#2 Dumbbells

Dumbbells are a great tool for strength training.Working out with dumbbells helps to balance strength since they provide equal load to both sides of the body.




#3 Ankle Weights

Although relatively light and non-intimidating at first glance—don't underestimate the serious burn that adding even a couple of extra pounds to your lower-body moves can provide; adding resistance to any movement help your muscles grow.




#4 Steppers

Want to bump up your cardio? This is a great tool to use for various HIIT, Plyo and strength exercises! It will add an extra range of motions which means that your body will need more energy to perform the movements.


#5 Resistance Bands

Resistance bands can be used to make strength-training exercise more challenging. You can store resistance bands anywhere and give any quick work out double the push! In some instances, these resistance bands can be used as a substitution for dumbbells, exercises like bicep curls and shoulder presses are some examples.






#5 Jump Rope


Such a simple way to incorporate more cardio into your routine! It is a great warm up exercise, you can do 5 - 10 mins of jump rope before your Peachbody or any other workout from home!





#7 Yoga Mat


This is the most important piece of equipment you're going to have! A yoga mat will be there for all of your workouts, therefore, it is important that you choose one a quality mat that you can travel and feel comfortable in.



#8 Foam Roller


Do you ever feel any muscular pain or aches from exercising or in general? Recovery is just as important as the workout itself. Foam rolling helps release tension in your muscles, and therefore helps lengthen your muscles so you have a better range of movement. If you're interested in learning how to use this tool, let us know you want us to make a special class for this!

#9 Gym Bag


A travel gym bag that keep your yoga mat, water bottle, booty bands and other equipment all in one place and can travel with you to your next workout sessions. Just grab and go!

Our "New Normal"

Facility Preparations

  • Bigger and more open space in the front area for before and after class

  • Disinfection and Sanitizing of the gym and front area

  • Removal of non essential high touch equipment including lockers

  • Signage has been placed on the floor throughout the gym to remind members and coaches of how to maintain a minimum of 6’ social distancing

  • Touchless Foaming dispenser has been purchased and spread out throughout the gym for easy sanitization - both soap and hand sanitizer

  • Air purifying system has been purchased to improve air quality, fight germs, kill airborne bacteria and viruses.

Changes in classes & memberships

  • Changes in class size - We are limiting our classes to 4 people per class so that we can have a big open personal space allowing for 6' social distancing and provide you with a great small group training experience.

  • Changes in class duration - In addition to changing the class size, classes will be 30mins long. This will help us accommodate our members during peak hours as we will be working at less than 50% capacity.

  • Changes in class set up - We have re-designed our future classes to accomodate for social distancing. You'll use the same equipment throuhgout class to ensure safety. The workouts will have shorter rest periods and your instructor will guide you throughout the entire routine, minimizing the time we would otherwise spend going over the exercises.

  • Lower membership rates - We will be offering lower membership rates to encourage more frequent workouts. You can find our new membership rates under the "Memberships" tab.
