A Chat with Brickhouse Cardio Club
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Brickhouse Cardio Club offers a variety of group fitness classes to help you achieve your fitness goals without the BIG gym scene. Whether you like to dance, tone and shape, or stretch, you are sure to find classes that suit your needs. Classes are not separated by levels of fitness, instead, each person chooses their own fitness level when attending the classes. "Your workout, your way." Join us for Zumba (Latin-inspired) and/or Westside Step (hip-hop) dance classes, Booty-Barre (dance-inspired, tones your smaller leg muscles and core), Les Mills Body Pump (tones/strengthens all major muscle groups with low weights & high repetition), Les Mills Body Vive (strengthens the muscles around your joints to help with "normal, everyday activities & strengthens with resistant bands), Core Craze (totally ab class), Vinyasa Flow Yoga (relax your mind & body while learning to breath and stretch your muscles).

Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?

The instructors at Brickhouse Cardio Club stay engaged with their class participants so that they can stay focused and in-tune to their needs. At Brickhouse Cardio Club, we pride ourselves on the friendly atmosphere that we have created & the smile on the faces after each class. We also run contest on occasions to give members a reason to get their workouts (for the week) in....having fun is what it's all about!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Brickhouse Cardio Club has opened the door to people, mostly women, who would not typically go to a large gym and workout because they are self-conscious about themselves. Women give so much of their time helping others, that they forget to take time out for themselves. Brickhouse Cardio Club provides them with a place, away from the everyday stresses of life, and allows them the time to relax, let loose, have fun with a friend (or two), and workout.
What do you love most about your job? As the owner of Brickhouse Cardio Club in Mechanicsville, the MOST rewarding part of my job is to see the self confidence grow in the participants after they have been attending classes on a regular basis. It's amazing to watch them shed their "Baggie" clothes or to hear them talk about how much they missed not being in class due to another event that they needed to attend. Theses women have begun to take ownership of their classes and even let us know when they will be missing and/or why. They hold themselves just as accountable for attending classes as the instructors do about teaching classes. It is truly and family-like atmosphere.
