HOTWORX is a new franchised fitness studio in Pembroke Pines that uses the technology of an infrared sauna to give you more workout in less time.
Infrared saunas have been demonstrated to give results like reducing stress, increasing calorie burn, providing pain relief, detoxify, increasing flexibility, lowering blood pressure, improving circulation, and helping with weight loss.
There are a total of 10 sauna rooms within HOTWORX, all providing a different type of workout. There are HIIT workouts, like Cycle and Blast, which run every 15 minutes and give you a cardio-intensive workout on either a stationary bike or an elliptical-type machine.
There are also isometric workouts such as yoga, Pilates, buns, core, and bands. Isometric workouts run every 45 minutes, giving you 30 minutes to workout and 15 minutes to stretch. If any equipment is needed for a class, such as resistance bands or Pilates rings, those are provided. However, mats and towels must be brought in by members.
Workouts are short because thanks to the heat and infrared energy, training is accelerated. Not only will your muscles warm up faster, but your heart rate raises quicker, giving you an effective workout in much less time. Cross-training is highly encouraged to prevent boredom, diversify your workout program, and accelerate progress.
All classes are led by a streaming, virtual instructor, motivating you and talking you through the workout.
"HOTWORX truly is a place where people of all fitness levels can challenge themselves to be their best self," said Jessica Williamson, franchisee. "With more workouts in less time and around the clock access, there really are no excuses and members love that."
HOTWORX Pembroke Pines is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so you are able to "earn the burn" whenever is convenient for you. Each studio room allows up to three members to workout at a time, and sessions can be booked via the HOTWORX app. Also within the app, members can unlock rewards, complete challenges, and even compete with other members if they wish.
HOTWORX Pembroke Pines also has a functional exercise area that is not within a sauna with weights, bands, ropes, and more for use before or after an infrared workout. There is a silent trainer on the screen here as well, demonstrating some different workouts you could do.
Memberships start at just $59 per month for unlimited access to one location.
