High intensity. Strength training. Hard-core cardio. When it comes to staying on top of your fitness game, it can be challenging to find a routine that incorporates all three. Lookin’ for a new spot that’ll help you trim and tone in the most effective way possible? Then we’ve got news for you.
Ramp ‘N’ Rize, a new boutique fitness studio, has opened its doors in Sewickley — and the newest local hotspot is owned by none other than Alba Tull. That’s right, folks. The former LA resident and current chair of the Tull Family Foundation (married to Thomas Tull, part owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers) is delivering a brand-new studio designed to transform the way you work out.
Ramp ‘N’ Rize is unlike any studio you’ve experienced. Driven by technology, the innovative TransformerPro and Power Tower machines provide data tracking and analytics that’ll help you monitor your results in real time. Tested by professional athletes, Ramp ‘N’ Rize is the only fitness studio to use this equipment in a group class setting — meaning you’ll get an exclusive, high-intensity workout without leaving the 412.
And leading the charge is celebrity fitness instructor Joy Johnson, who, along with the Tulls, relocated from LA to PGH to bring her high-performance method right to the Beaver St. studio. As head trainer, her expert approach and passion for wellness are already making a mark on Pittsburgh’s fitness scene. Plus, they added Steeler Ryan Shazier as a stakeholder of the new space, so we have a feeling these guys know a thing or two about bringing strength, conditioning, and endurance to your everyday fitness routine.
Choose between the incline-based RAMP40 or the vertical climbing-based RIZE30 classes to combine strength and cardio for the ultimate high-intensity, low-impact challenge. Controlled, resistance-based movements hit on endurance, core, flexibility, and balance to create a full-body experience that you just can’t get anywhere else. Drive it home with the help of heart-pumping music that’ll inspire you to push that much harder as you climb your way to the finish.
Sound like your kind of calorie burn? You’re in luck. Classes are officially in session, and you’re gonna wanna book your first one ASAP. Trust us: once you see what Ramp ‘N’ Rize is all about, your workout will never be the same.
