THE TRIP: THE TRIP, an IMMERSIVE FITNESS program, adds a rich visual layer to music and groupexercise. Cinema quality video content is projected onto the screen of a purpose-built studio, while an instructor cues exercise moves that synchronize perfectly with music and graphics.

The immersive experience creates a heightened sense of anticipation and reward for participants that leads to increased motivation and energy. This is the first IMMERSIVE FITNESS studio to open on the East Coast.
