Hi, I'm Zac Mathias, an interior designer, content creator, and the founder of The Classic Chic – the go-to destination for individuals who are unapologetically themselves and constantly in search of the chicest must-haves. This month, I'm excited to share my favorite fitness instructors at Westport's most stylish fitness studios because, yes, chic and fitness belong in the same sentence. Join me as I highlight these exceptional instructors. You can also follow along with all my favorite workouts on Instagram @zac.mathias.
Shana - Yoga45
Yoga45 is a welcoming community for everyone, whether you're an experienced yogi or taking your first class. Shana's practice is rooted in Ashtanga, and it's all about having fun and getting your body moving for 45 minutes while enjoying the best music.
Jess - Pure Barre
If you've ever tried barre, you know that those small movements may seem easy at first but are quite challenging! Jess teaches at Pure Barre Westport on Wednesdays and Sundays and will leave you feeling sore the next day. I love to double up with a classic class followed by an align class on Wednesdays.
Lauren - ClubSweat
Lauren is the choreographer for ClubSweat, so you can expect a challenging class when you walk into the studio. I particularly enjoy her Sweat45 class, which is 45 minutes on the cross trainer, somewhat similar to spin but with a modern twist. She also offers a Sculpt class, focusing on strength training.
Andrea - [solidcore]
[solidcore] classes are held on a megaformer, which I love because it offers a more intense and challenging workout compared to a traditional reformer. Andrea is a senior master coach, and her classes are truly amazing – you'll never work your core harder than in her class! I also appreciate the energy she brings to the class; it makes the workout genuinely enjoyable.
Rhodie - Equinox
Yes, that Rhodie! Westport's original spin instructor, Rhodie, who co-founded JoyRide, is now back in the saddle at Equinox. The JoyRide community has always been special in Westport, a true testament to what Rhodie and Amy built. You can now find that same community at Equinox in Southport, and Rhodie's classes are as fantastic as ever.
