout started in the center of the room with leg lifts to get our bodies warmed up and then moved right into arms. We burned out our triceps and shoulders with 5lb weights and a couple sets of pushups before heading to the ballet barre. Once we got to the bar we did some extra intense standing thigh work. I felt THE BURN! Even though I take barre classes all the time, my legs would not stop shaking! The moves are simple, pulling away from the barre in a seated position while pulsing up and down, but oh my gosh does it hurt so good! I could literally feel the fat melting off of my thighs with every pulse. Sarah kept coming around to each of us and telling us “only 10 more seconds! Don’t forget to breathe!” Once we finished our last 5 seconds, I was pumped. I had survived the thigh segment! WOO! Or so I thought… Next, we all went to the middle of the room for some “Thigh Dancing” where you sit on your knees and lower your hiney down towards the floor, but don’t fully sit down. Sarah guided us through some intense thigh burning, hip swinging, arm raising, moves along with the music and I couldn’t decide if I wanted laugh or cry. As my legs started to reach full exhaustion, I started laughing and thinking in my head “omg please don’t give out legs, don’t sit down Catherine!” I looked around the class everyone was cracking up, but doing a great job staying in the position! I love that after each segment, you give the muscle a nice deep stretch to lengthen it, to avoid bulking up. We went into another set of pushups where I took the girly knee position. Since I modified to an easier version of pushups for this round, I made sure I went all the way to the floor for each rep, and it felt great.
We moved back to the bar for some “Standing Seat,” which was my favorite. I have absolutely no behind, so any chance to work my back end is fabulous for me. I love “Standing Seat” because not only are you working your gluteus maximus, but your standing leg and lower back as well. It’s like a 3 for 1 deal and the results are lean muscles! Sarah was fabulous and made adjustments to my form and posture to make sure that I was getting the most of the exercise, which I really appreciated. Throughout the class she also gave beginner and advanced options to modify each exercise to everyone’s individual exercise level i.e. rising onto the ball of your feet for more of a challenge or bending your legs for more stability. After giving my derrière a nice lifting workout, it was onto the abs. The first ab exercise was really interesting and super effective! Out of all of the bar classes I’ve tried, I have never done this exercise. We laid down with our backs on the floor, a resistance band laced over the bar, and our legs up, using the resistance bands to stabilize our arms parallel to the floor while we did curls (sit-ups). With every movement I could actually feel my transversus abdominis contracting. We topped off our ab segment with tons of curls on the mats with the addition of the mini exercise balls. I couldn’t wait to do a nice long cobra stretch after that haha. The 57 minute workout concluded with an extra long plank and some deep stretching on the mats, which felt amazing. We celebrated the end of class with a round of applause. I could not believe how challenging the class was!
I love barre classes and am surprised after every class as to how many muscles are engaged without any machines or equipment besides arm weights! Even though I take Bar Method classes all the time, I felt like Physique 57 was a much more challenging workout. It’s a much faster paced class, making it an excellent cardio workout with tons of firming and sculpting benefits. With a new found confidence upon completing the class, I walked over to the meet and greet area feeling muscle fatigue in areas that I had never felt before! It felt as if every inch of my body got a workout that day. We snacked on kale chips and champagne (so classy and cute), while we had a chance to speak with Jennifer Maanavi, one of the CO-founders of Physique 57.
One of the first questions was “Where did the name come from?” Jennifer explained that the first studio was located on 57th street in New York and that they made the class 57 minutes long to fit with the name. Obviously the word physique was a given, because you end up with a smokin’ hot physique after taking this class! A few of the girls that attended the class were big time runners who wanted to know if Physique 57 should be accompanied by another cardio such as running. Jennifer informed us that she had a baby a few months prior to our meeting and took only Physique 57 classes to get back to her pre-baby body. My jaw dropped and I said, “You just had a baby?!” You would have no idea she just gave birth a few months ago by looking at her lean, svelte figure! Her body is stunning! After that answer I was sold and I said bring on the Physique 57! Of course there are always women who are thin and use this class to tone up, but it’s amazing and so inspiring to hear from someone like Jennifer who actually lost weight with this exercise class. She even told us that she took the class a couple times a week up until she gave birth to her new baby! Jennifer talked so passionately about the class and all of her instructors who absolutely adore her back.
