Real Estate Roundup: Body20 coming to M-K-T – The Leader

A new type of workout regimen is coming to one of the area’s bustling mixed use developments.

The M-K-T development at 600 N. Shepherd Dr. in the Heights announced May 18 that its newest tenant, Body20, is shooting for a summer or fall opening at the development. It will be located trailside at M-K-T next to Honeychild’s Sweet Creams.

“Body20 provides a tailored workout that uses electric muscle stimulation to increase muscle contractions, providing you a more thorough workout and in only 20 minutes,” M-K-T said on Facebook.

Body20’s website says its workout uses an FDA-approved electrical stimulation suit, which will deliver isolated stimulation coupled with a one-on-one workout program to produce results. According to the company’s website, a 20-minute customized exercise session with a personal trainer will give a person’s body 150 times more muscle contractions than a standard gym workout.
