A high-end boutique gym called ModelFIT is headed for Bowery, and the name isn't just an aspiration. Founder and trainer Justin Gelband is one of the masterminds responsible for the bods of Victoria's Secret models like Karlie Kloss, Candice Swanepoel, and Erin Heatherton, and Kate Upton's first Sports Illustrated cover. (Yea, this one.)
Classes are currently offered at Tribeca Health & Fitness, but Crain's writes that ModelFIT just signed a seven-year lease at 212 Bowery. Classes are a pricey $45 a pop, but given outcomes, probably worth it.