I had so much fun at the class and really enjoyed the change of pace from my usual barre class. I was pleasantly surprised how challenging it was and how quickly the 57 minutes went by! Some of my favorite things about physique 57 include:
- Long lean muscles, lifted seat, and better posture with visible results after 2 weeks.
- Personal attention by the instructor to perfect form.
- Small class sizes that are not overwhelming or claustrophobic.
- Modifications for beginners and more advanced students for each exercise.
- No footwear required, all you need is a pair of socks.
- No need to bring any exercise equipment. Mats, exercise balls, weights, and resistance bands are provided.
- Restrooms and showers at the location.
- Excellent cardio and full body toning workout.
- Focuses on problem areas for women.
- Professional teachers with strong dance and/or fitness training backgrounds.
- Fun upbeat music.
- Free validated parking at the Beverly Hills location.
When I was leaving Physique 57, I was given an adorable swag bag with some super fun Physique 57 goodies. The ladies at Physique 57 gifted me with a 2 week challenge of Physique 57 classes, The Physique 57 Solution book, measuring tape, water, grippy socks and BH class schedule! The grippy socks are too cute and extra helpful in class. The little sticky dots along the bottom prevent sliding, while the padded ankle area protects your ankles from rubbing or hurting while on the bar. Grippy socks are recommended for classes, but not 100% necessary. I alternate between my ordinary athletic socks and grippies.
The book was absolutely fabulous. It’s filled with different variations of moves taken from the class, and adapted to do in the comfort of your own home. The book does a great job of describing each move, exercise, and stretch clearly and simply with bullet points and step by step photos, which are extremely helpful for visual learners like myself. I was able to do many of the Physique 57 exercises at home with the use of a chair (as my barre) and dumbbells! The book also contains a 2-week meal plan filled with energy boosting healthy snacks, and clean breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert recipes. There are some fabulous fresh salad dressings that I cannot wait to make this summer. The recipes in the book follow a similar philosophy that of RFFMBT. Most of them include fresh whole foods that are easy to prepare. I really love that Physique 57 is not just a workout, but a lifestyle. Most workouts consist of only that… the workout, but Physique 57 has the idea of a sculpted, beautiful body down to a science with their combination of interval training and suggested healthy recipes to reveal those long lean muscles you work so hard for in class.
If you are a fan of Cardio Barre, The Bar Method, or any other barre workout, Physique 57 will give it a run for it’s money, it is quite challenging and so much fun!
Physique 57’s is giving one lucky RFFMBT reader one complimentary Physique 57 class, at any of their locations!

Sounds like a great experience at the studio!
I’d love to win a day at the studio because I feel I really need to try something fun and new to get me motivated to push myself in different ways. Sounds like a great environment, too!
MariaJuly 6, 2012 at 11:00 am (11 years ago)
I would live to win as a mom of a one eat old who works as a teacher, we caregivers never take enough time for ourselves. I love the idea of Physique 57 and would be honored to win a chance to try it in NYC.
LeeAnnJuly 6, 2012 at 11:13 am (11 years ago)
Thank you so much for this post! I have been wanting to do a barre workout so badly, being a former dancer, but there aren’t any in my small Texas town. I just ordered the book from Barnes and Noble and cannot wait to give it a go! Thank you!
ChristinJuly 6, 2012 at 11:23 am (11 years ago)
I love trying new types of workouts and pushing myself – especially in strengthing/toning classes (because I am so weak). I also love group workouts because I need other people to push me. So Physique 57 seems like a perfect workout for me!
lisa saldana-goodsonJuly 6, 2012 at 11:24 am (11 years ago)
As a workout junkie I am always looking for a way to stop obsessing over food and focus on varying workouts to keep me busy. Would love to try physique 57!
ToniJuly 6, 2012 at 11:33 am (11 years ago)
I use the DVDs for physique 57 and it is so hard. Sometimes I yell at the tv, “I am not a dancer! I can not do that.” I would love to actually go to a real class and I am 2 hours from NYC so I could make it a little vacation. Glad to hear your good reviews and I always do wonder if normal people get good results with it.
