New 305 Fitness Studio Opens In Manhattan
You may remember I was introduced to 305 Fitness at the TomTom Spark media event in October. I was so intrigued that I took another way harder class in the Village about a month later. I fell in love but honestly the location was a bit out of the way for me. Then the best news came a week later that they would be opening up a location that was a 15 minute walk from my job! Yaaaaaaaaaaaas.
I was invited to attend the media day last Thursday and it was off the chain. Picture this: a beautiful studio with tall ceilings and incredible artwork everywhere. The chandeliers are made of smart water bottles. There is a LIVE DJ pumping your favorite hip hop from the speakers and the staff is super warm and inviting.
There were two super gorgeous people dancing on chairs and giving me so much life!
There was even a spray painting section for the media and of course I had to get me some of that!
I invited my coworker and friend Nicole to come with me because we randomly discovered our mutual love for 305 Fitness one day while chatting so she was the perfect company.
We had two instructors Jess and Deaton. I can’t even begin to tell you how much style and twerkability these two have. Crazy high energy but at the same time super encouraging and interactive with the class. My first class was with Jess so I already was aware of her badassery but this dude Deaton–I’m sooooo here for him too!
Each class features high intensity cardio dancing but there is also a portion of class that involves weights for an oh so sweet burn and sprints which consists of body weight exercises like squat jumps, high knees and quick feet. It’s a full well rounded workout!
When class finally concluded and our heart rates slowed we went into a great stretch of our muscles and just an overall feeling of *proud* that we made it through!
The 305 Fitness Midtown studio is just gorgeous. It’s much bigger than the village location with two studios. The artwork is fantastic, I couldn’t get enough. The vibe is that place is simply electric. There is a live DJ for every class and the lights are like legit club lights–so much much fun and a nice distraction from the work you are putting in!!
If you live in or visit NYC and you love dance fitness you NEED to visit 305 Fitness! You will be so happy you did!
