Now Open in Reston: InForm Fitness

Inform FitnessReston has a new exercise option. InForm Fitness opened it doors at 1875 Campus Commons Dr. last week.

The Reston studio is an expansion of the Leesburg location owned by trainer Nicole Gustavson. The national company also has locations in New York, Colorado, California and New Jersey.

Inform, first established by a New York City trainer in 1999, says it is a different type of strength training workout, where participants work with a trainer to do a 20-minute workout that involves slow-motion repetition.

They call it “the Power of 10” because weights are lifted 10 seconds up and 10 seconds down.

Says InForm: “Twenty minutes, once a week is all you need to set into motion the chain reaction in the body to start building stronger muscles. Arthur Jones, the father of High Intensity Training (HIT), once said, ‘There is no such thing as a long, hard workout.’ In other words, the harder the workout the shorter it lasts.”

InForm also recommends several days between workouts.

To find out more or learn about rates and schedule a training session, call InForm at (703) 791-1717 or visit www.informfitness.com.

    What a shame. If you want to find out about rates, you have to fill out a form so they have all your information. I fail to see why they can’t just have a quote on the page that says one work-out costs $ and be done with it

      You could probably call or stop in. I don’t think you can do just one work out anyway. Like most training, it’s packages and/or memberships.

        You may want to do some research on the products you peddle. From their site, “Each training session is made by appointment and paid for on a per session basis. You can can pay for one session at a time,”

        • meh

          Also, it says “InForm Fitness requires no membership signup or long term contracts. ”

          So, ya – no packages or members. Is there a vetting process for your ads? Just curious

    • LakeNewportLady

      Pretty much every gym I’ve ever looked at doesn’t have pricing info online… They always want you in the door first because you are more likely to sign up. That being said I have had luck calling or emailing directly for the info.

        “They always want you in the door first because you are more likely to sign up”

        Partly or mainly due to the high pressure sale. I can understand the original poster’s complaints.

        • McLovin

          Bingo! Just tell me the rate so I can make an informed choice and not have to deal with high-pressured sales where telling someone no results in verbal harassment

          Hi Joe, I too have fallen prey to the sales tactics associated with conventional gyms. It is a large part of InForm’s motivation to not have memberships, and to not employ sales staff. Ours is a protocol reliant on education, professionalism, and experience in physical conditioning – not sales. At InForm Fitness, you don’t meet a sales rep, you meet a trainer. This trainer will likely be the same person who is responsible for your training and progress, should you decide to take part. But at no time do we have any interest in “selling” an interested party on something that they won’t use and benefit from.

      Hello. My name is Nicole Gustavson. I am the Owner of InForm Fitness Leesburg and Reston. About rates….we do not sell memberships. The cost will be based on individual, one-on-one sessions and the typical recommendation is one session per week. Ideally, we like to have new Clients start with twice a week as we build both skill level and intensity, but it’s not necessary. Individual sessions cost $80 each, but are most commonly sold in packages of 6, 12 and 24 at discounted prices. For example, a package of 24, which is typically a 6 month commitment, reduces the individual session cost to $61. We also offer Veteran discounts. I hope this helps. We do not post our rates online, as each location has different rates, such as between NYC and VA. Sorry to hear of your frustration.

      • Karen Goff

        Thanks, Nicole.

      • Whaaaaaaaaaat?

        $80 for a single 20 minute session?

  • Joshua Cagney

    Actually Boaty, the truth is that rates vary by location and operational costs. If you call our office I’m certain someone would be happy to answer any questions that you might have, and I’m equally certain that no commitment would be required on your part. Good luck.
