It’s survival of the fittest this summer as Bravo Media premieres its new docu-series “Work Out New York” on Tuesday, August 18 at 10p.m ET/PT. The series goes inside the sexy and exclusive world of elite fitness training in New York City. Following the lives of a group of the city's hottest trainers, Lindsey Clayton, Joe Lazo, Layla Luciano, Lena Marti, Noah Neiman, Courtney Paul and Holly Rilinger, the series sheds light on a group of high-end personal trainers, where competition for landing top clientele tests even the deepest of friendships. From rivalries to romance, these friends and colleagues know they can't be afraid to break a sweat to make their dreams of success come true. With the landscape of the fitness world changing at lightning speed, the trainers can't miss a beat or they may find themselves trying to catch up. The battle for who is on top never ends and if they can’t keep their professional jealousies, disagreements and romances in check, the group’s intensity level could go sky high.
“Work Out New York” is produced by Kate Little, Claire Poyser and Derek McLean of Lime Pictures, Stephen Lambert, Eli Holzman and Jacob Cohen-Holmes of All3 Media America along with Executive Producers Tess Gamboa, John Platt, Matt Weber and Omid Kahangi.

Currently an elite trainer at Barry’s Bootcamp, Lindsey’s classes are structured to challenge her clients and help them break through walls both physically and mentally.
Joe Lazo: For the past four years, Joe has worked at some of New York City’s top fitness clubs, including New York’s David Barton Gym and Complete Body, and has made a point of educating himself in myriad disciplines in order to develop the workout his clients have come to depend on. Joe currently holds five certifications, in ACE, NCCPT, CrossFit Level 1, CrossFit Movement & Mobility and CrossFit Kettlebell Trainer. Prior to delving into the fitness world, he modeled for A-list brands including Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, Y-3 and DSquared.
