“I would say the overwhelming response from our members has been, to coin a phrase from one of our members, it’s their happy spot. It gives them time in their day to focus on themselves.”
About Hotworx Indian Trail
A herniated disc led Holley and Tim Skelly to a HOTWORX fitness studio. They appreciated the company so much, they started their own franchise at 6467 Old Monroe Rd Ste B, Indian Trail, NC 28079 in 2022.
“I was in a lot of pain and the doctor said there wasn’t much they could do besides therapy.” Holley shared. “So, I saw an ad for HOTWORX. They use infrared technology which I knew was good for inflammation. Just three months after I joined, I was pain-free. It changed my life so much that I got my husband Tim to come. But we were driving 35 minutes, one way, to get to the gym. We wanted one closer to home. So, we found space in Indian Trail and were able to open a franchise.”
Union County has always been supportive, according to Tim. “It’s been less than a year since we opened, and we have close to 600 members. Everyone feels like family. We have people that are workout buddies. They met when they started coming, and now they schedule their workouts together.” Tim added. “We have people from 12 to 75 years old. It’s for every fitness level, and every age. Everybody is welcome.”
Giving back to the community is important to Tim and Holley. “Turning Point is one our main charities of choice. They do so much for women, children and sometimes men, who are in the midst of an abusive situation and need help. Our members continue to make us proud by donating items and supporting this amazing organization.”
What Customers Can Expect
HOTWORX bills itself as “more workout in less time” which Tim says is a differentiator. “In a standard workout, you spend the first 15-20 minutes warming up. When you’re working out inside a sauna, you’re warm pretty quick. We are also open 24/7 for members, which allows you to get a session in at the time that you choose and in a more condensed workout time frame.”
“We have nine total infrared saunas, of which five are isometric workouts like Hot Yoga, Hot Pilates, Hot ISO, and Hot Barre. We also have four saunas with cycles, Blast (total body trainer), and rowing machines giving the option for a very high-intensity workout. Isometric sessions are every 45 minutes, and the HIIT workouts are every 15 minutes so you can get a really, really good workout in as little as 15 minutes and then go on with your day. We also have what’s called the FX Zone, which is free weights and allows for that weight training as well.”
“All the sessions are virtually trained, so you’re not waiting around for a trainer to show up and they are always on time,” according to Holley. She also says there are many benefits to the infrared technology which penetrates about an inch and a half into your skin.
“The results and benefits include Muscle Recovery, Pain Relief, Stress Reduction, Weight Loss, Increased Calorie Burn, Detoxification, Lower Blood Pressure, Cellulite Reduction, Anti-Aging and Skin Rejuvenation and Improved Circulation….and it certainly has helped me. Along with the fitness aspect of it, HOTWORX has changed my life, and I wanted to share it.”
What Celebrity Spokesperson Would You Choose for Hotworx Indian Trail?
“I spoke with our HOTWORX team and asked who they thought would be the right person. The answers ranged from Selena Gomez and Lizzo to Jennifer Anniston and Zac Efron. We just believe that whoever represents and champions a healthy lifestyle that is inclusive of all people and promotes self-confidence would be the person HOTWORX Indian Trail would choose. “
