305 Fitness is like Zumba on sexy, sweaty steroids. There’s a flirty swag that’s incorporated into all the movements, which is prevalent from the second the live DJ drops a beat. The bass is bumping, the instructor gets the hype in the room to a level 10, while colored lights shine through the dimly lit room to you get moving. Think of the opening number to a Beyonce concert…but you’re Beyonce!

RUNDOWN

WORKOUT

From the minute class begins you’re workin’ it and won’t stop until the cool down in the last minutes of class. The warm-up is followed by a series of themed choreo sections like Dance Hall and Hip-Hop. The movements are danceable squats, jumps, arm work and a whole lotta shakin’ whatcha momma gave ya. You WANT to sweat–like literally drip puddles! Following the dance moves there’s some partner work, aka two lines of people facing each other and engaging in some good ol’ friendly competition. The result? Smiles and motivational ‘YASS GET IT!’ chants. Following partner work were some basic abs and squats.

INSTRUCTOR

Sylver, or Silver as he introduces himself, brought out smiles across the room. This man got us all jumping around like we were hitting the Miami club scene on a Monday night. He successfully created a zero judgement zone while doing almost the entire class alongside us, creating a team feeling. We were all in it together. There was a lot of chants of “Woo!” and “Yes!”  from Sylvester throughout class that helped us shuffle faster, squat lower and body roll like we were in an R. Kelly music video. Class flew by as Sylvester masked all the tough ab, leg, arm and booty work with amazing dance moves and contagious charisma.

SPACE

305 Fitness takes place at BSC Lab (formerly BFX Studio). It’s a nice change of pace to not wait in line to shower, take our time spreading out in the locker room and drying our hair without ten girls breathing down our necks. Space is nice, we forgot what if felt like.

The main entrance on Boylston Street leads you to the front desk and a small retail area with branded workout gear. The fitness classes, spin studio, personal training area, and locker rooms are all located downstairs … underground. None of the rooms are huge but they do make good use of the space. There is even a “social bar” with magazines and computers in case you need to catch up on your celebrity gossip before class. The locker rooms are spacious and include showers, toilets, lockers, free products, and towel service just like many of the other newer gyms in the area.
