About X Shadyside

Since 1994, X Shadyside 24 Hour Health and Fitness has been a leader in providing the most modern fitness solutions in the Shadyside, Squirrel Hill, Oakland, and other East End communities of Pittsburgh. Recognized for our convenient location, contemporary equipment, and strong group exercise program; we are absolutely dedicated to providing our members with the best in fitness!

Seated on Walnut Street, directly in the heart of the Shadyside business district, our convenient location allows for very easy access to the facility, and a majority of our members are able to travel to and from the club by foot! The closeness of the members to the club creates a familial element not often found in fitness facilities. Our friendly staff, “boutique” feel, and comfortable atmosphere are what makes X Shadyside unique.

At X, it has always been our mission to offer the best and most up-to-date of what fitness has to offer. That said, X Shadyside has very recently undergone some tremendous changes. We are beyond proud to present to you, both current and future members alike, the finished product of what has come to be known over the past year as our X Evolution.

To supplement the aforementioned preexisting 13,000 square feet of space housing upwards of 200 pieces of weight-training equipment, a group fitness studio, a yoga/pilates studio, locker rooms and massage room, X Shadyside has now expanded into an additional 7,000 square feet of space.

The acquisition of this first-floor space has allowed for the introduction of a brand new and improved cardio area. This stylish and airy new section of our facility boasts a multitude of state-of-the-art TRUE® treadmills, upright bicycles, recumbent bicycles, and elliptical trainers; all equipped with personalized Cardio Theater. To further enhance the area, we have also added a circuit of brand new PARAMOUNT® strength equipment, allowing for convenient and effective interval training.

Across the hall from the cardio space we have added a brand new cycling studio, featuring a booming surround-sound stereo system and 18 brand new SCHWINN® indoor stationary bicycles, available for members to use at any time. Likewise, we have opened our first ever Personal Training Core and CrossFit studio, offering new and innovative equipment including a PARAMOUNT® Functional Trainer, a TRUEStretch® flexibility trainer, and a Wavemaster® heavy bag.

Finally, our latest development has been the opening of our sister company, Planet Smoothie®, right next door! Using whole, real fruit and their own patented agave and stevia based LeanLeaf sweetener, Planet Smoothie promises you “The Best Tasting Smoothie on the Planet!” — WITHOUT the extra calories!

More than 40 weekly group exercise classes are offered and included with all X Shadyside memberships. Classes include Les Mills™ BODYATTACK™ and BODYPUMP™, Zumba®, cycling, and a variety of yoga and pilates classes, which range from beginner to advanced levels. Find the perfect classes for you and discover the benefits of working out with a group!

If you prefer a more one-on-one fitness routine rather than working with a group, X Shadyside has certified personal trainers on staff with over 40 years of experience collectively, all of whom have a passion and desire to help you work toward reaching your personal fitness goals through a unique exercise program designed specifically for you.

Daily use of the locker rooms and showers are also available to all members. In addition, massage and tanning are available on-site.If you have not yet had the chance to visit us at X Shadyside, we would love for you to drop by! Stop in any time for a personal tour.
