Erin Andrews and Tanya Becker Physique 57

Erin Andrews is a devotee to Physique 57’s barre classes to keep her body super toned.

“Erin’s schedule is obviously crazy, so whenever she’s in New York or L.A. she tries to make it to one of our studios, and she’s a huge fan of our video on demand platform, which she uses on the road when she’s traveling,” says founder and instructor Tanya Becker. “She’s a huge fan of the method.”

The Dancing with the Stars host actually prefers Physique’s group classes to one-on-one sessions.

“She likes the sense of camaraderie and the energy of the group,” says Becker. “That really fires her up.”

A typical Physique 57 class works the entire body.

“We go through arms, your thighs and your glutes, and we’re engaging your core about 80 percent of the class, so it’s ab work throughout,” says Becker. “Then we finish on the floor with specific targeted exercises, and of course dessert – stretching at the end.”

Physique 57 bases its classes on the idea of “interval overload.”

“We work through every muscle group and we take it to the point of fatigue, which is how the muscles actually change,” explains Becker. “We do it in high intensity intervals, so we sprint, recover, sprint, recover.”

“It’s a dynamic, highly efficient, effective way of working out, which is why I think Erin Andrews and a lot of celebrities like to do it, because you see results quickly,” continues Becker. “The more intense you get, the quicker you’re going to see results. That’s just a scientific principle.”

And Andrews keeps her intensity up throughout the workout.

“She’s incredibly disciplined and committed,” says Becker. “When she’s in class, she is working out hard!”

While Andrews enjoys the full-body aspect of the class, there’s definitely a body part she specifically loves to tone.

“If you look at her body, it’s pretty apparent that it’s a total body workout, but nothing changed her body more than our glute work,” says Becker.
“She’s great with arms and abs, but she likes our glute work!”

To sculpt your booty, Becker recommends doing a clamshell move. To do this, lie on your side with knees bent. Lift your toes up, and then open and close your top leg.

“It’s a great move to strengthen the inner thigh and seat area,” says Becker. “It’s a basic position but it really works!”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
