Check out the schedule for class times and descriptions.
The individual attention of personal training and the camaraderie of team workouts converge at The Edge, a 3,000-square-foot kettlebell gym inside Personally Fit’s workout studio. Here, certified personal trainers lead three types of functional fitness classes that use tools such as weighted sleds and suspension-training harnesses to increase strength, burn calories, and gear up for Santa’s annual reindeer tryouts. During the studio’s signature kettlebell classes, students sculpt limbs and cores using cast-iron weights shaped like small cannonballs. To help to prevent injuries and reap each motion’s benefits, a Russian Kettlebell–certified instructor stresses proper form throughout the workout. The earth’s gravitational pull powers TRX classes, which help up to 10 students to master body-weight exercises using suspension-training straps. Since each movement can be tailored to a variety of skill sets, these workouts suit the needs of new exercisers and seasoned athletes alike. Built around a circuit of cardio and strength stations, boot camps boost fitness levels with sandbags and battling ropes, not piggyback rides from Richard Simmons.
