Equinox understands that no runner is an island. Starting this September, the gym will offer Precision Running, a new treadmill-based group class that aims to tweak your techniques in a social setting.
Created by David Siik (track and field record holder, degree in biomedical science and chemistry, all around badass), the class works to improve your abilities in four major areas: speed, incline, duration, and recovery.
Siik based his class design on Balanced Interval Training Experience, or B.I.T.E., a method of interval training that helps strike that crucial balance between aerobic and anaerobic exercise (read: higher calorie burn, lower injury risk). The 60-minute class also provides personalized data collection so that participants can set and exceed individual goals.
Precision Running will be offered at all three of the area's Equinox locations -- allowing you to run between multiple sessions, perhaps?