JenJuly 6, 2012 at 11:53 am (11 years ago)
I just moved to Los Angeles from Seattle for my first “big girl” job after graduating. It had been hard adjusting, and finding the right work out plan. I would love to try Physique 57, and hopefully get into shape!
Sam BangsJuly 6, 2012 at 11:55 am (11 years ago)
I would love to win! In addition to trying to lose this last stubborn 10lbs, I’m studying to be a personal trainer and am in LOVE with everything fitness. I’m always looking for new classes and haven’t been able to do any of the barre style ones yet because of the cost. This would be a great way to jump in!

I’d like to try Physique 57 because I had way too many sweets for my birthday this week. It’d be a nice change from my usual spinning classes. I live in NYC so it’s perfect!
Krystal AmandaJuly 6, 2012 at 12:15 pm (11 years ago)
I would love to try Physique 57 to improve my flexibility!

Jessica VartanianJuly 6, 2012 at 12:55 pm (11 years ago)
Winning the Physique 57 + Giveaway sounds like a great opportunity to experience a different and fresh way to exercise.
Personally, if I won the giveaway would give the class to my little sister that is a current student at Manhattan College. Exercising is a wonderful way to relieve stress, stay healthy and keep your mind focused and centered for all of the stresses college hands you. I would love to be able to give my little sister this as a gift, so she could spend a little time away from her books to relax and rejuvenate during this coming Fall while she is in school.
Jessica VartanianJuly 6, 2012 at 12:57 pm (11 years ago)

I would love to win a complimentary class because I am gym rat, but feel like I’m stuck in a bit of a rut with spinning/weights/running/yoga/pilates. It seems like a good variety, but I’d like to challenge myself with something new that jumpstarts my enthusiasm.
Btw, just found your blog through pinterest and I love it!
RebeccaJuly 6, 2012 at 1:26 pm (11 years ago)
I’ve been dying to try Physique 57! I’m in a bit of a workout rut and would be grateful for something new to try!
KerryJuly 6, 2012 at 1:38 pm (11 years ago)
I don’t think we have these classes here where I live in the UK, London no doubt will, we don’t even have a decent pilates club. The exercises you described sound similar to Callanetics, I have an old VHS that I had put onto a DVD & even tho it looks dated the exercises kill me every time, instead of a barre I use the back of a very high chair. Will google anyway but has anyone found any vids on YouTube/online that I can do at home?
Donna F.July 6, 2012 at 1:41 pm (11 years ago)
I would love to win because I have wanted to try Physique 57 classes for so long! I have seen great results from barre style classes but I’m very intrigued by this one! I also love the idea of individualized attention during class because I do have an old wrist injury. Thanks for the chance!
LeiahJuly 6, 2012 at 1:44 pm (11 years ago)
I would love to try Physique 57 to kick start a new exercise routine and hopeully improve my recent lack of motivation!

I just started reading your blog, and I have to say, it’s inspiring! I’ve dealt with similar stuff to you, and your suggestions really helped me get my game face back! I love the idea of the physique 57 classes! I would like to attend one because I have a background in dance as well, and any exercise that is creative to combine several types of movement into one class is perfect for me!
LaurenJuly 6, 2012 at 8:06 pm (11 years ago)
I have this month decided to change my life. I never had weight issues growing up, so I took my body for granted. Now I am 15 lbs more than I need to be as an actor. I’m tired of diet fads and processed lean cuisines. I made a promise to myself to totally change my lifestyle. I live in Brooklyn, and have already totally altered my kitchen. Now I need a workout to fall in love with. I think Physique 57 might be it.
Andrea Bai @ Glam Hungry MomJuly 6, 2012 at 8:19 pm (11 years ago)
I’ve been interested in barre. It seems like a fun challenge!
I love your blog! XOXO
ElishiaJuly 6, 2012 at 10:34 pm (11 years ago)
I read your post about Physique 57 a few days ago and found out that there IS a location 20 minutes from my house. I am a doctoral candidate, so I make very little money right now, and I was wanting to try to the class out to make sure I enjoy it and that it would be beneficial to invest in the classes. I am currently working with a nutritionist to help solve my “leaky gut” problem–I am currently allergic to 58 foods. Apparently, I let one allergy go for too long because I didn’t know about it (casein), and now my body is uber inflamed. Ah! My goal is to heal my body from the inside out this year.
