Hurts So Good: Pulse’s Boutique Body Workout is Unapologetically Challenging…and Extraordinary

In case you haven’t eyed the calendar of late, we’re T-minus two and a half weeks to Memorial Day weekend, the official kick off to summer; ergo, bathing suit season. And while the mere words strike fear in the hearts of many, there’s people like Jacki Schriber-Lane (seen here, and ps: mother of three), who’s cutting edge Boutique Body workout at Pulse, a private bootcamp and class studio in Newport. Boutique Body was inspired by the method practiced at famed Physique 57 studio in New York City while utilizing ballet-inspired technique and the body-sculpting and strengthening Bar Method. Think: Kelly Ripa (a Physique 57 regular).

“The concept behind Boutique Body is to use your body to get yourself in shape more than using weights, traditional machines and cardio exercises,” says Jacki. “The intensity is amazing and the feeling of becoming narrower and thinner through the hips and thighs through all of the plies, leg raises, ball squeezes and more is unparalleled by other workouts.”

Done barefoot with little to no impact, the workout challenges your body to find more of your own muscle to work because you’re not flinging a weight around or getting too comfortable in your running stride, says Jacki. “Boutique Body forces you to find your muscle contractions in every move.

Jacki’s tips to be on your way to your Second Beach best?

1. Pick a small enough window of time to be really focused on clean eating and a strict exercise routine, but one that is a big enough time frame to see results. Jacki suggests 4-6 weeks.

2. Avoid measuring your progress on a scale. “During the first 3-4 weeks of working out, most of my clients don’t lose a single pound, but their inches may start to move, If you can see something moving, you’ll be inspired to keep going… Measure around your thighs, around your chest (most women lose size there first) and waist (most men lose there first) and re-measure in the exact same spots 4-6 weeks later. 

Pulse, owned by Jacki and Kathy Martin, is located at 1 Casino Terrace #8 in Newport. Visit for bootcamp, class, trainer and contact information.
