"Get in shape" hovers near the top of many New Year's resolution lists, right next to "deal with raccoon infestation" and "figure out how raccoons get trapped in the TV." Stop watching so many TV shows starring raccoons with today's Groupon: for $25, you get 29 visits and two complimentary personal-training sessions at Being-Fit (a $348 value). This Groupon is valid for visits to both of the center's Clairemont and Mira Mesa locations.
Being-Fit's welcoming instructors and staff invite exercisers of all backgrounds to lift, flex, and stretch toward personal health goals in a supportive workout environment. The gym's full complement of exercise machines, equipment, and functional mountain of purgatory challenges visitors structuring their own workout routines, and 26 classes led by certified instructors help students pump and lunge while surrounded by like-minded peers. A rotating schedule includes Body Sculpting sessions—full body exercises that can harden corporeal forms with resistance drills using weights, tubes, and bands. Muscle Conditioning classes cross-train pupils in step, barbell, and dumbbell routines that help sculpt muscles and build endurance before class-ending floor work uses mops and dust pans to fortify thighs and abs. Time evaporates in Zumba, whose Latin-blasted rhythms effortlessly sway hips into energetic, cardio-pumping numbers, and yoga sessions calm the mind and bend bodies toward greater balance and flexibility through held poses and steady breathing exercises.
Both of Being-Fit's locations employ personal trainers with physiology degrees and national certification to assist fitness-seekers in designing routines suited to their individual needs and number of torsos. Through a variety of exercise options and nutritional advice, trainers empower clients to shed weight, tone muscles, and make long-lasting improvements to their physical well-being.
The year 1986 was a health- and fitness-focused one. Mike Tyson became the youngest heavyweight boxing champion in history, smoking was banned on all forms of public transportation, and Being-Fit opened its doors. The gym sought to supply its members with everything they needed to reach their personal fitness goals. Though its equipment has been overhauled, Being-Fit’s mission hasn't changed in the intervening two decades.
Today, the gym's trainers host more than 30 varieties of group fitness classes, including yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, and Zumba. When not in class, students can take advantage of the cardio theater, where favorite shows and video clips of kittens wiping out on treadmills play constantly as people jog in place. Additionally, the gym’s personal trainers construct individualized workouts during one-on-one sessions, equipping members with repeatable exercises crafted to address personal fitness goals.
