Sure, there are plenty of places to get your sweat on in Seattle. But there’s a new fitness studio coming to the city that’s about to make every other workout seem like a walk in the park.
We’re talking about Chicago-based Shred415 and, lucky for us, they're planning to expand to the Emerald City, opening their first area location in Denny Triangle.
The Shred415 concept was created back in 2011 when fitness-minded Chi-Town locals were inspired to open a gym where people of all athletic abilities could work out. After experiencing success in the Chicago area, the studio decided to franchise and now boasts tons of locations across multiple states.
And thanks to the ambitions of Seattle's Shred415 owners, Fadil and Alice, we’re blessed to have a (locally-owned) studio in our backyard.
True to its name, Shred415 organizes its workouts in four, 15-minute intervals that are equal parts strength training and cardio. You’ll start on either a treadmill or the floor and switch back and forth until your 60 minutes are up.
On the floor, you can expect everything from box jumps to burpees, with a few kettlebell moves thrown in. And when you’re crushing your quads on the treadmill, the instructor will call out speeds and inclines guaranteed to make you sweat.
It doesn’t matter if you’re flexing your muscles for the first time or you’re a seasoned veteran, though — they’re happy to modify the exercises and intervals to fit your fitness level. Between their insane HIIT workouts, polished studio, and supportive community, Shred415 is about to be your new favorite place to get your adrenaline pumping.
Once they open, you'll be able to find Shred415’s brand new space right on Minor Ave. in Denny Triangle, so be sure to keep an eye on their Instagram for updates. Word to the wise — there’s a Might-O Donuts across the street, and after this workout, you deserve a treat.
