Sudor Taino Services

Sudor Taino Group Fitness is not just another exercise studio, it is a support network that is dedicated to people of all ages, shapes and sizes with an innovative approach to people, passion, energy, fitness and life in general. Its 4-element ideology offers a variety of unique formats which have been known to create a life changing experience. Sudor Taino prides itself on its classes, workshops, lectures, seminars and on being able to customize packages for small/large groups of youth, adults, seniors and other special populations.  It is our goal to enrich the lives of as many people as we can today, tomorrow and in the future.

Sudor Taino’s classes derive from finding what moves each individual person.  We take the time to develop classes that are outside the box and challenge everyone’s unique application of movement.  Our classes have minimal choreography and focus more on repetitive motion in combination with different defining exercise moves.

Innovation: Our classes are designed to empower everyone that hits our floor with classes that are created to give you the best workout possible. Where else can you find classes like Yogaloxing (combination of kickboxing and yoga), Hot Pilates (Pilates to the hottest music), Power Boxing (contact kickboxing with pads and powerful meditation), Dance and Box, Step and High Energy Cardio Kickboxing, Power Bar, Balling (exercise and weighted balls), Self Defense/Tactics, Tribal Bootcamp, Flying Discs and so much more!  As a commitment to keeping things fresh the line-up & content of classes change every 2-3 months!

Hard Core Workouts: Most of our sessions are designed to foster growth in the many different exercise genres that exist. Utilizing creative concepts that derive from the Tabata style and regimented circuit workouts that are proven to work, our workouts will push everyone to their limits. We have adhered our programming to the scientific data that proves that these types of workouts maximize your health and fitness benefits in minimal time.  As part of our commitment to keep our fitness classes energetic and fresh, we are known to conduct a variety of different bootcamps which include: body bar, body bands, kettle ball, cardio, weights, intervals, circuits, kickboxing, steppers, jump ropes, running, individual/partner/group bootcamp classes. These bootcamps challenge all levels in strength, power, agility and stamina while meeting our clients where they are. These bootcamp-style and circuit classes are both indoors and outdoors.

bcRejuvenation: Although we want you to maximize your time and get sweaty workouts in, we also believe in lubricating your muscles and calming the mind, body and soul.  Each weekly line up will contain some sort of rejuvenation classes that are inspired by yoga, pilates, meditation, breathing or stretching.  We believe in always helping you find balance in and out of the studio!

Versatility: The genres of music range from Tribal, Old School and new Hip Hop, Merengue, Salsa, Reggaeton, Rock, Top 40’s, Techno, Jazz, and more!  We are also the only facilitators of the THE GROOVE and GROOVE Kids in Connecticut.  These classes take the time to find what moves you which is extremely important to our personal growth and yours.  Remember, the way you move is reflective of the way you will live outside of the studio.  Come, unleash and find what moves you personally!

Specialty Classes: Some special classes are free to members and acts as a catalyst for new classes while others new members and networking while others bear a special charge due to the genre being outside of the studio scope.

Although it is true that many studios, gyms and facilities offer “cookie cutter workout regimens” meaning they use the same workout for all of their clients- it is also important to acknowledge that those programs work for those trainers and their clientele. However, at Sudor Taino we take pride and enjoy customizing workouts for each individual client.
