What is the FIT9 workout?
FIT9 is a one-hour full body workout designed to help you achieve your physical and mental best. Our goal is to get you from where you are now to where you want to be. Fit9 can help you achieve this by blending the heart-pumping, fat-shredding elements of high intensity interval training (HIIT) with muscle-building, high performance elements of metabolic conditioning (MetCon).
The FIT9 workout devotes equal time to various high-intensity drills on the Technogym Skillmill™ and weighted and body-weight work on the floor using soft-plyo boxes, Crosscore equipment, compound exercises and boxing using the Aqua Bag. FIT9’s group-oriented classes are the first in the United States to use Unity Self, SkillMill’s performance-tracking software, which uses each person’s fitness data as a motivational tool to improve performance.
- By downloading the Technogym My Wellness App, all performance information from the Skillmill, such as “moves,” calories burned, and total mileage is saved after each session and over time. This information is used to track performance over time, and the number of MOVES are used for performance challenges for prizes. Moves are based on METS which is an energy expenditure gauge. The more energy you exert the more moves you earn, which equals more results and prizes.
- Classes are broken down into four, 15-minute segments, for a total of 60 thrilling minutes. One of the 15 minute segments on the Skillmill entails “Speed and Stamina,” which includes sprinting, walking and running with resistance, and running with a variance of speed and resistance with little break. A second block on the Skillmill is “Power and Agility,” which include drills on a high resistance such as high sled pushes, side shuffles, figure 8’s and burpee jumps. During the 15-minute metabolic conditioning segment on the floor, weights, balls, soft plyo boxes, bands, and crosscores are only a few of the tools used to keep one’s heartrate up and those muscles toned. The last of the 9 elements, coordination, is showcased and combined with the other 8 in the final block: boxing on the aqua bag.

How do I sign up for a FIT9 workout?
How often should I attend a FIT9 workout?
We recommend that our fitness enthusiasts attend a FIT9 workout three or more days per week for best results, but one class is better than no classes!
I've never experienced anything like FIT9 before, what should I expect? Is it going to be too hard? Can I keep up?
FIT9 is set up in “stations,” rows that contain the SkillMill, plyo boxes, weights, Crosscore and the Aqua Bag. As you progress, you make your way down the row, performing that class’s particular set of exercises meant to build maximum performance and endurance.
Participants will appreciate the ease of transition from station to station. The workout is totally scalable, as each lane will have access to the right equipment to fit the user’s needs. FIT9 is a no-judgment workout that anyone should feel comfortable doing. There are always modifications we can make to accommodate for, or further challenge, any attendee.
Is boxing safe?
Yes, boxing is totally safe! In fact, we use a special punching bag called the Aqua Bag, which is designed to absorb impact and protect joints. If there are still concerns about boxing, participants can skip over the boxing station.
