Laced with elements of yoga, Pilates, and gymnastics, the women-only classes at Aradia Fitness sculpt lean, toned physiques. And though physical fitness is a cornerstone of the studio, it's not the only one. Classes foster certain amount of unrestrained confidence that, as Aradia puts it, “teach[es] women to unapologetically love their body and themselves.” With locations in Canada, Aradia’s certified fitness instructors provide a studio environment that is safe for ladies of all shapes and sizes. No matter the class, the environment at Aradia is always lighthearted, nurturing, and more supportive than a stainless-steel hammock. Ladies may gather their friends and book the studio for a girl's night out, birthday, or bachelorette party.
Posses of up to seven body-buffers of all ages and experience levels gather in No Excuse Fitness and Training's bright, open studio for more than 20 bicep-chiseling group workouts each week. Spar with sneaky shadows or smack a smug bag during a strenuous 12-round boxing-intervals workout that can burn up to a thousand calories, the equivalent of one stick of deep-fried butter, in a single session. The gym's staff of professional and amateur pugilists, including owner and seasoned boxer Ryan Rannelli, teach aspiring fighters during a technical boxing session that covers punches, footwork, and evasive techniques for outsmarting turnstiles. A grab bag of constantly changing Challenge of the Day workouts diversifies the muscle-maxing activity mix. Clients can also drop in on their own for independent iron pumping in the fully outfitted gym or receive a dose of nutrition and lifestyle advice from a trainer as a part of the Fitness and Lifestyle Improvement Program (FLIP).
Shanti Yoga Studio's talented teachers transport students to a place of peace through yoga, Pilates, and meditation classes. Your Groupon is valid for classes in Kundalini, Hatha, and Kripalu yoga as well as Pilates and meditation. Try stretching out stuck up cellular stress in a strengthening Hatha yoga course or by exploring the Narnia of the mind through a chanting and meditation class, which utilizes sounds, chants, and silence to achieve Yoda-like wisdom and grammar skills. Pliable people and beginners alike can develop increased body awareness and muscle control in the Pilates class, and Kundalini yoga focuses on deliberate movement to direct energies towards the great meatball in the sky. Check out the schedule for class availability at both locations.
The certified yoga instructors at Sol Yoga Burlington believe in the value of connecting to the self and to others, and in achieving spiritual wholeness. They help their students work toward that state with more than 20 classes per week in their newly built hot yoga studio. In addition to standard classes, hot classes are held in the detoxifying warmth of far infrared light, which helps people sweat, breathe easily, and heat leftover soup. Learn the basic poses in a Fundamentals class, or turn things up in a Level 2 session, where students flow though a series of challenging poses for a more intense workout. There are also frequent workshops and teacher training sessions, and you can drop off the kids at the onsite childcare center.
The friendly instructors at the sleek and fully equipped studio are fully certified in the STOTT Pilates method, a contemporary form of Pilates that incorporates modern exercise-science principles into traditional practices, resulting in a safe and highly effective workout. Several different levels of mat classes are offered at Studio Zee, and the flexible class schedule offers enough weekly courses to accommodate busy schedules. Sign up for a beginner mat class to pick up basic Pilates principles and blueberry-pie recipes, or opt for a higher-level class to strengthen ab muscles in preparation for an upcoming tightrope walk. The studio’s limited class sizes allow instructors the luxury of lavishing students with personal attention and a workout customized to their own pace.
The grappling gurus at Gravity Climbing Gym take a friendly approach to instruction during their Indoor Rock 101 class, stressing fun over heights achieved and safety over everything. Knowledgeable instructors outfit ascendant amateurs in a harness and shoes before showing them the ropes, knots, and belay skills required to scale with safety and success. Like medical school, a single lesson at Gravity equips students with enough information to strike out on their own. After completing the lesson, newly christened climbers are free to roam the gym and test their technique on Gravity's varied climbing walls.
