Like an '80s power ballad, exercise is unwelcome only when performed at two in the morning by a leotard-clad neighbor with open drapes. Relish timely pleasures with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a five-class punch card for TRX fitness classes at The Multisport Advantage (a $50 value).
Multisport Advantage's certified triathlon trainers guide athletes to self-satisfying performance through the use of a custom-built TRX frame. Since the frame's straps and harnesses are designed to support the weight of eight people at a time, 45-minute classes accommodate small groups, allowing for individual attention as trainees balance, stretch, push, and hone spoon-bending mind powers. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings from 7:45 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., TRX Body Blast sessions build core strength and endurance with nonstop workouts set to energetic music. Monday and Wednesday evenings, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:15 p.m., the center hosts TRX Bootcamp classes, which entreat movers and shakers with a mix of TRX training and cardio drills as they employ equipment such as medicine and Bosu balls and sweat through timed sets at an individual pace. Both workouts tone and exercise all fitness levels, delivering athletic prowess through supportive group bonding and the muscular benefits of low-risk trapeze.
The MultiSport Advantage
As a citizen of “Track Town USA,” Jeff West has vast experience with all varieties of endurance athletics. An accomplished rower and rowing coach, Jeff balances triathlon training and ultra-distance running with volunteer work as a firefighter and paramedic. At The MultiSport Advantage, Jeff leads a team of coaches as they work with and challenge athletes. Up to eight cyclists hook into the CompuTrainer system, riding against each other in classes that help max out aerobic capacity and refine the economy of one’s biking motion. The center’s custom-made TRX apparatus can also accommodate eight athletes, helping them build dynamic strength by blending body-weight exercises with plyometrics and BOSU balls. The center’s metabolic testing identifies the baseline and limits of an athlete’s capacity, and helps trainers craft a plan for the triathlon students. Triathletes can also rent wetsuits that will keep them dry during the traditional Gatorade and kombucha bath they receive after crossing the finish line.
