The Axle Workout is a full body strength and conditioning program that is designed with a special emphasis on dynamic core exercises that are unique to the Axle training bar. Given the ultra light (<10lb) nature of the bar, it allows for a variety of movements catered to every skill level.
The philosophy behind the class is to pair foundational strength exercises with rolling core training exercises to minimize rest time between sets and create a greater metabolic effect for participants. The class also incorporates tempo training based to the beat of the music during sets.
Andrew Page is a strength and conditioning coach based in NYC who originally conceived the idea for the Axle training bar while training Olympic Athletes. Anuj Patel is a healthcare professional with an engineer's mind who helped source, design, and manufacture the training tool. They share the inspiration of improving human movement across all populations.
The Axle Workout is offered out of Clay Health Club & Spa's indoor studios and outdoor roof deck, located in Union Square. The Axle Workout will expand to three more locations by fall 2016 and will continue to grow throughout NYC.
Clay Health Club & Spa is a premier luxury health and fitness space. It offers an array of amenities that include: showers, sauna, spa, steam, indoor and outdoor lounge area, fresh juice bar and cafe, towel service, and locker service.
Axle Workout apparel is currently private label with eventual plans to partner with leading brands.
This method is always a full-body and core-centric training program. We offer three tiers of classes with the entry level focusing more on core strength and balance, mid level building on the first tier and they are introducing more athletic-based movements, and high-intensity classes with advanced classes placing emphasis on metabolic training.
