At Serenity Valley, skilled instructors design golf-geared workouts to help budding golfers bulk up their bodies and bolster their technique. Club-wielding Groupon customers can utilize the PGA Tour golf simulator for one hour, whose camera system records each swing and hole-in-one victory cartwheel. Instructors then play back the video frame by frame to analyze golfers' techniques and discuss areas for improvement. Simulator sessions also include a full-body assessment, during which each student's posture, strength, and flexibility are measured and recorded on needlepoint pillows. After the analysis, students delve into a personalized workout that incorporates Pilates, stretching, and strength-based exercises to build core strength. The workout targets muscles used during golf games, helping golfers master a swing as smooth and powerful as a slow dance with a tub of margarine.

In a hot room covered in Himalayan salt, yoga practitioners strike poses and breathe deep, feeling suddenly as if they have been transported to a waterfall or a mountain top after a rainstorm. Rebirth Yoga studio added Himalayan salt to their hot yoga room because numerous fans credit the coral-hued crystals with releasing negative ions, the same ions that make the air feel so crisp after a rainstorm. Himalayan salt’s negative ions help purify the air and bring it into optimal iconic balance, which is said to restore health and wellness to those who spend time in the salt’s presence. Infrared heat warms the salt room, allowing muscles to relax and become more flexible, as friendly, experienced instructors guide practitioners into each twist and pose. Other classes include room-temperature fitness sessions such as Pilates, dumbbell-assisted yoga, Zumba, and bootcamp.
