A new, celebrity-approved workout studio is coming to Long Island City next week.
SLT, which stands for “Strengthen-Lengthen-Tone” is coming to the fast-growing neighborhood on July 16, at 42-15 Crescent St. The location is the 22nd studio overall, with locations in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.
A spokesperson for the studio said that acclaimed athleisure designer, Zara Terez, has designed commissioned wallpaper specifically for the LIC location.
Founder and CEO Amanda Freeman started SLT in 2011 in order to combine all the things she was looking for in a workout: results-oriented — stylized as “reSuLTs” on the website — challenging, efficient, effective and fun. The workout is described as a hybrid of cardio, strength training and Pilates.
For 50 minutes, participants use a Megaformer machine, which has been described as a “Pilates reformer on steroids,” to complete a high-intensity, low-impact workout. Classes at SLT consist of slower movements, fast transitions and constant core-engagement.
The studio offers classes based on individual fitness levels, ranging from beginner to more advanced options.
According to SLT, the workout has transformed the bodies of celebrities like Sofia Vergara, James Franco, Alicia Keys, Emmy Rossum and Vanessa Hudgens.
SLT Long Island City is centrally located by Queens Plaza, and can be accessed by the N, Q or 7 trains.
Those interested in taking classes can book one on the website at sltnyc.com/studio/long-island-city/#class. A single class goes for about $36, but there are options to purchase class packages and monthly unlimited passes. For more information, call 718-361-5200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
