As the temperatures drop, so can your motivation for working out. Three top Atlanta trainers share winter-workout essentials that keep them warm, stylish, and eager to hit the gym.
Get in a quick Atlanta workout with 9Round, which mixes kickboxing with strength and core stations, Plate Sculpt, which uses a Power Plate to activate the body’s natural reflexes, and F45 Training’s combination of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and traditional circuits.
MADabolic, a Charlotte-based athletic fitness studio, opened its first Atlanta location at Studioplex in July. Classes are based on the MAD formula, which stands for three different types of intervals—momentum-based, anaerobic speed, and durability drills.
Jonathan Kolowich is the kind of fitness trainer whose Instagram videos make you say, “Wait, whaaaaaat?” We’re talking about moves like Turkish get-ups with a heavy barbell or plyometric push-ups that jump from benches to the floor and back. These kinds of physical feats take practice, strength, and stamina, but Kolowich has to think about, monitor, and manage his blood sugar.

I want to bounce. And by bounce, I mean, soar—high in the air, my legs in what I imagine is a glorious stag-leap, my stomach dropping a little as I descend. But unfortunately that’s not on the agenda for this class at DEFINE fitness studio in Buckhead.
If your enthusiasm for the treadmill is waning (or nonexistent), take advantage of the warmer weather with this circuit training workout in Piedmont Park.
Let me start with an admission: I'm not really a “barre girl.” I favor boot camps that bring you pretty close to the point of puking. So I thought maybe Pure Barre’s new format, Platform, would be a better fit for me.
