What makes infrared better than a standard workout: With an infrared workout, it takes only a short time to generate an incredible calorie burn and supercharge to your metabolism for weight loss. You experience the same high-level energy spent post-workout as your body works off calories to achieve homeostasis. Through exposure to infrared during exercise, your body will burn fat because your muscles gain energy from processing fat and sugar supplied from your blood. Some other benefits from infrared include sports recovery, cellulite and stress reduction, pain relief, anti-aging benefits, weight loss, and lower blood pressure—to name a few.

Are there other workout spaces besides the “hot” ones? We also offer a state-of-the-art FX Zone (Functional Exercise Zone) that includes weights, stability balls, medicines balls, battle ropes, pull-up bars, a dip station, and other equipment available for any combination of functional training and exercise routines. The App also offers VPT workouts that can be done in the FX Zone in the studio.

Personal Training: Each session is led by a certified Virtual Instructor and is available 24/7.

Do you have to bring any of your own equipment? A HOTWORX mat and towel are required for all isometric sessions. Be sure to bring your water!

Get More With the App: HOTWORX has developed its own Burn Off App, which allows members to schedule and keep track of their workout sessions. The Burn Off App communicates with their Apple Watch, FitBit, or other devices to record calories during each workout and during the afterburn. When a new member joins a HOTWORX studio and begins to use the Burn Off App, they start their first 90-day challenge and every 90 days thereafter the challenge resets. The app also offers Virtual Personal Training (VPT) to members who upgrade their memberships to Sweat Everywhere (allowing access to every studio in the world). The VPT feature gives members access to personal workouts any time of day, whether in the studio or at home.
