A pair of fitness destinations is taking off in Rye Brook. They are Bikram Yoga, located at the Rye Ridge South Shopping Center, and the nearby SoulCycle.

Bikram Yoga offers its patrons an opportunity to learn about and execute Hot High-Intensity Interval Training.  

There are a variety of reasons people should do Hot High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Pilates. One of them is it is a compliment to any exercise. It helps with your core and posture to build long lean muscles and is low impact, according to Frannie Rochat. Rochat owns Bikram Yoga in Rye Brook and has 20 years’ experience practicing while teaching for 12.

Another reason people seem to like this exercise is they lose weight and get stronger, even after three 60 sessions you can see the difference.

Intimidation is one of the key factors that keep many from giving Hot HIIT Pilates a chance. The hardest thing for Bikram Yoga owners like Rochat is getting people in the door. Once they get in the door, though, they can expect a safe environment. This exercise is a direct shot of working your core.  It is great for your heart and lungs and can be a full body workout.

Hot HIIT Pilates is for everyone as long as you have discipline and the mental capacity needed.  

Its origins are three-years-old and began in the United States.

SoulCycle has self-proclaimed themselves as being revolutionary for indoor cycling and “has taken the fitness world by storm” according to its website. The location in Rye Brook has plenty of favorable reviews on Yelp.

“I absolutely love this place,” a review on Yelp began. “First of all the staff is very welcoming and friendly every single time I go in.”
