A NEW WAY TO GET YOUR WORKOUT ON
Fit9, a fitness studio from the owners of Stellar Bodies, has opened its doors in Buckhead. The one-hour group workouts combine high-intensity interval training and metabolic conditioning, as well as elements from boxing and athletic training, to maximize clients’ results while minimizing injury. Using top-of-the line exercise equipment and technology, you’ll strengthen every muscle in your body, boost your heart health and torch major calories. “From the time you walk into the studio with its utilitarian chic design, you are immediately energized and motivated,” explains co-founder Jeff Toney. But don’t worry, even if you’re an exercise newbie, you’ll still get in a great workout. “Fit9 is a no-judgment workout where everyone will feel comfortable,” says Toney.
