30 minutes of pure work! That basically sums up X Fit Pro. Okay … Guess that’s all I have to say … Just kiddinggggg
So I recently signed up for ClassPass (if you are interested in signing up, shoot me a message with your email address and I will send you a link where you will get an extra $40 added to whichever package you sign up for) and bought 5 classes to try some new places. X Fit Pro was my first stop.
I had never heard of this place before, but it is literally right off of Kirby around West University, so it has a great location and really easy to get to. It is a tiny little gym, very similar to F45 Training, which I wrote a review on a few months ago. They are both within like a block or 2 of each other as well. Like I said, very similar. Anyways, I booked my session under the impression that it was a 30 minute group training class, but when I showed up, it was just me and Marcus, my trainer. So the facility was tiny and super similar to F45 Training, but the workout itself was basically a shorter version of Plex.
I started out with 5 minutes on the stairmaster, working on my booty gains 😉 then the real workout started. I did 4 sets of this …
- 10 medicine ball slams and squats
- Plank on one of those stability ball things for I think like a minute or so, alternating pulling in my knees one at a time holding each side for 10 seconds or so at a time
- Sled push across the gym… it was very heavy too… I felt like a turtle could have zoomed right past me and I was pushing as hard and fast as I could
- 12 push ups and mountain climbers on a bosu ball
- Sled pull back across the gym
- Sprint up a flight of stairs and walk down 2x
Repeat 4x. Last I did a 500 meters all out sprint on the rowing machine, 10 up/downs (basically burpees without the jump), 250 meters on the rowing machine, 10 up/downs then foam roller and stretch to finish off.
I was pretty good as far as stamina through the majority of the workout until that 500 meter row… I thought I was going to pass the f*** out at about 450 meters…but I pushed through and hit Marcus’ goal of 500 meters under 2:20.
Anyways, it was a great 30 minute, in and out kind of workout if you are short on time. They are open at like 5 AM and go until like 7 or 8. Every workout is a guided workout… very similar to Avenu Fitness actually, but harder. Marcus was a great trainer. He was very motivating but not pushy or mean. I thought for sure I would be doing most of the bosu ball push ups on my knees and even though I took a few short breaks, I only did like maybe 8 out of the 48 push ups on my knees.
