Your First Class: What You’ll Experience

  • 1


    We start each 45 minute class with a workout that changes daily. We utilize both HIIT and functional cross-training to guarantee to get your heart up. We curate & customize these workouts each week to keep things fun & fresh, but most importantly, effective.

  • 2-1


    Part 2 of our workout, The Gauntlet, offers an electrifying kickboxing experience with new techniques daily across 8 dynamic towers, all set to motivational music. Guided by our HIIT timer, each session challenges you, boosts your heart rate, and ensures a feeling of achievement.

  • 3


    Completing your session with a cool-down and stretch is just as crucial as the workout itself. Your trainer dedicates a few minutes at the class's end to guide you through a relaxing cool-off, provide beneficial stretches, and share valuable tips and techniques for your at-home recovery.

Also known as G Express, our compact 32-minute workouts perfectly fit into your busy lifestyle, allowing you to get the most out of your exercise to achieve the best possible results. With a full-body workout from cross-training to our Gauntlet round, we get your heart pumping & your body sweating for peak training in only 32 minutes.

45-Minute Workout

Welcome to The Gauntlet! Our signature 45 minute group class combines HIIT and functional training alongside a thrilling kickboxing circuit. You'll enjoy nonstop music, blue lighting and various combinations of Kickboxing techniques. Get ready for a heart-pumping, high energy sweat session.

I’ve always been active but never had a proper workout routine, and I was craving one. I slid into the Gauntlet DMs on a whim and was in the 6 am class two days later. I loved the people, the workout, and the energy from the beginning. And now, one year later, I have my morning workout routine and feel stronger and healthier. I’m thankful for the investment Gauntlet makes in us to help us be our best, and I can’t wait to see what the next year has in store!

PS If you ever hear the country playlist on at the G-you can thank me later.

I started coming to Gauntlet last fall after one of my best friends told me I needed to try it because she thought I would love it. She was right! The community at Gauntlet is so inviting and fun, and the workouts have made me much stronger! I love how encouraging all of the trainers are, which has helped me to reach some goals I never thought I could hit! I have also experienced accountability with nutrition, which has helped me to learn tips and tricks on how to plan out my days, and manage my protein intake, all while not restricting myself to some of the things I love most! Gauntlet puts a huge smile on my face every day, and I truly cannot thank Paul and the Gauntlet family enough for all they have helped me accomplish!

I love gauntlet. It's a fast paced tough class that makes you feel good about who you are at any place in your fitness journey. Wasn't a big gym guy but came in here and felt right at home.

I didn’t ever think I would enjoy working out so much until I started coming to Gauntlet. The trainers are so supportive and truthfully push you to do your best. Gauntlet is so unique, there is nothing else like it. The community is so well connected. You feel so comfortable and aren’t ever afraid of being judged. I have grown so much ever since I came to Gauntlet and it has been such a positive thing in my life.

It’s high-energy fun! After being away from a regular workout routine for far too long, I’m so glad I found the Gauntlet! Each workout is different and never boring. Trainers are caring and encouraging. Classes provide an enjoyable environment to sweat, punch and kick within a supportive community. Every workout I leave feeling stronger than when I walked in that day.

So many places in Homewood for fitness. So few with the energy passion patience and family of GAUNTLET. High energy-low impact. Best for my age to avoid injuries.
