New SPiit classes added to schedule

This week's launch of our new class addition, SPiit, has been a huge success! The first few classes sold out fast, so we've added more sessions to the schedule. You can try this new class at the following times:

  • Tuesdays: 9am with Lindsey (includes free childcare), 5:15pm with Janie
  • Wednesdays: 5:30am with Janie, 7pm with Brittany

Make sure to bring water and a towel to class - you'll definitely be getting your sweat on! We recommend clean, indoor sneakers for SPiit.

New merchandise available!

For the month of October, we've got a new shirt available - the "We Dance As One" shirt! This shirt is $35 and a portion of every sale will be donated to breast cancer research. Once they're gone, they're gone, so make sure to get yours today! 

Coming soon...

There's a chill in the air, and that means one thing to #poisenation - it's almost time for the SP sweatpants to make their return! We'll be taking orders very soon for these fan favorites, so keep an eye on your inbox for an email with details on how to place your order! 

Introducing SPiit!

Have you heard the buzz around Studio Poise about our newest class addition? SPiit makes its debut tomorrow and we are so excited for PoiseNation to give it a try! Wondering what you're in for? 

SPiit takes the tried and true Poise Method and integrates HIIT principles - High Intensity Interval Training. This method involves short, intense bursts of activity, followed by a less intense recovery interval. The result? Thanks to the technique's ability to get your heart rate going, you'll see increased fat burning in shorter amounts of time - and you'll keep that burn going even after you've left the studio. The so-called "afterburn" experienced with HIIT classes means your body continues to work through your recovery - for as long as 24 hours after the class! 

Translation? If you're crunched for time, SPiit is your best bet - it delivers serious impact in less time! 

SPiit follows the traditional Poise cycle. You'll work through abs, legs, planks & push ups, glutes and arms -- no body part left behind. The goal of this type of interval training is to burn fat without reducing muscle mass, so we'll be using heavier weights for some exercises - 5, 8, and 10 pound dumbbell options will be available. 

Janie Soehl of Mind Body Soehl Fitness worked with Danielle to develop this new addition to our schedule, and she'll be teaching her first classes this week! You can try SPiit on Tuesdays at 5:15pm and Wednesdays at 5:30am with Janie. You can also take the class with Erica on Thursdays at 7pm, and watch for more additions with the rest of our fabulous intructress team in the coming weeks!
