Many gyms have moved in the direction of group exercise studios, while other gyms bristle with free weights and machines. Onelife Fitness in Ballston Quarter brings all these types of training together in one place -- from yoga and meditation to the power rack.
In this video, Libby Bish from the Keri Shull Team takes us inside the newly-renovated Onelife Fitness.
Onelife for Cardio and Weight Training
Libby toured Onelife’s Ballston location with elite personal trainer William Sorrentino.
Onelife’s cardio space has no sign-up sheets or waiting lists. You’ll find plenty of stationary bikes, ellipticals, freestanding bikes, stretching mats, and an area for abdominal and core exercises. The cardio space overlooks Ballston quarter, so it’s awash in natural light.
The free weight area has 4 Olympic lifting racks (soon to be 5) and a power rack. All are equipped with weight lifting dumbbells. Free weights are also available in this central area of the gym.
Onelife also has nearly 30 yards of indoor turf space for explosive performance training: running, jumping, ballistic training, and more.
Onelife’s Training Programs and Events
All trainers at Onelife are equipped to address the average person’s fitness goals.
Sorrentino had this to say about his training approach:
“I use a strength and conditioning model to address my clients' strength needs. Conditioning-wise, I try to bring everyone through some type of athletic platform: Running, twisting, throwing, jumping, doing things that challenge you athletically so you can feel better doing things that you already do every day.”
Onelife’s calendar is packed with daily classes, including:
- Weights classes to build strength
- Cycling classes
- Full-body “Hard Drive” conditioning workout classes
- High-Intensity Interval Training
- Ballet-inspired “Barre One” classes
- Yoga and Pilates-inspired classes to build flexibility and balance
Onelife’s multiple yoga offerings include Slow Flow, Vinyasa, and Hatha yoga. See their current class schedule for availability.
Onelife also offers a Kids' Club area where kids can get some active play while parents get their workout in. Well, that leaves us with one less excuse not to get more exercise.
