If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you. That's 6ix Cycle's motto, and we are so totally into it. We've now taken classes from owner Julie Harrish and one of their main men, Adam Deunk, and holy yellow penguins did these guys live there motto. The studio is clean, fresh and just as approachable for men as it is for women and they've got you covered for everything you need. Worth a trip, homies. worth a trip.
The Sweat Lab (or TSL) is an absolutely awesome hub for lean, mean muscle hotties. Reasonably priced, with a diverse schedule full of killer classes, and a spacious ski-lodge feel, this studio is a must visit for the Calgary fitness fam.
We've been to Barre Body Studio twice now to try different classes, two locations, and get our butts whipped into shape, literally. These barre classes are low-impact, aerobic and will get your heart rate up by incorporating elements of ballet, free weights and resistance-based equipment. The result is a more toned, leaner physique with a lifted and absolutely fantastic posterier.
Leaner - longer - stronger. Barreworks motto and speaking deeply to our soul. As Toronto's first ballet-based barre studio 5 years ago, these guys have dominated the barre space and made it affordable, fun and you'll see results. If you haven't tried barre before but always wanted to, this is where you should start.
Moksha Yoga West is one of the OG hot yoga studios in YEG and it's philosophy is completely in-line with other Moksha studios worldwide, creating a space where a diverse group of people can practice together without judgment. You’ll find a v interesting mixture of serious practice and a jovial community, and the sweaty yoga class was challenging, fun, and accessible for anyone. Totes worth a visit for your next downdog.
The Underground Dance Centre is literally an underground dance centre, located below street level and busting at the seams with talent, energy and some of the funnest and most impressive choreography that we've ever seen.
The class schedule is packed, the prices reasonable, and they have some of our absolute FAV yoga instructors. We're so into this little gem in the east end, and we guarantee you'll leave with an energised glow that's entirely deserving of the name.
This fulsome wellness centre is big on their values, as they strive to provide a safe space for inquiry, practice, community and healing and we totally got that sense during our time.
These classes are designed to stimulate the physical demands of surfing without the waves. Meant to torch body fat, build lean muscle and get a ripped core, this class will kick your ass.
One of the draws to this studio is their cutting edge equipment. Their Stages Cycling (SC3) bikes will e-mail immediately after class to show your power, total calories burned, RPM and miles so you can continually challenge yourself and track your progress. Woot.
