Fitness Files: The Fhitting Room Review

I recently went to a class at The Fhitting Room, a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) boutique fitness studio in NYC. Learn what to expect in my The Fhitting Room Review.

The Workout: There are two instructors in every class at The Fhitting Room, meaning you get lots of hands on instruction…and someone watching to make sure you don’t take a “break.” Each fifty minute class incorporates five components: functional movements, strength training, high intensity intervals, total body focus, and highly varied exercises. When I was there we broke into three groups and switched off between ergs, ski ergs, and the TRX. We also did high knees, burpees, kettle bells, weights, squats, box jumps, and lots of pushups. Oh and we didn’t just do each set once. We did them all three or four times.


What to Wear and Bring: Wear what you’d normally wear to a gym class. Right now my favorite brands are Lululemon and Old Navy. Bring lots of water because it’s quite the workout. You don’t need to bring a lock or toiletries. They have lockers with keypads and fully-stocked bathrooms with Modern Apothecary products, a hair and makeup area, and everything you need to get ready.


What to Expect: The class was hard. Really hard. But it’s energetic, they play great music, there is a friendly atmosphere, and the instructors will motivate you to work your hardest. I left feeling accomplished and excited to go back for another class!

The Fhitting Room team was kind enough to let me take a class for free but this is an honest The Fhitting Room review. All images are from Gilt City. Featured image via Bandier!

  2. I’m a little cautious, but it looks fun! The class design is defenitely unique, so if I was around to try it I definitely would! It seems like it would be challenging and rewarding!

    I am always geared up to try new workout techniques. This looks like it will have me moving slow the next day but so worth it!

    The whole atmosphere seems so energizing- sounds like you had a really intense workout! Good music and instructors always help, though. I’m so embarrassed to do HIIT in public – I sweat so much.

    I can deal with hard classes as long as they play good music and keep my moral up! Sounds fun!
