I like that it keeps me motivated. I have been to a number of OTFs around the country and I have to say Niskayuna is by far the best. I know OTFs are you suppose to all be the same but they aren't (for a number of reasons). Niskayuna is the most upbeat! Their/Your trainers are the best I have worked with in that they are good at balancing between the tread group and the floor group, keeping both motivated and on track. They are also good at making sure the floor group is using proper form. The workouts can get kind of repetitive in my opinion. I feel like whenever i go floor exercises are the same just in different orders for majority of the classes - which could be my fault since i only go 2 times a week maybe 3. Either way i still love it here!
Everyone is very encouraging. I was unsure about going the first time. I was concerned if I could do the workout (I have cardiovascular issues) and look foolish in the process. I was pleasantly surprised. I love the fact that their fitness program meets you where you are. There is a wide variety of people in class battling their own demons. I felt like I fit in on the first visit. I now look forward to going and working out, which is a first for me.
All the instructors do a great job with making everyone feel welcomed and comfortable and they all do an excellent job leading class. I like the fact that I don't have to decide what workout I should do. The classes are already planned out so that I don't have to make this decision. So, anyone considering going and are a little tentative..don't be. This is the place for you.
I like that it's different everyday! No need to think the coaches are great and tell you what to do. If you need help they are right there to teach you how to do the exercise properly!
Taylor and Michelle are great!!!
Love the variety! Taylor is great! As are Michelle, Justin and Lydia. It's been nice to see Mike the last couple of times that I've been there. It was really, really fun to be in class when all the trainers were working out: Mellisa, Matt, Michelle with Taylor leading the way!
