ALTR will give customers the expertise of a personal trainer delivered in a highly intensive group setting. Fifty minutes of physical and mental intensity with transcendent lighting and immersive sound to create an energetic total body workout utilizing High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). The in-studio lighting effects will be amplified when combined with music tempered to the pace of the workout. The studio will also include a rare custom built spring-loaded floor alleviating pressure on joints.
