Owner Ellen Park is a fitness enthusiast and fell in love with Define’s mission and when she could not find anything similar in the area, she decided to bring it here herself. She was especially drawn to the holistic fitness approach, broad training and the fact that a key component of Define is to educate clients while they train. Located in Allendale, this gorgeous, tranquil space is clean and chic without being pretentious. There is loads of FREE parking and is conveniently located to Starbucks, a pet store, food store and restaurants. I am all about the perks and Define has got them. You can rent or buy cycle shoes, purchase their clothing and they have their own line of teas, energy bites and more.

Lastly, what impressed me most as a trainer and instructor, myself, is the very extensive training all their instructors must complete. Every type of class has its own specific training from equipment use, to music, choreography, modifications and more. All instructors are trained in anatomy, which is key for any good instructor to be able to modify movements and work with varying abilities.

Group classes:

Define Revolution – This is not your typical spin class! It’s more like a party on a bike.

Talk about multitasking- get your cardio, strength training and core all in one workout – piqued your curiosity? Go try!

Define Barre Body – This combines Pilates, yoga, and ballet movements in a continuous flow.

Define Yoga – Restoratative classes to lengthen the muscles, focus on breathing and balance the mind

Define hammock – Spend some healing time in your own cocoon that assists you with inversions, helps you to relax and stretch while decompressing the spine. This class is a MUST! I enjoyed it so much and felt wonderful afterward.
