When you hear the word exercise, do you think, "ugh, it's so boring!!"? Well there are new fitness playgrounds coming to the D.  The Edge Fitness Clubs will provide a twist to traditional workouts that will make you excited to exercise.

Laura Altieri with The Edge Fitness Clubs joined Tait Amare and Jason Carr to discuss how these gyms are different from other places. Altieri says The Edge Fitness Clubs provide high value at a low cost, offering all of the classes and amenities a person could want including Zumba classes and Edge Kids Fitness, where children can enjoy their own gym while their parents work out. There's even a Edge-cinema, a room with a movie screen and workout equipment instead of chairs   

Altieri also showed Carr and Amare, along with Kila Peeples, some of the exercises taught at Edge Fitness Clubs. From burpees to squat jacks, The Edge Fitness Clubs offer traditional workouts in a new, cutting-edge facility.

The first locations for The Edge Fitness Clubs will open in 2019 in Farmington Hills and Sterling Heights. The Edge Fitness Clubs plans to open 12 to 15 locations in the Detroit area. To learn more about what The Edge Fitness Clubs offer, or to sign up for updates on openings, visit their website.
