Fitness has always been in her blood. And now Becky Brown is bringing her personal passion for movement to East Austin’s newest contemporary workout studio, E + E Fitness. E + E brings Austin’s best cardio kickboxing, bootcamps and personal training to a stunning, state-of-the-art workout space, nestled neatly at the base of the Alexan apartments on East 6th Street.
“Our goal is to create a community — both inside and outside the fitness studio — based upon a common love for movement, play and human connection,” Brown, owner of E + E Fitness, says.
Sleek, textured walls envelop a modern, check-in area, where members are lured into each of E + E’s three exercise rooms. Here they will find fitness newbies and fanatics experiencing the best workouts in town.
Today, it might mean 60 minutes of a full-body sculpting, strength-building bootcamp class. Tomorrow, it could be an assault on the day’s stresses in a battle against the heavy bag. Or perhaps it’s a one-on-one session geared toward your own personal goals with your favorite personal trainer. Whatever the tonic, the workout experience is guaranteed to be fresh, challenging and most importantly, fun.
“Our kickboxing room is equipped with 21 heavy bags and features Muay Thai-style kickboxing mixed with bodyweight movements that are sure to make you sweat,” Brown says. “These classes burn hard, incorporate explosive speed, footwork, strength and most of all, willpower. It’s just you and your bag for 60 minutes, pushing yourself to new, exhilarating places, mentally and physically.”
Brown has also forged an exclusive partnership with HEAT Bootcamp to incorporate their signature HIIT (high intensity interval training) into E + E’s class offerings. An Austin standout for more than a dozen years, HEAT will bring its unique combination of strength training, cardio, calisthenics and plyometrics — all set to a killer soundtrack — to keep members sweating, motivated and craving more. The bootcamp space will be equipped with dumbbells, medicine balls, pull-up bars and a “wall ball” area for a novel workout experience each and every time.
“All of the equipment at E + E was selected by experienced trainers with a rap for getting their clients results,” Brown says. “Whatever your fitness goals are, we have you covered and invite you and your friends to join the E + E Fitness community.”
To top it all off, E + E also features lush locker room amenities, including luxury showers and changing rooms.
For anyone interested in checking out E + E Fitness, the first workout is always free. And you can sign up online for class packages and monthly memberships now. E + E’s goal is to Elevate and Evolve community fitness by challenging its members to experiment and learn new things every time they step foot in the studio.
