New Carmel Valley gym Red Effect Infrared Fitness opens its doors

A new interval training gym has opened its doors in the neighborhood. Located at 11130 E. Ocean Air Drive in Carmel Valley, the newcomer is called Red Effect Infrared Fitness.

The gym employs infrared therapy in its fitness classes, which has shown to have benefits like reduced joint pain and faster recovery. It offers interval training, kickboxing, circuit training, cycling, barre and yoga classes. There are also personal infrared sauna booths.

The new gym has gotten an enthusiastic response thus far, with a five-star rating out of three reviews on Yelp.

Sara S., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on March 19, wrote, "Burning that many calories in one session was unbelievable. I loved the way I felt after — I swear the infrared is like a facial every time I work out — and the trainers are unparalleled."

Yelper Emilee L. added, "You work out in infrared light (great for burning more calories, has helped with my complexion, and helps with improving blood flow) and they offer 3 different types of workouts: IT Fitness (interval training), cycling, and kickboxing."

Swing on by to take a peek for yourself: Red Effect Infrared Fitness is open from 5 a.m.–7:30 p.m. on weekdays, 7:30 a.m.–11:30 p.m. on Saturday and 7:30 a.m.-12 p.m. on Sunday.
