In the chill, urban environs of iSweat Studios, exercisers circuit through three studios contained in one setting, with cycling in one area, toning and strength training in another, and sweaty boot-camp workouts in a third. The cycling room, affectionately called iCycle after the owner's pet icicle, stocks a fleet of 25 Keiser M3 bikes, each with a monitor tracking heart rate, speed, and calories burned. Thirty- to ninety-minute cardio classes fuel bikers with live DJ music or funky dance beats, while intense cycle tone-sessions work abs and upper bodies while lower halves remain planted on bike seats. In the iSweat studio, groups tone and strength train in intense Pilates and yoga classes, including core conditioning, hot yoga, and yoga with weights. Featuring the variety and intensity of boot-camp workouts without the spontaneous shoe-shining drills, the iTrain studio firms bodies and blasts calories with ropes, a TRX suspension system, boxing, and bouncy plyometrics.
A far cry from fitness warehouses that contain bleakly lit treadmills as far as the eye can spy, iSweat Studios cultivates an urban edginess, with wall art by graffiti artist Kobie Solomon, live DJs, and hip-hop music. A schedule bench-presses a load of around 30 classes a week, and the variety of classes encourages guests to mix and match their way to fitness.
At iSweat Studios, now open in a new location, the sights and sounds of a night on the town power fitness training. The industrial workout space teems with graffiti murals, which summon sweat with sultry verbs such as “train” and “cycle.” Here, upbeat instructors lead varied workouts that battle boredom and fortify each major muscle group. Up to 14 students can pedal Keiser M3 stationary bikes that monitor speed, heart rate, and distance traveled. Brimming with kettlebells, battling ropes, and TRX suspension straps, the studio hosts functional training workouts, which help exercisers build enough strength to arm wrestle the Statue of Liberty.
