“Found out about Lab5Fitness’s opening through a Popsugar deal. My first class was great! First time on a reformer – during a Purist Pilates class. The small group (we were 3) was one huge benefit to being a first timer. The instructor explained about the reformer and was great at correcting form where needed and being clear with her instructions. Great workout too! Everyone can perform at their own fitness level. It worked muscles that I otherwise hardly ever feel. It requires some concentration, which is great…since it occupies your mind and makes the exercises relaxing. Time went by so fast! I will certainly be back.”
“I’m feeling slightly academic today. Even though this is all about body training, my mind has gotten some great benefits out of the fantastic workouts I’ve done here. Please, sit down and enjoy the list!
Número Uno: LAB5Fitness is a beautiful space. A nice, clean, minimal and sleek (but not pretentious) place is perfection when it comes to working out. It’s obvious it was carefully designed to help people get into a perfect workout groove.
I also want to give LAB5 a kind shout out for helping on making that corner of Broadway a more walkable and enjoyable one. It’s very nice to see that area coming to life.
Número Dos: Trainers were patient, warm and very kind to this newbie. It wasn’t a “gotta keep up with the super athletes” experience. It is a learning process involving being kind to your body as you’re getting your butt kicked with the workouts.
Número Tres: I don’t have enough words to describe how fantastic is to hang from the ceiling using the TRX bands. While you feel like flying, you’re rediscovering your body, inch by inch. It was a pretty unique experience I’m looking forward to revisit.
Número Cuatro. The Reformer is a very interesting piece of equipment. It’s feels like a computer for the body. You are tested, you are challenged and you also have fun. My favorite part of the session was “jumping” on it while on my back, looking up to a relaxing and intensely blue sky, there for you to see through a set of skylights. My feelings drifted from exhilaration to happiness, and finally parked on bliss.
Conclusión: This is working out like you haven’t experienced before. You’ll need to drink a lot of water and have some fish oil, because that trip throughout your body will awaken it in ways you haven’t feel before. Two days after my first workout, I felt slightly sore (the good kind) but my body was also stronger and performing like a champion.
I coming back for more.”
