Looking to get your butt kicked – in the best way possible? Head over to BFX Studio for a workout that can’t be beat. BFX Studio hosts a wide range of classes as well as personal and group training sessions. This Back Bay studio is state of the art and gorgeous; it has everything you could need before or after class in its large and spacious locker rooms equipped with showers.

I had the privilege of attending a Saturday morning 9am BFX Fusion class this month. This class is a mix of spinning and strength training. Studio Director, Rob Wood, led our early morning class – pushing us to our limits. We rotated between the bike and the floor three separate times. Each bike session consisted of different sprint intervals or hill intervals. The floor sessions used a mix of TRX suspensions and 30 and 15lb sandbags to work our arms, legs and core. Each floor session had three to four exercises where we did as many of each as possible in the given time slot.

Music blasting and lots of motivational yelling from Rob got us through class and 60 minutes later, drenched in sweat, my sister and I walked out of class ready to take on Saturday – maybe after a quick nap ; ) I would definitely recommend this class and studio to anyone! I am excited to get back to try more of their classes very soon.

Exploring New Studios: Boston Gets #CYCd

This past week I finally made it to the brand new Cyc Fitness Spin Studio in the Back Bay. This spinning brand began a couple years ago and is now starting to expand. Cyc Fitness is unique because it is a full body workout. Designed by Keoni Hudoba, an Under Armour sponsored athlete and trainer it is made to maximize your workout in the 45 minutes of class.

“Cyc offers an exhilarating, beat-based, 45 minute ride that activates the whole body, the whole time. Weights are incorporated into sectors inspired by more than 20 different sport movements such as boxing, volleyball and swimming.” -CycFitness

Let me just say you really do fall in love at first Cyc. This class is HIGH energy and so much fun. Master Trainer, Steph Dietz, taught the class with so much passion and enthusiasm. She mixed in a bit of boxing, swimming, and volleyball movements with weights throughout the class which really makes the 45 minutes fly by. Steph has a way of pushing you mentally and physically and when you reach the finish line you truly feel accomplished.
(and wanting to come back for more..)

Not only was I able to take a Cyc class that night but I also got a 30 minute preview of Kick It By Eliza’s signature workout!  The whole night was a BLAST. I am totally hooked with the high intensity and upbeat vibes of CycFitness and can’t wait to come back. As for Eliza, I can’t say enough great things about this girl and her passion around what she does. I am taking a full Kick It class next week and will do a blog recap; stay tuned!
