In the past, I was intimidated by small studios. I was extremely self conscious about my level of fitness not being high enough to keep up in a small class.. It’s so easy to get lost amongst a large crowded class.
All fears went out the window once I got ELEVATED!
Every single staff member of Elevate is friendly. They get to know you and remember you. Don’t be self conscious. Everyone is there for self improvement. You get tons of personal attention in these classes unlike large chain gyms. Instructors come around and help you with your form or give you modifications should you need it. Don’t be intimidated if it appears someone is doing “better” than you. Everyone is at a different level and no one is there to judge you. Elevate is a welcoming and encouraging environment.
There are different classes but I suggest you try them ALL. Why? Because they’re fun. They make you sweat, they make you hurt, they make you SMILE and most importantly, they make you LOOK AND FEEL GOOD.
Fusion classes are my favorite. They are a mix of yoga, pilates, barre, and resistance training. It is quite possibly one of the best full body workouts I have ever done (more so than TRX!)
Elevate is extremely CLEAN. Just bring yourself, a towel (if you forget there are some there) a positive attitude and a smile! No need to lug around a yoga mat all day, those are provided as well.
Fellas, do not be put off by the ladies. These workouts are not “just for chicks” Try a few classes and see how much you can challenge yourself, I dare you.
I have missed Elevate SO MUCH since I’m rarely around the 1st location. Congrats on the 2nd location and welcome you all to Hayes Valley with an open heart and open arms!”
