New Neighbor: Precision Run

The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership is delighted to welcome Precision Run fitness studio, a method-driven treadmill class, to the district. Equinox, the global high-performance lifestyle leader, chose the Flatiron District to launch its first internal group fitness program into a stand-alone studio concept. 

"The Flatiron District is a bustling hub for innovation, specifically for fitness and wellness," says Director of Operations, James Gu."Equinox opened the first-ever Precision Run studio in the neighborhood to contribute to this ongoing innovation, offering a scientifically-backed running program for both runners and haters alike. Plus, our Equinox Flatiron club is right around the corner!" 

Precision Run was co-founded by Creative Director David Siik, who conceptualized a class that would optimize the variables of treadmill running, which include speed, incline, duration, and recovery, also known as the B.I.T.E. method. Precision Run has created an entirely new category of running, and it has inspired a new generation of first-time runners with its foundational approach to rapid progress and results. Precision Run is an indoor running experience on a mission to redefine how you think about treadmill running. 

  

Inside the studio at 12 West 21st Street, 34 propriety Woodway treadmills with Walnut hardwood and steel accents line the room from wall to wall. With technical features that enable a fully integrated user experience, Precision Run seeks to have the smartest and sleekest treadmill in the industry. As for the dashboard, it presents a smooth, user-friendly interval training screen that encourages every individual to find his or her "Perfect Personal Record". On the dashboard, runners can select a one-tap recovery button while the Smart Keys learn every new interval speed and auto-populates them onto runner's screens to that they always see their Last Speed. The goal is to revolutionize the way a treadmill changes pace from sprint to recovery by creating the fastest rate of deceleration through the Woodway treadmill. 

Additionally, the experiential element of the studio is not one to be forgotten. To further connect runners to the class and enhance performance, Precision Run creates a specific assortment of music that focuses and inspires runners and sensory lighting to coincide with the runner's force and heart rate. Breathe deep while you're in the studio to enjoy oxygen-enriched air to give your lungs a little kick. Precision Run's commitment to beautiful spaces extends to its sleek locker rooms that are stocked with Ursa Major products and equipped with lockers that can charge your phone. 

The Precision Run studio also offers a Hydro Bar equipped with performance and recovery enhancing blends and an open recovery lounge area to connect with the Precision Run community before and after class. The lounge is also fully stocked with Hyperice cooldown tools to assist in the post-run recovery. 

Precision Run is a studio, an interval training method, and a 50-minute class that engages intervals to balance speed, incline, duration, and recovery. Precision Run is tailored to each individual's level with the first 2-3 minutes of the class consisting of a self-led digital experience to find your Personal Record, the fastest speed you can maintain for 1 minute. All of the speeds in class will be based on this number, and the class includes a warmup, cool down, and recovery intervals of walking or jogging. 

Classes are available for purchase in quantities from 1 run to packages of 30, and an Equinox membership is not required. Classes are offered 7 days a week with class times and instructors vary throughout the week. Tread booking opens exactly 7 days prior to class. Check out the full schedule here.
