Champaign, Ill. - Owner and trainer, Matt Rossbach, is here to get us moving today!
mLAB's group fitness classes utilize the unique FitGames format: participants are split into teams to complete exercises as part of group challenges and games.
For example, one recent Saturday FitGames Total Body class centered around pushing cars. Two teams of three members each attempted to finish a large number of exercises (150 pushups, 200 step-ups, etc.) and then pushing a car a distance of approximately 100 feet every time they completed an exercise. The team that completed the most car-pushing trips within 45 minutes won. There is usually no prize for winning, but members are motivated to work out harder when they are helping other members of a team, and they can focus on a goal or a game strategy instead of just the exercises in front of them.
mLAB Fitness has moved this year to a new location at 122 N First St, on the edge of downtown and midtown Champaign.
