The classes, gyms and personal trainers to keep you Manhattan fit

Courtney Paul
West Village/Chelsea
Don't let Courtney Paul's million-watt smile deceive you. His workouts are “wicked.” You may recognize him as one of the lead cast members from Bravo TV's hit show, “Work Out New York.” Along with stellar results, clients note that with Paul you'll get someone who truly cares about helping you get to the next level. And if his Instagram account is any indication, you may also gets some giggles to go along with those gains. In addition to personal training, Paul offers group workouts at Liftonic in the Meatpacking District.

Heidi Jones
Upper East Side
When iconic fashion designers, entertainment CEOs and record industry execs want to get in shape they call Heidi Jones. “It's not just about the exercise,” says one client. “She shows you how to be strong, grow, take care of yourself.” While the whole city itself is her “office,” Jones can often be found on the UES training clients and also hosting her Squad Wod small group class at studios like Crank and Ice. Jones will meet you where you are, literally and metaphorically, and offers clients “365-degree love and support.” Says Jones: “Our sessions don't end when the timer reaches 60 minutes.”

Jennifer Giamo
Upper West Side
When it comes to Jennifer Giamo you really have no excuse. She will literally show up at your apartment door, your favorite park and probably your favorite subway stop. Giamo is the founder of Trainers in Transit and as the name implies, she and her team come to you. She also offers nutrition coaching and has developed Fitness Unleashed, a dog-friendly workout class that takes place in Central Park with 50 percent of the proceeds going to Animal Lighthouse Rescue.
