Such an individualized approach is not exclusive to his A-list clientele, however. Starting today, Gelband—who took a hiatus from the New York fitness scene after parting ways with ModelFIT, the celebrity-centric studio he confounded in 2014—is back with his own eponymous space in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan. There, he offers his signature hands-on approach in both one-on-one and group sessions. What’s more, dance-cardio and Pilates classes, taught by Gelband-approved instructors, are also on offer. “I really like to look at how people feel when they’re here, so I always start with a warm-up and watch people move in [differing] planes of motion—anterior, posterior, and laterally and rotation ally,” Gelband explains of his beloved step-and-stretch series. After gauging his students’ flexibility, strength, and skill level, he then devises a 60-minute plan of action, which is often tweaked throughout class to best suit individuals’ needs. “I literally have no idea what we’re doing until the class warms up,” he adds with a laugh.
