$49 for Two Weeks of Unlimited Fitness Classes ($100 Value)
Fitness classes whip bodies into shape with a smorgasbord of routines. This roster includes limb-elongating hot yoga and fat-burning spin classes that simulate outdoor cycling with a theater-size screen. This screen shows footage of Hawaiian Hills and Death Valley, the valley in which Darth Vader will retire when his pension kicks in. Early-morning, lunchtime, and evening sessions pack a robust schedule, and patrons who redeem their classes by May 29 will receive two additional free weeks of classes. Flex + Fit offers validated parking for up to two hours.
Flex + Fit
Flex + Fit cultivates an environment focused on well-being, from sweat-inducing fitness classes to habit-changing cooking classes. This effort was lauded by Charlotte Magazine in its 2012 Best of the Best feature. The group fitness curriculum includes sweat-inducing hot yoga, in which limbs bend and stretch in a studio stoked to the ideal temperature, and air classes that suspend students from the ceiling to execute mid-air yoga, ballet, or fitness moves, or—as recently featured on CNN—to nap.
Complementing the fitness classes are lessons in culinary exploration, hosted by head chefs and tour guides that teach small gatherings to craft meals and sip complimentary libations in an on-site kitchen. The fitness studio’s natural-wood floors give way to a wall-mounted Buddha figurine at the head of classes, and his-and-hers locker rooms lavish hard-working muscles with a soothing downpour from overhead showers bred from two prize-winning Amazonian rain clouds.
The classes are challenging and there's plenty of variety to keep me interested and my muscles challenged.Chelsea S., Yelp, 12/11/11
