Format/Equipment

  • Fitness clothes + sneakers.

  • 60 min class.

  • Seven mins of yoga to start class.

  • 50 mins of 20-40 station intervals (depending on size of class).

  • Each group of two starts at the station number assigned to them (you’re assigned your number at random by the front desk, but you can request to be w a friend).

  • Stay at each station for two mins, sometimes doing one exercise the entire time or switching between two.

  • Stations are cardio, strength, or a mix. Think spinning, TRX moves, tricep dips, or kettlebell squats.

  • Three mins of cooldown.

Hard AF?!

  • Very challenging, but doable bc you never do one move for longer than two mins.

  • By the time that you get to the last few stations, your body is exhausted.

  • Exercises are not complicated, all levels can excel.

  • The instructors use hand signals to notify you what moves to do and for how long, so that takes getting used to (it’s not complicated).

  • Class flies by bc you’re moving around so much.

  • There is a live DJ, so that makes everything better.
