It’s official, the newest addition to Exhale’s Core Fusion family has arrived to Miami and I couldn’t be giddier (and sorer!). Core Fusion Extreme a.k.a CFX officially debuts today at the Downtown Miami location. Extreme is an understatement because this class will have you move through power stations consisting of high intensity stations that will shake your badunk-ka-dunk right into shape. Each station incorporates heavy hand weights, a plyo box, TRX suspension training, cardio explosions and intense core work.
I was lucky to meet Bergen Wheeler, CFX Creator, and probably one of the most vivacious people I’ve met to date! Bergen says that CFX is different from other high intensity interval trainings because the focus is on form versus the amount of reps. This helps to make sure your body is properly aligned to avoid injuries. Do them right and your booty will look mighty fine after a few classes.
Each class starts with a cardio warm up series before moving to the stations. Bergen (or Julie, or Alexandra) will run through the station exercises.
Each station consists of two exercises. You’ll perform the each exercise for 40 seconds twice, with a break in between. CFX consists of two rounds at each station – don’t be fooled 40 seconds sounds like a short amount of time, but you will quickly feel the burn! After the second round there is an active recovery between each exercise
My favorite part about the class is the variation. Each class is different and Bergen has created a monthly plan specific for the Downtown Miami location which focuses on different exercises. I also love the fast paced environment – the class zips by, but the results last!
Make sure you shop for some cute kicks too! Sneakers are required for this class – and I’m always looking for a reason to shop. My favorite are the Nike Free line. These are a running shoe, but they are super light weight, which makes it eas
y(ier) to jump on the plyo box. Plus, the bright colors are sure to garner lots of compliments. Whoop!
Bergen is one of the nations most sought after fitness instructors, and she has brought the heat to Miami with her CFX class. Make sure you visit Exhale tonight for a CFX class with Bergen or sweat with the fabulous Miami teachers like Julie and Alexandra the rest of the year. The classes will be complimentary for non-members for only 7 days so make sure you secure your spot because they fill up fast!
