GREENWICH RESIDENTS JILL WEISS AND JENNY KLEIN OF GREENWICH AND JANET DEFRINO OF ROWAYTON LAUNCH GOSTRIDE
A NEW, HIGH INTENSITY, TOTAL BODY CARDIO WORKOUT
Port Chester, NY – February 24, 2016 – GoStride, a new group fitness studio which is the first of its kind in North America, offers classes that provide high intensity yet low impact, full-body cardio workouts on a strider. The first location is in the Whole Foods shopping center in Port Chester, NY.
GoStride’s program, set to energizing music in a dimly studio, challenges the whole body and combines the benefits of hiking, running, rowing and riding into one workout. During the 50-minute striding class, instructors lead guests through a unique and varied workout which encourages them to maintain a strong core and good posture. Co-founder Jenny Klein explains, “GoStride’s program is designed specifically to minimize the strain on supporting muscles and ligaments, yet our clients can expect to leave the studio drenched.”
Co-Founder Jill Weiss continues, “the strider has elements of both an elliptical and spin bike — it has a flywheel like a spin bike, but our striders preserve the natural movement of the body like an elliptical”. Further, each strider has a monitor which provides precise information about the guests’ workout real-time. After 40 minutes of intense cardio, the GoStride workout concludes with 7 minutes of free weights or bands, followed by a 3-minute stretch. The studio is equipped with men’s and women’s locker rooms and carries a curated selection of athletic wear.
Co-founders Jill Weiss and Jenny Klein of Greenwich and Janet DeFrino of Rowayton, CT have backgrounds in finance and marketing and have long nurtured a desire to form a unique business in the health and fitness sector. According to Janet, “We are passionate about GoStride because physical fitness is so integral to our lives and we believe that people young and old will be prioritizing health and wellness for many generations.” The three owners utilized their research experience to scour the market to find just the right equipment around which to build their program. “I love the GoStride workouts because they give me the runner’s high and help me achieve my fitness goals,” says Jill. Jenny concludes “GoStride is the culmination of our mission to create a total body workout that all fitness levels can enjoy that is unique, challenging and, of course, fun!”
GoStride opened February 17, 2016. The cost is $30 for a single class and packages are also available which lower the per class cost–there is no membership requirement.
