Fhitting Room

A friend of mine who has been working out at Fhitting room for years told me to try it and she was right: I love it! For me, I like when a workout is challenging but still doable. And that was one of the reasons why I loved this studio. It was a tough class, but not that class that you get frustrated for not being able to complete the sets. Even though the class was at a fast pace, everybody was able to respect their own limits, without having to rush and lifting the weight appropriate to them. I also loved how there are two instructors instead of one per class, so there is not a moment that you feel lost or helpless. I am very concerned about not hurting myself, and for me is way more important to get the right form than the number of reps.

Level of difficulty: ★★★★✩
Cleanness of studio and amenities: ★★★★★
Hospitality: ★★★★★✩

Good for you if you like to: High-intensity class combining strength workout and cardio. And also clarity in what exercises you are doing and assistance to get the right form/movement (they have 2 trainers in each class).

How I felt after the class: energized, motivated, accomplished, and strong.

Locations: Upper West Side, Upper East Side, and Flatiron.

Trainers I had: Dennis Lozada and Riley O'Donnell

Price: $38 (when you buy your first class you get the second one free). Fhitting room is also part of Classpass which you can try 2 weeks free with this link or use this link for 20% off on the Classpass and Blink membership.
