Five years ago I took my first class at Arrichion Durham (Bloodstone). I remember thinking after class that it was tough, but not sure it was right for me. One thousand eight hundred and forty one classes later, I think I am ready to write a review. In a word, this place is Awesome! The instructors (from Little Lemon to the Mean Gentleman) are incredible folks who find new ways to teach and motivate each and every class (Trust Me)! I encourage everyone to give Arrichion.Durham a try. You may not be sure after your first class, but then again neither was I.

Love Arrichion! I try to convince everyone to come with me :) There's a great mix of classes for different levels, and all of the instructors I've had have been so great. Welcoming, friendly, encouraging and helpful.

Arrichion is THE best! You have so many different classes to choose from and you leave feeling with the awesome combination of tired yet empowered (and absolutely drenched). Not to mention the incredible teachers and community they’ve created. Definitely worth a try!!

For the past 3 years I have been coming to Arrichion Durham, and it has become the highlight of my day. I struggle with several health conditions that make it very difficult to have the energy and motivation to exercise. The owners (Marissa & Steve), teachers, and people who go to Arrichion turn a studio full of hot, sweaty bodies who come through the doors from all different walks of life, into a place where regardless of age, appearance, or fitness level; all are welcome and all belong. My doctors are astounded at how strong I have become and the quality of life I am able to maintain because of Arrichion. The classes are a great mixture of hot yoga poses, flow, weights/cardio, and they even have a non heated class!
They also give you the chance to meet the people you are around each day to further develop relationships with the people you see often.
Thank you for the opportunity to experience a place like this...I don't know anywhere else you will find such great personalities, or a Marissa and Steve, [especially A STEVE...who, shows he’s most excited you’re a part of his classes if he yells at you—you will end up loving him as much as all the rest of us]. Thank you for creating a unique family, and making a room full of sweaty people who over half you don't know that well, feel like a home. ❤️

This is fantastic mix of personal training, yoga, and weight lifting which results in a little something for everyone. I would recommend it to anyone looking for an easy way to get into fitness, or someone who really wants to challenge themselves.

The owners have created and continue to nurture an inclusive, no-judgement, familial culture at the studio. Consequently other clients tend to be kind, helpful and motivating. The workouts themselves are challenging and it's nice to have a wide variety of class-types to choose from...you can kind of tailor your experience to your mood/goals for a given day and still feel like you did something good for your body. I'm glad I joined!
