“SweatBox, to us, is a community. It’s family,” said Katrena Faison, founder of SweatBox Baton Rouge. “We want to make sure that everybody that comes in here is loved and there’s no judgment. That’s why the lights are off,” she added with a chuckle.
The lights off club vibe is a common trend in modern fitness studios. What makes SweatBox’s atmosphere stand out is the splash of blue, green, and red spotlights dancing on the ceiling and walls alongside the members taking the classes.
“Nobody is judging you if you feel like you can’t dance, but what we’re here to tell you is that everybody can exercise,” said Faison.
Faison and her team set a goal to change the health for the people of Louisiana through fun workouts and nutritious drinks. SweatBox offers meal replacement smoothies and energizing teas, but it’s their cardio classes and boot camps that keep customers coming back for more.
SweatBox Baton Rouge choreographed an original heart-pumping, Halloween-themed workout for Get Fit Red Stick. “Ghost-bust-a-move” with the SweatBox team now on WAFB’s Get Fit Red Stick Facebook Group.
