If you’ve ever thought about trying boutique fitness, there’s no better time than now. With tens of thousands of studios that specialize in everything from indoor cycling, to Pilates, barre, strength training, yoga and more, there’s an exciting workout to try that fits every fitness goal. If you are new to working out or are looking to switch up your exercise routine, here are five reasons to love boutique fitness. 

 

Specific workout options just for you! 

Boutique studios often specialize in a specific type of fitness, making them an expert in their space. Whether you’re looking to elevate your practice at aerial yoga or feel the burn at HIIT bootcamp, boutique fitness offers you the ability to learn a new exercise or put your skills to the test with an array of specially scheduled group classes.

 

Knowledgeable instructors. 

The instructors that teach boutique fitness classes are there for a reason—they know their stuff! Having a leader that fully understands the type of workout he or she is teaching makes a huge difference in class. Not only can they offer professional guidance, but their training also allows them to personalize your workout experience, modifying sequences to fit your individual needs. 

 

Really cool spaces.

Boutique fitness studios create inspirational (often Instagram-worthy) environments to motivate you further the moment you walk through the door. From indoor cycling classes with black lights and loud music, to super zen yoga rooms that have aromatherapy and candles, immerse yourself fully in all the exercise experience vibes.

 

A variety of class options. 

With millions of workout classes offered on the MINDBODY app and MINDBODY website, you have the opportunity to try all different types of boutique fitness that fit your goals. Maybe it’s hot yoga today? Barre tomorrow? MINDBODY makes it easy to book thousands of individual boutique fitness classes in your neighborhood, at a price and time that works for you. 

 

You won’t get bored. 

Fight the workout burnout! Keep your exercise routine exciting with boutique fitness. MINDBODY features endless class options that allow you to find (and try) something new, time after time. Discover the workouts you love at unique studios that support your every move.

breast cancer awareness month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month—Here’s How You Can Make a Difference

Approximately 12,000 women aged 40 or younger are diagnosed with breast cancer every year*. Fortunately, there are preventative steps that we can take to help protect ourselves and each other—one of the best ones being exercise. That’s right. Not only does exercise help us release endorphins, but just 30 minutes of exercise three to four times per week can help decrease a person’s risk of developing breast cancer by 30–50%*.

This is hope in a statistic. Just by adopting a more healthy, active lifestyle, we could prevent the risk of developing breast cancer, while also inspiring others to reduce their risk as well. Keep A Breast Foundation has made doing just this their mission through their annual fundraising campaign, Fit 4 Prevention.

Every October, studios from all over the globe participate by raising money through donation-based workout classes for the Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB). They have created a national movement dedicated to educating others about breast cancer prevention through fitness and wellness—something Mindbody is extremely passionate about. Participating in your favorite activities, all while supporting, preventing, and spreading awareness about breast cancer awareness? Let’s get moving.

Encourage your favorite studio to sign up for the event

If you want to take a donation-based class at your favorite studio, encourage your favorite studios to sign up to bring your community closer together in a meaningful way. Registering is quick and easy. If you think your local studio may be interested in participating, have them check out KAB’s help pagewhere they can learn how to register for a donation-based class during the month of October. KAB even has a social media kit available to fitness studios to help them promote their donation-based classes.  

Other ways to help

Can’t find a local studio to take a donation-based class near you? Don’t worry, you can still give your support by donating directly to KAB’s website. Luckily, any time that you are moving your body and spreading the word—you’re doing your part in spreading awareness on how to help prevent breast cancer. That is beyond amazing.

This October, we hope you’ll join us in our plight to support the KAB Foundation and its mission to help prevent breast cancer through cultivating a healthier, more active lifestyle. Through movement, health, and wellness—we can reach great heights, together.
