The Method

Body Conceptions is designed to create the coveted lean and sculpted body of a dancer, but you don’t have to be a dancer to do it! Throughout each class, every part of your body is targeted – from your arms and abs to your thighs, glutes and heart. Both the cardio and body-sculpting components of the method use integrated movements that involve multiple muscles and require engagement of and connection to your core. Every class will test your limits – but the current, exciting music combined with the energy and joy infused into the workout will make you almost forget you are working so hard!

We currently offer private and group fitness sessions in New York City, the Hamptons, and New Jersey. We would love to help you achieve your fitness goals, become part of a wonderful community, and feel stronger, leaner, and more capable in your daily life.

The Founder & Creator

As a former professional dancer, Mahri Relin danced in New York City and around the world for over 12 years. It was through dancing and performing that Mahri discovered she also had a passion for fitness and maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

Now a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Corrective Exercise Specialist, AFPA Pre and Postnatal Exercise Specialist, and fitness enthusiast, Mahri spent her early years in the fitness industry working as a trainer for the Tracy Anderson Studio. She went on to become the Creative Director for FlyBarre at Flywheel Sports as it grew internationally. After several years working with these fitness moguls, Mahri knew she wanted to branch out and try the ideas that she had refined and perfected through her own research, her work with clients, and her connection with the emerging city fitness scene.

It Works!

In a city full of Type A exercisers, Mahri knew that it was important to provide a workout that really works. By combining the sculpting and cardio training she developed throughout her career with moves that come from her favorite dance classes and fitness principles, she created a method that truly changes your physique.

The Body Conceptions method has proven to produce intense results over and over – creating a dancer’s physique while also improving athletic ability, core strength and self-awareness. Clients feel stronger, happier and more capable in their day-to-day lives because of the method. They experience easier pregnancies and quicker recovery, and they feel more confident. They also make some great life-long friends in class, and they feel like part of a true community.

We are passionate about working with women and men to create the best results possible while truly having fun and making fitness a regular part of a healthy lifestyle. Whether you are getting married, are having or have just had a baby, or just want to find something fun that will finally help you get the body you’ve always wanted, this is the method for you!
