A few years ago, a new workout studio entered the New York fitness scene, amassing attention through its unique method of a high-intensity trampoline-based workout with low impact on the body. The Ness, founded by Colette Dong and Aly Giampolo, quickly became New Yorkers’ new go-to workout nestled in the incredibly chic SoHo neighborhood—and there were no signs of slowing down. In fact, during the pandemic, The Ness’s international digital fitness platform business grew by 75%, further proving that the method had become a leading method in the fitness industry. The Ness has also captured the hearts of notable celebrities such as Eva Longoria, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kelly Ripa, and Sophia Bush.
Today, Dong and Giampolo remain committed to evolving the company through new programming, challenges, and innovative ways to use the trampoline to keep their community engaged and forging synergistic partnerships and pop-ups, like their residency at Topping Rose House in the Hamptons. Dong and Giampolo undoubtedly created a one-of-a-kind studio, ultimately building a community that shares the same passion for wellness. Thus, it is no real surprise that their former careers were actually in the wellness world yet completely different than The Ness.
