SLT Is Debuting a Megaformer-Treadmill Class That Gives You Planks With a Side of Sprinting
SLT Tread, which will open in New York City in January, 2020, combines the slow cardio benefits of a megaformer workout with heart-spiking sprints, the motto being: "tread fast, tone slow." And so, in what truly sounds like the most-challenging workout of all time, you'll spend 25 minutes working your muscles to exhaustion on the megaformer, followed by 25 minutes doing high intensity intervals on the treadmill. "While the SLT workout on its own is the perfect combination of strength training, low-impact cardio, and Pilates, we often see clients interspersing their SLT workouts with high-impact cardio workouts such as running and cycling," says SLT founder Amanda Freeman.
When most people think about "cardio," their minds usually go to fast, sweaty workouts like running or spinning. But megaformer workouts, like the ones you've traditionally gotten at SLT, offer a different kind of cardio in which the slower you go the higher your heart rate spikes. With SLT Tread, you get the best of both all at the same time. "SLT Tread combines both slow and fast cardio into one all-encompassing, full-body workout," says Freeman. "You get the targeted muscle-toning of SLT combined with the endorphin-boosting powers of running." The result? A workout that puts every single muscle in your body to the test and will help you develop long, lean muscle in the process. In case there was any question, it will definitely leave you sweating.
SLT Tread's first location will be located in The James Hotel (hello, wellness travel), and with only 20 spots on the roster, we have no doubt classes will fill up fast.
Here's what happened when three Well+Good fitness editors tried three months worth of SLT. Plus, the *other* new megaformer workout people can't stop talking about.
