“I JUST CAUGHT ON FIRE.” That was my Facebook status after taking my first PiYo Strength class at the new Baltimore BeachFIT in Harbor East. Like yoga on steroids, the fast-moving class combines sun salutations with squats (and other fitness moves) paired with high-tempo music for a fully choreographed, sweat-inducing workout. “PiYo is awesome for people who get bored in a regular yoga class,” says smiley co-owner/trainer Maggie Binkley, who remembers every student’s name during her classes, which also include Power Cycle, Turbo Kick and Surfset. A self-proclaimed yoga “hater,” I spent my first PiYo session trying not to topple over—or combust—but it was so FUN that I’ll be back soon. Bonus: If you need a breather after (or during!) class, just pop into the in-studio boutique, featuring cute workout wear and beachy keen accessories curated by co-owner Alison Schuch, who also owns Fells Point Surf Co. 1400 Aliceanna St.; 410-753-4354.
