Dance New Amsterdam

Fitness @ DNA is designed for the 9-5er, always on the go and always wishing for a little more time. Who can take an hour off to go to the gym? Not you. So DNA is offering 20- and 40-minute classes designed to tone, stretch, and shape your body but not take up your entire day.

If you need to get to work by 9:00am, we’ve got 40-minute morning classes designed to give you a burning workout without making you sweat away your makeup. If you’d prefer to run out at lunch, our 20-minute afternoon classes aim to transform you into a healthier version of yourself, even if you don’t have time to change out of your business suit.

If you aren’t convinced yet, one class can be cheaper than your morning latte. At just for a 20-minute class and 0 for a 40-minute class, we are easy on both your body and wallet.

So stop and give us 20.
