If you walk amid bFit Studio’s high ceilings and sprung floor within the Fox Chapel Yacht Club, you would not see solo exercisers walking aimlessly among complicated machines without knowing how to properly use them or motivate themselves.

That’s because the staff of certified instructors focus all their attention on classes, in which clients of all fitness levels make use of equipment such as TRX straps, BOSU balls, and Kangoo boots.
