With an encyclopedic class schedule spanning Cirque du Soleil–inspired aerial programs and a ballroom-dance fitness series, Fullbody Fitness Club stretches, strengthens, and tones bodies through innovative workouts lauded by WPXI. Elements of salsa and samba meld with pounding soundtracks during LaBlast classes designed by Louis Van Amstel, letting students smash calories like a pinch hitter in an orchard of piñatas. In aerial sessions, Patvan silk hammocks suspend exercisers as they climb, dangle, and weave themselves into capacious duffle bags. The gravity-flouting courses stretch and strengthen bodies with low-impact motions. Turbo Kick courses draw on self-defense fundamentals and a driving tempo, and the adrenaline-soaked moves of Zumba forged happy cardio systems.
Certified instructors lead gym-goers through 30- to 75-minute sessions in the facility, which is equipped with gleaming new equipment, and padded flooring shields feet from impact and toe-tickling spelunkers.
Though Fullbody Fitness Clubs sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Fullbody Fitness Club
Though she's been expanding viewers' knowledge and awareness as a news anchor for WPXI Channel 11 for close to 20 years, Darieth Chisolm works to enlighten members of her community in a different way off-camera. Chisolm is an avid runner, a certified group fitness instructor, and the owner of Fullbody Fitness Club, where she encourages exercisers to think outside the plyometric box. Her classes and equipment are anything but conventional—guests experience the sensation of being airborne during Jukari Fit to Fly aerial acrobatics classes—the creation of Reebok and the Cirque du Soleil entertainment group. Patrons hang upside down in fabric hammocks during aerial yoga and whirl around 45mm poles during pole-dance fitness sessions. The rooms are outfitted with thick, padded flooring to protect joints and acoustically muffle the squeals of unbridled, endorphin-driven glee.
To lead students safely through her fitness wonderland, Chisolm has gathered a team of certified instructors to teach proper technique and guide people toward their goals. Her studio has been featured in numerous media, including a 2011 story on her own WPXI and the designation of Best Place to Soar to New Heights from Pittsburgh Magazine in 2012. Chisolm also offers patrons several ways to give back to their favorite nonprofit organizations.
