KRAVE FITNESS NUTRITION & WELLNESS
KRAVE fitness opened in 2012 as the hottest group exercise studio around. Since COVID, our studio has taken a new path and our focus has changed to a more personalized approach for the individual looking to better their health. We offer a small number of small group classes such as barre, yoga, BUTI, mommy me and more which are added as pop up classes. We develop programs for all ages, helping to better your overall wellness through movement and nutrition. Instead of just handing you a program we work hand in hand with you and your care team (if you have one) educating you as we make changes. From an 8 year old who is a ‘picky eater’ to a 15 year old who is self conscious about their weight and wants to find movement that they love. To the professional athlete all the way through to those in their 80s and yes even 90s trying to walk the best path for lifelong wellness, we can help you reach your goals. KRAVE classes are designed to be fun and effective!
