The latest newcomer to the fitness scene (opening today) is 305 Fitness. Located in Kenmore Square, this underground cardio-inspired dance party is the first of its kind to Boston (other locations include New York, Los Angeles and Washington, DC). The gym has inspiring quotes that line the walls, including a “you look great” mirror that lights up in the shower. As for the 55-minute class itself, think cardio workouts that infuse dance moves, sports drills and high intensity interval training for a full body workout. The expert behind the lighting system has designed sets for Mary J. Blige, The Roots, John Legend, Jessie J, Moby, Busta Rhymes, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Diana Ross, Flo’Rida and John Mayer. Did we also mention each class features a live DJ?
