Partner Spotlight: FIT36

With a new year comes the opportunity to set fresh goals and with Lakehouse Denver equipped with a state-of-the-art gym and located near some of Denver’s premier exercise studios, it makes it that much easier for residents to stay on-track with their fitness resolutions.

As the WELL Building Standard promotes movement, physical activity and active living in an effort to discourage sedentary behaviors that often lead to various health complications, it was incredibly important to the developer of Lakehouse to incorporate active living through the design, location, community partners and amenities at Lakehouse to boost resident’s overall wellness.

Located in LoDo, Fit36 is a class-based studio with a focus on High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Offering a one-of-a-kind, 36-minute workout designed to help you train at an intensity level that helps torch fat, build strength and create muscle endurance, Fit 36 will help fitness enthusiasts stay in shape without spending hours of time at a gym.

In advance of 2020, we sat down with Fit36 co-owner Brad Cooley to learn about the benefits of HIIT workouts and how you can stick to those challenging New Year’s fitness resolutions:

How is Fit36 different from a typical workout class?
FIT36 is different from your typical fitness studio because we offer a small group, 36-minute HIIT workout that focuses on functional strength, cardio and endurance. Our expertly designed circuits combine; intense cardio to spike your metabolism; resistance training to build strength: and dynamic movements to improve overall fitness and core stability. The result is total body training focused on working smarter for faster results.

What are some of the benefits of HIIT workouts?
The benefits of HIIT workouts are all about efficiency. A total body workout takes less than an hour and you’ll see a higher calorie burn that also lasts longer, and minimal equipment and space is needed. One of the benefits to FIT36 in particular is that we have studios across the country and we are growing. One membership gives access to all studios!

What can participants expect from a class at Fit36?
Participants of a FIT36 workout can expect a fast pace, good vibes, unique exercises, micro-cycle programs written by certified personal trainers and more of a personal touch due to the nature of small group class sizes.

What do you think is unique about the fitness community in Denver and how does that play into Fit36?
The fitness community in Denver is big and competitive, but it’s great.  Everyone has their own vibe and everyone is happy to share their story and to pull together for events and fundraisers.

What advice would you give someone who is committing to a fitness resolution in the new year?
Our advice to committing to a New Year’s fitness resolution is to set a short term AND a long-term goal that is realistic. Take small steps towards these goals as you get started so that you’re not overwhelmed by the work it takes, disappointed by the lack of results in a short amount of time, or in pain from the workouts – so much that you’re unwilling to get back into it.

Even more so, keep your nutrition program on point.  Again, baby steps here too.  Don’t be too hard on yourself, as you’ll find yourself unhappy about all of these changes happening too quickly.  Eat clean, train hard and sleep well.  Enjoy the process, enjoy the results.

How will Fit36 be partnering with Lakehouse?
Fit36 has partnered with Lakehouse to help program their fitness lab and select equipment that will be beneficial for all different ages and fitness levels.

We will assist with resident orientations and show people around the fitness facilities. We will also be conducting on-site classes as well as special classes at Sloan’s Lake Park, as we did for our Fitness Series events this past summer.

In addition, Lakehouse residents will be offered discounts for classes at our studio, including private training sessions.
