A peek at elite new fitness mecca Life Time Greenway
Want to get fit fast? The science is, quite literally, shocking. Manduu Houston (3733 Westheimer Road), the latest fitness sensation in River Oaks, is the first FDA-cleared electrical muscle stimulation technology to offer an effective one-on-one workout in just 15 minutes. Slip into an electrode-laden suit for a low-impact customized routine, led by a personal trainer, while impulses flow through your muscles ($59 per session for 30 sessions). This year in Post Oak Central, TruFusion (1980 Post Oak Blvd.), a fitness franchise backed by former Yankees player Alex Rodriguez, debuts. Boasting a behemoth schedule of more than 240 classes a week, the studio offers hot Pilates, kettlebell, battle ropes, yoga, barre and more. Even A-Rod’s fiancee, sexy superstar Jennifer Lopez, has documented her TruFusion sweat sessions. The newly minted Life Time Greenway (1 City Club Drive) has everything you need in one stately package. As a Diamond Signature Club, the brand’s highest caliber, the 80,000-square-foot club houses an expansive aquatic center, rigorous group exercise classes, on-site nutrition consultations, LifeCafe and a full-service spa. Memberships start at $199 per month.
