What is the Value of PEAK?

To give everyone some background, PEAK is known as a boutique studio. There aren’t too many of these types of studios in Baltimore, so we thought we would provide a little insight into what that means for you, the member (or potential member)!

Traditional gyms and fitness studios have a broad focus, ranging from free weights to large group classes. While variety might be the spice of life, it doesn’t always result in you getting the most balanced workout possible. A boutique studio is a smaller fitness facility that specializes in one area. At PEAK, we focus on giving you a heart-pounding, balanced, and fun Interval Training workout. Because we specialize in Interval Training, we are REALLY good at it! So, what is Interval Training and how does it differ from High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and Crossfit?

HIIT classes usually consist of a cardio workout with limited equipment and little to no strength training. At PEAK, we have kettlebells, dumbbells, sandbags, treadmills, water rowers, and other equipment incorporated into an intense workout of both strength training AND cardio in a timed format, with short breaks built in, which is why we call it Interval Training. Our workouts change daily and are formulated to ensure a balanced workout, so for every PEAK session you attend, you know you are getting a complete, full-body workout!

Small, intense, specialized classes? You might think we’re another Crossfit. Nope! In fact, we are totally different! At most Crossfit facilities, you'll see a board listing others' times and weights for particular exercises or workouts. Our core values center around giving you a challenging, engaging, calorie-burning and strength-building workout, where the focus is on YOU, YOUR strength, and YOUR cardiovascular health, not how you compare to everyone else.

We loan every member a heart rate monitor to track his or her heart rate real-time in class. Real-time biofeedback is important to make sure you get the results you want! Everyone is able to track their heart rate throughout the training session. Plus, members receive a summary of their heart rate via email after each class. These summary statistics include average heart rate, max heart rate and total calories burned.

PEAK is more cost effective than small group training and Crossfit. We have multiple membership tiers, class packages and drop-in rates to fit your needs, including a special introductory membership rate for new clients. Small group training is often much more expensive than PEAK per session, and Crossfit memberships can cost you $10-$80 more per month. Sure, the box gyms may cost a little less per month, but at a box gym, you are an anonymous profit booster. At PEAK, you'll find a type of camaraderie that box gyms simply can't provide. We specialize in smaller class sizes, which enables us to give you personalized attention and a space that’s not too crowded. Plus, paying for a box gym membership you don’t use certainly isn't cost effective. PEAK prides itself on being a studio that you will want to stick to!
