At Air-Tan, we see A LOT of different clients from all over Indy each and everyday. Customers are always asking us where the best places in Indy are for hair, nails, eyebrows, massages…you name it. With the start of the new year being a popular time to reinstate a work out plan, we’ve gotten a lot of questions about what gyms or fitness studios are the best in our area. Us Air-Tan girls have two top spots that we like to go to feel the burn. Personally, I prefer small studios rather than big box gyms like LA Fitness or Lifetime Fitness. At the smaller places, I feel like it’s more of a community and provides more support and encouragement!
My favorite place in Broad Ripple is Studio 49 Fitness. The owner, Christie Thrasher-Rudd, has been a loyal Air-Tan customer almost since the beginning. Christie really knows her stuff. She has a degree in exercise science from Purdue and has over 25 years experience in the fitness world. My favorite class that she teaches is Step Interval, which I actually took that class this morning, and I’m already feeling sore! It definitely is a TOTAL body work out, and she uses all kinds of different fitness toys to keep things different and interesting. You will never get bored in one of her classes that is for sure. Another great thing that Christie offers is special group classes. A couple months ago ALL of the Air-Tan employees took a custom class from her on a Sunday morning. Everyone is at different fitness levels, and Christie made it fun and doable for everyone!
If you are in the Fishers area, a great studio we recently discovered is Barre Bee Fit, which is pretty much right down the road from Air-Tan Fishers. BBF is actually a franchise that started in Chicago, and the Fishers location is the very first expansion location! The program combines cardio conditioning, strength training, and restoration in its varying types of classes. You definitely feel like you’ve gotten a major work out that you can feel good about after going to one of the classes. One really unique aspect about Barre Bee Fit is that they are the first fitness program to utilize an iPad app to synchronize the music and lighting all together to give you a full-on experience while you’re working up a sweat. It really is pretty cool! This month, if you buy any Air-Tan package, you get the opportunity to check out BBF for yourself for FREE because we are giving away a complimentary class (A “Free Bee”, isn’t that cute?) with purchase.
No matter if you are fit or not, getting your Air-Tan on will definitely make you feel better inside and out! Just make sure you schedule your appointment for AFTER you get your work out on. Remember: No sweating or getting wet for 8 hours after getting an Air-Tan application. Call us in Broad Ripple at 317.254.8267 or in Fishers at 317.576.8267.
