AMP Fitness has been selected as one of the Top 10 workouts for 2015 by The Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Stretching Out column.
Writer Zachary Lewis, who spent the year visiting a variety of gyms, trainers and fitness centers in Northeast Ohio for his weekly column on fitness trends and AMP Fitness made his year-end list of the top places to get fit in Northeast Ohio.
Larry Tedor’s training studio in Beachwood hooked me right from the start. Competitive by nature, I loved not only the all-inclusive workout he put me through but also seeing in real time how my working heart-rate stacked up against others. Still, what kept me coming back on a private basis was the stretching. For months, Tedor’s vigorous therapeutic work on my calves, hamstrings, hips and quadriceps gave me all the energy I needed.
At AMP Fitness, coaches put fresh twists on the term personal training, displaying their clients’ health stats on large screens in real time as they exercise.
Here’s the thing, though: it works. Rather than embarrass, the ticker actually promotes friendly rivalries that drive people to work harder. Beyond that, it provides coaches live data around which to shape workouts.
Credit for this goes to MyZone, a sleek combo of hard- and software employed throughout the studio, and around the world. Sporting its heart-rate monitors, all clients feed their data straight to AMP’s screen and into the cloud.
But fancy technology isn’t all Amp Fitness has going for it. No, the studio also pairs its chest-straps with serious exercise and a focused, data-driven philosophy.
My reward for this exhausting hour? 650 calories. More, I couldn’t help notice, than the rest at Amp that day. But I didn’t let it go to my head. My calorie count may have been high, but my point tally was basically average.
Talk about motivating. Seeing my performance quantified and rated had exactly the desired effect. Now, instead of sitting home nursing my tired body, I’m dying to go back and see if I can’t do better. That’s a feeling even the fittest of us could stand to have more often.
