The Dirt: Hotworx fitness studio coming to Spokane Valley

Hotworx, a 24-hour infrared fitness studio, is coming to Spokane Valley.

Spokane-based Eighty8 Architecture submitted a building permit application with the city to convert a space in a multi-tenant commercial building at 1222 N. Pines Road into a Hotworx studio.

The building is also home to Spokane Family Dental.

Hotworx offers its members unlimited, 24-hour access to a variety of virtually instructed, infrared sauna workouts. Each sauna can accommodate up to three people per session. Members can choose from workouts that include hot yoga, hot Pilates and hot cycle, among others.

A project contractor has not yet been determined. The permit valuation is $150,000, according to the application.

Hotworx has more than 100 franchise locations nationwide, including one at 3028 S. Grand Blvd. on the South Hill.

Trevor Kettrick is owner of Hotworx on the South Hill. It’s unclear if Kettrick is behind the Hotworx studio in Spokane Valley, as an owner was not specified on the application.

Kettrick was not immediately available for comment.
