Take the community and energy of a spin class and replace the bikes with ellipticals, and you’ve basically got the idea for elliptica studios, the country’s first elliptical-based boutique fitness studio.

Elliptica studios’ main goal with their classes is fun, so each class is scored by a pumping soundtrack that keeps participants stepping to the beat. As they step, fitness-seekers are getting a low-impact, total-body cardio workout that burns up to 30% more calories than an average spin class.
