Won’t Back Down 553

Happy Memorial Day Weekend '23! Last time in Chicago to visit my daughter and son-in-law (Mother's Day weekend), I squeezed in a morning Peloton ride...my first time with Tunde Oyeneyin. WOW...Tunde's 45 minute HIIT & Hills Ride (current leaderboard rank 5,557/46,626 - 493 kj output - 632 kcal burn) was one of my top Peloton … Continue reading Won’t Back Down 553

First Ride: 4G Athletic (Jenison, MI)

One final shout-out to the owners, trainers, employees, and members that made this a first-class, one-of-a-kind studio and fitness community! I remember my FIRST RIDE visit in 2018…after hearing lots of great things from so many people in the SW area of greater Grand Rapids. Best wishes to all as one chapter closes…and another opens! RIDE ON!

After May 2023, 4G ATHLETIC will permanently close.

Sadly, we’ve lost many great public, group fitness businesses in the area in the wake of the extending and lingering Covid pandemic. Others include: The Dailey Method, CycleBar, Shape Your Life Studios, and Allegro Coaching.

All the best to the others who continue to offer a great venue and fitness program in the greater GR area! (Greater GR YMCA, MVP, Lunar Cycle, Spoke, Yoga Fever, Evolve Fitness, The KROC Center, Walker Ice & Fitness, and others…)

It’s only been a couple weeks since my last FIRST RIDE post, but since I never actually did the class, I thought I would finally visit 4G Athletic, which opened nearly a year ago.

This facility is like four boutique studios in one…4G is short for 4 Groups: Bike, Flow (Yoga), Lift (think Body Pump), and Move (think Bootcamp with treadmill, rowing, TRX, and weights)…all under one roof.

Each of the four groups has it’s own dedicated and enclosed space in the building, along with an open reception area, changing rooms, bathrooms (no showers), and water station.  By design, the extras are minimal, to keep the pricing down.  Just bring your own water, shoes, towel, etc. and 4G provides a remarkable fitness facility, equipment, and staff!





There is some serious West Michigan fitness money behind 4G…MVP Sports Clubs
