Frequently Asked Questions

Blissful Balance strengthens the body and heals the mind through our ultimate fitness & wellness program, developed by Amanda Riley. We go beyond what normal fitness studios can provide because we combine both mental and physical approaches that are necessary to improve your entire health.

What is the Commit 2 Fit program?
Commit 2 Fit a complete fitness and wellness program that integrates a variety of healing and strengthening for the mind, body and spirit through a unique combination of yoga, hiit and resistance training. It was designed to tone the body, increase muscle mass, torch calories, provide a positive community, improve mental and physical confidence and to help build the essential skills to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.

What is an infrared sauna?
An infrared sauna or as we like to call it the ‘Hot Box of Healing’ is an incredible tool for healing and relaxation. A conventional sauna heats up the air, causing one to sweat and therefore detox.

The only thing that an infrared sauna shares in common with a conventional sauna is that it is a wood box. An infrared sauna uses light waves (near, mid and far-each having their own benefit) to penetrate the cells for a variety of benefits-detoxification, relaxation, weight loss, pain relief, lower blood pressure, improved circulation, skin purification, wound healing, cell health, muscle recovery and increase immunity.

What times do you offer classes?
Here is our most current class schedule. We can also schedule personal training sessions outside our normal class hours. You can book your PT session by calling Amanda Riley at 651-399-4297 messaging us on Facebook or by sending an email to You can also join our online program to complete your workouts at your convenience (which is also included with our in-studio package). Just go to our registration page to get started.

Do you offer an online class?
Yes. We understand that many moms and dads are busy and constantly on the go. There are also many people who prefer to do their workouts in the comfort of their own home. That is why we also created the online Commit 2 Fit program. It is a private class and positive community – where we bring the whole experience from our in-studio class right to your mobile phone, tablet or computer and is available to you 24/7.

When can I use the meditation room?
The meditation room is open during our normal business hours and has a variety of packages available to fit all budgets. The BioMat is available by appointment only and is for one person at a time, but we have five other spaces available for self-meditation. This ocean inspired peaceful space will give you all you need for an incredible meditation, but if you would like to go deeper please bring your favorite meditation and headphones. The BioMat will be by appt. only, otherwise you can drop in at your convenience.

What is healing touch therapy?
Healing touch therapy helps balance, rejuvenate and restore our innate natural energy state, which gets depleted or imbalanced from to stress, illness, injury, grief or depression and from medical conditions. Healing touch creates an optimal environment that allows healing to occur. Gentle and/or over-head touches are performed near affected parts of the body in a very relaxed environment. This is a cost effective and all-natural approach to healing pain and distress. Call Denise Wills at 651-353-9309 or email to schedule your appointment today.

Why is Blissful Balance so different than other fitness studios?
There is no other local fitness studio that offers a complete wellness program like Blissful Balance. By incorporating both fitness and wellness together into one program, you will begin to transform your body and mind together rather than just only focusing on your body. Our minds need exercise, de-stressing and to be nourished with consistent positive energy. Often our days are too busy and stressful, which drastically impacts our health. By incorporating exercise to the mind and body, you will feel the positive effects far beyond after the endorphins wear off from a normal workout.

At Blissful Balance, we like to show complete gratitude of our bodies and unveil its true capabilities. Emotional issues can inhibit success and can also be a reason why you can’t seem to reach your fitness and wellness goals. That’s why we want to help you migrate through that and clear it out. Pain is the body communicating. Our goal is to help teach you how to listen to your body when it sends important signals of imbalance. We also want you to have a body that you love looking at by showing it complete gratitude. You deserve better health and to become blissfully balanced – that’s our promise!

How much does it cost to join?
Here is our most current pricing. Classes start as low as $37/month. No annual dues. There is a one time registration fee for online classes only.

Will I have to change my current diet?
Absolutely not, but we will encourage you to build and maintain healthy eating habits that will help you hit your goals. Food is fuel for your body. We will work together to find foods that give your body the proper nutrients that it needs to work efficiently. We like to focus on the right combination of fats, proteins and carbohydrates that best energize the body, optimize wellness and allow your body to perform at its best capabilities.

How big are your classes?
Classes vary, but do not exceed 12 people. This size allows for us to make personal progressions or regressions for each client, which is very important to us at Blissful Balance. We want to personally guide and coach you through your wellness journey.

Do you offer personal training sessions?
