Fit Test: SLT


Strengthening, lengthening and toning is always a goal, but I’ve never been on a reformer machine.  Leave it to my BFF to encourage me not only to try it, but to test it out during a class at SLT, Manhattan’s elite megaformer studio.


As someone who works out five days per week, I thought I had a chance at conquering the reformer or at least being good at it, but let me tell you, this class owned me.  There were several times I actually laid belly flopped on the machine, because I just couldn’t.  It’s not that I didn’t have the stamina, but I wasn’t strong enough.  I looked around to see incredibly fit women (including my BFF) dominating.  Would I do it again?  Absolutely.  I’d try!

Here’s the breakdown by numbers:


minutes of class


minutes I spent laying on the machine incapable 


the total amount of calories you could burn per class


people, class max 


the amount of times I cursed


dollars for a single class


sweat factor out of 10
