It is a great workout! I felt engaged the entire time and felt a great accomplishment when I finished. I hate running but my friend loves it and it's a great workout we can do together and both feel equally accomplished and actually enjoy the work out.
The coaches at the Stapleton location are great! Pam, Ross, Mark, Lewi and Hannah constantly are encouraging and cheering on the class. Also Pam and Ross are incredible at giving instruction on how to property do the moves in the weight room to prevent injury and they are always watching and engaged with the class to make sure everyone is doing the excersise safely and efficiently to get the best work out.
Consistent & efficient use of the time, challenging while being able to go at your own pace to deal with whatever issues you may have going on at the time, variety and opportunity to work on different parts of the body, music and class environment help with motivation, awesome trainers who are always friendly, professional, punctual and who do a great job leading everyone through the workout every single time!
Everything! My only suggestion is that the trainers make a point of knowing who is in their class. I have been working out in the Stapleton studio for 2 years and usually work out 2 to 4xs a week, the instructor (Mark) whose class I attend the most has never once asked my name or acts as if he has ever seen me before.
The coaches are great and I push myself harder at OTF than I would if working out on my own. I also like that I can duplicate a lot of the workout routines when I'm traveling for work at the hotel gym.
Always a great workout! Coaches are fantastic - clear and well organized.
Only concern is the level of sound in the studio - a risk for clients and coaches. Even cursory research on noise levels and permanent hearing damage would indicate that studio noise is too high. The New Yorker just did a great article recently - http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/04/03/high-tech-hope-for-the-hard-of-hearing
I have seen clients using earplugs and I will likely start, as well. This should be a red flag for Stapleton Studio & HQ,