I also have a goal to compete in some type of race this year. I am into swimming, and I thoroughly enjoy running, but my knees are out of whack, and my cartilage is sort of breaking into little pieces. I am so very excited about this process of working with the nutritionist–many of my symptoms have already disappeared, but I know that if I want to compete in races, I need to strengthen my knees to realign them. The Physique 57 class really seems like something that will give me the strength training, in a formal setting, necessary to meet my goals. I kind of let my body go (lost muscle mass) while focusing on my PhD coursework for the past 2.5 years, and I really hope that I can focus on my overall health now. Physique 57 might be the structure I need for that.
This is a really long post, and I’m sorry. But these are my real reasons. Thank you for the opportunity!
MaryJuly 6, 2012 at 10:47 pm (11 years ago)

JessicaJuly 7, 2012 at 7:34 am (11 years ago)
I HAVE to win this workout! I have been DYING to go to a class at physique 57. I have been studying for the bar and this would be the perfect treat after working my brain off to get my butt back in shape after being forced to spend 13 hours a day with said-butt in a chair.
TrooppetrieJuly 7, 2012 at 7:44 am (11 years ago)
This looks just like what I need to keep going. my husband deployed mid Febuary and I have lost 55 pounds. i am not telling him so i can surprise him when he comes home this fall. it is definitly getting harder. This is such a hard secret to keep. My friends know but i do not talk about it on my blog or facebook because i want to surprise him. When we can web cam I only let him see head shots.
Purely TwinsJuly 7, 2012 at 9:30 am (11 years ago)
love physique workouts and have always wanted to try a class! we love their concept of fine toning every little muscle!
KristinJuly 7, 2012 at 5:56 pm (11 years ago)
As a mom of two girls under four years of age, I still have some work to do on my body. I live the idea of intense training and stretching with a whole diet! I’d be thrilled to try this!
LauraJuly 7, 2012 at 9:02 pm (11 years ago)
This sounds great! As a grad student my options are limited to the school gym and outside. I would love a chance to mix things up and try a new workout. More importantly, it would be a way to mix fun into working out.
Jessica EstevesJuly 7, 2012 at 9:08 pm (11 years ago)
That sounds like an amazing time at the studio and such a great experience!!I have heard alot about these type of classes lately and am very interested in trying them. I love their concept of fine toning every little muscle! I have been trying to eat healthier and become more fit, to feel better in everyday life but also show a postitive example to friends and family. This would just be another step on my future goal 🙂
beritJuly 8, 2012 at 2:54 am (11 years ago)
Too be honest I am not a fan of a workout program that puts lost inches before physical ability. In the end you should train to become a better athlete and not some watered-down version of a Victoria Secret angel. And seriously, champagne after a work-out? Brrrr.
MichelleJuly 8, 2012 at 5:25 am (11 years ago)
I reluctantly tried a barre class a few weeks ago and have been hooked ever since! I suggest anyone who hasn’t tried it, to check it out at least once. My class was a bunch of first timers and I’ve seen the same people coming back it works out muscles you wouldn’t even think of! It also is something that is good for people who are just starting to work out or who have been working out for a while.
On a side note: Catherine I was wondering, your picture at the very end of your weight loss page, where did you get those tights!? I love your style and just had to ask because I saw your picture and initially thought wow she is amazing and such an inspiration and then secondly where did she get those tights ha. I love your blog.
Stefanie HuberJuly 8, 2012 at 6:35 am (11 years ago)
I love that you posted this because I am such a true believer in this program. I have struggled with weight forever and have done every workout imaginable! I have gone from P90X to yoga to half marathoning and NOTHING has transformed my body like Physique 57! In 8 days I saw results and I actually looked forward to my workouts because my results were so immediate. I wanted to push myself every day. It even strengthened muscles in my body that were so damaged from an accident, I thought they were useless! This program rescued me from years of hating my body. Now I can’t wait to wear shorts in the summer and go to the pool! Love your blog, love your outlook on health and definately love Physique 57!
