Frequently Asked Questions

I'm pretty new to exercising, are all the classes okay for me?
HFF trainers instruct beginners alongside long-time practitioners in nearly every class. Class choice is mostly a matter of personal preference. If you are just getting back into exercise, try our low impact Korper-Stretch class that is a total body stretch, a Slow Hatha flow yoga class, or Beginner Yoga. Our instructors are trained to help all levels, so just let them know if you have a question or need a modification.
Do you provide mats, showers, baths, changing areas and/or towels?
We provide rental mats and towels for $1 in case you forget yours. For more details about other provisions for each studio, see locations.
Do I need a reservation to drop in for a class?
Drop in whenever you like! Most HFF studios accommodate more attendees than typically attend each class so reservations are not generally needed. Just show up 10-30 minutes early, and we will assist you. You can sign yourself in for class in the lobby, from your mobile device or from your computer.

What is the story behind Hot Feet? Why did you name it Hot Feet?
Hot Feet depicts movement, activity and a sense of urgency which is important in a world that seems to be spiraling a bit out of control with regards to our health. But, in reality, it is just a fun name!

Is it really hot in the studio?
HFF studios are warm, not hot. Hot gyms are typically over 100 degrees which exceeds normal body temperature. Hot Feet studios are generally 85 - 95 degrees and we also host classes that are ambient temp. Due to amazing engineering designs of our ventilation systems, we use outside air to keep the studios fresh. We also enjoy using essential oils to freshen up our studios.
What can I expect in a class?
Each class is instructor lead. You will be greeted by a friendly instructor or an HFF Ambassador. You will need to check in at the studio if you have not already checked in for the class. You may pick a spot anywhere in the studio and you may come up to 30 minutes prior to the class start time. Coming early is nice especially for yoga classes as it extends the soothing mental therapy of the experience. Cleaning solution (essential oils+water) along with cleaning towels are available for your use in the studio.
What if I cannot keep up with the class?
Who cares! Go at your own pace. You may rest at any time or exit the studio if needed. Always go at the pace and level that works for you. You know your body, so listen to it. The heat does take getting used to, but you will get used to it and enjoy it! It is like a warm sunny day, and the sweat you will have helps to release toxins, make your muscles more elastic, and aid you in burning additional calories.
What do I need to bring with me?
It is best to wear comfortable clothing. You will want to bring water which is also available in the lobby. Most people use a yoga mat for all HFF class styles. Having a sweat towel is also handy. Most of all, plan to enjoy yourself! Please do bring all your tension and stress and plan to release it into the heat as soon as you begin.
How did you determine the class mix and types?
The class mix at Hot Feet studios varies slightly with each studio. We do that to allow each studio to be optimized for the community that they serve. We offer four types of regular classes. Those classes include:
  • X21 Workout
  • Korper-Stretch
  • BarreTwist
  • Yoga Styles (many different styles)
Classes at Hot Feet are very subjective to the instructor that is teaching the class and the community where the studio is located. We encourage the trainers to own their classes and to make them their own within the general framework of the HFF brand. If you are looking for other class types such as dance, HIIT, Pilates, Zumba or others then you will be happy to find that hints and influences from all of these and more make up the classes we offer at Hot Feet.

Throughout the year, we offer workshops that feature other emphases.
Can I just show up?
It is best that you create an account at HotFeetFitness.com prior to coming to the studio for a class. You may check in on your mobile device, computer or in studio for a class. You may also call our support team or come to a studio for assistance in setting up an account. Just know that our trainers are generally focused on greeting and preparing for the upcoming class so they may not be as attentive to assisting with a new account set up until after a class has completed.
Do your classes support meditation?
Since prayer and meditation are a choice, any HFF class could be a personal and spiritual time. As a rule, however, HFF is not a spiritual place at all. We have removed the weird from caring for yourself! We do host mediation support group classes that do have a spiritual element. Meditation has been shown to have significant health benefits. We even offer a support group membership which is for those that want to attend only meditation classes. All other membership levels may also attend these classes.
Are the classes spiritual?
HFF Yoga is not a religious experience unless, in your mind, you choose to make it one. HFF is a place to get a push to exercise of your mind, your body and your will. You will be stretched and challenged and you will surprise yourself with your results. HFF is a great place to think for sure but do not be intimidated by what you will experience. Some instructors play relaxing instrumental music while others prefer a quiet room. We do not hum or chant as a group at HFF. Some people prefer to close their eyes as they think, stretch and test their will. Others remain alert with eyes open. It is ok to pray silently on your own but the experience is not intended to be spiritual in nature anymore so than any other activity in our lives.
