I love that new fitness studios are popping up everywhere. It’s always good to switch up your routine, plus I love taking classes and not just teaching them. Classes can get pricey so even if you aren’t willing to commit to package, I highly recommend checking out a new studio/class on your next trip. Treat yourself!
There are a handful of studios around Baltimore that I haven’t had the opportunity to check out yet. I put up a post on my IG last week and got a ton of responses – so here you go .. below is a list of the different studios/classes you guys recommended!
Orange Theory. This heart rate based interval training workout was by far the most popular/recommended by my followers. Classes are one hour and designed to maintain a target heart rate zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy. They recently opened an OTF in Harbor East so I’m definitely going to check it out (plus your first class is FREE)!
[Solidcore]. I’ve been to [Solidcore] a handful of times now and it’s an amazing workout. It’s honestly unlike any other workout that I’ve done before. I would describe it as mindfully intense. Unlike other workouts the goal here is to go slow. Movements in the full body workout are based on planks, squats and lunges. Expect to feel this one the next day (or two). The grand opening for their Baltimore location was this weekend – it’s located in Harbor Point. If you go, checkout Ceremony Coffee post workout for Avocado Toast. You won’t regret it!
9 Round. This 30 minute kickboxing circuit workout got some love too. They have a location in Canton and you can show up whenever because their are no class times.
Inline. Specifically, Katie’s booty barre. I don’t know what booty barre is but it sounds amazing and I love trying other barre classes because they’re all so different.
Knockout Fitness. A couple of people said they wanted to check this one out, but I haven’t heard much about it. Keep you posted. Located in Federal Hill.
Reflex. From what I understand, Reflex offers boot camp style training (which I’m all about). They are located in Locust Point so I can even walk there.
Movement Lab. Not as popular, but those who’ve tried Movement Lab said they love it. I’m thinking Arial Yoga followed by brunch at R House.
This goes without saying, but you definitely need to check out the spin and barre classes at REV if you haven’t yet. The spin classes are some of the hardest ones I’ve taken and Barre Cardio (soon to be Barre Sweat) is the intense barre workout you’ve been looking for. Yes, you will sweat. We are also launching an Abs & Arms class which is going to be a great compliment for spinners, so keep an eye out for that.