KatieJuly 8, 2012 at 12:16 pm (11 years ago)
I love your website! Such great tips on fitness, food, and staying healthy.
I would love to try out the Physique 57 workout. I live in New York and am always on the lookout for new fitness classes.
KateJuly 8, 2012 at 2:43 pm (11 years ago)
Great blog/website! I would love to try Physique 57! I’m trying to loose baby weight – gained 60 pounds during my first pregnancy and am working soooo hard to get it off. I’m using weight watchers, but also eating healthy food – lots of salads and spinach and kale chips for snacks. I signed up for my FIRST half marathon in September, but really need to get down in weight to help me with my training. Thanks for the opportunity!
Katie KoJuly 8, 2012 at 5:56 pm (11 years ago)
I would love to try the Physique 57 program for the same reason as many others – it seems like a terrific way to be healthier both mentally and physically!
GinaJuly 9, 2012 at 8:42 am (11 years ago)
I’m running my first half marathon this fall and my friend recommended that I try a class at Physique 57. This would be a great chance to do so!!! Plus my b-day is later this month so it would be an awesome b-day present!!! 🙂
Erin MajorJuly 9, 2012 at 8:56 am (11 years ago)
I really want to try physique 57 to balance out my aerobic and weight training routine. I have heard a lot of good things about it- so I am hoping I win!! 🙂
StacyJuly 9, 2012 at 9:23 am (11 years ago)
Hey! I stumbled upon your site recently and am really enjoying it!
Have you ever been able to do a giveaway for Pure Barre? If not, perhaps they could sponsor one? I’d really love to try them, and they are actually in my city (New Orleans).
Thanks for being an inspiration!
RaeleenJuly 9, 2012 at 9:32 am (11 years ago)
Hi Catherine! First of all I love your blog! I like the approach you take to being healthy and happy! I would like to take a class at Physique 57 because I think it sounds fun and challenging! To me nothing makes me feel healthier, happier, or stronger than completing something that is really tough. I also would like a little help in the bum area 🙂 Thanks girl, and keep up the amazing work!

I’d LOOOOVE to take this class in LA. I need to find a class that exciting and challenging. Lately finding the motivation to get into a pilates or yoga has completely fallen off the way-side. xoxo
LaurenJuly 9, 2012 at 12:02 pm (11 years ago)
Thank you for posting in so much detail! I’ve been wanting to try out a barre class since i moved to LA two years ago, but not knowing anyone in LA has kept me from venturing too far out of my comfort zone- including exercise classes. Hearing all the wonderful things about the class and the instructors will finally motivated me to step outside of my LA comfort zone!
MeaghanJuly 9, 2012 at 12:18 pm (11 years ago)
I would LOVE to try a class because I’m so sick of the same ol’ boring cardio and need something new to ramp up my fitness routine.
MaryJuly 9, 2012 at 6:32 pm (11 years ago)
I’d love to win the Physique 57 Giveaway because I love to change up my workout routine. I’ve been playing soccer my whole life, but would love to challenge my body in a different way. AND I’ve never taken a barre class but am soooo intrigued by it.
RisaJuly 10, 2012 at 8:37 am (11 years ago)
I’ve been really wanting to try a cardio barre-like class and this sounds fabulous! I’m pretty consistent on cardio, but definitely need some strengthening and toning!
Kimberly CurryJuly 10, 2012 at 5:57 pm (11 years ago)
I want to win because I just got this book at the library! It seems like a unique workout experience and I would love to go to a real life class and experience it in person 🙂
Pamela D.July 10, 2012 at 6:10 pm (11 years ago)
I’d like to win a free class because I like free stuff!! 🙂
AngelaJuly 10, 2012 at 11:40 pm (11 years ago)
I recently found your blog through pinterest and have been working towards adopting a healthier life style like you have. I too was overweight growing up and now at my heaviest 235lbs I am giving your rabbit food a try! I’d love to win the physique 57 giveaway, I too live in the Los Angeles area and I’d love to check out the Beverly Hills location! Please Pick Me!!! 🙂
