Coupon
It's the perfect time to treat your Valentine to a well-deserved massage in the Wellness Suite. From now through February 28, take $10 off your purchase of $50 or more. This means you can get an hour massage for only $50 after the coupon!

Featured class: Step & Sweat

It's not your mother's step aerobics class. You'll burn calories, sculpt your muscles and boost your metabolism by stepping to upbeat, pulse-pounding music. 

We caught up with Mariam, who teaches Step & Sweat as well as Booty Boot Camp, to learn more about the class and group fitness at Binghamton University. Challenge yourself to take a group fitness class with Mariam or any of our talented instructors this month!

My name is Mariam Ama Traore and I am senior majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. 

I am from the Bronx and my parents are from Mali in West Africa.

Why should I try Step & Sweat?
You should try Step & Sweat if you want a full body workout. We are a class of supportive, smiling, and strong people who are constantly challenging our bodies.

Why do you like being a group fitness instructor?
I love motivating people to challenge themselves. Step & Sweat is not only a fun, vibrant class, it's a class that gives you a push to push yourself

Any tips for group fitness newbies?
Just get your foot through the door. Group fitness classes are for everyone, no matter how long you have worked out. One class can change your life!

 

     

Work hard, play hard.
