Change is a-foot at Refine! Wednesday marks the opening of our Upper West Side studio and with it, the introduction of our new custom-designed equipment. One of the founding principles of Refine is that we will always update our methods if we find a better way. To that end, we have developed these new pieces in order to make Refine both more effective and more fun. While we love barefoot training as a tool to strengthen your lower leg, our new equipment requires a sole to use comfortably, so we are making the switch to sneakers! We recommend checking out the many minimalist training shoes on the market for a lightweight sneaker that still allows your foot freedom to move and work.
All classes on the Upper West will be held in sneakers as of opening. At Union Square and Upper East Side, classes will switch to sneakers on October 12th. You will notice a few class cancellations on October 11th and 12th, as we prepare the USQ and UES for the switch.
We appreciate your patience and we are excited to share our new creations!
