"The Physique 57 Solution" Book Event

Physique 57 is my obsession. It changed my body and instilled in me a love for exercise. Something that no other workout had done prior to that. I have followed its meteoric rise from its humble origins as a single studio with a handful of teachers to its current status with multiple studios along the coasts and over 40 teachers on their roster. The DVDs were the first step in spreading the benefits of this method beyond NYC and LA, and were soon followed-up by the sold-out retreats. Now, Physique 57 has launched its first book, The Physique 57 Solution: The Groundbreaking 2-Week Plan for a Lean, Beautiful Body.

The book is broken up into 4 parts: The Method - which describes what Physique 57 is and what differentiates it from other workouts; The Moves - which provides detailed instructions of all the exercises with pictures; The Workout - two complete whole body workouts with different exercise sequences, (complete with a suggested music playlist- nice touch!); The Menu - a 2-week meal plan with many additional, easy-to-make, healthy recipes.

I went its book-signing event at Norma Kamali's Wellness Cafe earlier this week.

The lovely Tanya Becker, the creator of Physique 57, and co-author of the book was signing copies of the book. Currently pregnant with twins, she was looking positively radiant and was a walking testament to the effectiveness of this method!

I chatted with Natasha, Physique's social media guru.

Physique's Director of Training, Alicia Weihl was at hand to give P57 demonstrations. Norma Kamali's Wellness Cafe provided healthy snacks: popcorn with olive oil and sea salt, along with refreshing green tea.

Not being able to make it to the earlier book launch party, I was glad I could attend this. For those in NYC, there is another book signing event at Lululemon Lincoln Square on Wednesday February 8th, from 8-9pm.
