Since its first location opened in 2010, Cardio-Tone has become a destination for fitness junkies throughout the Bay Area. Offering everything from barre and circuit training to indoor cycling, yoga and TRX, each of these studios has a different lineup of challenging sweat sessions. At the original Noe Valley outpost, cycling, TRX and fusion classes provide the perfect balance between cardio conditioning and strength training. For toning barre, sultry burlesque and energetic dance, students can head to Soma. And for circuit training and yoga, there’s the 24th Street studio.
Owner Rachel Aram teaches at her three studios almost every day of the week, and closely vets instructors to ensure that they’re energetic, motivational and down-to-earth. “I only hire instructors who want to learn your name, your injuries and will celebrate your improvements,” Aram says. This supportive atmosphere—and attention to individual successes—is what sets Cardio-Tone apart from other boutique fitness studios. Says Aram, “Achieving a healthier body makes you live longer and enjoy each day more. That’s what we do, and we do it together.”
