I am super excited to share todays review with you. I recently had the opportunity to check out Shape House here in New York City. If you aren’t familiar with Shape House this is a widely popular celebrity fan favorite “urban sweat lodge” located in New York City and Los Angeles.
What caught my attention about Shape House was the fact that it promises you all the benefits of an exercise class burning 800 to 1600 calories without actually exercising. Not to mention the numerous studies that have been published on detoxifying health benefits of sweating. I mean so many cultures use sweat lodges for years and years for both physical and spiritual reasons. So to me it seemed like a no-brainer. Who wouldn’t want to sweat away toxins and pounds all while relaxing in a private room with all the Netflix fixings to your desire. Not to mention the numerous A- list celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Taylor shilling and yes the Kardashians are all huge fans of the health and beauty benefits. Beauty benefit? yes so you know I had to get all the details for you guys.
I arrived at the shape house located at 34 W 17th Street here in NYC. I brought along my good friend and assistant Colleen to enjoy the experience with me. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by the amazing staff who was so accommodating and helpful The Shape House is dark and relaxing lit up by red lighting. They will provide you with clothes that you sweat in (cotton is the perferred material) as well as socks. They then will escort you to your sweat room where you will be wrapped in a Infared heated blanket that heats up to 160 degrees, you’re given headphones and your own private flatscreen TV with all the Netflix & Hulu you can need to relax and watch while you sweat all your toxins out and shed some unwanted pounds. Not to mention this is some much needed uninterrupted me time that helps me physically and mentally detox.
You are also provided with a call button should you need any assistance during your sweating or a refill on your water which they keep at your bed side at all times so that you are able to keep yourself fully hydrated throughout the process. I should mention that they do recommend that you have a small meal prior to sweating and make sure that you keep yourself hydrated as well prior to coming in for your sweat session.
I really did enjoy the sweat session it was everything that I could’ve asked for and one of my favorite parts during the session is their “Beauty Towels” towards the end when you really feel like oh my god is this over because you do start to feel really hot you can feel the sweat dripping down everywhere. They have the perfect timing because it just when you feel like you can’t take anymore they come in with these beauty towels which are very cold relaxing washclothes that they place on your four head and what’s even better is you can smell the lavender It is drenched in. It’s so soothing and refreshing and they place it at the perfect time so that you’re able to finish out your session and feel great.
After the session is over they bring you into a relaxing lounge area where you are provided with water, tea of your choice from turmeric to mint and fresh orange slices to relax and replenish yourself. I never felt so amazing my clothes were fully saturated from sweat but inside I felt revived and refreshed and not to mention my skin was glowing it felt so soft and mentally I felt like I was on cloud nine. I could also see the effects the sweat had on my body in the following days as my stamina was better my skin continued to glow I just felt all around amazing not to mention I did sweat off a few pounds yass.
Now you can visit the Shape House as a nonmember or you can join and you receive some really amazing savings which will allow you to sweat more often at a better rate.
I knew from the moment that we left that I was going to join as a member. The staff was so amazing and I would love to thank Hadley the Shape House coordinator (yes thats right we share the same name ) for inviting me in to try out this life-changing experience. I will definitely be joining and cannot wait to sweat on a regular basis.

How much more amazing does it get then that! It looks like things are going to be heating up this Month in New York City and I’m telling you from my experience you don’t want to be left out. So grab your mom or your best girlfriend and make sure you check out the shape house this is going to be an experience you are going to love let alone release all those toxins that tend to build up and my favorite part will leave you a glowing from the inside out.
