Where to get your sweat on in AVL
“I’ve got 99 problems and they’re all my sore muscles.”
Let’s be real here, when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle there are several factors you must consider –– eating a balanced diet, drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep, lowering stress levels, and exercising which (you guessed it)… is pretty crucial to the body.
While there are many methods of exercise (from running to weight lifting to pilates) the biggest question often faced is “where do I go to get my sweat on, and how do I decide where to go?” Asheville is loaded with workout options, so it’s best to find a studio that suits your personality, goals + lifestyle.
Boutique gyms have been making their debut in the fitness spotlight in recent years, especially in health-focused Asheville. The (generally) smaller studios that specialize in only a few fitness areas have a reputation of catering to their clientele + making the sometimes dreaded trip to the gym less intimidating (imagine one hour in a room of 5+ people who are supporting one another all while having an instructor individually guide them through a workout).
Most boutique gyms have a schedule similar to a yoga studio where each week there are 1-12 daily classes, each with a unique instructor, and guided workout flow. Most of these classes are an hour long and cost about $20 per class (budget-friendly packages are usually offered).
So look no further, local Ashevillians. Here are 13 boutique fitness studios that cater to the individual where you can sweat your mountain-loving heart out, a.k.a. your guide to unique gyms – sorry, LA Fitness.
