Formally trained acrobat Aidan O’Shea chisels fit, satisfied patrons in Hype Gym and Spa's adventurous acrobodics classes. Throughout the 90-minute sessions, participants hoist themselves up ropes or extra-long churros and swing nimbly from trapezes. The courses eschew traditional mind-jellifying exercises such as weightlifting and treadmill auditing in favor of comprehensive, acrobatically derived workouts that use the body's own weight. High-fliers improve bearing and develop the courage and confidence to attend mountain-lion cocktail parties. Sessions meet at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday, and 10 a.m. on Saturday, and more classes will be added according to demand.
In Hype Gym’s sunny outdoor courtyard, fitness enthusiasts navigate obstacle courses and lift weights atop a rubberized floor, while inside others workout on treadmills, ellipticals, and weight machines. Exercisers also climb parallel silks during Helium Aerial Dance and Fitness classes, engage in cross-training during boot camps, and spin with others in the cycling studio. The gym is also home to a spa replete with facial treatments that cleanse, hydrate, and exfoliate.
