#happylife: Getting fit and heart-healthy at one of Spokane’s newest gyms, Empire Fitness

Staying active as the temperatures get cooler can get difficult, so here is an option where you can get your workout in and stay warm.

Empire Fitness is one of Spokane’s newest gyms located in Logan Neighborhood, near Gonzaga University.

The fitness center offers a range of classes from yoga, to running club. Treadmill classes will also be added soon to their schedules. During the summer, the gym offers rooftop yoga.

Empire’s signature workout, is known as “EMP.” This is a one-hour, high-intensity strength and conditioning workout. The workout changes each day. These classes typically involve free weights, TRX, or even ski erg machines.

Beyond the gym, they also offer childcare.

They’ve partnered with Wellness Tree to open an in-house juice bar, which is expected to open in January 2020. Wellness Tree is a health bar in Spokane’s Perry District, serving smoothies and smoothie bowls, as well as coffee and teas.

If you’re interested in trying out Empire, they do offer your first class for free, so you can try it out before spending money.

The gym has a special offer going for Gonzaga’s Fall Family Weekend. If you’re a Gonzaga student, you and your family can take any of Empire’s classes for free during Fall Family Weekend. They’re also holding Wellness Weekend happening Saturday, where you can get massages, and get coffee and treats at Forza.
