UniquePhyZique’s limber league of licensed instructors leads intense, yet beginner-friendly classes aimed at coating effective fitness routines in a generous layer of fun. While the schedule is subject to change, classes are scheduled seven days a week. Selections include Latin-inspired Zumba classes, targeting the core, legs, glutes, and arms through a fun dance-fusion workout under a disco ball, as well as whole-body Tone & Sculpt, where athletic architects build lean bodies from the legs up using stability balls, 3- to 15-pound dumbbells, squats and lunges, and upper-body exercises for optimal fat burning. As its name so coyly suggests, the Amazing Butts n’ Guts class focuses on the body’s core, legs, and sitting spaces in intense 50-minute bouts, and new Turbo Kick sessions blend punches, kicks, and simple dance moves to help to burn calories and improve strength, coordination, and balance. Students should prepare for their first class by filling out a waiver and composing Dear John letters to their soon-to-be ill-fitting sweatpants.
The room is filled with people, all of who are moving to music that thrums through their bodies with palpable bass. At the DJ booth, colorful LED lights pulse in time with the beat, and tube lighting frames the stage and mirrored walls in a white glow. Blacklights bathe the room in bright violet tones, transforming the colors of everyone’s clothing into electric neon.
Suddenly a voice cuts in on top of the music.
“All right, everyone! Let's shake it!”
Though UniquePhyZique looks light a nightclub, it’s actually a fitness studio. Founders John and Julie White recently expanded and remodeled their space, updating it to reflect their mission to help clients fall in love with fitness by keeping it fun. In the high-energy space, students gather for sessions of Zumba, a Latin-inspired, dance-fitness workout and Turbo Kick, a fusion of kickboxing, and sports drills. The schedule also includes PiYo, an inventive blend of pilates and strength training, and Tone & Sculpt, a class in which students use stability balls and neoprene-coated free weights to sculpt legs, upper bodies, and abdominals. And soon, the schedule will also be expanding, as the team is currently working on certifications in Beachbody's P90X and Insanity.
Not only is John and Julie’s space fun, it’s also very user-friendly. Members check in simply by scanning their keycards, and can help themselves to water and towels before and after classes. Additionally, a dozen membership types allow clients to choose anything from low-commitment punch cards to unlimited 6- or 12-month agreements with automatic monthly payments and a secret member handshake
