It is the 8th of November, and I realized that my KFit subscription is about to expire in the next few days. So I looked through the app for a class I can join, and then I saw there is a 7pm aerial hoop class at Fit Express in Fairview. I’ve been to this studio before but for a different class– anti-gravity yoga, to be exact. Sadly, they do not offer it anymore. If you are subscribed to KFit, you can also try other classes like pole fitness and yoga.
The studio is located at Regalado Hive near FEU Hospital. Parking is available for free in the building as long as you have the ticket validated by the establishment. If you arrive early for your class, you can grab some snacks at McDonald’s or Starbucks across the street.
I joined the 7pm aerial hoops class taught by a friend. At first I thought I was the only student, but good thing a few more came in. There are 3 hoops and thick crash mats for students to use. What I liked about the studio is that it is spacious enough for 3 hoops to be used, and that the environment is similar to my home base at Pole Dolls Dance Studio.
However, I think there are few things I hope the studio will consider improving. For one, the beam where the hoops are placed is too low. Top bar tricks cannot be done as there is not enough space to fit your legs or lift yourself up. Spinning is also impossible. The movement created is forward and back instead of spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise. Another is the hoop itself– it is only wrapped with tape without any cushioning. From what I know, a hoop should at least be wrapped with a thin foam before it is wrapped with athletic tape (such as Mueller tape).
To get here via commute from Commonwealth area, you may take a bus or jeepney going to SM Fairview or Novaliches Bayan. Alight at the gasoline station (Caltex, beside Burger King) then cross to the side of Jollibee. There’s a tricycle terminal a few meters away from the main road. Tell the tricycle driver to take you to Regalado Hive. It is the building accros McDonald’s and FEU Hospital.
In summary, my rating for Fit Express are:
- Parking area: (don’t forget to have your ticket validated!)
Fit Express is located at Unit 301-303 Regalado Hive, Regalado Ave., West Fairview, Quezon City.
