The classes at FitClass Studio—which are led by certified trainers—are always an hour, but are never the same. The workouts are designed to mix cardio, strength training, and flexibility with effective techniques from popular modern workouts such as boot camp, kickboxing, plyometrics, Pilates, and yoga. FitClass Studio also has nutritionists that can design diet programs to help clients achieve their results.
Several of Yoga by Sarah's instructors credit their practice with helping them overcome significant hurdles: debilitating asthma and anxiety, menopausal changes, and—in the case of founder Sarah Giovannone—an eating disorder. They hope to return the favor by turning a wide variety of people on to yoga's benefits in an accessible studio. They welcome those of all socioeconomic statuses with a work-exchange program, in which clients help to clean the studio in exchange for unlimited access to the schedule.
The schedule varies from gentle, meditative styles—such as hatha yoga and warm yin restorative—to more physically challenging classes—including Vinyasa flow and yoga ballet barre. And beyond yoga, their workshops introduce guests to such exercises as chakra meditation, childbirth prep, aerial yoga, and teaching yoga to seniors.
At Pilates Emporium, the classes cater to a diverse clientele—therapeutic yoga sessions, for example, help students combat chronic soreness and aches, and Osteo-Pilates sessions hinge on bone-strengthening work. STOTT-certified instructors helm the sessions, which also can focus on traditional mat or reformer work; they keep classes small to allow for a level of customization. To complement the group workouts, the facility hosts personal training and an infrared sauna, whose warmth helps detox physiques.
