About Solcioty

A Solcioty workout involves five heart rate training zones, a motivating class instructor and one amazing hour of time. While wearing a heart rate monitor, members are led through multiple intervals of exercise activities in a high-tech, high-energy environment where high- fives abound. Each zone represents an increased level of intensity. Heart rates go up, calories are burned and goals are reached.

Diversified workouts provide the healthiest exercise routines. The Solcioty experience gives our programmers the best variety to produce workouts to maximize results for each member. Functional exercises, core training, cardio interval training, and strength training using each piece of equipment, combine for a selection of more than 1000 different exercises. This creates an infinite number of workout combinations, where the same workout will never be repeated twice.

The Solcioty experience provides more cardio, more strength and more core.
