Format/Equipment

  • Fitness clothes + sneakers.

  • 50 mins.

  • At the start of your first class, you’ll be instructed to find your PR (or Personal Record). This is done following the prompts on the treadmill screen. You’ll enter in a few data points, run for a minute at a speed the treadmill determines, and then you’ll tell the treadmill screen how the run felt. From there, the treadmill determines your PR number (for instance, mine was a 9.5).

  • A PR is the fastest speed you can maintain for one minute. Whether or not you actually hit your PR during class (dependent on the class routine that day), all of the instructor-led speeds are based on your PR. This means you’ll sometimes run at 2 points below your PR (for me, 7.5) or 3 points below your PR (for me, 6.5), etc.

  • Every class is different, but an example class is: (i) 5 min warm up, (ii) 2 mins at three points under your PR while increasing inclines by one point every 30 secs, (iii) 1 min recovery, (iv) 1min at two points under your PR while increasing inclines by one point every 15 secs, (v) 2 min recovery, (vi) repeat the 2 min/1 min recovery/1 min/1 min recovery segment three more times, but at increasingly higher inclines and then repeat the same segment four more times but at faster speeds and lower inclines (two points under your PR and one point under your PR, respectively), and (vii) ab work and cool down.
