Boutique Fitness Concept Launches New Endurance Program for Runners and Emerging Running Fanatics

Washington, DC – Runners, are you ready to get your sweat on? SweatBox, an original boutique fitness concept designed to improve cardiovascular
endurance while building lean muscle mass and improving flexibility, unveiled today a new class dedicated for runners. SweatBox for Runners is a 75-minute class designed for those who want to increase their strength endurance so they are able to run farther, faster and longer. Beginning February 18, SweatBox for Runners will be offered every Sunday at 12:30 p.m. Participants can expect longer, steady bike rides to maximize heart rates for longer periods of time. Additionally, the program’s
strength work focuses on medium weight loads for longer working periods, which allows participants to increase their strength endurance so they can
run farther, faster distances. “We are so excited to introduce this new class at SweatBox,” says Isiah Muñoz, SweatBox instructor and SweatBox Co-Founder. “As a former professional soccer player and trainer, I understand what it takes to compete and thrive in endurance events, as well as how to train others to do so. We’re so glad to offer a program that improves the strength endurance of all runners – no matter how often they run.”

SweatBox is also offering introductory packages to help beginners find their stride. New members can purchase a two-week unlimited session package for just $34.

About SweatBox
SweatBox is the most efficient and effective way to improve cardiovascular endurance while building lean muscle mass and improving flexibility. The program combines aerobic and anaerobic intervals to achieve optimal performance levels within a 50-minute training period.  The SweatBox training method originated in the scientific principles of Heart Rate Training, resulting in a unique workout experience based on the individual metrics of the user.  SweatBox utilizes individual Heart Rate and Beats Per Minute (BPM) targets to deliver personalized training with quantifiable results and trackable performance metrics. SweatBox alternates between powerful blasts of cardio and strength exercises with periods of active recovery to obtain a targeted percentage of your maximum heart rate (generally ranging from 60-95 percent).  It is this foundation that allows the body to build muscle while burning calories and increasing aerobic capacity.  With a limited class size, each participant receives the individual instruction needed for a technically superior workout, while maximizing gains and minimizing risk of injury.

SweatBox uses the advanced technology of MYZONE heart rate monitors to upload baseline metrics and monitor every second of the workout, marking the first time anyone has combined Matrix IC7 Coach by Color with MYZONE in one studio.
