I recently had the opportunity to work out both popular South Florida Fit Shop locations; the new Fit Shop Ft. Lauderdale location in Flagler Village, and the North Miami Beach location, just off the hustle and a bustle of Biscayne Blvd on Dixie Highway.
The Fit Shop offers four different types of high intensity fitness classes: Supercharge, Tune-Up, Turbo, and Burnout each which incorporate kickboxing, performance training, and boot camp aspects.
The philosophy that I identified most with is Fit Shop’s focus on mental alignment and balance. Positive self-talk is all the rage here and is evident at the beginning of class with positive intention setting.
I am all about the holistic approach to fitness. As a Registered Dietitian, I encourage positive self-talk and I emphasize balance in the maintenance of healthy eating patterns with fitness regimens.
I had the pleasure of taking the Fit Shop FTL’s “Tune-Up” class at 9:00am Tuesday morning (which was that and much more!), and the Thursday NBM “Supercharge” 6:15pm class.
The “Tune-Up” class was a great way to get my Tuesday morning started – also love the fresh smell of lavender which filled the air (nice touch guys). Coach Adriane Abraham killed us with quick, fun and intense rounds, characterized with the use of kettlebells, rowers, stationary bikes and TRX bands. Geared as a boot camp style class, the “Tune-Up” class is just the right fit for overall fitness performance and toning!
Thursday’s “Supercharge” class was a whole other story. A combo between the “Tune-Up” and “Burnout,” incorporating kickboxing, the “Supercharge” class is power and endurance focused! I have to admit, this was my very first kickboxing experience. It had always been on my list of things to try and I am so glad I tried it at Fit Shop first… it was AWESOME! Seriously so much fun… I want MORE!
Speaking with Coach Adriane after class, you can feel her passion exuding as she speaks about what has brought her to this point in her career. She loves what she has created and is striving to bring fitness, motivation and balance to everyone who steps foot on the tarp of both Fit Shop locations.
