8 Springs Studio to open in early May

Studio will offer Megaformer workout classes

A new fitness experience is making its way to Hudson County as 8 Springs Studio prepares to open its doors at the Cast Iron Collection, the new industrial-inspired mixed-use community rising on the border of Hoboken and Jersey City.
Scheduled to debut in early May, the one-of-a-kind health club will be home to Jersey City’s only Megaformer training method.
The Megaformer workout offers a transformative fitness technique combining, cardio, strength, endurance, flexibility, core conditioning and balance in an intensity focused 40-minute class. The core of the Megaformer is controlled by the resistance of eight springs. This control is what allows for the vibrant movements of the Megaformer and how the name 8 Springs Studio came to life.
The new 2,600 square-foot facility will feature a 10-machine Megaformer room, a separate yoga room, TRX suspension systems and locker facilities.
Owners Li Ng and Dani Rubin conceptualized and branded 8 Springs Studio as a way to incorporate a unique boutique fitness destination into the flavor of Jersey City’s urban landscape. In addition to exercise classes, the facility is expecting to host neighborhood-centric events and plans to incorporate the work of local Jersey City artists in its interior décor.
“Up to now, fitness enthusiasts in Hudson County interested in Megaformer would have to travel to New York City or New Jersey’s suburbs,” says Ms. Ng. “8 Springs Studio will not only provide easy access to a new and innovative exercise option right in their backyard, but also make them feel at home by embracing local culture and history. The Cast Iron Collection was the ideal community to introduce Megaformer and join the exciting and evolving Jersey City scene.”
The Cast Iron Collection is spearheading the creation of SoHo West (South of Hoboken, West of New York City), a vibrant new neighborhood of rental homes, local shops and services and public open spaces.
Designed to accommodate participants of all ages, the Megaformer routine is a high-intensity, low impact workout that focuses on quick and dramatic improvements in strength, flexibility and endurance by working multiple muscles groups at once. Classes at 8 Springs Studio can be purchased individually or as a package.
Ms. Rubin said, “We’ll also be offering a full schedule of mat Pilates, Yoga, fusion classes, and TRX training to provide clients with a wide range of exercise options.”
