I like the variety within the workout itself - it makes the hour go by quickly.
Allison is a great motivator and she keeps the class fun.
I like looking up at the board as an incentive to get into the next zone and to watch my splat points rack up.
I have worked out at about 4 different OTF studios, and Garwood is my favorite.
Other studios keep the workout space quite dark; Garwood has great natural lighting.
The music/volume are optimal. Trainers are positive and encouraging and give clear instructions. Classes are generally easy to schedule. Parking is easy.
As wish-list items:
Later week-day classes
More form/instruction from coaches (generally when doing the floor work).
Excellent trainers, convenient weekday times for NYC commuters, good variety with workouts.
Noticing a visible difference with cleanliness which is great. & would recommend figuring out how to ET members into the studio a few minutes earlier so we can stretch ahead of class. Many times it feels rushed to get started. With the treadmill assignments there shouldn't be an issue with letting members in early, particularly with the 5:30 am class when no one is waiing for the studio to be cleaned.
Love the structure & challenge of the workouts. Since I'm driven by numbers and results, I enjoy being able to monitor that after each one. friendly welcoming staff. instrrutors are attentive to form & motivating. Music is great too & facility is clean.
