Our mission at Studio has always been to make fitness more accessible. Our belief is that you shouldn’t have to pay $4,000 for a piece of equipment or $35 a class to experience the world’s best instructors. Six months ago we started on this mission with our treadmill classes that have been experienced by over 50,000 members … but that’s not good enough. It still requires a gym membership, a piece of equipment, and being shackled to the indoors when you might want some fresh air. That’s why today, we’re announcing group running classes that you can take outside – it only requires a smart phone, running shoes, and a desire for a little adventure. Here’s how they work.
Outdoor classes will be categorized as “Universal” difficulty. What does universal mean? Whether you’re a beginner runner or advanced runner, these classes are for you. Instead of using specific speeds, we’ll be calling out five specific paces: walk, jog, run, sprint, and recovery.
We’ll be releasing at least 3 new outdoor runs per week, in addition to the treadmill runs you know and love. To get started, make sure you update your iOS app or smart treadmill to the latest version of Studio.
