    A ballerina and a banker walk into a barre…


    In 2005, Jennifer Vaughan Maanavi and Tanya Becker joined forces to create Physique 57, the world’s premiere barre fitness program. Driven by their passion for empowering women’s bodies and minds, they committed to making their innovative workout accessible to women worldwide.


    Physique 57 introduced New Yorkers to a fresh approach to group fitness: classes designed with women’s bodies in mind. Physique 57 devotees soon discovered astonishing results with the magic formula of ballet-inspired movement, cardio and strength training. Now with 13 studios around the world, a cutting-edge On-Demand program, and a chic athleisure collection, the Physique 57 empire grows stronger every day.


    Physique 57 challenges its clientele to achieve the best versions of themselves. Recognized around the world for forging communities of strong and powerful women and delivering unparalleled results, Physique 57 offers a fitness experience that touches lives far beyond the barre.



    Using your own bodyweight as resistance, the Physique 57 workout targets the muscles in your arms, thighs, seat and abs to the point of fatigue then stretches them for relief. Our effective process, called Interval Overload, includes muscle-defining arm exercises, intense thigh and seat sequences, waist-chiseling ab moves, and fluid stretches. It’s not easy but that’s exactly why it works.


    The Physique 57 method meets you where you are — and equips you with tools to see progress from the very first workout. Are you new to a regular fitness routine or cross-training for competitive results? Looking to lose weight or generally “tone up”? Regardless, each of our classes is structured to maximize every minute and move with our signature (scientifically tested) choreography and expert instructors. From smile-inducing music to challenging moves and variations, our workouts never (ever) end in plateaus. It doesn’t get easier — you just get better.


    You’ll love (seeing) the changes in your body — and we mean every part of your body. From head to toe (and every muscle group in between) our method will strengthen and tone your muscles like nothing you’ve tried before.
    Hitting the barre at Physique 57 means pushing your limits and opening yourself up to change. But trust us when we tell you – it’s worth it. Our clients tell us all the time that they’ve never experienced workouts – or seen results – like ours. (And we’ll note here that they’re smiling when they do it!)


    Our full body barre workouts blend dance-inspired cardio, strength training exercises, and stretches that are designed to burn fat and transform your entire your body. We offer a wide variety of classes for all fitness levels. Workouts That Work For Every Body.


    Physique Signature Classes
    Signature I
    A great place to start if you’re new to the barre! Learn the Physique 57 barre basics and how our unique formula combining strength training, cardio, and stretching rapidly transforms your body. Using weights, a playground ball, and your own body weight as resistance, you will create lean sculpted muscle, rev up your metabolic rate, and feel a sense of accomplishment after each rep.
    Been to the barre a few times? You will be provided opportunities to tailor the class to your own fitness level. Want more cardio? Want to focus a little more on a specific trouble zone? We’ll give you that and more. We recommend clients take at least four Physique Beginner classes before taking Signature level.

    Amped Up!
    Are you a barre fly? You’re familiar with our technique. Now it’s time to take your workout (and all that hard work) to a whole new level. From cardio-infused sequences to hardcore ab sprints, your endurance and metabolic rate will definitely get a boost with this class. Designed for clients who are familiar with our technique and positions, Amped Up! is a challenging step up from our Physique Beginner and Signature. (Like all of our classes, it’s intense – but totally worth it!)


    In the heart of both Jumeirah and Umm Suqeim, you will find the perfect setting to energize your body and your mind. Our beautiful and welcoming spaces at City Walk and Al Thanya Mall include two large exercise studios, full-service locker rooms with digital lockers, complimentary towel service and the popular Physique Boutique.
