- A Pilates and yoga studio with Pilates reformer equipment
- State-of-the-art entertainment system with individual screens on 20 pieces of cardio equipment plus five big screens
- Spin bikes

The 7,000 square foot addition also ushered in broader class offerings: Spin, Power Pump, Pilates Reformer, Dance Dance Revolution and gymnastics. "Our patrons love it!" reported South Run's Fitness Director, Laurie Strickland. "We've gone from 1,100 square feet to 7,000 square feet with state-of-the-art equipment, great vistas and incredible light. They keep telling us how lucky they feel, and we're seeing an increase in fitness participation and success."
