a member’s story

“Not going to lie, I was nervous. I hadn't worked out in quite a while, but the people and place made me feel so comfortable, so quickly.”

Smiling GTX class members

getting started

“People welcomed me, showed me how to get set up: you can start on mat or treadmill, and then it switches up. The workout was on the screen so if I got lost I could just look up. It went fast. I went back again and again!”

the main event

“Week-by-week, I started catching on to the moves, and then I started picking up heavier weights. We learned about heart rate zones, which makes your workout so much smarter. I actually began looking forward to these mornings.”

cooling down

“Stretching doesn’t mean done. There's a lot of team spirit, and it's fun to reflect on the effort we all brought. The coach always takes time to answer questions about making your workout go further, like the best time of day to load up on carbs.”

explore the science

With 12 weeks of progressive, daily-written programming, this guided class is designed so that you can work towards your goals and train every day, without the risk of injury. 
When you combine cardio and strength, aerobic and anaerobic pathways work together to create significant changes in body composition (in other words, body fat).
Not only is exercise a massive confidence booster, but you’ll notice improvements in overall mood and ability to manage stress, thanks to the natural hormone production that occurs. 
Heart rate zones tell us how hard your heart is working and what energy source you’re using, so you can understand exactly how much fat you’re burning. 
Exercise stimulates the production of Human Growth Hormone that, once released from the pituitary gland, tells the body to increase bone, muscle and tissue production, and targets body fat for hours after working out. 
Building relationships and being part of a community that is working towards the same goal encourages you to stay engaged for longer, enabling bigger and better results.
