HotWorx in Burlington, NJ
What is the Hotworx?
Hotworx is an innovative new fitness program based on the fusion of infrared heat and isometrics. The original HWX Hot Iso Workout combines the benefits of infrared sauna therapy and 14 isometric body postures in a sequence to give you the perfect 30-minute workout. HWX customers love the 30-minute workout as opposed to the traditional 60 or 90-minute hot yoga routine. Customers achieve even better results in 30-minutes of HWX due to the use of infrared heat and a temperature of 120-125 Fahrenheit. Typical hot yoga programs heat the studio with traditional HVAC systems or with traditional space heaters that merely heat the air in the room. This traditional type of heat makes the air harder to breath. Infrared heat is much more comfortable and more readily absorbed by the body. Infrared heat waves penetrate the body rather than simply heating up air. The infrared heat environment is a more natural way to heat the body and to cause sweat for detoxification. Infrared enables a more efficient hot exercise method.
As the infrared heat penetrates your body causing sweat, the HWX isometric postures further accelerate the removal of toxins from your internal organs through muscle contraction. The program also provides for increases in strength, cardio and flexibility. Of course, the benefits of infrared sauna therapy are well documented. These include pain relief and accelerated workout recovery, stronger immune system, blood pressure reduction, wound healing, cellular health, skin purification, improved circulation, appearance of cellulite reduction and collagen repair. The benefits of isometrics are also well known and they include increased blood flow, muscle and strength gains, fat burning, bone strengthening, increased metabolism, weight loss and lowered cholesterol. Both infrared exposure and isometrics provide for great cardiovascular improvements. With a regular weekly practice of Hotworx, you will see a much improved sleep pattern as well. The combined benefits of the HWX program make for the most effective 30-minute stress management program in the world today!HWX Workouts
There are four different types of workouts currently within the suite of HWX videos. These include the original Hot ISO (14 posture total body workout) and Hot Zen (meditation). We have recently added Hot Buns (30-min. glute workout) and Hot Roll (30-min. foam roller total body deep tissue massage). All HWX workouts are approximately 30-minutes and are practiced within the HWX infrared sauna at a Fahrenheit temperature of 120-125 degrees. All four of these videos promote detoxification through infrared heat penetration. Hot ISO and Hot Buns promotes detox even further through the constriction of muscles and increased blood flow from isometrics.
Hot ISO: This is the original 14 posture Isometric/Infrared fusion workout from Hotworx. This workout consists of three phases, the Launch Phase, the Flight Phase and the Landing Phase. Hot ISO is an incredible addition to polish off a good weight training routine or any training program. It can be used by athletes for workout recovery and to promote balance, flexibility and metabolism. The average fitness enthusiast will find Hot ISO amazing for toning up and burning calories. The cool thing about Hot ISO for any level of training is the cardio workout that you will experience without even knowing it. In no time your heart rate is up to 85% of max. Because of the flow of the zero impact postures, there is no boredom. As a result, there’s hardly ever a thought of the cardio aspect of the workout!
Hot Zen: This video provides very relaxing scenes from nature such as waves at sunset on a beautiful beach. There is a very alluring and calming music bed with the nature scenes. Customers are encouraged to experience this session as they see fit for relaxation and meditation.
Hot Buns: This is a new Hotworx video. This isometric workout is focused on the glutes! Of course, there will also be a lot of core work and detox sweating involved as customers move through the postures. This workout is very intense. It will get your butt in shape for sure.
Hot Roll: This is a new Hotworx video. Hot Roll was created to give customers the experience of a full body 30 minute deep tissue massage using a foam roller led by the virtual instructor. This is the first video of it’s kind for self-myofascial release. It is structured to allow for a total body massage and lets you find and release your trigger points getting rid of knots and muscle tension. This session is one of the best ways to accelerate workout recovery. When you add 120-125 degrees of infrared heat to the session the recovery process is enhanced even more.

Great customer experience
I have enjoyed going to Optimal. The staff and many of it's members are welcoming. They offer a variety of classes and their personal trainers are cool to work with as well.
My Son gave me a birthday gift for 30 days to Optimal
My son was a member of Optimal for years and kept asking me to try it. I didn't know what to expect and was hesitant. So, one day my son took me with him, showed me around and introduced me to the management. Well, that was three years ago and I have been a member since. I lost over 35 lbs, feel great and don't like to miss a day at Optimal. I have my son to thank and Optimal.

Love this gym! So welcoming every time I come in! I work with a trainer Tara, and she has definitely made me enjoy working out again! After coming off a foot surgery, I explained my weaknesses and she worked around them, and also helped me push through them. She pushes me and motivates me to want to be a better, healthier person. I love coming here!
