5 Shoulder-Season Workouts Worth Checking Out
As we patiently wait for our beloved trails to dry out, there are plenty of indoor fitness options in Park City. Check out these local outfits, which offer everything from boxing and H.I.T. workouts to yoga and customized strength training.
Professional boxer Maryguenn Vellinga-Hinz and her husband, Luke Hinz, opened RISE Boxing in May 2018 with the goal of creating challenging but fun boxing workouts for athletes of all levels. The beginner-friendly fitness classes incorporate a mix of body-weight strength exercises and punch combinations—don’t worry, they’ll teach you the basics—for a full-body session. “For skiing, mountain biking, or whatever your main sport is, boxing is really good cross-training and develops good agility and footwork,” Vellinga-Hinz says. “It’s also very cardiovascular, so it carries over to whatever your outside pursuit is.” Bonus: Your first class as a Park City resident is free. First time free; $149 for a 10-class punch pass; various monthly memberships available; 435.800.2104; 2720 Rasmussen Rd. Ste A4
Tadasana takes heated Power Vinyasa classes and adds its own spins, from the chill 45-minute Sunrise Flow to PowerJAM (yoga plus loud tunes).

Tadasana is also offering a “40 Days to Personal Revolution” program starting April 24, with an emphasis on creating new habits via yoga, meditation, reading, and dietary awareness ($150 before April 15). $23 drop-in; $169 for a 10-class punch pass; local new client special, $35 for 7 consecutive days; 3156 Quarry Road #3, 435.649.7260
The Beau Collective
Set to a soundtrack of pump-up music with motivating coaches leading the way, Beau Collective has been serving up effective high-intensity interval sessions since 2014. The format: a fast and furious 45 minutes filled with challenging cardio and strength moves for the entire body (fair warning—grab a towel, you will sweat). A complement to your outdoor endeavors, Beau’s quick-and-dirty workouts are open to drop-ins Monday through Thursday at 6:15 p.m., Saturday at 7 a.m.; and Sunday at 5 p.m. “We love crafting an experience every class and our main goal is for people to have a good time inside the Barn so that they can go have an even better time physically in Park City’s playground of activities,” says co-owner Whitney White Kozlowski. “We want people to love the mix of cardio, core, and strength, and they can count on each class being different and challenging every time.” $15 drop-in; 12-week sessions also available; 435.729.9425, 3770 Hwy 224

The AR-FIT Challenge makes the perfect spring primer, with unlimited workout classes to develop strength, flexibility, and fitness from April 15–May 25. The Challenge includes pre- and post-testing to measure progress, a running mechanics analysis, a free nutritional assessment, and weekly prizes.

Co-owners Tiffany Harrison and Misty Philbrick took a holistic approach to health when they opened Enlighten Wellness in October 2018. Their wellness center offers yoga, fitness classes, massage, acupuncture, and more. To prep your body for the spring transition, Philbrick recommends any of Enlighten’s TRX suspension training classes—which you can make as easy or as difficult as you want—or one of the center’s hot yoga classes. “We have hot power flows and heated Vinyasa flows that would benefit everybody from beginners to advanced yogis,” Philbrick says. “The heat improves flexibility and improves muscle strength, helps remove toxins from the body, boosts health and immunity, increases blood flow, promotes better lung capacity, and you burn more calories.” $18 drop-in; monthly passes start at $120; 435.649.7413, 1912 Sidewinder Dr., Suite #105
