Knowing the importance of physical activity and social connection, one local fitness boutique is launching on-demand and live virtual classes to keep their community engaged, healthy and happy.
It’s Working Out is a “Boutique fitness studio with TRX, Water Rower and Foam Rolling Classes, personal training and a year round Golf Fitness Program led by Titleist Performance Institute Certified Trainers,” says Kristen McAuliffe, owner of It’s Working Out.
There are a variety of different classes offered through It’s Working Out and they include: TRX, Stretch and Foam Roll and Golf Fitness. People can experience the fitness classes online, as well as in person. “We have over 40 weekly classes in person at our Columbia Tusculum Studio,” McAuliffe says. “Our members also have access to over 60 On Demand workouts from our website and we have live virtual classes as well, that can be accessed by reserving via our schedule page. A link is sent to join the class one hour before class begins. Zoom is the platform we use.” They have been having the online classes since the studio was forced to close down due to statewide restrictions.
The inspiration behind starting the online classes came from a desire to keep the community engaged in the midst of quaratine. “We know how important exercise is for health, both physically and mentally, and wanted to make sure we were there for our members when the studio needed to close for 10 weeks,” she says.
It’s Working Out defines success by whether or not they are working out safely. “Are the participants having fun, while completing safe and effective workout that can be modified for various fitness levels and orthopedic limitations? Are they achieving the goals they set for themselves from coming consistently to the three modalities we offer (strength, cardio, strength) for a complete fitness routine,” McAuliffe says.
