Hiitmate is a high-energy, low-impact circuit training gym, designed to effectively help you achieve your goals in a motivating and fun atmosphere.

From the creator of fitness spot Cardio Barre, the boutique-style studio "delivers a comprehensive, full-body, cardio and resistance workout that will burn massive calories in just 45 minutes," says the business on its website, with a state-of-the-art sound system and accountability partner (mate) to boot.

Classes last 45 minutes and are capped at 22 participants a session. Interested? A free introductory class is available for first-timers. (Check out the current class schedule here.)

Hiitmate currently holds five stars out of four reviews on Yelp, indicating good reviews.

Sam G., who reviewed the new spot on Sept. 1, wrote, "Aside from the aesthetics (beautifully modern) this gym is top notch. The class is only 45 minutes of hiit training with stations, which is amazing because you're in and out quick. But don't let the timing fool you, this class is no joke!"

And Yelper Amanda B. added, "The best hiit classes I have ever taken! The instructors are amazing and I love the class setting!"

Hiitmate is open from 6 a.m.-8 p.m. on Monday-Thursday, 6-11 a.m. on Friday, and 8-11 a.m. on weekends.
