TRIB3 Manchester Deansgate
This boutique, class-based gym next to the hip Yotel hotel is part of a small but growing franchise of TRIB3 studios based mainly in the UK and Spain.
They’re best known for their signature TRIB3 Workouts which run about four times a day at the Deansgate studio. Split into three sections; treadmill, resistance training, and air bikes, they can burn up to a thousand calories if you work hard. And you’ll know how hard you’re working thanks to heart-rate monitors that beam your stats onto a big screen.
This kind of class isn’t for everyone. If you don’t like loud music, a dark studio, and an instructor who communicates with you through a headset, try somewhere else. It’s an intense setting for an intense workout and while some people thrive on the TRIB3 atmosphere, others will want to run and hide.
Once out of the studio, it’s all very friendly and pleasant. There’s a shake bar, fluffy towels, and some of the best-looking changing rooms in the city. (They’re unisex but with spacious, lockable shower cubicles for privacy.)
If you’re a HIIT addict and burning calories is a big part of why you workout, head here and you won’t be disappointed.
