A new exercise studio, Super Fly Fitness, will be opening Tuesday at Snake River Landing, offering free demo classes and opportunities to enroll.

Owner Alexandra Chapman said she plans to offer fitness classes that have never before been offered in eastern Idaho with a pay-as-you-play philosophy. Studio specialty fitness is an emerging market for clients that prefer the smaller gym experience and the ability to pay for only the classes they take. "I don't hold my customers to contracts, but would prefer to have clients pay as they go, only paying for what they use. I want people to come and discover something new they are going to love doing," she said.

Chapman's experience as a trainer dates back to 1998, when she certified with NETA to obtain her National Group Exercise Certification and began teaching at University of Idaho in Moscow. She has taught at several gyms in the Idaho Falls area, gaining additional certifications to broaden her skills. She said it was after she was hired by Eastern Idaho Technical College to start a Zumba program that she decided she wanted her own studio.

Snake River Landing, a master-planned development south of Pancheri Drive on the west bank of the river, immediately appealed to her.
"My studio may be 1,,550 square feet, but what makes my Super Fly surroundings so unique is the property which surrounds it, including miles of pathways for outdoor fitness activities," she said.

Super Fly Fitness will offer AntiGravity Yoga, a form of fitness in which participants use a silk hammock that attached to the ceiling to suspend their bodies and do zero compression inversions. Chapman has coupled AntiGravity with TRX, as the systems seemed to work well together and she enjoyed using the TRX system in personal training sessions.

Other classes include Kettle Bells, H.I.I.T. and Zumba. The complete class schedule and any new classes added may be viewed at www.superflyfitness.com along with more information about enrollment, the trainers and staff.

Free mini-classes will be offered next week from Tuesday through Friday. The official grand opening and ribbon cutting will be Jan. 31 at 4 p.m., with an open house until 7 p.m.
