Summer’s coming in hot. This travel season, don’t sweat the tourist traps—instead, check out a trendy summer workout or two at your next destination. Because sweating’s better with a purpose.
Here’s what we found out about the fitness scenes in Denver, Boston, and San Francisco!
Fitness isn’t just a hobby in Denver—it’s a lifestyle. Nearly 78% of Denver residents exercise at least once a week. Their fave group workout? Yoga, followed by strength training. Kickboxing’s what they want to try next.
Staying fit takes grit, though. Denver’s main motivations are to reduce stress, and to gain/lose weight.
Boston loves striking a pose. Yoga and Pilates are the city’s core (yeah, we went there) group fitness classes. Kickboxing’s next on the to-do list.
In Boston, it’s good vibes only. Residents work out to feel good, and better mentally. They even spend 23% more a year on fitness than the average American to keep their spirits up.
Picking up heavy things, putting them down. That’s what San Francisco likes to do. Strength training is The City’s second most popular group fitness class, after yoga. The next big thing to look out for: aerobics.
Why they do it? To live long, healthy lives. (And for the gains, of course.) It pays off too—SF’s the #2 strongest wellness market in the US.
Kyle House Fitness is Chattanooga’s premier fitness program offering group fitness classes and personal training with the best-certified instructors and trainers in the area. Located on Chattanooga’s thriving Southside, Kyle House Fitness is more than a gym, they pride themselves on building a welcoming and inclusive community. The owners of this gym, Kyle House and Kyle Miller (AKA The Kyles), may sound familiar to you since they recently wrote a blog post for us on how to be an LGBTQIA+ ally in the fitness space.
Since they happen to be one of the most influential duos in the fitness industry, we were eager to sit down and learn more about what wellness means to them. Ready to get to know The Kyles better? Let’s dive in.
We have always had a love for fitness. From an early age, we were both very athletic (swimming, gymnastics, and cheerleading). Once we graduated, we slowly transitioned into training young athletes and then later started working on our careers. Kyle House started personal training at a large gym and began building a solid career as a personal trainer and groups fitness instructor. Kyle Miller started working in marketing and communications ranging from politics, law enforcement, and tech becoming a leading public relations professional. After working in their fields for about 10 years they decided to combine their love of fitness with their experience and built one of the most successful fitness facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
During our time working at other gyms and visiting other facilities that many were either missing qualified and motivating trainers, topnotch customer service, or a workout that was balanced and would lead to results for everyone whether they were casual fitness enthusiasts or hardcore athletes. We are motivated on a day-to-day basis by the idea that we can always be better. The experience can get better, the community can grow stronger, and we can continue to show people that fitness is more than just a way to look good, it's therapy.
Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun... it's not all healthy food, it's not just junk food—it's about finding a way to reach your own personal goals while still having a healthy relationship with fitness, friends, family, and food—otherwise known as the four Fs.
If you're in the Chattanooga area, you should definitely check out Kyle House Fitness to take your wellness routine to the next level. You can book classes on the Mindbody app or through their KHF app.
