Giving up on your New Year’s resolution to get in shape so soon? Maybe you just don’t have the right motivation. Why not give the new Apogee Pilates & Wellness Centers (140 Mamaroneck Ave, White Plains, 914-644-8884; 170 Harris Rd, Bedford Hills, 914-244-1606) a whirl? As the developer of this fitness regime, Joseph Pilates, proclaims: “In ten lessons you’ll feel the difference, in twenty lessons you’ll see the difference, and in thirty lessons you’ll have a whole new body!” It can’t hurt to try.
Think boutique gym, with a serene 8,500- square-foot Pilates studio, a full complement of group mat and equipment classes (as well as one-on-one training), a café with yummy snacks and pick-me-ups, immaculate locker rooms. They even offer nutrition services, in case you’ve fallen off the wagon on another resolution.
