Fitness should be a BLAST!

BLAST is an interval-based group fitness class that uses a variety of functional movements an interval styles to get you working hard. This 45 minute class is a super efficient and effective way to improve your overall fitness and health.

#BlastingInProgress

If you want to get to sweat hard and get fit in a fun and fast-paced group class format than Blast is for you. Blast is an Ironstone original – we created this class to make functional fitness accessible and challenging no matter your current experience level or fitness. We use a format call Focused Intensity Interval Training (FIIT) to attack three different aspects of your fitness. On Power days you’ll move as fast as you (safely) can with high power movements and frequent rest. This will feel like a classic HIIT workout and is meant to tax you anaerobically and push you hard. On Strength days you’ll do intervals of reps and rounds with weighted movements to build strength and muscular endurance. Your heart rate will be elevated but it will be your muscles that slow you down. Endurance days will be long, slow grinds. You’ll spend long periods under tension before your rest, moving at a steady pace throughout. This is meant to be an aerobic effort, so after some rest, you’ll do it all again. Each Interval format will be structured to help you get the most out of your 45 minute fitness experience.

Work Hard and have a BLAST doing it!

The BLAST program is all about making the most efficient use of your time. We will use functional full body movements with weight, bodyweight movements, and cardio machines in as many combinations as we can dream up. However, what we won’t use is the barbell. Rather than invest a lot of time into learning highly technical barbell skills and progressing from light to heavier loads, we skip the barbell in this program and jump right into fitness with both feet. Because it is less technically demanding, this is great class for all fitness levels. You control your loading (weight) and intensity (how fast you move). We control the intervals and movements. The net result: a BLAST of fitness for everyone.

We currently offer 10 BLAST classes per week  in our main gym space. M/T/W/F Mornings at 7:15 AM; M/W/F late afternoon at 4 PM; T/Th at 515 PM; and Sun at 845 AM.
