Hey guys! It's Coach Jess, and I am bringing the HEAT WOW to ya this week!

Traveling for work or the holidays, or just can’t make it in to the gym? That’s cool - I’ve got a little bodyweight burner for you to take on with no equipment necessary. This high intensity workout will get your heart rate up while working the posterior and the core (because no one ever complained about having nice abs & glutes). TRUTH.

Warning: it may leave you walking a little wobbly.

:45 sec of each exercise followed by 5 burpees and :30 sec rest.

2-4 ROUNDS OF EACH: More advanced exercisers try 4 Rounds. Short on time? Do two Rounds of each! Don’t forget those 5 burpees before your rest. EARN IT! 


A) Exercise 1: Lateral Lunges with Oblique Twist (switch legs every round to get 1-2 rounds on each leg)

Exercise 2: Dorothy Jumping Squats

Need some tunes to go with it? I’ve curated a high-intensity playlist for you: Listen to it here.



HEAT Holiday Party Benefiting Lifeworks Austin! - Friday Dec. 8th

Tacky Sweater Holiday Party 2.jpg

It's time for the next HEAT holiday party benefiting Lifeworks Austin! This year's party is a tacky sweater themed event.

The event will take place at The North Door on Friday Dec. 8th. Be prepared for dancing, good times, and your normal good ole HEAT debauchery!

We are sponsoring two families for Christmas, and they have provided us with their Christmas wish lists. You can find the registry with their lists here. All gifts purchased for the families need to be wrapped and labeled which family member they are for. We will be collecting gifts at the studio Dec. 1st - 10th, and will be having a gift wrapping party on the 10th at 12:30pm. There will also be a shopping trip for the families taking place on Sunday the 10th before we wrap everything. If you are interested in joining for the shopping, shoot an email.

The silent auction that we'll have at the holiday party will be generating proceeds for Lifeworks Project Holiday Help. 100% of the funds raised will be going to this program. Our silent auction is shaping up quite nicely! The auction items include 3-day C3 guest passes for ACL, a photo shoot with Kara Marie Boudoir, a massage from Tony Senecal, a cut from Ryan at Path Salon, tickets to Zach Theatre, tickets to an ACL Live show, an Escape Game experience, and more!
