Break a sweat at group fitness studio MADabolic in its first Georgia location this month
If you’re a group fitness junkie— or maybe you feel like it’s time to ditch the treadmill—Old Fourth Ward’s new fitness studio might be for you. Known for its small group classes that emphasize “work to rest”-style interval training, MADabolic Inc. opens in the second phase of Studioplex this month.
Launched in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 2011, MADabolic boasts locations across the Southeast, from Virginia to Texas, and now, Atlanta.
Those intimidated by heavy weights needn’t worry; you won’t find any barbells here. Instead, MADabolic clients will incorporate kettlebells, dumbbells, medballs and boxing into the 55-minute workout, which is comprised of three components: momentum, anaerobic and durability (MAD). Clients will also receive a full year of suggested workout schedules that cater to long-term improvement, rather than daily achievements.
“Our unique program can accommodate those who are newer to strength and conditioning, alongside competitive athletes,” says Atlanta studio owner Abby Closs, who previously worked in sales at Kind snacks. “We accomplish this by dividing each class into four levels of intensity based on natural ability and where you are in your athletic journey. Our trainers will demonstrate each movement at the beginning of class and then carefully guide you to choose the correct level of intensity for you.”
New members will receive a $10 for 10 days promotion to try MADabolic’s workouts, and the studio will host a series of open house events this month. Unlimited monthly packages and drop-in classes are available.
