Boutique workout studios continue to pop up EVERYWHERE. There is always a new exercise or method but what doesn’t seem to sway is the high prices of these classes. It’s safe to say it can be very expensive and many people don’t have the cash to pay $35 for a drop-in class. At HBFIT we feel that fitness should be something everyone should have available to them, especially group fitness. It creates community, increases motivation, and it is often more fun than going to the gym by yourself. So, the HBFIT team looked at all the major cities (LA, SF, CHI, NYC, BOS) and rounded up a list of affordable group workouts, that are bound to make you sweat. Check it out below!
