So, tell me about True40… what are you all about?

True40 is an uplifting studio that provides a comprehensive workout suited for all ages and fitness levels! Our classes are unique in that they provide various kinds of exercise into one 60-minute workout, all low-impact, with a focus on core strengthening. We promise you a different class every time you come to keep your muscles guessing! It is a community that we’ve created where you feel empowered and revived up on taking a class, and encouraged and welcomed the second you walk in the door.

If I’m a beginner, will I be able to keep up in a True40 class?

True40 is meant for all fitness levels, body types and ages!  Our workouts are designed to be low-impact, with no jumping and minimal stress on your joints. Our instructors are trained to give variations and modifications to meet your specific needs.

I’m excited to visit. How long is each session?

We’re excited to meet you!  Each class is 60 minutes long. Please arrive 15 minutes before class to fill out new paperwork and meet the team! Your instructor will help you get set up and ready for class.  

If I have an injury, can I still participate in one of your workouts?

We advise that you consult with your doctor first to make sure fitness is an appropriate step in your recovery. Please inform the instructor of your injury before class and she will assist you with modifications. Listen to your body!

I’m new…what is TRX?

TRX stands for Total Body Resistance Exercise. TRX suspension straps use your bodyweight against gravity to fire up the entire body for a major calorie burn! You’ll build core strength to stabilize your body through each exercise.

What should I wear?

We suggest comfortable workout clothes, something you can stretch and bend in. To maintain a clean studio, we require clients to wear sticky socks, which are available for purchase in the studio. Our studio boutique also offers active wear from several lines.

Where should I park?

The Battery (complex we are located in) has a dedicated parking lot! There is also street parking surrounding the building that is not monitored.

Do you have showers?

We have a shower and a large changing area! 

What if I forget to bring water, or a towel?

No sweat! Water bottles are available for purchase for $1, or you can use the studio’s water fountains to refresh your own bottle.  We also offer complimentary hand towels.

Is it okay to take a class multiple times a week?

The national recommendation for exercise states that for major health benefits, perform at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week and include muscle-strengthening activities 2 or more days a week. True40 workouts are low-impact and are safe for every day. We recommend 3-4 classes a week, but the more you come, the faster you will see results!

I am a soon-to-be momma…is True40 safe for pregnant women?

Classes are safe for those who are pregnant, but we encourage conversations with your physician to ensure that fitness is the next best step for you. Throughout the class, your instructor will offer modifications. If something doesn't feel right, listen to your body, and ask an instructor for further clarification.  We encourage the same for women postpartum!

Are all True40 classes the same?

While each True40 class has the same setup and design, the specific exercises targeting different areas of the body will vary. Our True40 instructors each bring a different energy and personality to the workout!

I really like the mission you have set for your company and the excitement you have for clients, but how will True40 change my body?

True40 classes will lengthen and tone your muscles, give you an energy boost and make you feel confident and comfortable in your own body. You will notice an increase in strength in your legs, arms and core, tightening and lift in your glutes, and also improvement in your overall posture and balance. 

Besides physical changes to my body, what else can I expect?

What we hear most from our clients is that after consistently taking True40 classes they sleep better, feel less stressed, have better posture, feel more energized and lessen the symptoms of any injuries/ailments.

I hear you have childcare. Tell me more!

We offer childcare for a small additional fee. True40 employees all hold CPR certification, and our childcare staff has experience with children of all ages. We welcome children ages 6 weeks to 10 years old. In the studio's play space, your child can play with toys, puzzles, read, and do homework. For the safety of your little one, we limit childcare capacity to five children per class. Check the schedule online for childcare classes and registration (please register in advance).
