The secret is in the blend.. No, no, no. I’m not talking about my favorite smoothie - but better! I'm talking about our newest workout trend here at the studio. There are a lot of myths and misunderstandings around cardio vs strength training. Usually, people who want to slim down think to practice ONLY cardio, and then people who want to gain muscle choose to ONLY strength train. Well, both scenarios are actually FALSE! In fact, a healthy combination of strength and cardio training will allow your body to perform at its best, letting the two systems, cardio & strength, complement each other rather than compete - as found in our Blended classes!

I firmly believe in our Blended classes because it allows for an efficient and productive workout. And, by efficient, I really mean demanding, quality workouts that will give your fitness levels a push. And, if you can kill two birds with one stone, by all means do it!

No matter where you are in your fitness journey or what your schedule allows, you can take advantage of any of our classes:

  • Early riser? Well so are we! There are lots of options both studios! At River, you can Blend with your ‘Tight End’ one day, your ‘Upper Body’ the next, and then hit up Willow with a Toning or Ride class all in the same week.

  • Busy Go Mommy looking for some YOU time? Good news! Our childcare team will take care of your little ones while you Blend at River, Ride at Willow or hop into one of our Outdoor Mommy Mixers offered at both studios. (Go Mommy classes are offered in the 9a & 10a hours.) P.S. You don’t have to be a Mom or bring a child to attend these classes!

  • Free for Lunch? Escape for an hour and join our 45-minute express classes that will help break up your day and give you the energy your afternoon coffee can’t compete with!

As is the case with many aspects of fitness, balance is the key to mixing both cardio and strength training into your routine. Here at WiO, two modes are perfectly “blended” so you can get the most out of every class!
