Challenge your body and mind while reaching new heights. Interval training combines treadmills, water rowers, and the weight floor to provide a total-body workout. By combining resistance training and cardiovascular movement, these workouts are designed to push your limits, promote calorie burning, and help you stay in shape.

Our fitness studio offers interval training classes in 60-minute sessions while also utilizing infrared therapy. The panels of our studio emanate infrared radiation. Infrared light provides many health and fitness benefits, such as increased circulation, muscle recovery, pain relief, anti-aging, and detoxification. During your visit you will feel energized during your workout, allowing you to push yourself harder.  The infrared will penetrate your body to warm your muscles, allowing you to have less chance for injury, recover quicker and detox at a greater level!  Because of infrared, you will have less muscle soreness and be able to achieve your results faster!


Our workouts are designed for all levels of fitness and are guided by our elite, certified trainers. With their guidance and encouragement, you will feel comfortable and challenged in every session. Each instructor is a trained and experienced expert in their field. All of our classes are group-oriented, however; you’ll be able to go at your own pace, whether that’s a beginner or elite athlete, our trainers can tailor our workouts to your personal fitness level!  

At our fitness studio, we offer more than just interval training.  Try our Private Full-Spectrum Infrared Saunas:  Recover and relax in our personal infrared saunas. Infrared light alleviates stress, improves circulation, and speeds up recovery time from intense physical activity. Each 45-minute sauna session will give you full control of the temperature, chromotherapy lights, and sound in your private sauna room. By the time you’re done, you’ll be ready to take on the rest of your day.
