Mecha's RESISTANCE classes follow the Lagree Fitness method which borrows elements from Pilates to create a zero-impact, no-rest, 50-minute experience. We use the Megaformer machine to build deep core strength, long and lean muscles, balance and flexibility, improved concentration, and a body that is less prone to injury. Various types of lunges, planks, and pushing and pulling moves are part of every class. All exercises are performed until your muscles are fully fatigued. Then you keep going a little longer! You can read more about our resistance training here.
Mecha offers a number of different types of CARDIO+ (“cardio plus”) classes varying in both length and style. Each of our classes are programmed based on High-Intensity Interval-Training (HIIT), to give you an efficient and effective workout. All CARDIO+ classes will get your heart pumping through sprints, time trials, and endurance intervals using low-impact cardio equipment such as Concept 2 SkiErgs, VersaClimbers, and Schwinn Airdyne Bikes. You won’t have to do any running or box jumps to spike your heart rate in the CARDIO+ room. Classes also incorporate strength work using body weight exercises as well as Rope Trainers, TRX, sandbags, resistance bands, Surge Pipes, Bosu balls, soft plyo boxes, and more.
Hybrid classes fuse CARDIO+ and RESISTANCE training into a single incredible experience. HYBRID classes are perfect for those who want the most efficient full-body workout imaginable. We recommend that you take at least one normal RESISTANCE class prior to taking a HYBRID because there is no time in a HYBRID class to receive a proper RESISTANCE orientation. Please be sure to bring athletic shoes, a water bottle, and grip socks.
*HYBRID classes are available with Studio-Wide Memberships and class purchases.
