Get ready to sweat: a new circuit training gym has opened up shop in the neighborhood. The fresh addition to SoMa, called Epic Hybrid Training, is located at 604A 3rd St. (between Brannan St & Townsend St).

Open since early July, it's the first San Francisco location for the franchise, which already has outposts in New York, Miami and Providence, and is unrolling Washington, D.C. and Bridgeport, Conn. locations soon. 

Billed as a circuit-style fitness program "that injects the fun back into fitness," Epic's program focuses on a combination of cardio, strength training and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Class prices range from $35 for a drop-in class up to $349/month for an unlimited membership; there's a one week all access pass for $29 for newcomers. (See the classes offered, here.)

Epic Hybrid Training has proven popular thus far, with a five-star rating out of two reviews on Yelp.

SK A., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on July 11th, said: "EPIC IS AMAZING!!! I tried their week pass and I'm hooked. Being a fitness enthusiast and I enjoy group workouts and have tried them all! Epic by far is one of the best workouts I've ever had."

Yelper Dorothy H. added: “I took my first class at Epic SF last weekend: Versaflex w/ Vishal! Even though I'm 34 weeks pregnant and I still got a lot out of the class. The instructor gave me individual attention."

Intrigued? Stop in to try it for yourself. Epic Hybrid Training is open weekdays from 5pm–8pm, and weekends from 8:30am–11:30am.

2100 Market Street, formerly Home, Church Street Station, and The Truck Stop, makes appearance in 'Doodler' podcast

The one-story, flatiron-shaped building that once lived at 2100 Market was home to multiple businesses over several decades. One of its brief incarnations in the 1970s, a 24-hour diner called The Truck Stop, figures into the unsolved case of "The Doodler," a serial killer who preyed on gay men in San Francisco, and about whom Chronicle reporter Kevin Fagan has just done a new podcast.
