Now you can work out like Gabrielle Reece at 24 Hour Fitness


Gabby ReeceFormer professional volleyball player Gabrielle “Gabby” Reece has stayed busy since she stepped out of the sports spotlight in 2010, running a healthy lifestyle website with husband (and surfing legend) Laird Hamilton, modeling for magazines like Shape, and appearing on shows like The Biggest Loser and North Shore. And now, the statuesque blonde is adding another line to her already impressive resume: fitness trainer.

Reece just launched her very own HIIT workout class called HIGHX that will roll out in all of 24 Hour Fitness’ clubs this spring, making her one of the first pro athletes to parlay her extensive sports training into an actual workout that other people can do.

The workout, in partnership with fitness equipment brand Lifeline, is a 50-minute, high-intensity class where you rotate through training circuits using props like kettlebells, dumbbells, and plyo boxes. “I believe there are a lot of ways to skin the cat with fitness, and this is a great offering for people who are busy,” say Hawaii-based Reece. “You can do it once or three times a week, and it will be extremely beneficial to you.”

Of course, she’d say that, but Reece says she knows it works because she’s been training friends in a similar beta method for a few years now. “This came out of something I was doing for my community, and it was a lot of work, but was also extremely inspiring to me,” she says. “I like that it’s a natural extension of that, versus me sitting in a room trying to design a workout.”

It’ll likely now be inspiring to her many fans, who will jump into HIGHX in hopes of achieving her strong, lean physique (if not volleyball stardom). —Jamie McKillop
