I've never been set on fire and left to burn in slow motion for 50 minutes.
Instructors interweave yoga and pilates-inspired strength and core moves—like plank to pike—on a rowing machine (seriously!).
Exactly 3 minutes into [the] 50-minute Pyrolates session – my legs are quivering like Jell-o … working my muscles to failure with alarming efficiency.
Firebrand Sports leads a growing number of hybrid studios merging the Megaformer with workouts like barre.
Pyrolates can be described as Pilates on fire – slow, controlled movements that you repeat until your muscles fail. Transitions are quick and intensity is high.
It's quite a workout. It didn't take long for my whole body to fatigue causing my legs to shake.
If you’re not shaking you’re not doing it right,’ Lagree said into a headset microphone, easing a student into a deeper lunge.
Firebrand is fierce, focused, and fun. But, above all, the workouts held inside this handsome space work.
The workout is high-octane but low-impact … and it takes your core muscles for a ferocious ride.
These classes take it to a new level with their addictive blend of ab-zinging moves, magnetic instructors and a never-want-to-leave studio.
This is the hardest and best workout I have ever done in my life and the only one I've ever stuck to.
I knew if I was doing it right, it would hurt. And it hurt.
