'Love Rehab' workouts

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Welcome to love rehab!

"Why would you hurt yourself even more? You've already been hurt," says Jo Piazza, a journalist and author. "Working out gives you the same endorphins that you feel when you're in a happy relationship. We want women to get out there and see a breakup as a new start instead of a dead end."

Piazza wrote the book "Love Rehab" and now she's created a love boot camp to help you detox from your ex.

"We do a lot of punching, a lot of kicking a lot of things for women to get their aggression and their anger out here, so they can go back out into the dating scene and project this aura of calm, Zen," she says.

The class plays empowering breakup songs and uses fitness chairs and overhead bungee system to sweat away the pain of a breakup.

"I had a lot of aggression inside and just pulling on the bungees and getting that aggression out really helped," Sadie Gillis says. She adds that these classes at ChaiseFitness have saved her since she broke up with her beau two months ago. She says the workouts are paying off.

"I did see my ex," Sadie says. "He did a double take when he saw me and I'm sure that he's pretty bummed that we broke up."

Love Rehab workouts are free.

They are also held at spin studio Flywheel and Barry's Bootcamp in the city.

    Deep beneath the hustle and bustle of Tribeca lies a modern-day oasis brimming with old world charm: Aire Ancient Baths, my new favorite city escape. The breathtaking spa is illuminated by hundreds of candles and smells of invigorating eucalyptus. For around $80 you can bathe in the tranquil blue pools for 90 minutes and find the temperature that's right for you.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.
