While any way you move your body is better than no movement at all, it can be a difficult feat to find a workout — or workout program — that works specifically for you and your fitness goals.
Personally, I’ve been there, and while I’m not looking to crash diet or lose a certain number of pounds, I feel at ease when (1) there’s consistency in my routine, (2) the workout isn’t too intense and (3) I feel good both during and after movin’ and groovin’.
Though I’ve been using the P.volve platform for less than a month (so far), it has already changed the way I work out for the better. It makes me excited to workout, excited to tone my body and excited to improve.
Not to mention, P.volve is the fitness platform Jennifer Aniston swears by, in large part because she has previously felt “burnt out” and “broke” her body with intense cardio (in fact, the actress says she’s in “better shape than [she] was in her twenties,” per a Page Six feature.
Impressively, P.volve offers a holistic, individualized approach that differs from competing workout plans.
As a former dancer and lover of anything cardio, HIIT and pilates, I’ve always been focused on mobility-focused workouts and ones where I would tone, maybe do some light weight training and see results over time. For my preference, I’ve never been into nonstop 40-minute workouts where I would end up exhausted, fatigued and sore the next day.
P.volve is an online fitness program — which also has an in-person studio in NYC — that combines low-impact, functional movement and specially designed fitness equipment to effectively tone, sculpt and strengthen.
“Unlike so much of our competition, we really prioritize the body’s function alongside the physical results you might see,” Rachel Katzman, founder at P.volve, told the New York Post. “Our workout method is designed with the female body in mind, and that means we can truly support them at all stages of their life – because women’s bodies are constantly changing and in need of different things.”
If you’re looking for a more lifted booty, more sculpted arms and more defined abs, P.volve is the picture-perfect platform for you. How it works? Once on the platform, you can select plans or take classes independently.
P.volve is on a mission to change the conversation around fitness. For so long, women have been taught a pain equals gain mentality, and that looking good comes at the expense of feeling good. I started P.volve to help teach women at all stages of their life that this isn’t the case, and that they can get the physical results they’ve dreamed of and feel good too.
The fitness classes go hand in hand with the equipment, and P.volve offers several à la carte options and bundles. I’ve been using the Essentials Kit and adore all of what it comes with.
The Essentials Kit is a full-body bundle that contains P.volve’s patented P.ball and P.band, along with 1.5-pound ankle weights, a heavy ankle band and gliders. This kit includes a three-month membership as well.
P.volve offers a monthly or annual membership, with the annual pricing being the best option which comes out to $8 monthly. Its curated equipment kits come with a three-month digital membership as well.
“All memberships include access to our robust on demand library, live classes powered via Zoom and a free consultation with a trainer,” Katzman adds. “We also have memberships at our studios (currently open in NYC, LA and Chicago, with a lot more cities coming in the next year!) where members have unlimited hybrid access to the P.volve Method.” This includes unlimited classes at the studio level, access to the brand’s on demand library and live virtual classes and first access for studio events and launches.
For a program that’ll redefine the way you work out, I believe this is a fair price. It’s like having a personal trainer with you every step of the way, as every online workout is guided and uses the equipment in a way that will work best for you.
I could go on for hours about the benefits of P.volve, but boiled down the fitness platform to a few main points.
The bread and butter of what makes the brand unique is its versatile fitness class options: strength & sculpt, cardio burn, progressive weight training and recover & stretch:
Additionally, P.volve offers a category of programs called Movement Therapy, which are tailored to physiology, age and goals. They include the brand’s women’s health-focused workouts and target specific needs — like back strengthening and hip release — to feel good.
Unique to P.volve, the brand has a woman-leaning focus which is super important to me. Since I’ve never had a personal trainer, something I’ve always been curious about is how to work out effectively during my time of the month (TMI, but it’s a question we all inevitably have at some point).
What’s more, P.volve has developed programs to support all these stages from the pelvic floor, endometriosis, menstrual cycle, fertility treatment, pre- and post-natal and menopause. “Additionally, we have programs that can help with certain pain points someone may experience, like back, hip, ankle, wrist pain and more,” she adds.
Sure, you can pick up a pair of dumbbells and resistance bands on Amazon but P.volve’s equipment — specifically, its Essentials Kit — is unmatched when paired with the brand’s mission-minded classes.
“Like our methodology, our equipment is also purposefully created to give women the results they’ve always been after,” Katzman notes. “We have three pieces of patented equipment, our P.ball, P.band and P.3 Trainer, that are unlike anything that you’ve ever seen in the market. They are all designed with such precision to activate muscles (both the major ones and the smaller), supporting muscles that other pieces of equipment and workouts don’t engage.”
My first experience with P.volve to steer me into my membership was a 45-minute personal training session with Maeve McEwen at P.volve. Not only were all the movements strength and mobility-focused but she corrected my form during our lower-body workout and explained to me how workouts focusing on the human form are beneficial for the array of P.volve offerings.
While I didn’t have my Essentials Kit at the time of this session, I noticed a huge difference when my kit came in the mail and I started taking online fitness classes. All of the pieces are made of great quality and I felt them toning and strengthening my body throughout the class!
As for my favorite classes, I thoroughly have been enjoying the Standing Full Body Sculpt, Full Body Mobility and Hip & Lower Back Opener (the latter being especially beneficial to my ‘dancer’s hip’ which, if not taken into account, can lead to injury. The fact that P.volve has classes catered to specific biological and personal needs is extraordinary.
I’m also a big fan of P.volve’s Progressive Weight Training catalog. I’ve been taking both the upper and lower body workouts regularly as it adds a bit more elevation to day-to-day sculpting.
Overall, P.volve is my current favorite fitness platform of choice. For transparency, I have tried others, but none is more intentional and effective than P.volve. Right now, you can snag the Essentials Kit and a three-month membership to get you locked and loaded for your new workout routine.
